    Mine does too. What does this mean?

  • RojoC May 12, 2008

    I ahve hte same problem it is really irritating and I am having difficulty charging the battery.

  • ComputerNut May 13, 2008

    Having the same problem. When the camera is first put on the
    docking station it will charge for about 10 seconds then go to flashing red. Tried
    to clean the battery terminals and reseat the battery. Didn't work. I accidentally
    dropped it from about a foot onto padded carpet. Put it on the docking station
    and it stayed in charging mode. Next day the same problem. Same drop and it
    works. Assuming it may be a battery seating problem. Don’t recommend the
    solution that worked for me.

    I just experienced this problem for the first time today, too. I got this camera in December of 2005. I haven't had any problems until now...maybe time for a new battery??

    me too

  • Becca Rouse Aug 03, 2008

    This happens to me too. I also have banged it around and then got it to work, although that drives my husband crazy when I do it. I don't want to start buying batteries and cables if it's not going to fix the problem. But I can't figure out what's causing it since most of the time it works! Right now it has been doing it for the last two day sno matter what I try. Ugh!

  • rpgrml Sep 02, 2008

    I got mine Dec 2005 too! I never had a problem until now. It is blinking red but I can still transfer my pictures to the computer. Is there another way to charge the battery?

    When I put the Kodak Z760 on the dock station the lights go green. Then in about 10 seconds the lights flash red, why?

I had the same problem. I did need to take the clear plastic insert off but then I had to put a rubber band around the dock and camera (more on the left of the camera and dock) to hold it evenly on there since the camera was leaning on the right and wasn't charging for me. Now it charges as soon as I put it on there with the rubber band with no blinking red light anymore! Hope this helps!

Check the plastic insert that fits onto the top of the docking station. Take it all the way off, and then carefully reseat it onto the station. Make sure this plastic insert is fully seated onto the docking station. If it's loose at all, you are likely to have the red-blinking light which indicates the camera is not charging properly.  Replace the cameras (gently, but firmly) onto the docking station, and check back in a couple of minutes to make sure the red light has not come back.

Try using some electronic cleaner on the connections. I had the same problem and it took care of it DO NOT USE WD40 as it is an oil based solvent. Only use electronic cleaner. You can get it at most department stores. An auto parts store is an excellent place to find it also. My belief is that like any electrical connection they become corroded over time and make a poor connection. By cleaning the connections you re-establish a good solid connection between the camera and docking station.

I am having the same problem. I don't think it is a XP-SP3 problem, I haven't installed it yet. I checked my connections and they seemed fine. I did notice that my camera was not seated firmly to the docking station, so I removed it then placed on the station again and held it firmly in place. When I removed my hand I noticed that the camera unseated itself slightly and the red light was blinking again. I also noticed that the cord holding the lens cap seemed to be interfering with the camera being seated, so I moved that around too. So far, so good, the camera is charging!

Posted on Sep 05, 2008

Same here - is it an XP-SP3 thing?

I think the PC is disconnecting the USB from the computer and then it doesnt't charge. But that doesn't make sense since the dock is powered.

SOURCE: camera wont charge

Hi, if you are using the KLIC-5000 battery try to clean the metal contacts on the battery. Try also to remove the battery of your camera dock your camera on the docking station then turn on the camera, if the camera will not turn on it means the charging mechanism of the dock is defective. Now if the camera turns on it means the battery is defective that is why you can charged it.

SOURCE: Charging Camera

I would test the docking station first. Do you have a way of charging the camera without using the docking station?

Thought I'd ask because some can and some can't.

The red light on my mouse keeps on blinking


Here's a guide;
What do the battery lights mean on my mouse? Some keyboard and mouse models feature a battery light that shows the current status of the batteries. The following table describes the different lights and states.
Light
Device Model Status Single long green blink Rechargeable Batteries are good. This occurs when batteries are first installed or every time that the device is turned on. Slow green blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and is charging properly. Steady green Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and does not need additional charging. Steady green Presenter Mouse (Japanese version) Laser pointer is on. Red/green blink Wireless Device is discoverable (trying to connect to the transceiver). Slow red blink Non-rechargeable Batteries are low and need to be replaced. Slow red blink Rechargeable Batteries are low and need recharging. Fast red blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station, but there is a charging error.
Reasons for errors: The wrong type of battery is installed; the battery or batteries are missing; or the battery connection is bad.
Solutions: Make sure that the correct battery or batteries are installed, and are installed correctly. If necessary, remove the batteries, wipe them with a clean cloth, and reinsert them. Steady red Presenter Mouse (Standard version) Laser pointer is on.

What does flashing red light on wii dock charging station mean??


Make sure that when charging the battery pack it must be attached to a wii-mote otherwise this may cause a flashing red light. If the battery pack is attached to the wii-mote and you still have a flashing red light this may indicate that there could a problem with the battery pack itself.

Phone refuses to turn on. red light keeps blinking and can't connect to my pc


  1. Verify that BlackBerry Device Software is installed on the computer.
  2. If the BlackBerry smartphone is connected to a laptop computer using a docking station, disconnect the docking station from the laptop computer and connect the BlackBerry smartphone directly to the laptop computer.
  3. If a third-party application uses the same communications port as the BlackBerry Desktop Software, close the third-party application.
  4. If you use a USB adapter to connect the BlackBerry smartphone to a serial port, temporarily connect the BlackBerry smartphone to a USB port.
  5. In the BlackBerry Desktop Manager, double-click Application Loader.
  6. Follow the Application Loader tool prompts to install the BlackBerry Device Software.

Red qoutation light keeps blinking/a440 print dock


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Roomba Docking Station


Probably not, unless you just have to have the docking station. My roomba always had trouble mating with my docking station so I never used it. I just plugged it directly in to will using the AC adapter.

There are 4 reasons why your unit is behaving this way:
1. Charger is the problem.
2. The docking station is the broken.
3. The battery is broken or not accepting charge.
4. The actual unit is the problem.
It is very hard to tell which one is causing this to happen.
Let us do some troubleshooting first:
1. Plug your charger in an A/C outlet and make sure the red power light (left) is lit, otherwise the charger or the docking station is broken.
2. You can test the charger with a multimeter. Unplug the charger from the docking station and measure the voltage across the outside and inside, it should register more than 5 volts DC. If there is a 5Volt DC the docking station is the problem otherwise the charger is broken.
3. If the red power light is lit and the status light (right) is lit too, your docking station is broken.
4. If the red power light is lit, dock the unit into the charger, the status light (left) should turn red when your battery is accepting charge or turn blue when your battery is fully charged.
5. If the status light will not lit at all (while the red power light is on), tap the screen while the unit is docked on the charger. If the unit will become alive, you need a new battery otherwise you need a new unit.

12 hours is very long time to charge, the status light should turn to blue in less than 2 hours especially for a new battery.
