Casio Elixim Camera will not pop out the Battery to charge.
This is the third Casio Camera I have had and I am not happy with the pop out battery that I have to charge in a separate battery charger. I prefer to place the entire camera in a self charging unit. Does anyone know of a camera repair that won't charge what the camera cost to repair?

If you have had the battery a long time or have charged it often it will need replacing if it does not charge. 800MAH is the capacity of the battery, how much power it can store. 800 is better than 700 and if it is a NP20 it will be OK in your camera.
Remove the battery and make sure the contacts are clean. It might even be sufficient (for a while) to just remove the battery and put it back in. If that works, you should clean the contacts.
The next step is to try another battery. If you can borrow one from a friend with the same model, do so. If that charges, your battery is bad. If it doesn't charge, ask your friend to try charging your battery in the other camera. If it charges, then try borrowing the AC adapter. That will help isolate the problem without spending money. If it goes this far, post a response on your results.
Your problem may be due to worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances
are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera.
And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
Found out that if battery needs charging, camera will not turn on at all. I guess I had a senior moment. Button was not stuck just no power to turn on camera. After charging battery everything is fine.
ok my friends is very easy and let me tell you something wokrs.just take the battery of the camera and any transformer with output 9v put one wire on the (+)and another on the(-) after take you battery and put (+)--(+) and (-) for just 3 o 4 seconds that will reactivate the battery and put it back to the charger ,,,i tried my self and works good luck
Hey, I just had this problem with a Sanyo battery pack (and i thought it was the non-sanyo Li battery) and noticed it wasn't getting warm even 2 hours after "charging" and the red light was flashing - so i turned it off, disconnected the cable from the charger and realised it could go the other way, so tried that AND IT WORKED! i don't know what that cable is called, the 2-prong black cable, but give that a go (turn off in between!).
I just had this happen to mine too. I think this is a design problem with the camera/battery combination. My camera has a lithium polymer battery (most do now). Lithium polymer (lipo for short) batteries should never be allowed to discharge below about 2.75 volts. Letting the battery discharge below that level will actually permanently damage the cell.
In order to keep that from happening, the device that uses the lipo should have protection circuitry that prevents the battery from falling below that level. I think this is where the Casio camera may have an issue. I found that if I left the battery in the camera for about a month, I was not able to charge it! Lipo battery chargers are more sophisticated than typical charges because lipos need to be charged in a specific way. The first thing a lipo charger does is to check the voltage of the battery you insert into it. If it is below a critical minimum voltage, it will not even charge the battery (Casio charger blinks red continuously).
There are a couple tricks you can do to get the battery to charge, but that's not the important thing here. I think Casio needs to address this issue with our cameras. It would be nice if we could just update the firmware in the camera, but I'm not sure we can do that. I intend to contact Casio to see if they know anything. Based on how many posts like this I have read, I bet they do.
