Battery Not Charged ¶ 

If you do not see a green light flash (next to the right side of the screen) when you turn on the camera, there may be an issue with the battery. Make sure the battery is charged, working and properly installed. To ensure the battery is charged place the battery in its charger. If the green light is showing on the charger, then the battery is charged. Note: if you know that it was not already fully charged the light should not already be green and may take approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes to fully charge. If you have noticed a significant decrease in the time the battery lasts, this may signify you need to buy a new battery.
