    My camera is just fine. I was just using it earlier today and then I went to charge it and it just flashes orange and then goes blank. The light is supposed to be red whenever the battery is about dead, which mine is....I have yet to figure out this problem. I'm not sure if it's the usb cable or the charger.

    I don't beleive it's the battery as I've bought 2 extra now for a total of three batteries and all have the same problem- light blinks orange when it should be charging and batteries don't charge!

    Yep, same problem. Haven't used the camera in several months but otherwise is new. Orange light flashing, no life in the camera :-(

    I too have the same problem: I don't recall dropping the camera or going swimming with it, but the lead just flashes orange.

Can you charge a samsung l830 digimax camera with a usb cable or do you have to have a charger?

If the USB port puts out enough current then yes, you may charge the L830 with a USB cable. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current, especially if you go through a hub.

When i plug my charger into the camera, it stays red for 1 minute, and then continuesly flashes orange, and doesnt charge, anyway i can fix this?

The problem appears to be in the rechargeable battery itself, I would replace the battery but not until the old one is checked first at the camera store.

What is the orange charging light doing? If it is just flashing on, or only staying on or a minuet, that means you need a new battery. The orange light foes on when the battery has been charged to its maximum capacity. After each charge, the capacity is decreased. So if the orange light is on for only a short time, get a new battery.
