I tried to charge the camera on my apple computer, yet when I unplugged the camera, the green "on" button remained lit up. The camera will not turn on or off and when I try to charge it on my PC, it says the device USB is unsupported. I've tried unplugging and plugging back into the computer several times but this light will not go off and the camera will not turn on.
I think i got a fix!!! tyere is a small opening next to the white toggle button,between >> arrows and below the /set .be careful and push a small object like the end of a tiny paper clip etc... this will reset the camera!!this worked!

with the pc or lap top off there is no power to the usb ports to charge so the question is did you plug it in then switched off the pc thinking that it was charging or is that usb point configured and usable
to get around that there is a power point charger that has a usb port in the back of it for charging units
Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.
Kodak offered no help with this problem and for my camera more than five years old no repair option was available. However, after thinking about this problem a solution was found. Perfectly charged old batteries and new batteries fully charged did not correct the problem.
Here is what worked for me: With fully charged battery installed, place closed camera on EasyShare-One camera dock. With the the green light flashing, simultaneously depress both the power on/off button and the shutter button. With both these buttons held down, toggle the capture view switch from an intial down position to up, and then down position.Now release both the power on/off button and the shutter button simultaneously. This whole process takes about 20 seconds. Let the camera remain on the dock until the green light stops flashing. Remove the camera from the dock, open the camera back as usual and the screen will present you with date/time setup. Enter the date and time as required, hit the 'done' icon with the camera pen and the camera will now function normally. Why this works is speculative. However, the idea behind this method is to force a 'reboot' to factory settings by maximising conflicting electronic input signals.

I called 1-800-samsung, and they sent me a new battery. After the problem insisted, they asked me to ship the camera back to them (still under warranty). The concluded that the cable was defective, and they shipped me a new one within 1 week. That was fast!!!
Mainboard component failure at a guess or the new battery is not up to scratch- try taking the battery back for a new one as it is a recent purchase.
If you can do that and still in trouble contact Fiji for a reapair estimate.
