There are a number of causative problems that can lead to you battery not taking a charge, The charger itself may NOT be the problem, With a simple voltmeter it is easy to see if the charger is outputting the correct voltage. A multi-meter with a milliamp function can tell you if the current flow is correct by placing the meter in series with the the charging circuit (you can cut the positive lead from the charger to the camera and re splice it after the test is completed).

The voltage, amperage (charging rate) and type of current (AC or DC) is usually listed on the charger on a label or embossed in the plastic housing. If the voltage is OK but there is little or no current flow, the problem is probably in the battery- it has come to the end of its charge/discharge cycle and needs replacement. If there is no voltage coming from the charger it may need replacement but you must make sure it is exactly rated to accommodate you camera and battery, Batteries are DC. The input to you charger or the primary voltage is AC and needs to be stepped down and rectified to DC before it can safely charge the battery. Some chargers have the reactivation (conversion) built in to the charger- some have the output or secondary voltage still as AC and the rectifiers are in the camera. Just be sure all the specs match. If you can find the exact replacement unit- you don't have to take theses issues into consideration.. Sometimes the problem can just be a poor connection between the camera and the charger- check it out.

I hope this helps. Lightingman (Ed)

How do I charge it? theres no room for batteries and it wont charge on my laptop


Seems battery is pre fitted inside Camera, not all Cameras can be charged up on USP port. You then need the Camera battery charger, to charge from the mains

I don't know how to charge my fujifilm ax600 series


The AX600 is a camera, not a battery charger. It uses standard AA batteries, disposable or rechargeable. If you use rechargeable batteries, you need to charge them outside the camera using a separate battery charger.

How do i charge my kodak 8.0 digital camera


What model Kodak 8.0 megapixel camera? The M1063 is a 10 megapixel model.

Some Kodak cameras can charge the battery when you connect the camera to a power source. Some Kodak cameras come with a separate battery charger. Some Kodak cameras use disposable batteries. Without knowing the model of your camera I can't tell you how to charge your camera.

The VPC-S770R uses standard AA batteries. Chargers for rechargeable AA batteries should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. Do NOT try to recharge non-disposable alkaline or lithium batteries. Also bear in mind that the camera itself is not a battery charger. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then they must be charged outside the camera using a separate battery charger.

BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE Received a "Vivitar T328" camera yesterday. Inserted the supplied battery and a new memory card into the camera and connected the camera via "USB" cable to the supplied charger....


How old is the battery? If the battery is refurbished or old it might just not charge anymore.

Also, do you have a separate charger for the battery? Many cameras do and that is how they charge, not when the battery is still in the camera.

Can kodak CX7430 be charged with USB


A USB connection will not provide sufficient power to your camera and it could damage the internal board. You could opt for purchasing a AAA battery charger or buy a charger/ac adapter from eBay as they go around 10$. The model you're looking for is kws0325.

Good luck.

When the battery is in the charger it flashes red & won't charge, have no idea what problem is! Have casio exilim lithium ion NP-20 battery & a casio exilim 7.2 megapixels camera. Can't turn camera...


I called casio and they told me that when you have a red flashing light on the charger it means the lithium battery is no longer any good. They offered to send me one free of charge. It's been several weeks and I have yet to receive it.
