This maybe a solution. I had the same issue just now. Pulled battery, put back in, placed on dock, and still blinking red. So I removed the camera from the dock, pulled battery, put same old battery back in, placed on the dock and turned the mode switch on right away before it started blinkin red. It seems to be charging now with one bar and has not gone blinking red for 15 minutes.

I was outside with the camera in 10 degree weather taking pics of my dogs but had been inside for 20 minutes before placing it on the doc. I think something may have happened with the charging circuit and turning it on right away with it on the doc may have reset the charging. Try it. Hope it works for you.

Are you using the batteries recommended by the manufacturer? that is a very important fact, even though you can find other batteries that have the same specs, they make the cameras to where it will work best, and sometimes only, with the batteries recommended.

Is the red light on the charger suppose to stay on or blinking for the battery to charge?


It is supposed to stay on. If it is blinking then your battery has gone completely dead. You can force the charger to charge the battery by applying a voltage (AA battery w/ wires worked for me) across the charging terminals while inserting the battery. You'll have to take the charger apart for this.

Digimax i5 problem charging battery


Hello,
■ Charging LED 


Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged
Red LED is blinking = Charging error
 Green LED is on = Charging is complete


● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.


If the charging LED doesn't turn to green could mean a signal that the battery is bad or can't charge 100% anymore = too old, needs a new battery. Hope this helps.

Charger red lite flashing. Camera comes on for one second and shuts off


Hello,
Here's a copy from the owners manual:
■ Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged 
Red LED is blinking = Charging error 
Green LED is on = Carging is complete


● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.


Another charging error is when the batteries are so depleted, they won't charge up to 100% anymore = red light doesn't go out and remains on for too long, means get a new battery.

WON"T WORK


sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)
