Question about Cameras
Seems like the charger that charges the batteries has some problem too. Everything was perfect in the first place and now the camera won't turn on with these batteries nor with other. And the charger has to charge the batteries and then when they're charged, two green lights start blinking. But not the charger just shuts down after a while and I have to unplug it and plug it again to start charging. And the batteries seems never charged despite I'm "charging" them 3 days long by now.
Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work. Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In most cases, alkaline batteries have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.
If nothing helps, perhaps you should try a new set of batteries and or another charger.
To rule out the camera is defect, put in new alkaline batteries. If the camera starts up normal, you can remove them end concentrate on the batteries and charger.

SOURCE: battery will not hold a charge.
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.

I looked up this question with the same problem and while the battery was placed in with the right side in, the three metal tabs weren't on the right side with the three metal chargers- so I had to spin it around the other way...i hope i'm explaining this right...now it's charging! I am so glad. This camera is excellent.
