Question about Casio Exilim EX-S880 Digital Camera

Casio Exilim battery won't charge

When battery is on charger it only flashes. Camera will not turn on. I have the EX-S880. When I put it on the charger, the green light flickers once, then goes dark. With the camera still on the charger, if I press the on/off button, again the green light flickers once, then nothing. I've ordered a replacement battery, but in the meantime am wondering if that is truly the problem - my daughter had to replace her charger because she had a similar problem. What's up with this equipment?

    I have the same battery problem with my Casio Exilim EX-S880 digital camera. I have not used this camera for about 3 weeks and decided to use again. Tried to turn it on but it did not. I then put it on the charger for a full day and noticed the next day the charger red light was still blinking and no green light present. I am able to use the on charger unit controls to view my photos but are not able to use the camera at all off the charger. This really sucks! that when the battery gets below the 5% charge level it will not be able to charge. So a new battery would have to be purchased. battery life has to be charged almost all of the time. I happy with the camera but not at all pleased with the battery performance.

    my camera is doing the same thing, but like all of you I am hesitant to buy a new battery if it isn't going to solve the problem... if the problem IS that the batt can't get below 5% charge... this is a bit ridiculous... a camera is supposed to be portable, and go with you anywhere... but if you have to constantly be able to plug it in, it isn't so portable.

    I have same problem Charger blinks red will not charge at all.

    Brand new battery, fresh out of the box,(it came with the camera), refuses to charge. The charger just flashes red(for two days now). I understand about not letting a battery go below 5%, but this is a new unused battery. Very frusterating, camera was a gift so I have no receipt and wouldn't be able to return to an out of province store anyway. Is there no solution besides buy a new battery. Why make such crappy batteries in the first place. My last camera uses AAA. Standard available everywhere batteries, not proprietary, you must buy our poor quality batteries or you cannot use your camera kind.

Casio batteries have a issue and are very weak you should not let it get below 5% when it is this low the camera will come on say battery is low and turn off. if it remains this or lower the battery can go out the good thing is you can get them really cheap off ebay.

Is there a way i can restart my ex-s880 exilim camera so it will turn on?


Are you having problems getting it to charge if when you put it on the charger the red light blinks then try this : I tired it and it worked... If not you may needa new batt. Just plug the power cord into the craddle, not the usb. Then put the camera on the craddle and let the red light come on, but not long engough to let it flash. Repeat this like 10 - 12 times jsut putting it on for a couple seconds. This will boast the batt engough to let the camera software know that once you put it on the dock that is is suppost to charge

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.

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.

It happened to me. I fixed it by luck . Here is my way . fully charge the camera till the led turns green. "IMPORTANT" unplug the power of the charger first, then remove the camera from the cradle . Then I pressed power button, it worked.

The red light that indicates its charging keeps flashing


How old is the battery? Keep in mind they aren't meant to last for more than a year or two, regardless of how often they're used. Generic replacements are actually inexpensive these days. Here's some from Amazon:

if you try pushing the battery in further it might turn on, if that doesn't work just get a new battery, but make sure to take it out when you aren't using it or this will happen again.
