Charging in cradle not working- get red light but never charges

I did not use my camera for a couple of months. The camera was never dropped or otherwise abused. I went to charge it overnight and the next day I took it out of the charger and tried to Power On but it won't work. when it is in the cradle I can turn on the display and see the pictures on the camera so I know the outlet and camera are connected properly, but the camera won't hold a charge. I just bought this within the last year so it is very frustrating!

BAD BATTERY. if it is less than one year old they may be able to 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.

Battery in cradle don't charge

Two reasons. Either the battery is dead or the cradel's charging circuit is faulty. But the red light shows that the cradle is fine. SO, the axe falls on the battery.

My Casio Exilim EX-S880 wont turn on. Battery is dead but the camera wont charge on the charger. The red charger light is flashing when then camera is placed on it. This red light used to stay on...

I found this while trying to solve my exact same problem.. It worked for me after about 7 times. Some other people on the site said it worked for them after 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.

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.

Samsung NV10 Charging problem

I had the same problem while charging the camera with the cradle. I tried charging directly with the camera and it looks good. Problem seems to come from the cradle itself. Phil

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!

Digimax i5 problem charging battery

■ Charging LED 

Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged
Red LED is blinking = Charging error
 Green LED is on = Charging 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.

If the charging LED doesn't turn to green could mean a signal that the battery is bad or can't charge 100% anymore = too old, needs a new battery. Hope this helps.

Camera will not turn on when out of the cradle

The battery has lost it's memory and needs to be shocked back to life.. This solution worked for me:

"Hi,I just found a soultion on another website and it appears to have worked for me.Apparently the battery loses it memory when fully discharged,to fix this take a 9v battery and place the terminals + to + and - to - with the camera battery for 30 seconds or so then put the battery back in the camera and charge as normal.I just did this and it seems to be charging and the red light is solid.hope this helps."
