Question about Digital Cameras
Your AC adaptor has very likely failed.
Check the AC adaptor on your camera. Mine failed this morning after only 2 days of ownership. (I just purchased an Xacti HD2000 camera 02/05/09)
The Bad P/N I had was a Sanyo VAR-G9. Based on my very light use after two days, I expect these are totally trashy power adaptors and there are likely several hundred bad ones like it in the field Thats just a wild guess on my part, but after only two days, a unit like this should not fail at all.
The camera said "Low Battery", then could not be charged, then only the red light would flash.
I confirmed with a Digital Volt Meter that there was no 5.0V coming out of the AC/DC converter.
Radio Shack sells (and I bought) a replacement 5.0V 2.0A capable power adaptor. Take your unit in and they can help you. Make sure that you don't have any little children that may play with the voltage switch on the replacement, as any voltage over 5.0V can damage your camera.
With the replacement unit, my camera charges fine.
