No. The camera does not include any charging circuitry.

If you need a replacement charger, you can get one from the manufacturer at http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_accessories.asp?id=1318&ct=2

    Actually you can charge the x-940 directly from a USB port on a laptop or other USB wall charger. The main reason I bought this camera was the USB charging so I have one less charger to carry when travelling on business. It doesn't use a standard USB connector on the camera though so you need to take the cable that comes in the box with the camera.

    Sam, what you say about the X-940 is true. However, the original question was about the FE-280, which does not charge via the USB.

HOW TO CHARGE THE BATTERY


You are not indicating what brand and model of digital camera are you using, so all I can help you is by giving you a generic answer:
Some cameras use a battery charger, You need to remove your battery ,insert it in charger and insert charger in a wall outlet.
Other cameras use adapters that let you charge fro USB port of a computer or from wall outlet, without removing the battery.
You should check which one do you have

Replaced battery since it wasn't holding a charge. Has been plugged in for 24 hrs, still won't power on when unplugged from wall charger. What course of action should I attempt?


Possibly the charger itself is bad and only operating as a electrical connection/power cord for your camera. Try borrowing or buying another charger or take the camera to a local camera repair center or Best Buy, etc or contact customer service for your camera's manufacturer.
Hope this helps. Mike

Nikon s6300 won't turn on


Coolpix Cameras are tricky to use with chargers. I will assume your USB Charger EH-69P is 100 - 240V 50/60 Hz so it CAN work in many places around the world with an adapter. Do not go over 240V or you could damage it.

These cameras like to have the power supply connected when it is on to charge - meaning if you have it connected and you plug the charger in the wall it will NOT charge. So if you plug the charger in the wall first and then plug the cable in the camera it will work. The camera is actually ON when it charges and I never REMOVE the memory card when it is ON.

When you have a dead battery. Plug the camera in and make sure the ON LED lights and the Charge LED flashes. Then don't mess with it. Let it charge completely (Charge LED stops flashing and is OFF) and then unplug it. It will turn off. Then later you can turn it on.

Z1015 won't charge battery internally. this battery was working


Hello, Is the battery in the camera or in the charger ?? Don't quite understand the question. You wrote "received correct wall charger AC/DC ?" was that a question concerning the new charger ? it sounds like your not quite sure about the charger.
Best Regards, Russell

I have no manual and cannot get it to charge from my PC or the cord plugged into the wall outlet. It does not turn on at all.o


You may download a copy of the manual from here.

The VPC-T1284 is a camera, not a battery charger. It does not charge the battery via the USB port. Please use the supplied battery charger.

I bought an untested Samsung L730 digital camera without a battery, I have bought a USB charger/data cable but the orange flashing light on the charger stays on. I am using Windows XP. Is it likely that...


You CANNOT charge a camera through a USB port there just is not enough power! you need to get an original wall charger and power up from that. Even the USB cable/wall charger will NEVER charge it up sufficiently.
The USB cable is for data transfer only.

I need to charge this camera


There are two ways to charge the battery. One is to use the supplied battery charger. Remove the battery from the camera, put the battery into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet. The other is to use the supplied USB cable. Plug one end of the cable into the camera and the other end into an USB port on a computer or other power source.

If any of the parts were missing when you opened the package, contact the retailer or the manufacturer directly at http://vivitar.com

The camera should have come with an MH-62 battery charger. Put the battery into the charger and plug the charger into a wall outlet.

If you acquired your camera without a charger, you can order one from Nikon at http://www.nikonmall.com
