Notes About Charging with a Computer

• When connected to a computer, the camera automatically turns on and starts charging. If the 

camera is turned off, charging stops.

• About 2 hours and 40 minutes are required to charge a fully exhausted battery. Charging time 

increases when images are transferred while the battery is charging.

• The camera turns off automatically if there is no communication with the computer for 30 minutes 

after the battery has finished charging.

When the Charge Lamp Quickly Flashes Green

Charging cannot be performed, possibly due to one of the reasons described below.
• The ambient temperature is not suited to charging. Charge the battery indoors with an ambient 

temperature of 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F).

• The USB cable is not connected correctly, or the battery is faulty. Make sure the USB cable is 

connected correctly and replace the battery if necessary.

• The computer is in sleep mode and is not supplying power. Wake up the computer.
• The battery cannot be charged because the computer cannot supply power to the camera due to 

the computer’s settings or its specifications.
