When I first got this camera I fully charged its battery, when it drained, I put it on the charger again, the red light was on for a day but when I put it back in the camera it wasnt charged, I put it again in the charger and I also left it for a day and afterwards the red light was blinking, I tried it again but still the battery isnt charged, any idea?
I buy a lot of broken Exilim cameras on eBay. The NP-20 battery a lot of times won't charge with the Casio charger. I have an aftermarket charger, bought on eBay for $8 or so, that seems to put a little more current into it, and bring it back to life. The Casio charger then works ok on it.
Or, a new battery will work as suggested.

Re: Battery not charging
You need a new battery. That battery goes dead maybe its a factory defect its very rare this to happen but try to contact the Company to ask if you have a warranty for this unit. One more thing make sure that your charger is functioning.

Well you mentioned that it worked fine yesterday with the battery out of the box. That should tell you that the camera and the battery are both fine. The issue is likely the charger itself. Try recharging it again, and double check that you inserted the batteries correctly, and that any switches (such as for 2 or 4 battery charge) are set in the correct position on the charger. If this doesn't work, take the charger back to the store for exchange/refund as defective.
The Kidizoom is a camera, not a battery charger. If you wan to use rechargeable batteries, you'll have to charge those batteries in a separate, appropriate charger.
If by "dead" you mean a broken, defective, or past end of life battery, then there is nothing you can do to charge it again. If you simply mean a completely drained battery, put it into an appropriate charger and charge it following the instructions for that charger.
Thank you for such a detailed description, wishing others would take your lead. To the problem camera designated batteries (other then AA rechargeable) have always been a bit of a sore spot for me because the user is compelled to purchase a specific battery. As much as I prefer the name brand accessories for the camera there come a point where you just gotta venture forth with third party accessories. There is nothing wrong with using an "off" brand in fact what I've found is that is some cases they are a better battery. Again back to the problem. I grasping thoughts on how to word this but, here goes. As much as the manufactures would like you to believe that these batteries do not form a memory they do. Also the battery can trick you into thinking it's fully charged when in fact even though the charge light is saying completed it's only got about 1/3 charge. I've worked with Canon's BP 511 and now the "new" BP 511A for many years The BP511A or equivalent is the better battery. What needs to be done is to drain those batteries down until they stop, let it cool don't take it from the camera to the charger. Time the battery when you put it on the charger, meaning not to the second but what you would "normally" do is plug the battery into the charger and leave it right. Well what's possibly happening is that within ten minute the ready light is coming on, (something stupid going on in the battery) So check the battery stat of charge after say 15 minutes and if it says it ready (drum roll please) remove the battery unplug the charger for a few seconds and place the battery charger back onto the wall outlet and plug the battery back into the charger and look at your watch again. I've had to do this as much as three times until the thing would get the idea it was to take a charge "normally" about 2 hours will bring it back up. There is no device I've found to completely drain one of these batteries so over a period of time in your case one year the batteries begin this fit. I've since replaced the BP511 for the better BP511A's or equivalent. I'm not pointing a finger because myself and staff do the same thing and pull the battery before going to a shoot if it's showing partial discharge and the thing gets put onto charge and we start this cycle all over again. Be careful of the charger as well meaning don't just disconnect the battery and put it back on charge when it's going the cycle thing disconnect the charger from its power source as well because it holds a memory for a few seconds and will just shut off in a few moments if you don't.
Long story but I've been doing this now for 9 years since the dawn of Canon's 30D Cheers
Take out the battery and put it back and than recharge again. Some times in case of G5 it happens that the camera battery is not properly charged and the indicator shows that its fully charged (i.e. Green light) In such cases battery need to be taken out and than put back again and recharged
Possible failed battery showing fully charged but actually not -or even charger.No reset]
Disconnect from the wall socket- re connect and tell us if the battery is now charging.
If show full- replace battery.
Also tell Sony customer support
This camera has had problems with the primary switch block faulting. The camera will power up all by itself when unattended and drain the battery. Another symptom would be the battery refuses to charge fully because the camera must remain in the "OFF" mode for the charge process to begin.
Sony in Laredo, TX is replacing these controls at little or no cost, I would call them to see if they will repair this for you.
Hope this helps you.
