You have the wrong instructions - you need to connect the plus side of the nine volt battery to the + side of the Casio battery. Same, negative to negative. Think of it as "forcing" electrons from the negative side of the 9 volt into the negative side of the battery - giving it a fillup.

You take a 9 volt battery and take a metal paper clip or anything this and metal and connect it from the + side of the 9 volt battery and the - side of the camera batery. take another mateal object and connect it from the - 9 volt battery to the + of the camera battery. hold it for about 30 seconds (it might be easier if someone helps you) and place the camera battery back in the charger. that should give the camera battery enough power to help it boost up its charge and make the flashing stop

My casio exilim ex-z60 wont switch on, I put battery in charger for hours and light flashed red constantly (overnight) so I plugged it into the computer with USB but nothing????


Thank you every one who posted solutions.
I was all set to try the 9 volt trick until i realised i didnt have one so i tried someone else's suggestion of constantly re-inserting the battery until the red light stays constant. Touch wood, but it seems to have worked.

When the battery is in the charger it flashes red & won't charge, have no idea what problem is! Have casio exilim lithium ion NP-20 battery & a casio exilim 7.2 megapixels camera. Can't turn camera...


I called casio and they told me that when you have a red flashing light on the charger it means the lithium battery is no longer any good. They offered to send me one free of charge. It's been several weeks and I have yet to receive it.

How do you use the solution with charging one battery from another? don't understand. Do you have another solution to charge the Casio exilim


Tear off two small pieces of aluminum foil, each one no larger than a fingernail. Fold each one into the same size as the contact points on the Casio Exilim battery you want to jumpstart. Place them on that battery and press them onto the battery contact points. The aluminum foil pieces should protrude enough from the Exilim battery to touch the jumping battery. Then take a 9-volt battery, match the positive and negative terminals to the Exilim battery, and press the 9-volt onto the pieces of foil that protrude from the Exilim battery. Keep the batteries together for about 30 seconds; you may feel the Exilim battery become slightly warmer. Then put the Exilim battery into the charger; you should now see a steady red light with no blinking. This method worked for me.

The batterie charger for my Casio Exilim EX-Z77 has a blinking red light instead of a continous red light when i try charging the batterie. also, it doesnt appear to be charging it at all. Left in in for...


The blinking light indicates a charging error. Try connecting a 9 volt battery to your camera battery. Sometimes if the battery has lost all charge, the charger doesn't recognize it properly.

I am not able to charge the Exilim battery.


I HAVE A RED BLINKING LIGHT, AS WELL. FIRST, I CALLED STAPLES, BECAUSE OF THE EXTENDED WARRANTY I PURCHASED. AFTER A 10 MINUTE TUG OF WAR, WITH AN AUTOMATED OPERATOR, I WAS FINALLY CONNECTED TO A HUMAN. I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS A BATTERY ISSUE AND IT WAS NOT COVERED ( BIG SURPRISE ). SO, I JUST CALLED CASIO @ 1-800-435-7732. A LIVE OPERATOR ( BONNIE ) CAME ON THE LINE WITHIN 2 MINUTES. SHE ASKED ME THE MODEL NO. ( EX-Z75 ) AND PURCHASE DATE ( CHRISTMAS '07 )...SHE SAID THAT IT HAS BECOME AN ONGOING PROBLEM WITH THE LITHIUM BATTERY. A NEW REPLACEMENT BATTERY WILL BE SENT OUT, TOTAL FREE OF CHARGE WITHIN 5-7 DAYS! NO PROOF OF PURCHASE WAS REQUIRED. CASIO IS A PLEASANT SURPRISE IN TODAYS CORPORATE WORLD.
WHILE POSTING THIS, I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE THE 9 VOLT BATTERY TRICK A TRY. AGAIN, I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED...IT WORKS! :)

Problem with the battery


I just had this happen to mine too. I think this is a design problem with the camera/battery combination. My camera has a lithium polymer battery (most do now). Lithium polymer (lipo for short) batteries should never be allowed to discharge below about 2.75 volts. Letting the battery discharge below that level will actually permanently damage the cell.

In order to keep that from happening, the device that uses the lipo should have protection circuitry that prevents the battery from falling below that level. I think this is where the Casio camera may have an issue. I found that if I left the battery in the camera for about a month, I was not able to charge it! Lipo battery chargers are more sophisticated than typical charges because lipos need to be charged in a specific way. The first thing a lipo charger does is to check the voltage of the battery you insert into it. If it is below a critical minimum voltage, it will not even charge the battery (Casio charger blinks red continuously).

There are a couple tricks you can do to get the battery to charge, but that's not the important thing here. I think Casio needs to address this issue with our cameras. It would be nice if we could just update the firmware in the camera, but I'm not sure we can do that. I intend to contact Casio to see if they know anything. Based on how many posts like this I have read, I bet they do.

Good luck to use all.

Lithium ion battery won't charge


known issue, battery needs to be 'shocked" back to life. Here's the fix:

"Hi,I just found a soultion on another website and it appears to have worked for me.Apparently the battery loses it memory when fully discharged,to fix this take a 9v battery and place the terminals + to + and - to - with the camera battery for 30 seconds or so then put the battery back in the camera and charge as normal.I just did this and it seems to be charging and the red light is solid.hope this helps."

Flashing Red LED charging light


You can salvage your old battery. Sounds crazy but you can take a 9 volt battery and jumper it to the old battery . It will put enough charge in the np-20 to make it start charging in the cradle. Takes about 20 seconds.. make sure you go + to + .. the size of the 9 volt fits perfectly.
