Camera will not charge the battery

My digital camera has an internal charger for it lit ion battery pack. When I plug it in the charge button would turn red, according to the manual it was time for a new battery, I purchased a new battery and the same thing happened. The charge indicator light turns red and the battery won't charge. Is the charger shot or is there any hope. Thanks.

This isn't the best soulution but it worked for me. I cleaned off the contacts on the battery and when I placed it back in the camera I put a small piece of a thick rubber band under the door and closed it. This forced the battery farther onto the camera terminals and I was able to get a full charge on the battery.

I had three of these cameras inherited from a project. All of them exhibited this problem to some degree, so I suspect it's a design issue. Note, though, that there are after-market chargers available for the battery. The same battery is used in several other cameras. Search online using the battery number to find the chargers. They are less than $30.00.

Well. Ive got the same problem only ive gone thru 3 batteries trying to figure out what the problem is. When i plug it in to charge the light turns red , then within 5 sec's turns green. It stays green but never charges the battery. After 24 hours, its still a dead battery. Im just assuming since its 5 years old that the internal charger is shot. Looking for a new camera at this time.

Bought a Nikon Coolpix S3000 (orange) for my daughter after Christmas. It just stopped working one day; wouldn't charge, no lights or come on. The battery it came with is a Nikon lithium ION Battery...

Read page 16 of the manual. Do not use any other charger with this camera. Are you sure you have the battery inserted correctly? When trying to charge, does the green light blink? If so, when it stops blinking and turns off, the battery should be fully charged. Do not attempt to turn the camera on while the charger is trying to charge the battery.

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.

Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

I have sony cybershot dsc 10 digital camera but it dsn't power on batery charge is full

Hi,

Please make sure that the Battery in the Camera is fully charged.
Please check if the issue is with the battery charger. Make sure that the Charge Lamp in the Battery Charger is lit when connected to the Wall outlet.
You can try recharging the battery pack for almost 6 hours as initial charging.
If you've another battery pack, try using the same to check if the issue is with the Camera or with the battery.
You can also try turning on the Camera by connecting the optional ACL-S5K AC Adapter. This Adapter can be used for turning on the Camera, it cannot be used to charge the battery pack. For charging the battery in the Camera, the supplied battery charged needs to be used.
If the Camera is not turning on using both the AC Adapter and new battery, then the Camera may require service.

I have the powershot SD3500IS abd it says i need to change the battery pack what is that and how can i fix it also if i dont have a charer can i charge it with the usb ?

"Change batter pack" means your battery is dead. The camera should have come with a charger in the bok that can plug into the outlet in your wall. It uses a lithium ion battery, so you can't use a regular AA batter charger, for instance. You cannot charge the battery via the usb into your computer.

    Can u charge camera with usb cable from computer

    The Kodak camera that I own states in the manual that you can charge the batteries only with the printer/dock or separate battery charger. I've left mine plugged into USB for hours at a time and never noticed a charge going into the battery. I use both AA lithium-ion batteries and the pack that came with the camera. The Li-on AAs work as well as the pack and for a cheap price, I purchased 4 AA and the charger (about $15).
