Power cord and battery's support NO power to Video Camera
The camera was working fine as I was importing images onto my computer. Then the battery died. First, I tried to use my other battery but it did not work ... so I assumed that the second battery was also dead. Then I connected the power cord but accidentally (did not have my glasses) plugged the DC cable into the microphone plug. After I noticed my mistake, I connected the power cord correctly and now the camera does not turn on or charge the battery. When a battery is not attached to the camera (this video model charges battery when it is connected to the camera only) the power light blinks once and then stops. Nothing is being charged. Did I fry something internal in the camera? Or perhaps the charging adapter?

Re: Power cord and battery's support NO power to Video...
This incident happens often and damages the camcorder's power board. Replacing power board and some adjustment should resolved the problem. Your cost may run from $175-$225 in US for this model. Whenever you are transfering and connecting to pc, it is recommended to connect AC adapter power for this. Do not rely on a charged battery. Good luck.

A few problems could be present. You may be low on battery. Make sure your camera battery is charged. Second, make sure you are using the correct cord to download. Third, make sure the cord is plugged into the computer. Restart your computer. Then, when your camera is turned off, plug the cord into the camera. Turn the camera ON. This should work. If not, there may be a problem with the cord or with the camera, or your software.
As a last resort.... If your camera works fine otherwise, you can purchase a memory card reader and retrieve your images that way...or take them into the drugstore photo department and have them printed or put on a disk for you.
Required: Samsung D53 Camera Memory Card (Clean with no pictures on it!) Fresh batteries
Optional: Computer Memory card reader on your computer
Problem: You have several (or more) photos that were taken with no memory card inserted into the camera, and they have been stored on the camera's internal memory. You have no USB cord to get the pictures off your camera.
Solution: I don't know if this is in the manual (as this is a used camera I purchased with no manual or USB cord). In my frustration, I accidentally found out how to get my photos off the internal memory and onto my computer's hard drive.
Here are the steps I followed:
1. Ensure fresh batteries are inserted into your camera. You might lose data or get corrupted pictures if the camera dies while you're transferring pictures. Fresh batteries are important.
2. Insert memory card into the camera (where the batteries go) and close the lid.
3. Power camera on.
4. Press the Print/Review button (bottom button to the right of the LCD) once.
5. When you see the words "No Image!" appear, press the Menu/OK button.
6. A new menu will pop up, asking you COPY TO CARD -- use your buttons to highlight "Yes".
7. You will see your camera "Processing!" It will finish on its own, so do not interrupt the task.
(Optional) 8. Once it has finished "Processing!", remove memory card and insert into your computer's memory card reader to see and SAVE your pictures to your computer. Ensure all photos transferred properly before proceeding to Step 9.
9. With the memory card removed from the camera, power the camera back on and delete individual pictures, if you want to reserve internal memory for future emergency picture-taking situations (especially now that you know you can actually get the photos off of the camera's internal memory now!)
Your USB cable is fine, I use a generic cable with my A590 with no problems. Connect the USB cable to the camera then your computer, make sure that the camera is set to the view setting instead of picture taking setting and then turn your camera an. Your computer should then see the camera. This is the only combination that works with my camera.
Hi mate, I had same problem as you, took the cam into store and teh guy helped me out.
Make sure you get the recharger for the camcorder, then plug it into teh camcorder and also to the wall power when you are uploading the files. It can needs an extra power boost to get the files onto your computer.
- so plug in your camcorder to computer
- also plug in the battery recharger cord to the camcorder
One of the images did not finish writing to the card properly (usually in the last 4 or 5 images, or the last video) Try selecting all but the last 10 images and chose import selected. This should work. Then delete those from the card. This bit is important Put the card back in the camera (if it's in a usb reader) if not, disconnect the camera and put it into playback mode. View the remaining 10 images/video. Try re importing and it should work fine! I've had this problem since ilife '09 and this method always fixes it. It seems to happen when the cards get full. Try not to completely fill a memory card and you should not get the problem.
I have had the same problem with getting a busy signal after plugging in the USB cord. Usually turning it on and off a few times, giving it a few seconds in between, works for me. Also, have you tried just going into My Computer and clicking on the drive for the USB you've got you're camera plugged into and transferring the photos onto your pc from there? They only go onto your pc, not into a program but you can get them into one from there.
