    Hi all,

    Wondering any advice available.

    I have just purchased the Camileo S20 and note that the camcorder cannot charged via the supplied USB cable.

    All I get was a constant blue light (indicating it is fully charged), although it is not.

    If I plug through the AC power, charging starts and a blinking light is shown.

    This is strange as I have gone through the manual and it indicates that charging can be done via USB or AC charger.

    I have tried plugging the USB cable using a PC, Mac and even through an USB AC adaptor, but all I get was a constant blue light.

    What is wrong?

    Hi

    Iíve got a Camileo H30 and if I connect the camcorder to the notebook using the USB cable the play button blinks green.
    But if I connect the AC adaptor to the camcorder, then the camcorder/photo button blinks blue/red.
    This means that the camcorderís battery charges properly.

    I have read the manual, the lights should be blinking during charging. What I got was a non blinking blue light.
    This is supposed to indicate that the battery is fully charged.
    However, I know that this is not the case as the battery is only 2/3 full. If I plug it in using the AC, the lights starts to blink (orange/blue) indicating that it is charging.
    I have tried changing to a generic USB cable, thinking that the supplied cable may not be compatible but to no avail.
    This is frustrating as I'm not sure whether it's a case of flaw in the cable or the camcorder.

    Why should he use this strange part for battery charging?
    As mkoh said above, the battery can be charged using the supplied AC adaptor which is working fine. So I would say; use the AC adaptor.
