Try turning around the battery it worked gor me
I had the same problem. Check the polarity of your battery. That's what happened to my camera. I must have taken out the battery and put it back wrong
I do not know this particular camera but it is not usual to take a battery charge from the computer. Charger plug in the the household supply. Is this one different? There is usually a more comprehensive manual in PDF on the disk- have you checked that out. Finally get on to customer support, if you feel you are getting nowhere. I would like to know more about the battery charger.
