I have a coolpix S2550 and i lost the charger for it so the battery was/is completely drained, i have recently found the charger, but now when i turn the camera on it comes up with a white screen and says ''battery exhausted'' does this mean it needs at least 2 days charge or do i need a new battery?

Rechargeable batteries don't like being left in a discharged state for very long and are soon damaged.

If the battery is healthy but discharged it might be demanding more current than the charger and internal circuitry can provide causing the charging process to shut down.

The battery might be so discharged it is effectively open circuit and practically useless though sometimes it is possible to force them to take a charge by applying a much higher voltage (I use a car battery) to the terminals for maybe 2 or 3 seconds. It is a kill or cure thing...

SOURCE: when the battery is in the charger it flashes red

I called casio and they told me that when you have a red flashing light on the charger it means the lithium battery is no longer any good. They offered to send me one free of charge. It's been several weeks and I have yet to receive it.

Nikon s2550 battery will not recharge

f you have a multimeter, please check the voltage of the battery. Should be 3,7 Volt, but when not fitted in the camera it could be like 4 Volt. If it is complete empty (0V) my guess is the battery has died.
Second possibility could be; your charger can't charge because it is broke. There are cheap universal chargers on the net. You only need to put the connectors correct o the battery (some will do that automatic) and the charges starts charging. You don't have to look what voltage or what capacity the battery is. The charges does everything.

I have a Nikon coolpix S2550. 12.0 Megapixels/wise4Xzoom. I cannot turn it on + I cannot seem to get it to charge??? thanks for your help

Hi. Remove the battery and clean the contacts with the eraser end of a pencil. Then charge the battery. After two hours test the battery with a tester. If you don???t have one take the battery and charger to a radio shack store where they will test them for free.

Just bought a usb cord charger for my nikon coolpix s203 and its been dead fir a couple of days and I wont turn on

You left your camera on for a couple of days? I'd think your batteries are completely drained. The S203 doesn't charge batteries via the USB port. Try charging the batteries overnight using the supplied MH-63 charger.

If that doesn't do it, please reply to this post and we'll go on from there.

My nikon coolpix s220 wont charge... do i have to have the original charger???

The S220 uses the EN-EL10 battery. The camera does NOT incorporate any charging circuitry, so connecting it to a computer actually drains the battery. In order to charge the battery, you need the MH-63 battery charger or a third-party equivalent.

If you need a charger, you can order one from your local Nikon dealer or from
