    mine's doing the same thing. The flashing red light indicates the flash is charging and it won't charge and let me take a flash picture.

    Same problem! The Casio EX-S600, fresh from the box, is properly installed with a new battery and the instructions are followed perfectly. All you get from the charging cradle is a blinking red light (which never deviates from blinking red, no matter how long it's left plugged in), and the battery never receives a charge. I've been futzing with this for two days now, with no success. Definitely a design flaw in the charging system. The camera is cute to look at but I've not yet been able to even turn it on due to this lame charger. CAN ANYBODY OFFER A SIMPLE FIX, short of using a hammer at this point? Thanks!

It flashes green green green red red green. the red flashes are very quick. Also the lense is stuck out and will not go back in.


keep the camera on with full battery charge, hold the camera in your left hand and whack the base with your right hand, switch on and off the camera immediately, this will if the lens has got misaligned due to knock etc

When I'm trying to charge the battery for my Olympus u790sw camera the light on the charger flashes red... previously it was just a solid red when charging?


Not familiar with this model but on other camera chargers I have used it flashes red while charging then goes green when it's charged, it should tell you this in the manual about charging the battery

I have a Olympus FE-100 everything works except the flash. I have tried everything. The lightening bolt and red light flashes all the time. Change modes nothing happens. mHelp.


hi
your camera has flash circuit defective. the red light flashed mean it is trying to charge flash capacitor in its circuitry. it might has flash pcb defective or just fuse brown. you can bring to local repair shop and they would charge around $35 to 75 depend on what they really want to charge.
Thanks and best regard!

hi
blinking red light means camera is trying to charge flash circuitry. if you cancel flash mode, you can use taking picture. But if you want to repair, your local repair shop would charge around $35 to 75 depend on what they really want to charge.

I have a HP Photo Smart R707 with a fully charged new battery and the flash won't work. Keep getting charging flash. Any help on this?


The flash mode has to be set.

There are 5 flash modes:
  • auto - flash fires when needed
  • red-eye reduction - flash fires when needed, but there's a pre-flash to minimize red-eye
  • flash on - flash always fires
  • flash off - flash never fires
  • night - flash fires if necessary (and uses red-eye reduction) to illuminate foreground objects, but shutter stays open to record the background by ambient illumination

Battery flashing when charging why?


If the red light is flashing after inserting a NP-20 battery in the Casio Lithium Charger BC11-L, it means that the battery will not take a charge. Normally when putting the batterry in the charger, the light will be a constant red. After charging is complete, the red light will go out. Battery is then fully charged and ready for use.

My Casio Exilim EX-S880 wont turn on. Battery is dead but the camera wont charge on the charger. The red charger light is flashing when then camera is placed on it. This red light used to stay on...


I found this while trying to solve my exact same problem.. It worked for me after about 7 times. Some other people on the site said it worked for them after 20 times. Good luck!

My NP 20 gave me the flashing red light of death and I got Casio to replace it. Then I had the same problem with my second NP 20 so I dug around for a way to fix it and I found the following advice on a site called FixYa. It worked instantly and I didn't risk ruining my battery.

I had the same problem as this.
what i did was...
i kept putting the battery on the charger then took it off as soon as the red light came on.
i did this about 6 times.
doing this puts a bit of charge in the battery each time before the charger starts to flash.
after the battery as got enough charge in it it can start to charge.
hope this helps.

When I put my battery in the charger is flashes red.


Hi Olivia. Thanks for your reply.

When the charger flashes red, it means that either:
A) you battery terminals are dirty, or, it's not put in the charger properly.
B) You have a bad battery.
I'm going to assume that you're putting it in the charger correctly because you have had it a long time and know how to properly insert it. The battery terminals being dirty are highly unlikely.

So this is my opinion:
The fact that your battery is a year and half old tells me right away that your battery is a gonner. Your charger flashing red tells me that it can no longer flow current to the battery. I'm sorry, but you need to purchase a new battery. Good news is that they aren't too expensive, approximately $20 usd, and you can find one on the web very easily.

Make sure you get the right battery. Whichever one you buy, make sure it fits your camera. I do know that it's a 3.7 volt np-20 battery. You want to purchase one with a high mAh number. The mAh number relates to how long it will run your camera between chargings. The higher the number, the longer it should run your camera.
Also, note, in the future, don't charge your battery for longer than 2 hours at a time. It should only take 90 minutes to fully charge it. If you charge it longer than that, it will get too hot and dramatically shorten the life of your battery!

Sorry I didn't have good news, but I wanted to make sure you were properly armed with knowledge.


Thanks for coming to FixYa. Come back if you have any other questions, and remember to rate my solution a fixya.

Battery charger flashing red light


Clean contact points of both battery and charger with q-tips dipped in rubbing alcohol. This solved my problem with blinking lights and not charging of the batteries.
