Flashing Red LED charging light

Second new EX-S600 camera. Battery is in properly. Camera is in charging cradle properly. I cannot get steady red led light for charging. I have checked and re-checked. Everything is placed properly. I looked at online manual: This is the second camera. The first had the same problem and I returned it. Could it be the batteries are too old that come with these cameras? Or am I consistently doing something wrong. Everything is installed correctly. Professor Ferklempt.

  • llmik3j Apr 01, 2009

    I had the same problem with the blinking light on the charger. I was very skeptical, but the youtube video worked the first time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTrPN83_7... I cut up a 0.1A charger from a Motorola bluetooth headset and aluminum foil strips since I didn't have any aluminum cans around.  It actually works!

You can salvage your old battery. Sounds crazy but you can take a 9 volt battery and jumper it to the old battery . It will put enough charge in the np-20 to make it start charging in the cradle. Takes about 20 seconds.. make sure you go + to + .. the size of the 9 volt fits perfectly.

The 9 volt pre-charging method mentioned above worked for me! ~ 20 seconds.
to get a good connection i had to use paperclips wrapped around the terminals.

I tried the method of removing and replacing the battery onto the charger. After the first 10 secs. the red light starts to flash. On about the 5 or 6 time after removing and replacing the battery until it starts to flash, it stayed on after the 10 secs without flashing again. I will know if it takes a solid charge after a couple of hours. Thanks to the guys that posted the solution. It was a lot safer than disconnecting my motorcycle battery. Less work too.

I have the same problem - camera is 8 years old - I live in Canada - just called Casio US they are sending me a new battery free of charge. Also I just did the recommendation of putting it on and off 3 or 4 times - seems to charge a bit each time, here is what to do - as soon as it flashes red take it off and immediately put it back on - do this 3 or 4 times and then it starts to charge - it worked for me. The reason it is not charging is because the battery is totally dead. I tried the 9v thing did not seem to work for me although not sure if it may have given a bit of charge. Good luck!

I have the problem with the battery NP 20 for camera Casio EXilim 60.
The manual told if the charger was blinking there was a problem with the charger og battery - yes.

I cold buy a new battery !!

But there is a solution.
You could take a charger and take the positiv to + and the negativ to -. Only for a few seconds or minute.
You should now use the charger with a non-blinking red lamp.

It was because the battery was total empty.

Posted on Aug 16, 2008

Had the same problem but didn't go through the mess of cutting wires,etc. What I did was to charge and remove the camera over and over again for about 5 times. If you notice, the red light actually remains steady for the 1st couple of seconds. Im guessing it probably charges the battery during that period. Its charging with a steady red light now. It should be alright!

Yup! simple phone call gets a new battery in 5 to 7 days!

Here is an inventive way to get your battery to charge.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTrPN83_7bM

Apparently, if the battery is completely discharged, the charger will not recognize the battery.

Flashing red lamp indicator on NP-20 battery charger means that it sensed the battery but the battery isn't drawing any current from it.

Try this first. If you have access to any 6 Volt DC source, ie. motorcycle battery, briefly tap the plus (+) and minus (-) terminal of the NP-20 battery with the wires conneted to plus (+) and minus (-) terminals of the 6 volt motorcycle battery.

You may have to do this 3-4 times. Put back the battery in charger and see if the red lamp goes steady. If it does, that means your battery is revived and is now charging.

Word of caution: Under any circumstances DO NOT SHORT CIRCUIT THE WIRES FROM THE MOTORCYCLE BATTERY!

Good Luck.

I had same problem and I called up service centre here in Sydney, Australia. They acknowledge that they do have lots of complaints about NP-20 battery and advised me to send batteries along with proof of purchase. They will replace it with new ones.

Looks like there was a large batch of NP-20 faulty batteries.

I just called Casio about this using the phone number above and they're sending me a replacement battery for free (I live in the United States).

I had a problem like that. When trying to port over the images on to the computer.. it would say not enough power and disconnect.
But when I checked, it turned out it really needs a USB 2 port and not USB 1 (like my old camera)

My front panel ports are only USB 1 so now when I stick the cable into the USB 2 on the back of the computer, all is working perfectly.

Hope this is a bit of help.

Cheers,

Ellen, Ontario, Canada

Just a word of caution - I read this and contacted Casio (London). They have asked me to post the battery to them so they can check it and only then will they send out a new battery. At the moment there is a postal strike on so I don't want to post anything. Not as helpful as the last Casio contact I'm afraid!!!

Posted on Oct 09, 2007

With a new EX-S600 camera, Casio states they are having Lithium battery problems. I called Casio and they are shipping me out a new battery free of charge. Casio phone: (800) 435-7732. You need seriel number which is on the bottom of the camera on the battery/memory chip door. http://www.casio.com Good Luck Professor Ferklmept-Out!

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.

EX S880 not charging


you have a bad battery common when the battery sits to long with out being charged they are like 5 bucks on ebay.

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


Hello,
■ 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.

Auto Focus not working


First off your blinking battery light means you have a faulty battery and you need to have that replaced. Call tech support and they will replace that for you. Once that is charged up all the way then hopefully the camera will work properly for you. If not try resetting it.

Charger red lite flashing. Camera comes on for one second and shuts off


Hello,
Here's a copy from the owners manual:
■ Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged 
Red LED is blinking = Charging error 
Green LED is on = Carging 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.


Another charging error is when the batteries are so depleted, they won't charge up to 100% anymore = red light doesn't go out and remains on for too long, means get a new battery.

Battery will not hold a charge.


Casio says:

Red blinking light = defective battery

No flashing light = possible defective charger.

What you can do is send all your stuff into casio and they will test everything for you and see what they could replace for you.

A red flashing light does NOT mean it charging. THat means you have a defective battery. Call tech support and tell them that you have a defective battery and they may be able to get a replacement for you.
