There are (2) common (non-terminal) issues that cause this problem.
1) the contacts inside the camera have become oxidized...., using the eraser on the end of a pencil..., rub (clean) the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment.
2) Modern Li-Ion batteries often last only (3) years...,(if you have good ones)...., so what happens is that as the batteries reach the end of their life span they quite often will work one day and not the next (but show that they are fully charged). Thus if you only have the (1) battery, you will not know if it is the battery, the charger or the camera. Go to your local camera store (with your camera & battery) and see if they are willing to put a new battery in your camera..., if it powers up it's your battery or charger. ask if they will then try to charge your old battery on their charger for 1/2 an hour..., this is enough of a charge to find out if your camera will turn on using the old battery.
Now you must ask yourself, if I need to purchase a new battery of charger..., is it worth it.
When the battery is empty, you can't switch on the camera. Why does it not charge?
Could be the switch behind the lens cover does not work correct or not at all. Could be the power cord is not ok. Or the socket where the cord goes into the camera.
Can you try to charge the camera on an external charger and when it is charged, try switching on again.
There is, on most generators, a fuse of approximately 8Amps in series with the charge system for the battery. If the generator produces AC and there is no charge to the internal battery, I would suspect the altenator winding, diode pack or regulator.
Camcorder has charging circuit but it could go defective. The repair would be costly so in this situation, you can purchase stand-along battery charger for around $20 and charge the batteries independently. Make sure all the contacts are cleaned and camcorder is working with direct ac adapter. Good luck -James. for furnter assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
mmmm.... thats a weird problem :)
Yes definatly try those other rechargable batteries that you where thinking of buying, the batteries could be duds??
other than that, if it is under warrnty send it back to pentax with the batteries and tell them the problem.
it sounds like a problem with the charging port (where you actually plug the charger into your phone). unfortunately, you may have to replace the phone, as switching batteries or chargers wont solve the problem.
Sounds like the battery has failed. if you can, then if you can try and borrow a working battery from someone else with the same camera, and try your battery on their camera just to confirm this is the problem.
If you can't, then just try a new battery - please post again if you are having trouble finding one.
Other possibility is that there is a fault with the charger - again if you can borrow one, you can soon see of this is the problem. Most camera repair shops will have a selection of chargers they can use, so you should be able to check this quite easily.
Hope this helps :)
