Vtech Kidizoom digital camera is my daughter’s one of the top favorite toys. She is little young for this digital camera as it is recommended for 3-9 years, but she just loves playing with it. It not only takes good pictures but it lets you to add pre-installed graphics to the photos. It is really a cool feature. Candice loves seeing her photos edited with picture frames.
About last month, the battery went dead finally. I tried to find a way to charge the batteries, but I couldn’t figure out how. I’ve never read the camera manual (you know how guys are :p) nor stored it. It was thrown into my recycle bin the day it was delivered to us.
Then I found a USB port on the VTech Kidizoom digital camera. I thought it was just like other digital cameras. I connected to PC and surely, it gained the power back. I let it charge for the entire day, but after I disconnected the USB connector, the camera went dead again. Hmmm..!?
That was when I found the two screws on the bottom. It doesn’t say anything about batteries on the surface. I forgot this camera was a “toy”. The battery housings in toys are tightly closed with screws, as you may know. I completely forgot about that. So I unscrewed them and found the hidden batteries! Yes..Yes.. they were just regular AA batteries.
I felt little stupid trying to recharge the digital camera using the USB port, but lessons learned. Anyway, here is how to replace the used batteries for VTech’s Kidizoom digital camera.
