sometimes the charger can become loose in either the camera or the plug so try buying a new plug and if it still doesn't work then it is a problem with the camera and you will have to ask the people you bought it from
It sounds like the charging port on your phone is broken. This could have happened a number of ways. Either by dropping your phone, putting the charger in wrong, or taking it out wrong. If you call HTC(866-449-8358) and it is still under warranty they will probably fix it for free as long as it doesn't have any water damage(http://www.ehow.com/how_4479971_check-cell-phone-water-damage.html). Otherwise you could also get a new phone.
For starters, if the 'red light' flashes, either your area WHERE you charged it has a temperature that is either too hot, or too cold, so you should charge it in another area. Another tip, is maybe you're charging it for too long, or NOT long enough, so you should try it out. If those two DIDN'T do fix your problem, than it could be your battery pack. You should see if something is wrong with it, or buy a new one. But it may ALSO be your camera, like if you dropped it, or something.
If unused for any length of time, rechargeable batteries lose their ability to retain a charge. Try it with a brand new, fully-charged battery. FWIW, I recharge all my camera and flashgun batteries monthly.
Yes, it's possible. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Lithium batteries in particular can fail early if they are allowed to become totally discharged.
The best way to proceed is to buy a new battery, then try to charge it. If it charges and the camera works, problem solved.
If it doesn't charge, then you will need a new charger. The battery will not be wasted though, as it is always handy to have a spare.
If having bought both new battery and new charger you camera still won't work, then you will have to look into your warranty or return it to the shop- however that works in your country.
It is possible to check the voltage of the battery with a meter (you can buy a general purpose multi-meter cheaply) but this takes a modicum of skill and interpretation. Even a run down battery may show some voltage on a meter, as it doesn't draw much current.
I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.
