Okay, the same thing happened to me. I ordered a new battery and that was not the problem since the same blinking light was haunting me! So I bought a wall charger for the battery alone and then it worked again on the original docking station. Apparently it will not recognize a completely dead battery on the docking station. It makes no sense but it worked for me. So good luck to you!

Re: cannot charge camera
BAD BATTERY. if it is less than one year old they will replace the battery for you. Contact tech support and give them your contact information. They will require you send in your battery and give you the address to send it to. Then they may be able to send you a replacement free of charge.

As in the first part of the manual is explained, when you have inserted the battery correct and you then plug in the charger, the charger light should go on. When the light is out, the battery is charged. When the light blinks, your battery is fault.
When the light does not go on, when you plug it in a power outlet, the battery is not inserted correct, or the contacts are dirty.
If you want to clean the contacts, please only use a dry cloth. Never us a sharp tool. It would damage the contacts bend repair.
Even when you plug in the charger, with a fully loaded battery, the light should go on for only a few moments.
Make sure the power outlet works normally. and the power cable is not defect.
Read page 16 of the manual. Do not use any other charger with this camera. Are you sure you have the battery inserted correctly? When trying to charge, does the green light blink? If so, when it stops blinking and turns off, the battery should be fully charged. Do not attempt to turn the camera on while the charger is trying to charge the battery.
hold power button down and remove battery at the same time once battery is out put battery into charger, if the light shows red then it needs to be charged if it shows green allow it to stay in the charger for 3 minutes then remove the battery and install in the camera pust the power button on hold for 5 seconds, if the camera comes on your ready to go, if not then you may have damaged the battery pack and will have to replace te battery. If you have a cable that plugs into the camera try using the powrord with battery plugged in, if it does not work then your battery is bad and you will have to purchase from fuji to get the right battery pack.
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.
@gminvite1 "Another way I found was when this happens, to push the battery to the
point the light will turn on, when it starts flashing slide it off then
back on. Do this a few times so it charges a little, then you should be
fine to leave it on."
I tried to do this with my LI-10C Olympus charger and it worked..The blinking red light turns to solid red..Thanks for the info...Now I won't be bothering to buy a new batt.or have my charger checked..
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.
