Hi,

If you are using the ACA-DC4 Adaptor shown in the attached picture, the camera and adaptor are functioning properly:

Page 11 (of the manual) states:

This camera cannot charge the battery even though the AC adaptor (ACA-DC4; optional) is connected to it.

Page 14 (of the manual) states:

The remaining battery power appears on the screen. It does not appear when you use the camera along
with the AC adaptor ACA-DC4

Page 23 (of the manual) states:

Power save mode is not activated when using the AC adaptor ACA-DC4. Economy mode will not work when using the AC adaptor ACADC4.
