Charging battery

I just bought a new Toshiba PDR-M5 Digital Camera and according to the manual, when you charge the battery (which is done by plugging in the AC adaptor with the battery in the camera) the LED next to the viewfinder is supposed to be red and it's not. The battery seems to be charging (this is the first use and an out of the box camera etc) According to the indicator showing battery life, it shows half full. I've tried unplugging the camera and plugging it back in but no LED status. I've turned the knob to power on the camera and it goes on but still no LED indication for it charging. I just wondered if anyone else who has the camera can help me out and let me know. Thanks! -- Patty

Hi Pat, When charging the battery the light should definitely be red. When it turns green it's charged. I would exchange your camera for another PDR-M5 if you can. I actually had to do the same thing - noticed a big difference with the second one - including fit and finish....think that maybe Toshiba has a quality control issue. I just returned mine (second one) yesterday - was a hard decision - love the features - 3X zoom - video - speed, etc.....but got fed up with the picture quality indoors - too many out of focus - couldn't count on it. Also all pictures - in/out - tended to be dark - drab looking - always had to lighten using the software before printing. This is a $1250 camera in Canada after tax w/extra 16 meg smartmedia which you need at the minimum so there are no excuses. Hope you have better luck with yours!

LED light by viewfinder solid yellow(orange) and Camera won't turn on.

Is the color of the LED yellow, or more towards orange? This is what the manual has to say: ? Signal processing in progress after photography ? Charging of flash in progress (Photography is not possible.) If the first option of the 2 is what has it stuck, I would suspect a problem with the card, which you could test using another known good card, or it could be a problem with the camera's processor, which is already a serious repair. If the second one is causing this(charging flash), It's also one for the lab, but not as bad as the other one. Good luck, keep in touch(let us know how it turned out) ;]

Software for Toshiba digicam??

If nothing else works, contact one of the sellers of a used M5 on eBay, and ask for a copy of the CD. Since Toshiba isn't interested in selling the software anyway, it's hard to see how it would hurt anybody.
