Question about Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera
I just had this happen to mine too. I think this is a design problem with the camera/battery combination. My camera has a lithium polymer battery (most do now). Lithium polymer (lipo for short) batteries should never be allowed to discharge below about 2.75 volts. Letting the battery discharge below that level will actually permanently damage the cell.
In order to keep that from happening, the device that uses the lipo should have protection circuitry that prevents the battery from falling below that level. I think this is where the Casio camera may have an issue. I found that if I left the battery in the camera for about a month, I was not able to charge it! Lipo battery chargers are more sophisticated than typical charges because lipos need to be charged in a specific way. The first thing a lipo charger does is to check the voltage of the battery you insert into it. If it is below a critical minimum voltage, it will not even charge the battery (Casio charger blinks red continuously).
There are a couple tricks you can do to get the battery to charge, but that's not the important thing here. I think Casio needs to address this issue with our cameras. It would be nice if we could just update the firmware in the camera, but I'm not sure we can do that. I intend to contact Casio to see if they know anything. Based on how many posts like this I have read, I bet they do.
Good luck to use all.
