Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z750 Digital Camera
The charger just flashes red on and off and when the battery is put into the camera it is dead. ??
This problem is known. There is a way to fix it.
The fact that it blinks on and off means that the battery is completely out of energy. Thus, the charger doesn't "recognize" the battery.
To fix the problem, you need to give some energy to the battery. What I usually do is that I use a 9V battery (or any other source of power) and I link + and - of both the Casio battery and the 9V battery. You can use a paperclip as a link (you will use 2 paperclips, 1 between minuses and 1 between pluses).
Do that for 2 minutes and then charge your battery as usual. It should work !
Sorry if my English isn't accurate. I'm French.

My charger flashes red and the battery doesn't charge. I tried freezing it, it didn't do the trick. I then tried jump starting it with a 9v battery - to - and + to + for 20 seconds then 30 seconds that didn't work. However, I held the connection for about 45 secounds and that did the trick. The battery is now charging. I also called and they will be sending a replacement.

Same problem here, blinking while charging. Called Casio at the 800 # listed in a previous posting here, and they are sending me a new battery.

Had same problem, called the 800 number listed (800-435-7732). They said this is a common problem, and will send a new battery free of charge.

Your camera must be less than one year old to get the replacement battery. Otherwise, they recommend you purchase a new one, and when you don't plan to use the camera frequently, they recommend that you remove it from the camera a store it separately.

They sent me a new battery last month. It was very easy. However, the new battery now won't charge either (after one use). Very frustrating.
Not sure what to do next....

I bought an EX-Z75 and had the same problem. I simply called Casio, and they have sent me a replacement battery free of charge. I don't know as of now if this will correct the problem, but they said it was fairly common for the batteries to go bad while sitting on the shelf.

when the battery totaly drain you encounter blinking error. it mean its not charging. You need to charge the battery using fash charger... or use universsal charger for cellphone. for 5
mins. then charge to your regular casio charger it will work

Every rechargeable battery deteriorates thoughout it's life of usage. may be it's time to buy a new one. Sometimes the terminals on the battery get in touch with metal things and short the circuits within.
