Hi, i came to NYC for the summer and bought myself the camera, which worked fine for a few days. but 2days ago, i charged it overnight and the next day, it didnt switch on....assuming it wasnt charged i attempted to charge the battery only to get a blinking red signal. so today i went to a store where they had the exact camera just to check whether its my battery or the actual camera (which i found hard to believe bcos i havent dropped or mistreated it)but the salesman put in a battery from another exilim only to find the camera still wouldnt turn on! Mayb i will take my charger to be cheked tommorow but is ther any type of reset method or is my camera doomed? Thanks

Re: My Exilim camera!
If this happens allot of the times you have to remove the battery from the camera for 24 hr so the camera's compositors can discharge all the way and not it is not the circuit board. Some time the circuit over loads and has to be discharged because of the polarity the electricity is travailingthought the circuits now I know diodes are suppose to prevent this but it is a common problem. hope this helps.

batteries don't have a life forever. And no one can predict the life time of a battery.
So many factors influence the lifetime. But if it is draining very fast, this mostly means it has reached the end of life. If the camera does not get excessive hot, it has nothing to do with the camera. It is just you need a new battery.
To keep a battery in shape for a longer time you should charge it also when the camera is not used. Like at least 4 times a year. Always charge the battery a day before you plan to use it. Don't over charge, like charging it every day. Don't leave it in the bright sun or on a hot place.
A new battery, should be charged and discharged a few times, before it gets a full charge.
The "New" battery you bought, could be in stock for a long time. Special when you could buy it very cheap.
Perhaps in a few days you say, he the battery works fine now. But if you did charge it 3 or more times and it still does not hold a charge. send the battery back (I hope you bought one with warranty)
Casio cameras use generally chinese batteries. They are mostly under an acceptable quality. So the battery you have bought may be out of order. I do not think that your camera is out of order.
Try another working battery.
If it will not work then send me a comment and lets control additionally.
The problem is the spring terminals inside the camera are not making good contact with the battery. I had to use a screw driver and gently push them to the left to make better contact with the battery terminals. There are three connections. I stress that you be gentle. This not the long term fix but you will be able to take pictures in the short term.
I have a casio exilim ex-z60 which I bought 2 yrs ago. I've had problems with my flash going off each time I turned on and off the camera, about 5 months ago. Now the flash does not work. Need help on how to restore the flash bulb or battery in the camera.
