So many people think that you charge a camera via USB - but seriously, I haven't seen a single one that does it that way (I think it's because cameras use so much power, it would overwhelm the USB port, either that or it would take forever). Unfortunately, you probably lost in the move your CHARGER unit. It's a small plug-in unit; you have to take the SLB-10A Lithium Ion battery out of the camera, and slot it in to the charger unit in order to charge it.
I wish I could find an image of one, so that you'd know what you were rummaging for in your moving boxes, but sadly, they seem to look different in different parts of the world, so I can't be sure what yours looks like. If you have the manual, there might be a picture right at the beginning, although it probably has an asterisk with a footnote that says yours might be different.
If you don't find it, take the battery out and double check the part number (SLB-10A) and then search Amazon or somewhere for a SLB-10A charger unit. Good luck.
Some phones charge the battery in the camera like a phone, but many do not. The USB connection is meant to be used to transfer photos from the camera to a computer. If your (now lost) charger was plugged into the camera to charge it, and it plugged into the USB connector, then you can charge the camera with any lead that will fit the USB connector, as this will have a standard voltage. You can even charge it from the computer, without buying a separate charger.
However, if your charger charged the batteries outside the phone, by removing them from the phone and placing them in the charger, then it is very unlikely that they will charge in the phone, whatever you connect to it. I have a camera just like this, that requires an external charger.
You can find battery packs and chargers for almost everything ever made on ebay. Read the descriptions carefully and be sure to check the shipping charges. Most of these sellers move a lot of merchandise (perhaps from China or other foreign sources) so they usually will stand behind their products. Hope you find yours.
YOU PEOPLE IT IS JUST THE BATTERY THAT IS IN IT!.. BECAUSE THAT BATTERY IS NOT ONLY FOR AFTER IT IS CHARGED IT ALSO WORKS TO SHOW THE DISPLAY SCREEN! BECAUSE IF YOU TAKE OUT THE BATTERY THE LIGHT STAYS ON WHILE ITS PLUGGED INTO THE COMPUTER! MY BF IS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM TRY BUYING A NEW BATTERY!! ITS THE SOLUTION! the battery is caput!
I have the same camera. I don't think you can charge the battery without the dock, unless you find a separate charger for the Lithium battery it comes with. It's a Lenmar 3.7V/700mAh type battery. I looket it up on radioshack. I lost my charger RCA jack power chord. I am trying to find a new one. If you have any luck, post an answer.
