The only way this can happen if the charger is damaged or the plug is ...so ...just to see if this is the reason ..I advice you to take the camera to the store where you can find a similar model ..and ask the seller to borrow a charger for a few seconds..and see if it charges with another one ...If it does.the issue is solved and all you have to do is either get another plug and replace the one from the charger..or get another charger from the dealer or ..from eBay....if another charger that is actually good for sure ..is behaving the same ..than the issue is either from the plug in the camera..or the battery wasn't formatted and now is gone ..and you need a new one .The last thing is possible only if you .damaged the battery by trying to charge it with another charger..or in direct contact ..or placing a source of power to it ..in the wrong sense..
or ..just died for a reason ...and this you will be able to check at the store also ..Just locate a dealer with the model and try ..a new adapter ... a new battery ..and see which one is to blame ..
Also ..check the contacts inside...to not be oxidized..clean them and lift the blades if case...maybe it is just a loose contact ..

    wow...if it is new...just get it back and change the battery or something ..cause you could not have any way to see if it charging until you drained it ...so ..go back and see whats wrong ..cause in no way its supposed to do that ..

    If the camera is worked..it means that the issue is either the charger>.(and it is possible cause it is the first time you used it and you have no way to know it until you need it)..or the battery ...But after you told me that its new..I will go for the faulty charger ..and they are obligated to change it ..I only hope you didn't bought it from the internet and have to wait for them to move like an old woman..
    If this is the case just check it like I told you ..locate a store with the model and ask the seller to try it ..and if another charger works..I will go for getting a new one myself cause if you are trying to change it ..it may affect the warranty ..and you will have to wait them until the hell freeze over ..a charger to match it can be that expensive ...:D To make a sick joke you already spent half its price on our site ...Have a nice day ..and I hope it will help you solve the issue..

    i didnt mention but I just got the camera 2 days ago, we used the battery until it drained and now when I plug it in I get nothing, think it could just be a bad usb cord?

    Yes, it could be . If you have the Multimeter, we could Quickly check all the Symptoms.

    for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!




  • jjmerle May 16, 2010

    ya i dont have a multimeter, soshould the camera connect to the computer even when the battery is so low, I mean shouldnt the computer still recognize the device? Cuz it doesnt.

  • taran_2005
    taran_2005 May 16, 2010

    Thanks for your response!!

    There could be many reasons for the same. Might be USB Port on the Camera is at Fault. That is a Rare Case, but it is a Possibility.So, i would doubt a Hardware Failure rather than Cord or Battery Problem.

    Let me know,so that we could proceed.

    Hope i helped you.

Had this tablet for one day, its showing 50% .. battery, when should I recharge..


There's no harm in keeping it on charge all the time. Unlike older rechargeables, newer Li-ion batteries don't need to be broken in by running them down and then recharging.

How do I charge the battery on a 1990 xlh sportster 1200


The voltmeter test provides general indicator of battery condition. Check the voltage of the battery to verify that it is in a 100 per cent fully charged condition. If the open circuit or disconnected voltage reading is below 12.6 V, charge the battery and then recheck the voltage after the battery has set for one to two hours. If the voltage reading is 12.8 V or above, perform the load test described below.



The load test measures battery performance under full current load and is the best indicator of battery condition. Load testing a battery tat is not FULLY CHARGED i.e. at 12.8 VDC can permanently damage it. Fully charge it first and then let it stand for at least an hour before the load test is done. You also need a load tester AND you should know how to perform a load test. Often the best way to load test a battery will be to take it to a battery shop and have it done there.



VOLTAGE and STATE OF CHARGE FOR AGM BATTERIES IS:

12.8 VDC is 100 per cent

12.6 VDC is 75 per cent

12.3 VDC is 50 per cent

12.0 VDC is 25 per cent

11.8 VDC is 0 per cent



COLD CRANKING AMPERAGE (CCA) for a DYNA battery is 270

Battery Charging Rates/Times (Approximate)



FOR A 19 AMP HOUR DYNA AGM BATTERY



BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE is 12.8 VDC is 100 per cent Charge; Rate of Charge is N/A



BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE is 12.6 VDC is 75 per cent Charge; Rate of Charge at 3 AMP is 1.75 hours at 6 AMP is 50 minutes at 10 AMP is 30 minutes at 20 AMP is 15 minutes



BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE is 12.3 VDC is 50 per cent Charge; Rate of Charge at 3 AMP is 3.5 hours at 6 AMP is 1.75 hours at 10 AMP is 1 hour at 20 AMP is 30 minutes



BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE is 12.0 VDC is 25 per cent Charge; Rate of Charge at 3 AMP is 5 hours at 6 AMP is 2.5 hours at 10 AMP is 1.5 hours at 20 AMP is 45 minutes



BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE is 11.8 VDC is 0 per cent Charge; Rate of Charge at 3 AMP is 6 hours, 40 minutes at 6 AMP is 3 hours, 20 minutes at 10 AMP is 2 hours at 20 AMP is 1 hour



The figures listed above assume that the battery is charging at room temperature. If warmer than room temperature, use a slightly shorter charging time. If colder, use a slightly longer charging time.



The use of constant current chargers to charge maintenance free batteries is not recommended. Any overcharge will cause dry out and premature battery failure. If a constant current charger is the only type available, do not exceed the charge times listed above and do not continue charging the battery if it gets hot. When charging, never exceed 15 volts for more than 30 minutes.



If the battery gets hotter than 110 degrees F or 43 degrees C during charging, discontinue charger and allow the battery to cool. Overheating may result in plate distortion, internal shorting, dry out and/or other damage.

The lithium battery won't charge


If the lithium battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Hi, The Li-ion battery cahrging circuitary is some what complex. For most chargers, the charging procedure is divided into three main phases: ? Pre-charging phase ? Constant-current-charging phase ? Constant-voltage-charging phase In the Pre-charging phase, it utilizes low charging current to protect the battery. However,in most recharging situations, the charged batteries still have some voltage remaining, so the charger does not need to apply this action, and just passes it on to the next charging phase. The constant current and voltage charging phases are the main charging phase for recharging the batteries, where most of the charging energy is transformed into the battery. The maximum charging current for a battery depends on the battery?s rated capacity. For example, one battery rated 700 mAh usually can be charged at 350 mAh to 400mA, for faster charging effort. When the charged battery is Li-Ion, in the last charging procedure, the microcontroller normally maintains regular charging voltage while monitoring charging current to determine when the charging procedure should be completed. When the battery is fully charged, most of the electrical energy is converted to thermal energy, which can result in high battery temperature. In this case, the temperature monitoring function will be added for the solution. But since most Li-Ion batteries on the market also have an over-charging protection function, the temperature detect function is rarely used. So it is better to get your phone charging circuitary checked at a local store rather than to make a charger,coz both may cost you almost same. all the best my friend. regards sreejith
