Question about Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z700 Digital Camera

Lithium ion battery won't charge

I took the battery out of the box and plugged it into the outlet with the adaptor just like the instructions told me to. The problem is that it just continues to blink red and it won't charge. I don't think the battery could be old because it is a brand new camera just out of the box.

  • Anonymous Dec 03, 2007

    I was told that they are having a lot of problems with these batteries. They are supposed to send me a new battery.

    Have the same problem Called Casio Technical Support. Sending me a new battery. If this is a known problem, whay do they continue to ship camera with this battery and what guarentee do I have the new battery won't give me the same problem?

  • asonkar Mar 15, 2008

    Yes, I have the same problem. My camera is brand new and the battery charged only once, after that it never did. The charger just blinks red. This is really absurd.



    If this is a know problem, then Casio should practively do something on this. One more thing I noticed that the camera is rightly made in Japan while the battery is from China. They seem to be procuring batteries from China which is known for bad quality products or use-throw kind of products.



    I had really loved the Casio brand but now with such poor quality accessories I will never think of buying Japanese and obviously Chinese ones..



    Please do not buy this product as I am really pissed with such experience now!!

  • cms123 May 21, 2008

    I have the same exact problem with my camera. I've been trying everything thinking that I did not put the battery in the charger correctly or something similar, but all it does is continually blink red. Where can you contact Casio? I

Known issue, battery needs to be 'shocked" back to life. Here's the fix:

"Hi,I just found a soultion on another website and it appears to have worked for me.Apparently the battery loses it memory when fully discharged,to fix this take a 9v battery and place the terminals + to + and - to - with the camera battery for 30 seconds or so then put the battery back in the camera and charge as normal.I just did this and it seems to be charging and the red light is solid.hope this helps."

I just tried the nine volt "jump start" and it worked !!!!!

Connected a nine volt wire plus to plus, and minus to minus, and let it sit for one minute. Then took it off, put it in the charger, and jiggled the charger a little. the flashing light suddenly went solid red, and now it is charging up.

Thank you thank you to the guy who found that.

Casio Camera, model EX-Z77
Battery: NP-20
Charger model: BC-11L

Sympton: When I had put the battery in the charger, it only flashes red on and off. Blinking, but not staying steady.

Solution: Took the battery out of the charger. Took a 9 Volt battery. Connected a wire PLUS TO PLUS, and another wire MINUS TO MINUS, and let it stand for 60 seconds.
Put battery back into charger, and then plugged it in.

It then worked.

Also note: This battery had been fully drained, and then left for a month before I tried to charge it. It was so flat, that the charger could not sense it properly, and would not turn on. A little juice jump from a nine-volt and now the charger can sense it in the charger, and it's charging up the right way now.

Solutions 2,6, and 10 (the 9 V battery solution) worked for mine! I didn't have any wires or pliers lying around, so I fashioned two paperclips, one around each terminal on the battery, and just held it in place for about 30-40 seconds. Seems to be charging with a STEADY red light on the charger unit.

YES! Add me to the list of people that the 9V battery fix has worked for. It took over a minute for it to get enough charge to work, and I had to use a paperclip to assist making contact with one of the plates. (I also called Casio customer service to try to get a new battery and, while she acknowledged this was a problem with those batteries, said since it was over a year since my purchase, I would have to buy a new battery.)

Call Casio's tech support number: 800-435-7732. I had the same problem: red blinking light on charger, no green light, dead camera. They said they'd had problems with some of their lithium batteries and offered to immediately mail a replacement. Only needed the i.d. numbers on the back of the camera (didn't have the receipt in hand).

I too called about the battery not charging and told them my camera was about 2 years old. They almost begged me to say it was less than a year so they could replace it. I told them it might be and they said "let's go with that" and sent me a new battery. It wasn't registered before that so if you registered already they will have a record of the camera's serial number and date of purchase.

I have no patience to call any tech support call center being in IT, but Icalled Casio Tech Support at 1-800-435-7732, and within less than 3 minutes, they were FedEx-ing a new battery out to me. Very simple process. And it was suprising to hear someone with native English on the other side of the phone. Just tell them you got the camera within a year. Beyond that the won't replace it. I also fixed the old battery using the 9-volt battery trick. Now I have 2 batteries.

Same problem.. I've had my camera for a couple years; I'm living in Mexico for a semester, wasn't sure what to do... found the battery thing... I couldn't find wire here in this Mexican house and so I unraveled two wire hangers, and hooked em up + to + and - to - and held it for about a minute... plugged it in and SOLID RED. Immediately thanked Heavenly Father and all you smart people out there. THANKS.

I have called for 3 of the cameras my family has. They say it is a known issue and the batteries each made it to my house within about 5 days. It was great service, but annoying that it was happening to every camera.

I had the same problem too. My camera was working fine for almost a year and then the battery wouldn't hold a charge. The light kept blinking red in the charger and would never turn green. I called Casio Tech Support at 1-800-435-7732, and within less than 5 minutes, they were Fed Exing a new battery out to me. Very simple process. Since it is a common problem, they are quick to fix the situation. Of course, that is until this new battery dies. ; )

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

I have the powershot SD3500IS abd it says i need to change the battery pack what is that and how can i fix it also if i dont have a charer can i charge it with the usb ?


"Change batter pack" means your battery is dead. The camera should have come with a charger in the bok that can plug into the outlet in your wall. It uses a lithium ion battery, so you can't use a regular AA batter charger, for instance. You cannot charge the battery via the usb into your computer.

Camera will not come on. Previously, I have not used the camera for two years. I took it out and charged several batteries. It shows that they are fully charged. But, the camera would not come on...


Try to use it firstly with AC adaptor(VSK0617) to understand that if it is working. The original battery pack (CGA-S302A) irreversibly loses approximately 20% capacity per year. So it is normal I think. Also, high charge levels and elevated temperatures (whether resulting from charging or being ambient) hasten permanent capacity loss for lithium-ion batteries. Think that shelf life+usage period+two years and other bad parameters decreases its life near 0.
As I said before,
Try to use the camera with its AC adaptor then change the batteries with new ones.
Hope that it will work.
This is the link of camera manual. May be you need to read the page 12.
