The voltage in the battery is too low to “excite” the charger. The charger needs to read some sort of voltage to know it is connected to a battery and connected the right way otherwise it will not begin charging. If you have another battery and jump leads you can connect it to the flat battery to excite the charger. Once the charger commences charging you can remove the jump battery and leave the flat battery to be charged.
Plugged? Did it have any charge? Almost sounds like reversed connection. double check connection. You may have a short after the battery so battery is constantly drained and will never charge.
disconnect the battery connections and charge to check. Are you sure you have charging voltage at the charger output connection.?
when the computer is turned off, the AC adapter charges a completely discharged battery to 80 percent in about 1 hour and to 100 percent in approximately 2 hours. Charge time is longer with the computer turned on. You can leave the battery in the computer for as long as you like. The battery's internal circuitry prevents the battery from overcharging.
So About 2 to 3 hrs
When you connect the computer to an electrical outlet or install a battery while the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the computer checks the battery charge and temperature. If necessary, the AC adapter then charges the battery and maintains the battery charge.
If the battery is hot from being used in your computer or being in a hot environment, the battery may not charge when you connect the computer to an electrical outlet.
The manual says: Confirm all connections. Off is selected for Charge by computer in the setup menu. When charging by connecting the camera to a computer, battery charging stops when the camera is turned off. When charging by connecting the camera to a computer, battery charging stops if the computer is suspended (sleeping), and the camera may turn off. Depending upon computer specifications, settings, and status, it may be impossible to charge the battery inserted into the camera via computer connection. So be sure you are charging the correct way. Best way to do is to remove the battery and put it on the charger for a couple of hours. If you have the battery out, you can check all connections of battery and in the camera. In trouble shooting, more than a full page is dedicated only to the battery and the method of charging. The manual is still online, but should also on the CD you got with the camera.
connect the charger to the socket, then connect the charger to your laptop. if it does not charge remove it for 5mins, connect the charger back. it will work now. sometimes when the battery is fully charged and you remove the charger and connect it back it may not charge until the battery is low;lets say 99%.
Your charger is probibly the problem i had a friend of mine that had the same problem but different camera i told him to get a new charger he did and it worked so yoyu do the same goodluck:) please rate this solution...
Check your battery and check the ground wire from battery. Make sure all your wires are clean and good connections. A bad battery will not charge and a dead battery will not charge a alternator maintains a battery not charge a battery, so charge your battery completely before checking that the alternator is working. Check all the wires going to the starter for good tight and clean connections . Hope this helps...
1. The charger may be damaged
To check if the charger is damaged, use another functioning charger.
The charger cable has a tiny wire that easily breaks when used without proper care.
If the phone still does not charge with a functioning charger, try next step.
2. The battery may be damaged
Change the battery and try charging again.
If the phone still does not charge with a functioning battery, try next step.
3. The battery terminals may not connect properly with the battery connectors
Check the battery connector to see if the battery and the connector connects well.
The phone will indicate charging only when there?s enough power supply from the battery. click here
Solution Procedure: If problem is confirmed, adjust the battery connector using tweezers to reach the battery terminal and establish connection. Or try next step.
4. The charging pin may be damaged or does not connect well with the board's interface
Check the charging pins to see if they are well connected to the mother board. Sometimes the charging pins wear out or loosens from its connection with the mother board. click here
Solution Procedure: Check if the pin is bent. Straighten the pin using tweezers.
Make sure the board interface is also clean otherwise, you will need to clean it by rubbing its surface using an eraser or brushing it with a board solution.
Or replace with a new charging pin. Make sure the charging pin touches with the board interface to establish connection.
5. The CCONT IC for DCT3 or UEM for DCT4 or the "K" resister for non-Nokia models may be damaged
If the phone still does not charge after adjustments are made, the problem is CCONT IC for DCT3 or UEM for DCT4 or ?K? resister for non-Nokia models. click here
