Jazz DV169 issue

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 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!

The camera will charge and will record if it is plugged in. As soon as it's unplugged from the power source, the camera no longer works. Any suggestions? Thanks !

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!

How can i charge my Jazz Hdv188 if i lost the charger?

You can use any generic micro-usb to usb cable and charge through your computer. I lost my stock charger and had a micro-usb from another camera

Can't find my charge adapter for my Jazz HD 188. Will it charge by plugging into the USB port of my PC?

Some 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.
