Question about Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TS20 Digital Camera Blue dmc-ts20a Norman Camera
Both batteries indicate fullly charged
The charger can tell the voltage is high enough, but still not sure the camera will work. Did you check ale contacts also the ones in the camera, are clean and shiny? Only a little spec of dust, can give you lots of trouble. To be sure the batteries are both ok, use a multimeter and check the voltage. On the multi meter the voltage should be just a few tenths of a volt higher than what is printed on the battery. I think your battery must be 3,7 Volt, so at least 3,8 volt should be measured, because the multimeter does not take any current from the battery. My 3,7 Volt Kodak batteries, still give 4,03 and 4,07 volt, three months after they are charged. Those are Li-ion batteries.
As soon as they give less then the printed value just after charging, you know they are not ok anymore.

The Red indicator flashing in the Camera may be the Access Lamp or the Power Lamp. The Access Lamp is located below the Control buttons and the Power Lamp near to the power button. If the Access Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is accessing the Memory. Do not remove the Memory Stick or Batter while the Access Lamp is lit.
If the Power Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is turned on. If the Lamp is lit in Red it shows that the Battery is not having enough charge. Insert new batteries or charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries to resolve the issue.
You may also try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. If the issue persists, service may be required.
