Re: charging flash stays on and i cant take a picture...
Hey, I have the same problem. Try turning the power on and while the lense is focusing out apply some resistance with your other hand. Normally the lense will retreat and you will have to power up again. The problem seems to be associated with the opening and closing lense. You may have to repeat this fix each time you power up but it eventually seems to cure itself. I have taken dozens of pictures since I figured out this fix.

The flash gun needs to have a high charge available before it can flash - this can take a few seconds to charge fully ready to give off a full flash "flash"
As batteries get older and uncharged - it takes longer to reach the correct charge on the flash

That is actually the exact same thing I am experiencing but mine has grey lines on the display window. I was able to take photos to a grey screen connect it to my comp...low and behold my pics showed....I am furious....need some answers as I will never hear the end of it from my daughter.
When you charge the battery what does it do? Does the red light flash or stay solid? If it stays solid while it's charging then you should be ok. Casio doesn't recommend using any other brand of battery with their cameras because we don't know how they will react. I would say try a regular Casio battery and see if that solves your problems. I know that means a little more money but a lot of times I have seen that solve the problem right away.
