I lost my power plug to charge my camera - my boyfriend suggested I plug it into our computer to charge it. I told him it wouldn't work, however left it in to appease his curiosity. Of course, it still wouldn't charge, but we found a plug that fit into the slot for a wall plug (one that he had I believe it was a 5V) but when we put it into the camera the charging light did not come on. Will this camera charge from the computer - and mine is just not working? Or is the 5V wall charger just not going to work on my camera?
I too lost my charger for my camvcorder when we went to Las Vegas and not sure where to get another one...its a Jazz DV179...anyone have a solution? have not used it in 3 years...used it once and that was it..please help!!! thanks
I found out finally - after replacing the battery and even buying a new charger that the camera just would not charge the battery anymore - the camera workse great but we had to go buy a seperate li ion battery charger to charge the battery. After charging it via the battery charger it works great once again!

is the camera still under warranty? it sounds like the battery is no longer charging on the camera. If still under warranty you could bring it back to where you bought it from. Otherwise you may need to get a replacement battery, ebay is probably your best bet. Hope this helps! Tom
phones charge the battery in the camera like a phone, but many do not.
This camera has a USB connection, which is meant to be used to transfer photos from the
camera to a computer. If your (now lost) charger was plugged into the
camera to charge it, and it plugged into the USB connector, then you can
charge the camera with any lead that will fit the USB connector, as
this will have a standard voltage. You can even charge it from the
computer, without buying a separate charger.
However, if your
charger charged the batteries outside the phone, by removing them from
the phone and placing them in the charger, then it is very unlikely that
they will charge in the phone, whatever you connect to it. I have a
camera just like this, that requires an external charger.
i think its is a problem that most of the jazz elite are having.i had mine for only two days then it went dead.i brought to repairs and they told me to throw it away.i put it back in the box and put it away. about 4 weeks after i decide to take it up and plug it in. to my surprise it starts to work and it works perfectly well. just give a little time.i know how u feel
