Question about Samsung L200 Digital Camera
Ok. I have the samsung l200 but the cameras are very similar. I had
the issue as well. When I plug it in it flashes red once, green once,
then orange consistently. It would not charge the battery.
The fix was really quite unexpected. I did two things not sure which fixed it.
1. slide the cable into the camera slowly until the light turned red once, then pulled it gently in and out a few times.
2. as i plugged it in, I tried to angle the plug side to side sliding it to the left and right on a diagonal. I was hoping the pins would be touched differently when I did this which might reset something.
not sure which of these two things corrected the problem, but the camera is now charging.

I called 1-800-samsung, and they sent me a new battery. After the problem insisted, they asked me to ship the camera back to them (still under warranty). The concluded that the cable was defective, and they shipped me a new one within 1 week. That is fast!!!

I had the same problem - I left it on charge for a whole day and the battery was still dead but I found that if you take the lead out the actual plug and plug the camera into your usb port on your computer (as though you were uploading photos) and keep the camera turned off it will charge!!!

Same thing with mine, samsung sent a new cord, nothing, i sent the camera to them and they repaired it. the engineers report said he realigned the battery contacts. samsung were very helpful and the service was really fast.
