Can't find my charge adapter for my Jazz HD 188. Will it charge by plugging into the USB port of my PC?


Some phones charge the battery in the camera like a phone, but many do not. This camera has a USB connection, which is meant to be used to transfer photos from the camera to a computer. If your (now lost) charger was plugged into the camera to charge it, and it plugged into the USB connector, then you can charge the camera with any lead that will fit the USB connector, as this will have a standard voltage. You can even charge it from the computer, without buying a separate charger.

However, if your charger charged the batteries outside the phone, by removing them from the phone and placing them in the charger, then it is very unlikely that they will charge in the phone, whatever you connect to it. I have a camera just like this, that requires an external charger.

My camera needs to be charged and i have lost the battery charger. so i put my camera on the usb cord and into the computer and tried to turn it on but it wont work.


You don't say what model camera it is, so I am going to have to do some guessing. If your battery charger normally charges the battery in the camera, then it probably will charge when connected to the computer by the USB lead. However, some cameras require the battery to be taken out and charged in an external charger. If that is the case with yours, then it probably won't charge by connecting to the computer.

It is normal for a camera connected to a computer via the USB lead to go into a kind of passive mode, just acting as an external disk drive so that files can be transferred, so not being able to turn the camera on while it is so connected might be normal. However, if you mean that you left it connected for awhile to charge up, but it wouldn't turn on after you disconnected it, then it is obvious that it cannot be charged up that way.

My samsung SGH-J700 wont turn on or charge


Time to get the ribbon cable changed. You can do this yourself with some patience after buying the cable over ebay or get it replaced at a service centre for a very cheap price.

I cant get my mda to turn on i hold down the power button for a while but it wont turn on i charged it for 3 days and it still wont work what should i do?


Mda Vario's don't charge when turned off, heres what you do.
cut wire off a usb lead the small end strip the red and black wires, put the red wire onto the posative connection where the battery is it tells you what side is posative and negative on the battery, use black with negative and red with posative making sure that no wires touch the other metal strips in the phone, replace battery plug usb into computer and start up the mda and wait for it to boot. once turned on leave to charge as it will charge through the wires connected to the battery, after 10 to 15 minutes plug in the actuall charger and try to remove usb wires without taking battery out. if that is not possable it is ok as the battery should have enough power to start up once it starts leave to charge and always keep some charge in the phone.

L7 unable to charge


All cellphone run on Lithium Ion batteries. These batteries, by nature(physics) have a max charged voltage of 3.4 to 4VDC. So, of your charger, or USB cable, has less than about 5 VDC, then either charger is defective, USB cable(if charging from PC USB port) is not a FULL USB(has data leads only wire, 5V power wire not carried through, PC does not supply 5V power to USB because it is turned off by a PC setting option, or a non-powering USB Hub or other device is in series with PC and Phone.

Are you sure you have identified the GND wire correctly? Measurements must all be made with one lead of your VoltMeter referenced to GND. Another consideration, some Windows Mobile phones will not charge off the USB cable unless the latest version of WM ActiveSync or Mobile Device software is loaded and running on the PC. These WM phones also will not charge from just any AC USB generic charger. Charger has to be for that particular phone, or phone manufacture, to be 'recognized' before provideing charge.
