Question about Casio Exilim EX-S600 Digital Camera
Same thing happened to me and I've found 2 solutions:
1. Casio has recognized that this is a problem with the battery. If you call the support line and tell them the problem, they will send you a new battery for free. All you need is the serial code on the bottom of your battery.
2. This sounds crazy but it worked for me. Take a 9v battery and touch the connectors to the connectors of your np 20 casio battery. make sure to touch + to + and - to -. hold it there for 30 -60 seconds. put the np 20 back in the camera and put the camera on the dock. this will give it just enough charge that the charger will recognize the battery and start charging your camera to full.

Here is how you fix the problem (without using a 9V battery!).
The battery doesn't charge because it's been fully discharged.
What you do is you put the camera into the cradle. Now you see that the Red LED comes on solid for a while. It's charging for a few seconds. Then it starts blinking. When it does that - TAKE THE CAMERA OUT of the cradle.
Now put the camera back and repeat. Do this six or eight times. Each time what's happening is that the battery is getting a tiny bit of charge. After 8 times the LED will come on red and stay solid red.
Bingo, no problem!

The 9v battery worked GREAT! Who would have ever thought? $300 for a camera, and .99 cents to make it work!

Valence, you ROCK!!! That 9v battery fix FIXED MY PROBLEM!!! I'm still calling Casio for a new battery- I don't want to always have to keep a 9volt on-hand (plus, I paid enough for my camera it should darn-well work). But THANKS for that fix!!

I was told by one of the techs to put the battery in a freezer for a couple of ours to reset it worked for me hope this helps

I called Casio as well. My camera was under warranty so they are sending me a new battery too!
