Question about Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery keeps dying

The battery for my Casio Exilim keeps dying shortly after charging it. I put the camera in the charging and the red light comes on. After a few hours the light is green, so I assume the battery is fully charged. I put it in the camera and it works fine for a few minutes. I turn the camera off, and a few hours later I turn it on and it says "Battery power low" and the camera turns off. It seems the battery will not hold a charge. I bought a new battery b/c I thought maybe the battery is bad, but I am still having the same problem. So now I know it can't be the battery. Is there something wrong with my camera that it is draining the battery even while it is turned off? Or is it a problem with the charger in that it isn't actually charging the battery and giving me a false green light? Any help would be much appreciated.

    After charging, the power indicator is divided into three sections and all three sections are full, so it appears that the battery is fully charged.

Most likely the charging circuitry has failed. When you fully charge the new battery what does the battery meter read on the camera? Your two options no matter what the case are repair vs. replacement. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thanks,

    Most likely it is the charging circuitry that has failed in the camera. Doesn't mean it isn't possible there is a drain as well. After you charge the new battery, how much "life" is in the battery, there should be a battery meter on the camera.
    Thanks,

I have a casio exilim ex z77. My battery to my camera wont charge when I put it on the charger. The red light just blinks.


hi, once you charge your battery and the red light blink it means your NP-20 battery is damage and you need to buy new one.TIP- charge 1.5 hours only and if youre not using you camera for a long time its better to remove the battery.

good luck and thank you my friend

The red light that indicates its charging keeps flashing


How old is the battery? Keep in mind they aren't meant to last for more than a year or two, regardless of how often they're used. Generic replacements are actually inexpensive these days. Here's some from Amazon:

How do you use the solution with charging one battery from another? don't understand. Do you have another solution to charge the Casio exilim


Tear off two small pieces of aluminum foil, each one no larger than a fingernail. Fold each one into the same size as the contact points on the Casio Exilim battery you want to jumpstart. Place them on that battery and press them onto the battery contact points. The aluminum foil pieces should protrude enough from the Exilim battery to touch the jumping battery. Then take a 9-volt battery, match the positive and negative terminals to the Exilim battery, and press the 9-volt onto the pieces of foil that protrude from the Exilim battery. Keep the batteries together for about 30 seconds; you may feel the Exilim battery become slightly warmer. Then put the Exilim battery into the charger; you should now see a steady red light with no blinking. This method worked for me.

Battery won't charge on casio ex-z77 exilim


It's a known Fault with the NP-20 battery don't order one and pay for it, ring or e-mail casio customer service they should send you one out for free!! When you receive the new one don't let it die, make sure and keep it partially charged at all time or the charger won't recognize it. Really casio should recall this battery but for some reason they insist on replacing faulty batteries with more faulty batteries!??!

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!

Battery not charging


I gave my wife also one of the Casio Exilim cameras. She doesn't take a lot of pictures. But so far the battery has not failed us. There might be a chance that your battery has died on you. I suggest you go to Casio and ask them to test the battery. I'm guessing it is the battery that has conked out. If it isn't then you need to have Casio check on your camera.

The NP20 battery that your camera requires is not taking a charge because of a "charge error". Please contact tech support and give them your address and they will replace the battery free of cost for you.

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.
