My guess, only support people know what the two beeps mean.
Try to remove the battery and after a few seconds insert it again.
Then again switch on. If the error returns, contact the dealer or Casio support. Still it could be you think the battery is charged, but the capacity is not enough to power up your camera.
The solution to your problem is simple, Kathrynbax.
The battery never comes in fully charged. It's always charged only so you may be able to check if your camera is working. I suggest, you take out your battery and put it to charge for exactly 90 minutes as the manual says. Then I'm sure you won't face any such problems.
Put a pin in the reset button situated in the tripod hole.Do it three times for about thirty seconds each time.Also depress the on off switch for about thirty seconds.Put it in the usb port of your computer to charge.After about thirty minutes or an hour the screen should go white.A battery shows on the screen.Wait till the battery shows all green,then it is fully charged.
Here's what I found and it actually worked after about 7 times. Others said they had to do it about 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. ylu1 writes: 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.
In some instances even if the battery is new or fully charge, the same symptoms would be exhibited. If this is the case, it is probable that the battery contacts needs a bit of cleaning/scraping. Additionally, it may require slightly bending the said camera's battery contacts to ensuire a bit more pressure towards the battery.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
same thing happened to me and I've found 2 solutions:
1. Casio has recognized that this is a problem with the battery. If you call the support line and tell them the problem, they will send you a new battery for free. All you need is the serial code on the bottom of your battery.
2. This sounds crazy but it worked for me. Take a 9v battery and touch the connectors to the connectors of your np 20 casio battery. make sure to touch + to + and - to -. hold it there for 30 -60 seconds. put the np 20 back in the camera and put the camera on the dock. this will give it just enough charge that the charger will recognize the battery and start charging your camera to full.
