I usually charge my camera on my dock. I leave it on the dock unless I am using it. I got ready to use it today and it was showing a full charge, but when I turned it on, there was a red flashing light and then the camera turned off. Even during the flashing light the screen remained dark. I have tried changing the batteries, but that did not help. I have not dropped it or exposed it to water. I haven't had any problems until now and I have had this camera over a year. What else can I do?
Had the same problem, took a pencil eraser and scrubbed the battery contacts (both on the battery door and down in the camera), blew out the crumbs and all is well! Camera now powers up and works like new.
I am having a similar problem with mine althoug I don't have a dock. I've contacted Kodak support and they tell me that the Alkaline AA batteries that I have been using for a long time is not what they recommend. They say that I should be using KAA2HR Kodak Ni-MH Battery Pack or CRV Lithium 2x AA Lithium. Other than that they don't offer any futher help except for me to send the camera in for repair. I don't understand why the type of batteries would make a difference all of the sudden.

Yeah one would assume battery in this unit is not working like it should and may need replacment, or your flash capacitor inside is not filling with charge to power unit off the dock. Ether way here your going to need to have this fixed.
You need to find a camera shop local or send it back to casio for repairs ether way.

with new batterys you may find if quicker to charge them in a battery charger and not in the camera,,,the camera charger is for "topping up" the batterys realy not fully recharging them its so you can leave the camera on its docking port and it will have fully charged batterys in it when you wont to use it,, to fully charge a new set of batterys it could take days,,,,so overnight is to short a charge to recharge them,,,leave the camera on its docking station for a fuw days at least, or use a home charger for your type of battery ie:AAA or AA, both take 16 hours to recharg fully
Hi, if you are using the KLIC-5000 battery try to clean the metal contacts on the battery. Try also to remove the battery of your camera dock your camera on the docking station then turn on the camera, if the camera will not turn on it means the charging mechanism of the dock is defective. Now if the camera turns on it means the battery is defective that is why you can charged it.
You can actually charge this camera right from your computer's USB port. Use the small, rectangular hole and plug the small end of the USB cord into that and the other end into the USB port in your computer or laptoip. The green charging light should come on but the computer won't recognize new hardware since you don't need to turn the camera on. In fact, it will charge faster if you leave it off, so you can just leave that plugged in for a few hours and go about your business.
Hope that helps. Good luck. :)
The problem might be that the battery has developed memory and won't charge further. My first battery used to do that, but then I read that you shouldn't leave the camera on the dock all the time nor keep the battery fully charged all the time because of the problem of developing memory. You might try running the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Sometimes when my battery is low the dock won't charge (but goes straight to the red light), but when I run it completely down when I put it on the dock it charges properly. I hope this information helps. :-)
Not a solution, but just today mine is doing the same thing. Left light is on but not charging. I thought maybe it was the batteries needed replacing, but putting the new ones in did not change a thing. Do these cameras ever go defunct? Guess I will take mine to a camera shop tomorrow and see what they say. And I just used it to take a picture the other day. Usually by pressing the left light it stars the charge.. but not today. A
There is obviously a connection problem between the camera and the dock.
Is it possible to recharge via a normal charger.
I don't think you will get a repair- unless it is a young camera with some warranty left
The EasyShare camera dock automatically stops charging the batteries after it registers a full charge, so it is fine to leave the EasyShare digital camera on the EasyShare camera dock for short periods. However, leaving the camera on the dock for longer periods (days or weeks) is not recommended because this can cause problems with your camera and the batteries.
