When I put my battery in the charger is flashes red.
Hi Olivia. Thanks for your reply.
When the charger flashes red, it means that either:
A) you battery terminals are dirty, or, it's not put in the charger properly.
B) You have a bad battery.
I'm going to assume that you're putting it in the charger correctly because you have had it a long time and know how to properly insert it. The battery terminals being dirty are highly unlikely.
So this is my opinion:
The fact that your battery is a year and half old tells me right away that your battery is a gonner. Your charger flashing red tells me that it can no longer flow current to the battery. I'm sorry, but you need to purchase a new battery. Good news is that they aren't too expensive, approximately $20 usd, and you can find one on the web very easily.
Make sure you get the right battery. Whichever one you buy, make sure it fits your camera. I do know that it's a 3.7 volt np-20 battery. You want to purchase one with a high mAh number. The mAh number relates to how long it will run your camera between chargings. The higher the number, the longer it should run your camera.
Also, note, in the future, don't charge your battery for longer than 2 hours at a time. It should only take 90 minutes to fully charge it. If you charge it longer than that, it will get too hot and dramatically shorten the life of your battery!
Sorry I didn't have good news, but I wanted to make sure you were properly armed with knowledge.
