Won't charge or power up - new battery?

My camera won't charge or power up. I bought a new charging/sync USB cable for it, but the charge light is not lighting up. The camera doesn't power up even when plugged in. I hit the reset button, and the LED next to it blinks red once. I'm not quite sure what that means.
Do I need a new battery, or does it seem like something worse and not worth the battery purchase?

Thanks
Dan

Hello, reset in this case is not a solution. Maybe your lens is stuck. For further info please contact me at LIVE session. Best regards, Arpi

SOURCE: camera not sataying charged

Hey stacytwo,
I would try cleaning the battery contacts first with a cotton swab, and if this doesn't work I would try initializing the camera back to its factory default settings as described on page 53 of your camera manual. If these options don't work I would try purchasing a new battery. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

SOURCE: Seems like batteries don't work, but . . .

I think the problem was either dirty battery contacts or a broken connection somewhere with the battery terminals. I'd cleaned the contacts a number of times with a pencil eraser before, but nothing worked. This time, I just did it again and paid careful attention that both contacts on the battery door were protruding properly--could be that one of the contacts got pushed back such that it wasn't making proper battery contact. All I know is that it's working now, perfectly, after sitting for a couple of years on the shelf. I really like this camera.

Nikon s6300 won't turn on

Coolpix Cameras are tricky to use with chargers. I will assume your USB Charger EH-69P is 100 - 240V 50/60 Hz so it CAN work in many places around the world with an adapter. Do not go over 240V or you could damage it.

These cameras like to have the power supply connected when it is on to charge - meaning if you have it connected and you plug the charger in the wall it will NOT charge. So if you plug the charger in the wall first and then plug the cable in the camera it will work. The camera is actually ON when it charges and I never REMOVE the memory card when it is ON.

When you have a dead battery. Plug the camera in and make sure the ON LED lights and the Charge LED flashes. Then don't mess with it. Let it charge completely (Charge LED stops flashing and is OFF) and then unplug it. It will turn off. Then later you can turn it on.

Switronix Tl-50 won't turn on

I too have had a problem with mine no longer charging. I talked to the manufacture. Since the cord light is on however my torchlights charging light is not on they said could be the batt or could be a bad wire in the charger. I've been debating whether to send it in for fix or buy a new batt to try first. For yours I would send in for repair. Unfortunately these lights only come with a 1 yr manufacturing warranty so if you've had it over a yr you will end up paying 60-130 was the price range I was quoted depending on the problem.

My kodak easyshare MD41 has had charging issues since I bought it.. The USB cable that came with the camera won't fit right into the camera's port. I really had to push to get it in. Well, now it...

You will just need to buy a new cable.

Something like this:

Battery won,t charge

the price of KLIC7001 $29.00 try to purchase the battery at wallmart target or at kodak.com/go/shop.,
how do you charged your camera USB cable or AC adaptor? if USB cable make sure that the Cable is working fined and the USB port of a computer is not defective., If the AC adaptor., try to clean the 3 metal contacts of your KLIC7001 using clean dry cloth, then charge it again. if its failed., try to test first the camera itself using different KLIC7001 if its not charging it means the problem is on the camera not the battery

Can i charge the camera other than through the usb cable ??

Hi!

USB charging is not possible. You need to have the battery charger to be able to fully charge the battery. This should come along with the camera kit.

USB charging is possible if you will buy this: http://fujifilm.co.uk/consumer/digital/digital-accessories/usb-chargers-travel-adaptors-153171/world-adaptor-plus-usb-charger

"For charging by USB, simply change the head and plug in your iPod, mobile phone, PDA or any other 5V USB powered device to keep it fully charged wherever you are."
