Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.
Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.
If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or
Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.
I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.
The Kidizoom is a camera, not a battery charger. If you wan to use rechargeable batteries, you'll have to charge those batteries in a separate, appropriate charger.
If by "dead" you mean a broken, defective, or past end of life battery, then there is nothing you can do to charge it again. If you simply mean a completely drained battery, put it into an appropriate charger and charge it following the instructions for that charger.
Use the supplied battery charger. Remove the battery from the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a power outlet.
Connect the camera via a USB cord to a powered USB outlet. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge the battery. You might want to consider a cell phone charger that plugs into a power outlet.
The USB socket is toward the bottom on the left end of the camera (as you view it from the rear). Take a look at the illustrations on page 5 of the manual.
You can charge the battery either outside the camera using the supplied charger or inside the camera by connecting the camera via USB to a powered port. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge batteries.
Remove the battery from the camera and insert it into the supplied charger. Plug one end of the cord into the charger and the other end into a powe outlet. The indicator on the charger will glow red while charging, then blink when the battery is charged.
There are two ways to charge the battery. One is to use the supplied battery charger. Remove the battery from the camera, put the battery into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet. The other is to use the supplied USB cable. Plug one end of the cable into the camera and the other end into an USB port on a computer or other power source.
If any of the parts were missing when you opened the package, contact the retailer or the manufacturer directly at http://vivitar.com
You put the battery into the camera. Put the USB end from your computer cord into the end of the AC adapter hook it up to your camera. Ta-da! Everything should be working smoothly in the battery/charger department. :)
