I was getting the green low battery alert. I thought the battery had worn out since I had used it for about two year and 1700 pictures. I bought a LENMAR replacement battery from Radioshak. After charging the battery for two hours the green charge light came on. However when I turned it on I continue to get the low battery alert. Thanks for any help

Re: Wont hold Charge
When you charge the battery what does it do? Does the red light flash or stay solid? If it stays solid while it's charging then you should be ok. Casio doesn't recommend using any other brand of battery with their cameras because we don't know how they will react. I would say try a regular Casio battery and see if that solves your problems. I know that means a little more money but a lot of times I have seen that solve the problem right away.

If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Usually a rapid blinking charge light is alerting you of a battery fault. Try taking the battery out, plugging your computer in, and turning it on (with the battery out). If it boots up, then your battery is to blame, call customer service right away and see about getting a new battery.
If both lights are flashing it means the battery is defective so it won't charge it. By defective it could mean the battery is just worn out or there may be a short in the battery. If the battery is under warranty you can get it replaced at a Makita Service Center, if not you have to buy a new battery.
try taking the battery out and while holding the power button in put the battery back in, if you still get nothing on the screen try doing the same , holding the power button down while you insert the charger.
If a tri coloured screen appears you will be able to reflash it, if it doesnt appear, then your battery is dead and it wont charge no matter how much you try, the MDA(or wizard) wont charge the battery, unless windows is running, i would recommend you buy a new battery, they are cheap enough
NOTE!!! If the battery is very low but you can get the multicoloured bootscreen, i would not advise flashing it as you have no idea of how much charge is in the battery, if the battery fails during flashing you wont have a phone anymore
