Are you charging the battery in the camera? Was the USB/power cord connected to an AC adapter, or was it connected to a computer USB socket? Do you have a second battery to try?

Testimonial: "i charged the battery using an AC adapter, i have since removed the battery from the camera, now when i put the battery back on the green light comes on but the lens does not open , i think the battery may be ok"

    If you have another battery available, try using that replacement battery. You are getting some indication of power now, so you could also try charging the first battery a second time, in case the camera somehow did not have enough power to run the charging function correctly the first time. Lastly, with the battery in the camera and the USB cable connected to an AC adapter and electrical socket, try starting the camera while it is getting power from the adapter. If none of these work, there may be an electrical problem with the camera or a physical problem with the lens.

The camera discharges the battery overnight


It is possible that the battery is at the end of its life. You can tell that your battery is in poor condition by the amount of pictures/movies that you can take with one charge is going down considerably.

most companies recommend 24 hours charge time unless otherwise state in the manuals for the camera or rechargeable batteries. while with some cameras or rechargeable batteries you may be able to use right out of the box! also if are using third party rechargeable batteries then you should follow the instructions of the battery maker.

The following table summarizes how AA batteries perform in different types of use. Type of Use Alkaline NiCd Ni-MH Oxyride Photo Lithium Most economical when taking more than 30 pictures per month Poor Good Good Poor Fair Most economical when taking less than 30 pictures per month Fair Fair Fair Fair Good Heavy use of flash, frequent pictures Poor Good Good Fair Good Heavy use of video Poor Good Good Fair Good Heavy use of Live View Poor Good Good Fair Good Overall battery life Poor Fair Fair Fair Good Low temperature/winter use Poor Good Fair Poor Good Infrequent use (without dock) Fair Fair Fair Fair Good Infrequent use (with dock) Fair Good Good Fair Good Recharge batteries No Yes Yes No No Solution three: Make sure that your batteries are completely charged Follow the steps below for your battery type: Ni-MH rechargeable batteries Ni-MH batteries lose charge, or self-discharge, at a rate of one to two percent per day, whether they are installed in the camera or not. This means that if a battery is fully charged, after several weeks, the battery will be low or dead even if it was not installed in the camera or if it was installed in the camera but no pictures were taken. Ni-MH batteries are best for those who use the camera frequently and recharge often. The amount of charge that Ni-MH batteries can hold gradually decreases because of usage, aging, and lack of maintenance. To maintain your batteries at maximum capacity, "condition" them when they are new or have not been used for over a month. Follow these steps to maintain (condition) your batteries:
  1. Completely discharge the batteries by using the camera normally until it will not operate.
  2. Recharge the batteries.
  3. Do this three or four times.
NiCd rechargeable batteries Nickel-cadmium (NiCd) batteries lose charge or self-discharge at a rate of one percent per day. Store NiCd batteries in a cold place such as the refrigerator or freezer to minimize the loss. To store in a cold place, place the batteries in a tightly sealed container to keep the moisture out. Before using them, warm the batteries to room temperature. The amount of charge that Ni-Cd batteries can hold gradually decreases because of usage, aging, and lack of maintenance. To maintain your batteries at maximum capacity, "condition" them when they are new or have not been used for over a month. Follow these steps to maintain (condition) your batteries:
  1. Completely discharge the batteries by using the camera normally until it will not operate.
  2. Recharge the batteries.
  3. Do this three or four times.
Alkaline, Photo Lithium, and Oxyride non-rechargeable batteries Make sure that the batteries are new and have not been used for anything else. . Solution seven: Try a new set of batteries If you have tried all the solutions described above but your batteries still do not last very long, try a new set of batteries. If the old batteries are damaged, a fresh set of batteries will solve the problem. Batteries can be damaged in the following ways:
  • NiCd and Ni-MH batteries can be damaged by over-charging. After a battery has been recharged, do not try to add additional charge to the battery by sending it through another recharge cycle before using it.
  • Batteries can be damaged by dropping or sudden impacts. Even if there is no apparent external damage, the rechargeable battery could later develop an internal short or leak while in the camera and cause damage.
  • If batteries have become wet, they may short out and will not work properly.

My battery is fully charged but when i turn the camera on it shuts right back off


SOunds like your battery is bad. try discharing it :
  1. Place the battery in your camera until it itself turns off. In this situation, the battery is fully discharged.
  2. Take out your battery and slide it into your battery charger.
  3. Connect your charger with power to fully charge the battery. It is normal for a new battery that battery indicator shows 100% capacity in 10 to 15 minutes. Please keep charging until there is no time left for charging.
  4. Fully charged and fully discharged or "cycled" as much as five times to condition them into performing at full capacity.
Try it and see if it works? If the batteries are not rechargeable then the problem is in the cameras power supply and you need to take it in or replace it.

Will not turn on


Old batteries will not charge fully. Batteries left to completely discharge will most likely be useless.

Wont turn on


Well to be3 a 100% about the battery I would replace it with one that you know or is guaranteed to work. Camera batteries can look OK from outside and be completely collapsed inside.

No Charge lights can indicate NO battery and if there is one inside then it is dead and registers as a no battery ( no charge light)

The red light blinks in very low state, but totally discharged it will not blink and wont blink again until loeft on chareger for about 3-4 hrs to overcome the low state.

Printer will not charge camera batteries. camera screen said to go on line and look for m627-435


Did you go online and look up this troubleshooting tip from HP?  Did you make sure the batteries are rechargeable and in the correct orientation ( + and - )? Here is the results from looking up the error code M627-435 at the HP website:
Solution
  1. Ensure that the batteries are rechargeable. If the batteries are not rechargeable, replace them with rechargeable batteries.
  2. If the batteries are rechargeable, take them out and check for obvious physical damage. If the batteries are damaged, replace the batteries with rechargeable batteries in good physical condition.
  3. If the batteries are in good condition, charge the batteries using the external charger that shipped with the camera before using them in the camera for the first time.
  4. If you have tried each of the steps above and the status message still displays when you try to charge the batteries, replace the batteries.
Cause The Batteries cannot be charged status message is usually caused by one of the following:
  • When first connected to an optional HP AC power adapter or placed on an optional dock, the camera performs a test to determine if the batteries are rechargeable. If the test determines that the batteries are non-rechargeable, an status message displays in the LCD.
  • If the battery charge falls below 1.1 volts, the camera cannot detect that the batteries are rechargeable. The camera does not charge batteries below a 1.1-volt threshold to prevent charging non-rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries discharged below 1.1 volts can be charged in an external charger.
    Apparently, your batteries are either seriously discharged where you need to use an external AC charger to recharge the batteries or their damagaed and need replacing. Hope this helps.
