Well, I know that when it's charging the light is supposed to be red. Well, it is but it's also blinking and I don't think that it's supposed to be blinking. Anyway, it's not charging at all. Any help?

Hi,normaly the green light says that the battery is fully charged,so if its red it might be that its charging but not fully charged,but saying that if it dose not charge after some time then the red light can mean its not charging,just food for thought,all the best.
The red light on the front of the camcorder is supposed to blink when it is charging. That indicates that it is still charging, the light will stop blinking when it is fully charged. Other than that does it work fine?
Usually when the light on the charger either changes from red to green, or some chargers have a blinking light, when it stops blinking. I have seen chargers which also had a light which would turn off when the battery is charged.
As you know, solid red on your charger means that the battery is fully charged and the BLINKING red light means the battery is charging. Unless the light is blinking irradically everything is working the way it is supposed to. If the light is blinking irradically, the battery may just be too hot or too cold to charge ( like when you are driving many lags and your battery dies) and in this case simply wait 15 minutes to charge. If you get a fast blinking light still, the problem probably is with the battery.
It is supposed to stay on. If it is blinking then your battery has gone completely dead. You can force the charger to charge the battery by applying a voltage (AA battery w/ wires worked for me) across the charging terminals while inserting the battery. You'll have to take the charger apart for this.
the steady red light showing when in charger shows that
it is charging. the blinking red light when taken out of
charger or turned on and off means it is not fully charged.
leave it in charger till red light turns green.
There are a few things you can try. I had a fuji that would sometimes do this also. I found low power was one of the main issues. First try a new set of NiMH as alkalines just wont cut it specualy with these older cameras. Next check the memory card door. There is a little tiny switch on the memory door that will turn the unit off if the door is opend. Make sure the door is fully closed and maybe even hold it down tite while you try and use it.
