Battery Charging Problem

I am unable to charge my V7 via the charger cradle. I have tried both the original battery and a spare I have, but the cradle charger light is always flashing green. According to the manual, this means the charger is on standby, and the batteries do not recharge. To actually charge the camera, the light needs to be solid red, until the battery is charged, when it then goes green. There is no advice on how to get the cradle out of this 'standby' mode. Any help please! I can't use my camera!

Re: Battery Charging Problem

First of all I would make sure that the battery is in correctly. There should be an arrow on the battery that should line up with a plus sign on the battery door. Once the battery is installed correctly then place the camera on the charger and the light should be a solid red. If that still doesn't work then I would be more inclined to think that you may have a defective charger. I would call Casio repairs and see what they can do to help you.

Camera doesn't seem to accept a charge Camera

Yes. You need a new battery. I would assume the same. Have the battery checked or try charging it in the battery charging cradle overnight.

Battery charging

before we assume that it could be the camera! ever tried using other chargers? check the specifications (output voltage and current) of your charger! try comparing it to your Dad's charger! if they match, it would be safe for you to use it on yours! try cleaning also your camera's charger input plug!

The battery changer not charging the camera battery

Does any light come from the battery charger?
If not, then the battery charger need to be replaced.

Try to connect your camera via PC.
Check if it can be charged via PC, if it can, it means you camera's battery is ok, if not, you need to get new battery.

Whenever I charge the battery, the orange light on the charger won't light up/show. Then, when I put the battery in the camera, it will not turn on.

Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. This one may have simply stopped working.

However, it is worthwhile checking that the contacts on both battery and charger are clean. Dirt or corrosion can prevent the battery from charging.

There is also the possibility that the charger has failed. You can buy a new battery and try charging it. If it charges, then the charger is good and the old battery was the problem. If it doesn't, then you must get a replacement charger, and you will have a spare battery, which is no bad thing.

Battery Charger Olympus li-40c

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.

Battery will not charge

Here is how you fix the problem (without using a 9V battery method...).

The battery doesn't charge because it's been fully discharged.

What you do is you put the camera into the cradle. Now you see that the Red LED comes on solid for a while. It's charging for a few seconds. Then it starts blinking. When it does that - TAKE THE CAMERA OUT of the cradle.

Now put the camera back and repeat. Do this six or eight times. Each time what's happening is that the battery is getting a tiny bit of charge. After 8 times the LED will come on red and stay solid red.

Bingo, no problem!

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.
