My camera won't turn on

All of a sudden my camera doesn't turn on, I tried charging it but the charger isn't working, the red light keeps flashing. When I connet the USB cable to the charger and computer, it lets me review my pictures and shows that I have a full battery but once I take it off the charger, I can't turn my camera on again. I just bought the camera 6 months ago so it's fairly new.

    My camera doesn't turn on, I tried charging it but the charger isn't working (or so said the man at the store), the red light wont even turn on. When I connet the USB cable to the charger and computer, I can review my pictures and it shows that I have a full battery; but once I take it off the computer, it wont turn on again. I just bought a new battery and charger and still the red light will not turn on; but I put the new battery in my sister's camera (same make and model) with the new charger, and the red light turns on and it charges.

    Same problem, same camera......When it is on the charger the charging light comes on tho. If i press the photo button it will come on and show my pic and it says my batterie is full. When i pug it to my computer with usb and charger I can look at my pics and whater just like normal. But still when not on charger it will not turn on and the on/off button does work when on the charger. It wont turn on and i have had this cam for like 7 or 8 months. Same problems, same camera....?just sayin?

    my problem is the same as above. the camera can review pictures while on the dock, shows full battery, and the red light blinks, but it will not turn on when off the dock. mine is also about 6 months old.

  • juruotsa Jun 06, 2008

    My camera is doing the same thing. It won't turn on but it will review pictures when on the charger and also the battery is full. Once i take it off the charger it shuts off and won't turn back on. Unfortunately I really needed to use my camera this wkend but I guess that's not happening!! Sounds like this camera has a glitch of some sort and it's a huge inconvenience!!:(

    Brand new, I haven't even used it yet and I have this problem. Red LED starts blinking, when in the charger. I can turn the viewer on, while in the charger and appears to have full battery charge. If I remove it from charger it sits there dead. Is it a bad battery pack? Or is the entire camera toast?

  • tomjohnston1 Jul 17, 2008

    When on the charger the Red Led flashes. The camera won't turn on. It displays photos etc when docked to the PC but when not docked the camera is completely dead.

I had the same I called Casio at 1-800-435-7732 and its from the battery itself. They just sent me a new battery because it was a known issue. It took about 4 days to get the new battery and it was FREE.

Hey Audrey83,
What I think is going on is the battery terminals in the battery compartment need to be cleaned. I would use some alcohol and cotton swabs, and if this doesn't work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Im trying to charge my camera via computer. . there is a red light on the charge cable connector and a green light on the camera which i have switched "on". it still says "low battery even...

Hi, I'd suggest using a wall charger as they're able to provide more power to charge then a computers USB port. Often with camera's the USB port doesn't supply enough power so the camera doesn't charge at all.

Screen black. Power light on unit flashes red slowly. Power light on switching adaptor power supply flashed green slowly.

Sounds like the battery might be low which would cause the red flashing light and dark screen. Let it charge for a little bit then try turning it on again. If it still does it with the power supply plugged in, make sure there isn't a lens cover on it, and switch modes or try getting into the menu to see if you can get anything to come up. If that still doesn't work then it sounds like there might be a problem with the camera.

The camera won.t turn on the battery charger blinks red when trying to charge both of my battreies

I had the same problem with flashing red light on my charging dock (within 10 sec after 2nd green light came on). I did fix it. There is a rust brown securing tab that holds the battery in place. Mine must have a broken spring..... So, I put the battery into my camera, pushed securing tab over the battery and then wedged a toothpick tip to keep battery tab in place. Once back on the charger, I had no more flashing red light. The battery is charging correctly. The problem was that the battery was not held down into place correctly. I now just have to unwedge the toothpick tip to remove the battery...but not really an issue at all as I keep the battery in there all the time. Very easy fix!!!
Others suggested to reseat the plastic dock. But mine was secure. Somewhere there is not a good battery connection that is causing the red flashing light. I am thankful to figure it out. Hope this helps you.

sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)

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.

Red light flashes and LCD turns off and on

A quick test would be to purchase a set of Duracell Ultra Digital batteries and try them. They won?t last for very long; however, if they make the red light go away then you problem is either the batteries you are using or the charger. More often than not its going to be the batteries so we?ll start there: Check your batteries, you should be using Nickel metal hydride (Ni-ME) that are rated at 1450 (I use 2500) mAh or better. If the batteries are more than one year and you?ve used them a lot then its likely the batteries just aren?t holding a charge anymore. Purchase a new set or borrow a working set from a friend. Charge them in your charger and try in your camera, if the red LED goes away use the batteries till they need charging again. Charge them in your charger and if the red LED stays off then the batteries were the problem. If the red LED returns then try charging your batteries in someone else?s working NiME charger. Put them in your camera and if the red LED goes away then your charger is the fault.
