    I have the same problem with the red charger light flashing. I have the EX-S600 camera with the NP20 battery.  I have removed the battery and placed it back carefully. It still is flashing. The camera does nothing as if the battery is completely dead. 


    How can I be sure that it is the battery that is the problem?

This happened to me once before i had to put the battery in my freezer for about 45 minutes then try to charge, it worked, with some liion batts they develop memories and if remain uncharged for an extended period refuse to charge

I had the same problem. It IS the battery - if the red light flashes, it is telling you that it won't charge. If the red light stays solid red, it is charging. Green - charging complete.

What model of camera? You will probably need to purchase different battery.

SOURCE: battery charger

I just bought this camera as an "Open Box" special a few days ago. It would not charged (flashing red),I tried some of the steps on here. I tried replugging the unit in and out many times. This did nothing.
I took an LG phone charger and plugged it directly into the camera for a few seconds and plugged it in the charger and it worked!
I had to push the charger in kinda hard to the camera and it came on and said low battery and I held it for a few more seconds.
Thanks!

Phone Casio Support and they will give you a free battery. I did and I got one in the mail a week later.

On their site for Canada:

"Blinking red light when charging battery indicates an issue with the battery - Please contact 1-800-435-7732."

SOURCE: My Casio Exilim EX-S880 wont turn on. Battery is

I found this while trying to solve my exact same problem.. It worked for me after about 7 times. Some other people on the site said it worked for them after 20 times. Good luck!

My NP 20 gave me the flashing red light of death and I got Casio to replace it. Then I had the same problem with my second NP 20 so I dug around for a way to fix it and I found the following advice on a site called FixYa. It worked instantly and I didn't risk ruining my battery.

I had the same problem as this.
what i did was...
i kept putting the battery on the charger then took it off as soon as the red light came on.
i did this about 6 times.
doing this puts a bit of charge in the battery each time before the charger starts to flash.
after the battery as got enough charge in it it can start to charge.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: battery won't charge on casio ex-z77 exilim

I did the same thing as Hartwe1l, although I didn't tilt it up so high. I just held the battery tight against the contacts and lifted it a little bit, got a steady red light, held it there for a minute, and presto...continuous red light. I'm assuming it's charging...so far, so good! Thanks hartwe1l.

My casio exilim ex-z75 is not working well, I think it may be a problem with the battery. the camera actually doesnt turn on. When I charge the battery, the charger light flashes red. I don't know what...


This often means that the battery is bad. It's a good idea to only charge the battery as long as is necessary, and to then remove the battery shortly after it is finished charging. This helps prevent from an over-charge on the battery which can damage the battery life.

When the battery is in the charger it flashes red & won't charge, have no idea what problem is! Have casio exilim lithium ion NP-20 battery & a casio exilim 7.2 megapixels camera. Can't turn camera...


I called casio and they told me that when you have a red flashing light on the charger it means the lithium battery is no longer any good. They offered to send me one free of charge. It's been several weeks and I have yet to receive it.

Casio Exilim battery won't charge


Casio batteries have a issue and are very weak you should not let it get below 5% when it is this low the camera will come on say battery is low and turn off. if it remains this or lower the battery can go out the good thing is you can get them really cheap off ebay.

Battery will not hold a charge.


Casio says:

Red blinking light = defective battery

No flashing light = possible defective charger.

What you can do is send all your stuff into casio and they will test everything for you and see what they could replace for you.
