Battery only works when plugged in

I've tried buying a new battery but this didn't work. I have a feeling that I charged the camera with the wrong charger. Have I killed it?

I guess so...many cases just like your the problem is always the power supply there some regulator that being busted......there a few case the only being damage is the small fuse.i hope that the only part damage to your camera..

Camera won't charge

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

My htc incredible s won't charge, I've tried

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.

Just changed the battery yet red light flashes constantly

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.

Packard bell netbook nav50 battery stopped charging properly. bought a new charger and battery and it still wont charge it up.

LOL, I didn't know Packard Bell was still making computers. I would think they sold you a bad battery. I've purchased new batteries before that would not charge.

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.

Hi, Sounds like the battery is quite old which means its probably stopped being able to hold a charge which would cause the problems you've described. The solution would be to buy a new battery.

I have a Olympus FE 4000. I purchased it this past year and it worked fine for a while but all of a sudden my camera shut down. I though the battery simply needed charging so i charged it. when i put it...

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.

Battery Charging light doesn't flash and battery doesn't charge

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.
