Casio NP20 battery does not charge,charger keeps flashing, does this mean I need new battery? also,it has 700MAH will 800 do when I replace it? was does this mean


Hello,

If you have had the battery a long time or have charged it often it will need replacing if it does not charge.
800MAH is the capacity of the battery, how much power it can store.
800 is better than 700 and if it is a NP20 it will be OK in your camera.

Hope this helps.

No power Fuji F10


The symptom of light staying on briefly then going off suggest the battery is dead. If you bought a new battery did you put it in correctly? turn it around and try again.

Battery life?


Here is a replacement source

The batteries are covered under warranty for three years. Sony batteries are know for not keeping a good charge after a few years.

If there not holding a charge, they wouldn't appear on the LCD screen at all. I the AC power is working fine, then that probably isn't the source for not getting a charge.

You could try lightly scraping the contacts on the battery and see if that makes a difference and recharge them.

Battery Charge error


Hey Lak_69,
One problem I know of is the battery for your camera should be model NP-20 not model NP-40. The NP-20 has 650mAh. I would exchange your new battery for the correct model battery, and see if this works. If this doesn't work I would try cleaning the battery terminals in the camera, and if that doesn't work go ahead and try a new charger.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Battery Charge Light not working & can't display battery info


This sounds similar to a problem I had. I brought the camera in under warranty and the repair shop fixed it. They shop text is cryptic.
Problem: Camera light keeps flashing, not charge
Solution: Troubleshoot to intermittent switch block control, replace with new one, test OK.
