I just called the phone number from the previous poster and was treated to a courteous CSR who immediately explained that they were having a problem with their lithium batteries and that they would immediately send a replacement. Very positive experience and very responsible service from Casio.
I had the same problem, so I called the Casio customer service line at: 800-435-7732. A real person answered the phone on the 3rd ring (amazing). She said that it's a common problem, and they're sending me one free of charge tomorrow.
Sucks to have a problem, but I have to admit that the Casio customer service couldn't be better on this one.
OK -read enough to realize this Casio Exillim770- as cool as it is- ...sucks on battery AND charger issues. Have had mine for 6 months an all of a sudden getting the flashing red light on the charger and no charge. Bought one on ebay (charger and battery $18) to replace - I'll post if this helps. If so, Casio's package deal stinks if only lasting 6 months.- at price of $275+.

Sometimes, this is a result of a battery that is too cold (below freezing-warm it up). Sometimes it can be too hot (discharged under heavy stress-let it cool down). Sometimes there may be insufficient voltage, I have had problems in older houses, get closer to the electrical panel to plug in, or you may have to wait until you get home. Red flashing may mean https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rZqYmPsZycthe charger or battery is to hot and must cool down before it will charge. The charger will not charge a battery if the lights are flashing. Solid Red light means it is charging and solid green light means it is charged. Plug the charger in first before putting the battery on the charger. If the charger has been dropped or hit the floor the coil inside could have broke loose and damaged the charger requiring it to be replaced. Below is an unconventional way to charge the battery if the charger is no good. BE CAREFUL how to charge broken makita BL1830 Li ion battery
Ridgid charger lights read as follows: Solid red; charger has power. Flashing red; charger is evaluating the battery, checking if it's cool enough to charge and if it is in chargeable condition. If the battery is hot, i.e. just came off the tool after extended use, it won't charge the battery until it cools down. Flashing red & green; the battery is defective and the charger will not charge it. Solid red & flashing green; battery is charging. Solid green; battery is full.
I really don't have any idea as to what you're talking about here other than a battery and maybe a charger. Seems as if you're saying that you have a 12 volt 1.5 amp automatic battery charger connected to a 12 volt, 8.5amph battery but the red light on your charger is blinking. The blinking red light indicates that the charger is not seeing a proper connection such as crossed polarity connection or simply a poor connection. You say that the battery voltage has dropped from 12.5 volts to 9.1 volts with the charger connected. If this is the case, the battery is badly discharged and the charger is not charging the battery for some reason. The charger may be bad but check the connections to make certain they are correct and good. If they are, I'd replace the charger.
As you know, solid red on your charger means that the battery is fully charged and the BLINKING red light means the battery is charging. Unless the light is blinking irradically everything is working the way it is supposed to. If the light is blinking irradically, the battery may just be too hot or too cold to charge ( like when you are driving many lags and your battery dies) and in this case simply wait 15 minutes to charge. If you get a fast blinking light still, the problem probably is with the battery.
I had the exact same problem so I went searching for an answer. Here's what I found and it really did work. I had to do it about 7 times... and I read others had to do it about 20 times. But worked for them as well. 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.
Dust getting in the charger is a problem, Try blowing it out with a moisture-free dust remover, found at most any store. Green flashing means improper power, due to dust or power from the outlet, try a differant wall outlet. Red flashing means the charger or battery is to hot and must cool down before it will charge. The charger will not charge a battery if the lights are flashing. Solid Red light means it is charging and solid green light means it is charged. Plug the charger in first before putting the battery on the charger. If the charger has been droped or hit the floor the coil inside could have broke loose and dammaged the charger requiring it to be replaced.
I had this problem a few weeks ago (i.e. flashing red LED). All I did was remove the power plug from the charging unit, turned it around 180 degrees, then plugged it back into the charging unit. Red LED came on steady & the battery (which is the one that came with the camera) recharged as normal.
