I have had the camera since christmas. The battery wont charge and it is only the second time I charge it....I was told it was the charger and bought a new one...but I continue to have the same problem.
charger lamp turns on and flashes for a short period of time and then stays red and never turns green.

Remove the battery and charge it again. If you only can make just a few shots with the battery and it stops again, think of buying a new battery. Special when you have not used the camera for a long time, the second and third charge can be better. If not the battery is on its end of life.
Are you sure the battery is correctly charged? Most USB connectors on most PC's don't deliver enough power to charge the battery. Try to charge the battery with the power cord till the green LED is on. If you'r sure the battery is fully charged and the same happens again, remove the battery for a small time and put it in again.
Try this: with camera power switch in the "ON" position, remove the battery. Then press and hold the shutter release for approximately 30 seconds. Turn power switch "OFF", reinsert battery and turn back on.
Look on bottom of camera for a very small Hardware reset switch. If one ther, turn camera on and press for about 2 seconds.
my finepixz3 got wet. but after a few days it worked! but when the battery ran out it wont charge. is it the battery? it turned on a few sec when its in the cradle but it wont last after a few seconds it would turned off. is it the battery or the camera itself?
You do need to charge the camera by putting it in the camera dock and the ac cord should be plugged into the camera dock. It is possible that the battery has gone bad so you could try getting a new battery. If neither of these options work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!
You can take you battery to a place called batteries plus they can check out to see if it is you battery if the battery is good than you have a bad charger. you can get one cheap off of ebay. They are 45.00 plus at batteries plus lots cheaper off ebay and some time you can get a charger and battery combo for half the cost of the charger from them. hope this helps.
