Not sure which camera you're referring to. I can only find a WG-3 in the manual section on Operation Manuals Download : Support & Service | RICOH IMAGING

Assuming it's the same camera, how do you know it's not charging? Power lamp not flashing? Power lamp does not stop flashing? Other ....?

Note: I'm not familiar with your camera,

USB cords can be picky, especially when the connectors are worn. Try pushing the connector slightly up or down and see if that helps. I have to angle mine upwards slightly when charging my phone; getting a new cable would eliminate the problem entirely.
