Battery exhausted message no battery charged

The manual says:
Confirm all connections.
Off is selected for Charge by computer in the setup menu.
When charging by connecting the camera to a computer, battery charging stops when the camera is turned off.
When charging by connecting the camera to a computer, battery charging stops if the computer is suspended (sleeping), and the camera may turn off.
Depending upon computer specifications, settings, and status, it may be impossible to charge the battery inserted into the camera via computer connection.
So be sure you are charging the correct way. Best way to do is to remove the battery and put it on the charger for a couple of hours. If you have the battery out, you can check all connections of battery and in the camera.
In trouble shooting, more than a full page is dedicated only to the battery and the method of charging. The manual is still online, but should also on the CD you got with the camera.

My camera will not charge

I find it interesting that you say the camera won't charge, rather than saying that the battery won't charge. Are you trying to charge the camera with the USB lead, in the same way that you can charge a phone or mp3 player? This kind of camera doesn't charge that way, I'm afraid. You have to take the battery out, and charge it in the charger supplied with the camera.

Charge battary without charger

Unfortunately this camera battery requires that the charger that came with the camera be used for charging purposes. It is not possible to connect the camera to the USB port of your computer and have it charge. The camera was not designed this way.

The main batter will not hold its charge when left in the camera.

After 12 months use camera batteries will not hold a true charge, but they can still be used for clocks, or remotes. Buy new ones. We all have the same problem.

Digital camera nv20

charging the NV20 is simple, just plugin the cable to the power supply and it will charge. Inorder to charge the camera you must leave the battery inside the camera and when it's done charging you will see the lit up arrow on the end of the cable turn from red to green.
