I found this while trying to solve my exact same problem.. It worked for me after about 7 times. Some other people on the site said it worked for them after 20 times. Good luck!

My NP 20 gave me the flashing red light of death and I got Casio to replace it. Then I had the same problem with my second NP 20 so I dug around for a way to fix it and I found the following advice on a site called FixYa. It worked instantly and I didn't risk ruining my battery.

I had the same problem as this.
what i did was...
i kept putting the battery on the charger then took it off as soon as the red light came on.
i did this about 6 times.
doing this puts a bit of charge in the battery each time before the charger starts to flash.
after the battery as got enough charge in it it can start to charge.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: after snorkeling camera wont work at all

The sad saga of buggered u/w cameras continues. Check the interior of your camera carefully for any sigh of salt which will look like white crusty deposits or resulting corrosion. If you find same, it a major repair or toss the camera. One must be *extremely* careful when cleaning the seals and closing up an underwater camera. The slightest contamination on the seals such as lint, a hair, a grain of sand or whatever, is all it takes.

Consider cameras used on or around or under salt water as an expendable item. Harsh but true in my long experience in U/W
photography. Was NOT much of a problem with w/ film cameras, but the modern electronic wonders are very delicate.

SOURCE: 7 days ago i took my battery off to charge my

Please make sure that the battery is clean and also the terminals within are clean. If you had been using the camera prior to the charging then the camera must work unless if the battery was spoiled by wrong charging. If you can use a multimeter to check the voltage which must be as specified on the battery label. Now make sure that the battery gets good contacts into the camera when inserted. If this wont work then it possible that there are errors within the camera and you need help from the nearest Nikon center.click the link below

Camileo p10 wont turn on or charge


I had a similar problem with the P10 not charging via USB, I purchased mine second hand so it came with no charger just a USB cable. I assumed it would charge by the USB cable but it did not, the red light flashes but doesn't charge. Luckily I have an external battery charger for a different camera i got some years ago that takes a similar battery , the P10 battery didn't fit properly so I had to place it at a 45 degree angle into the charger making sure the outer contacts were lined up properly and taped it into place. After an hour it was fully charged and the camera is working fine. The charger is a 4.2 volt charger. New external chargers can be picked up on ebay cheaply

Welcome to FixYa.

1. Make sure that the battery meets the required battery type for your camera.
2. If you are using rechargeable battery, make sure it is charged properly.
3. The battery you newly bought might be defective. It happens once in a while specially if the battery is an old stock.

Will not stay on.. turns on and then beeps once and turns off.. the battery is fully charged


Welcome to FixYa.

There are three reasons why your camera power ceases while in use.

* The Battery is exhausted
- insert a charged battery or recharged the battery
* The camera is turned off automatically
- turn on the camera power again
* Operation has ceased in a low temperature outside of the camera usage temperature range
- make sure the camera and battery warm by placing them in your pocket, etc. and then immediately before shooting,place the battery in the camera and then shoot.

In your case, posible will be the 3rd reason. If you still having the same issue after doing the troubleshooting. I also suggest to removed and re-insert the battery and try to switch it on again.

If this option wont work, you have to contact your service center.

I will be more happy to know if my solution will help you or not on your issues on your camera.
Feel free to reply on this for any question or comments.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Are the batteries fo Powershot A85 rechargeable


This camera takes ordinary AA batteries. You can use alkaline ones, which are mostly not rechargeable, or you can use a set of AA size NiMH rechargeable ones, which will last longer per charge than a set of alkalines. You will need a separate charger for the batteries, they won't charge in the camera. You can buy a charger complete with a set of batteries cheaply online or in shops. Get ones marked 2300 mAH or 2700 mAH if you can- they will last longer than ones with lower ratings.

My camera wont turn on


Have you completely charged the camera? Try removing the battery and place it again closing the battery door properly. If its a Megapixel camera, attach the camera to your computer and see if you get MSDC on the LCD screen. Ask for a replacement only as the last alternative.

Canon a85 problem


Could be that the non-rechargeable batteries are blocking current from the rechargeable ones. Either get all rechargeable and charge them AT LEAST 14 hours before using, or use all alkaline - fresh. If the same display happens it could be a defective CCD which is being replaced FREE by Canon. Go here for details: http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html
