    Mine is doing the same thing. The battery charger light is blinking red and the battery is not charging. Before this the light would stay red until the battery was charged then turn green.

    Flashing red continuously and not charging. Manual calls this charger error, but no remedial advice offered. Help. Camera obviously does not work

Before you get creative and directly plug your batter into an AC adapter, try something much easier first. I have the same problem with my Olympus 770SW batteries. As silly as it sounds, the charger will only work in a select few outlets in my house that I found by trial an error, actually pure frustration. I suggest, go around your house and plug the blinking charger in all the outlets and see if you find one that works. That sounds a lot less shocking than solution 1 and 2 now doesn't it? Good luck!

Yeah, get a cell phone charger and cut the wire to expose the copper underneath. Attach the red to the positive terminal of the battery and the black to the negative. Leave the middle Terminal 'T' exposed and plug the cell charger to the wall with the camera battery attached. Leave for 5 to 10 mins and then use the original charger that came with the camera and this should do it.

I modified nick_9035's solution a bit. I connected the camera battery first to a 9v battery, connecting it to the corresponding positive and negative terminals for one minute. even 2 AAA batteries would do. then I looked for a different outlet and plugged it in. worked like a charm! (note that when I changed outlets without doing this, the camera charger still kept on blinking)

NIKON MH26 BATTERY CHARGER BLINKING GREEN LIGHTS


A blinking green light means the charger is charging the battery. A steady green light (same LED) means that charging is complete. If the light never stops blinking and we assume that your charger is working correctly, you may have a defective battery. Rechargeable batteries do not last forever. After a few years, there ability to take and hold a charge declines. It may be time to buy a new battery.

The charger of Dsc-t5 is blinking


Hi,

The supplied charger normally lights while charging and turn off when the battery is fully charged. If the battery charger is blinking, then issue may be with the battery not getting charged. I suggest that you try using a different battery and check if the issue is with the battery.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Welcome to FixYa.

Red light indicates that the battery is charging. The light will goes off to inform you the charging is complete. Possible that the battery was alreay damaged since you left it charging overnight. Charging time is approximately 5 hours only.

I suggest that you have to replace your battery with a new one.

Feel free to send us your suggestion or comments if this solution was helpful.

I go to charge the battery and it looks like it charges for a while then the charger red light starts blinking. I put the battery back in the camera and the battery is still flat. Not sure what's wrong?...


The blinking light on the charger indicates that the battery needs to be replaced and will not charge. You can buy a replacement lithium battery online at sites like Amazon for less than $10.

Battery charging


Usually when the light on the charger either changes from red to green, or some chargers have a blinking light, when it stops blinking. I have seen chargers which also had a light which would turn off when the battery is charged.

Is the red light on the charger suppose to stay on or blinking for the battery to charge?


It is supposed to stay on. If it is blinking then your battery has gone completely dead. You can force the charger to charge the battery by applying a voltage (AA battery w/ wires worked for me) across the charging terminals while inserting the battery. You'll have to take the charger apart for this.

The blinking light indicates a charging error. Try connecting a 9 volt battery to your camera battery. Sometimes if the battery has lost all charge, the charger doesn't recognize it properly.

Battery charger(BC-11L)


Your Battery is faulty and requires replacment.

Depending on where you are and if it is still within the new warranty period or not depends on how long or how much it will cost to replace the battery. Call the Distributor for Casio in your State or Country and they may even send you one out Free Of Charge.
