Question about Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera
From another thread, posted by theslug. This worked great for my camera.
"Hi,I just found a soultion on another website and it appears to have worked for me.Apparently the battery loses it memory when fully discharged,to fix this take a 9v battery and place the terminals + to + and - to - with the camera battery for 30 seconds or so then put the battery back in the camera and charge as normal.I just did this and it seems to be charging and the red light is solid.hope this helps."

Just to reiterate the above point. I phoned Casio on 02084527253, selected option 2 to speak to an operator (rather than option 1 which just tells you to send the camera Casio) and explained the problem. The bloke I spoke to said they would send me a new battery straight away - no payment or postage needed from myself. Something tells me that Casio recognise that their batteries are faulty and just wait for people to call them rather than do a complete product recall.

Boys and girls, since this camera is now old I thought I'd pipe in - I had two batteries for this camera, and both of them were giving me the flashing red light problem. I did the above in solution #1 (only held contact for 60 seconds each) and both are accepting charges now. In fact, the first battery is charged. I tested the camera operation and it's all cool. Second battery is charging now. One little thing though - the contacts on the 9-volt battery don't exactly match the distance on those of the Casio battery - very close though. To be sure I connected alligator clips with wire to the 9-volt then wire to the Casio contacts for 60 seconds. Nice fix!!!

I had the same problem, so i called the casio tech support number. (i dont have it anymore, but you can look the number up) and they said it is a very common problem and they are sending me a brand new battery completely free no shipping or anything.

Your battery maybe drained, you can try to leave it in charger for hours( it will take long for a drained batt to start charging) blinking led may indicate that charger is trying to supply current to batt, anyways I strongly suggest you to buy a new one
