    I got mine for X-mas 07 and used it only a couple of times. Charged the battery the first time no problem but now I can't get it to charge. Fashes red for hours and no luck. So dead it won't even allow me to turn the camera on...

    Same problem here. I only left the camera unused for less than 2 months. The batter seemed dead. Wonder what the batter life is???

    I have the exact same problem with the camera no longer charging. When I put it on the charger, the red light continually blinks, but will not charge regardless of how long it is on the charger, and I have two of these cameras. My boyfriend and I both own them, one the ex-z77 and the other a more expensive version and for the last week, we can't get either to charge on any of our chargers. My boyfriend found his receipt and took it to Best Buy to be fixed. Best Buy sent it in, and I have no idea what the outcome will be.

    I have the exact same problem. I got this camera for Christmas of '07 and I use it often. I only charge it when the battery gets very low. After not using it for a frew weeks, I put it on the charger and the light just kept on flashing. I even kept it on the charger for awhile, but it didn't make a difference. Is it the battery or the charger? Should I get a new battery?

  • aurorab05 Nov 23, 2008

    I have the same exact problem! Guess I'll try a new battery. Any word on the Casio return at Best Buy?

    Yes - same problem - red light just flashes and doesn't charge.

Jpierre's solution (in another thread) was right on the money. Touch the positive (+)end of the 9v battery to the positive (+) end of the camera battery.Leave them touching for a few seconds (10 seconds should be more thansufficient). Seems these lithium-ion batteries are subject to a'digital memory.' Subjecting it to a volt surge almost three timeshigher seems to clear it.

In short, it works like a charm.

Two quick suggestions first is the battery chamber contacts clean make sure they are clean. Are you using a battery pack with rechargeable AA's ? if so check the battery orientation it only takes one out of place. If you are using the rechargeable battery I know you said the batteries were fine but make sure the power is up on the rechargeable. I've had it where I put a battery on charge knowing it was pretty well dead came back 5 minutes later and the light was green, took the battery of the charger unplugged the charger plugged the charger back in and put the battery back on the charge. It then completed its true cycle.

Have you recharged the battery many times since you owned it? Did you leave it alone for an extended time and it completely discharged and died? Rechargeable batteries sometimes only last 3 years.

Battery Dont Charge

I had the same problem. I had a 1 year warranty, so I called 1800-435-7732 and they sent me a new battery within 5 days. I just received it today and it works perfectly. Hope this helps you! =]

Battery Charger Olympus li-40c

I had this problem a few weeks ago (i.e. flashing red LED). All I did was remove the power plug from the charging unit, turned it around 180 degrees, then plugged it back into the charging unit. Red LED came on steady & the battery (which is the one that came with the camera) recharged as normal.

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)

My jazz179 wont charge and it wont come on its so dead....should i return it?

Well, either the battery is out of place, or the battery has been recharged inproperly, no battery life left, or it has been charged to long. Try getting a new battery? Maybe that will help.

Well.. I have to plug in the charger that came with the dv-179. If I use my Phone (motorola usb) charger, or a USB cable (into the computer or a hub), all it does is light up the back red light (and not the front 'self timer' led) and does not charge the camera. So remember, if the back led lights up, you've got the wrong charger!

Battery Charging light doesn't flash and battery doesn't charge

I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.
