Camera only works when charger is plugged into the wall outlet

My camera only works when the charger is plugged into the wall outlet.But as soon as I take the charger out of my camera it will not turn on. I have tried everything... I have bought a new battery, new charger, let it charge all night, plug it into many outlets,deleted all images and video, and reset the camera. My camera has been like this for about 2 months.The camera works perfectly when plugged in but it will not even turn on when it is not plugged in.Can you help?

Your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

BATTERY CHARGER IS THIS A SERPERATE ITEM


That depends on the camera.
Some cameras include battery charging circuitry. You plug the camera into a wall outlet or a USB port and it charges the battery. Some cameras come with a separate battery charger which plugs into a wall outlet or a USB port. Some cameras use standard batteries, disposable or rechargeable. With these you need to use a separate battery charger compatible with the type of batteries.

If you're asking about a specific camera, please add a comment to your question and specify the make and model of the camera.

Where on the camera do I plug in the charger


If you're using the charger that comes with the camera, it doesn't plug into the camera at all. Take the battery out of the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet.

If you're using the USB cord, it plugs into the camera on the left end (as viewed from the back).

M530 Digital Camera, how to charge it


Assuming you're referring to a Kodak M530, you can charge the battery in one of two ways:
  1. Use the supplied USB cable to connect the camera to the supplied adapter, and plug the adapter into a wall outlet.
  2. Take the battery out of the camera, put it into the supplied charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet.
If it's not a Kodak M530, please reply to this post specifying the make of the camera.

Will a usb cable fitting the Vivi Cam 8025 charge the lith battery; I can't locate a port on the camera to plug in a wall charger?


Yes, you can charge the 8025 through the USB port, assuming the computer puts out enough current to do so (not all USB ports do). Or you can take the battery out of the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet.

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

Tape stuck in camcorder


The way I can get a tape unjammed on my Sony camera is to remove the battery, plug the camera into the AC charger that is plugged into the wall outlet. Then power the camera on, wait a few seconds. Then unplug the charger from the outlet, wait a few more seconds (camera still in "on" position) and then plug it back in. I have used this method at least 3 times to get the camera to release the tape.

Where to get a vivitar vivicam 8025 wall charger or car charger


It should have come with an external battery charger with a wall charger.

Check the cell phone section of a department or electronics store. You should be able to find USB chargers that plug into wall outlets or cigarette lighters. You can use one of those along with the supplied USB cable to charge the camera.

On my camera the battery charger light is blinking and the battery is not charging


Before you get creative and directly plug your batter into an AC adapter, try something much easier first. I have the same problem with my Olympus 770SW batteries. As silly as it sounds, the charger will only work in a select few outlets in my house that I found by trial an error, actually pure frustration. I suggest, go around your house and plug the blinking charger in all the outlets and see if you find one that works. That sounds a lot less shocking than solution 1 and 2 now doesn't it? Good luck!
