Re: does this mean the batteries are not strong enough
If nick's suggestion fails,
1.)remove the memory card
2.) connect the camera to your computer using the usb cable
3.) click start / computer
4.)your camera will show up there as a removable device
5.)right click it and dlick format
6.)select full format and click format
7.)try it now and let us know what happens

With most cameras, an amber, yellow, or red light indicates a battery that's currently charging. A blue or green light usually means the battery is charged. A blinking light sometimes indicates a charging error; other times, it indicates a battery that is still charging.or faulty battery.
have you tried,take the battery out and then put it back in?.
make sure the battery is seated.and its making a good contact.
When your flash light (I mean the part that gives the flash) or the capacitor that stores the power for the flash are defect. you won't see a flash. When a red light comes on, when actually the flash should fire, the most likely the capacitor is defect. The electronics sensed it could not reach the voltage needed to fire the flash.
It also could mean your battery can't deliver enough to charge the capacitor, but is that was the case the battery indicator should tell you.
This a situation the manual not even mentions. The red light on the bottom right of the camera is the memory access indicator. It should light green as I remember ok. And blink when it is writing to or reading from the memory. If it is red, it means : this is not ok.
This light is not a gadget. It should be taken serious. As long as it is burning, of flashing you are not supposed to switch of the camera or to remove the memory card. If you still open the memory compartment or switch of the camera or remove the battery, while the camera indicates I'n accessing the memory, serious damage can occur to the memory card.
You could lose all your pictures, because of it.
I would suggest, make sure your battery is charged correctly.
Format your memory card in a PC with FAT 32.
Check if al contacts in the camera are clean and shiny. (Battery and memory card contacts too)
The place the battery and the memory card in the camera and try switching it on again. If it should start, first do a format of the memory card in the camera before you starts taking pictures, of the camera has its own format and can make a folder.
You should be able to switch on the camera without a memory card inside. The camera will us the internal buffer, to let you take a picture in DEMO mode.
I hope the red light does not indicate your internal memory is corrupted. Because if nothing helps and the red light comes back, I think you should contact a Canon service centre.
HI. The red line is an indication of a defective battery. This defective cell cannot hold a charge strong enough to power your phone properly. The necessary actions are to replace the battery with a new one. This will correct the issue.
Ok, there are several things to consider. First of all, don't use standard alkaline batteries, the flash needs a lot of power and will drain those quickly. Use either lithium batteries (most powerful non-rechargeable) or invest in NiMH rechargeable batteries. Those would be your best choices for AA's. Now to your flashing red lights - on the Speedlight flash they fulfill 2 functions, one is as auxiliary ready lights (if used as wireless remote flash) but the blinking in your case points to their other function - it blinks 3 times to indicate possible under exposure of your photos at maximum output level. It's basically telling you that the flash was not strong enough to properly illuminate the scene you tried to shoot. That doesn't necessarily mean the batteries are going flat, but you could simply be out of range of the maximum flash power. Your flash has a guide number of 30 - that means at a zoom head position of 35mm (if your lens is at 35mm) and your ISO is 100, then the maximum range of the flash is 30m (approx. 68ft). If your subject is further away, you would get an underexposure warning (3 blinks of the ready lights). Hope that helps explain some things.
Sorry, but this indicates very strongly that your battery is completely dead. To confirm this simply wipe the terminal of your battery very well and hold the terminals of the battery to your tongue. If battery is working, you should fill a sensation in your tongue at the instance of contact, otherwise you just got the confirmation you need that your battery is dead. I mean dead, not low, but dead. Change the battery.
Hello, Here's a copy from the owners manual: ■ Charging LED Red LED is on = Being charged Red LED is blinking = Charging error Green LED is on = Carging is complete
● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error. - The battery is not properly inserted - The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.
Another charging error is when the batteries are so depleted, they won't charge up to 100% anymore = red light doesn't go out and remains on for too long, means get a new battery.
