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.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Battery just changed, but then went dead. Battery Tender blinks red.


Its possible the charger is telling you the battery is too dead for the charger to work. A safety feature to keep from burning up the charger.
I'm not aware of any fuses between the jumping post and the battery. You may have a short in the car that is draining power.

Battery not charging. Orange and Green light on charger. 18V Plus one system


The air holes on the bottom of the batteries are there for the battery to vent. Downside is, these vents can also allow moisture to get in and prevent contacts from letting the battery charge and causing the "defective" display on the charger.

I work on pool and spa equipment and I had dropped my batteries in a small puddle of water where I was working, both went dead immediately and both showed "defective" on the charger even after drying them out for a few days.

Tried using a can of air and gave each of the vent holes several shots... The batteries charged and are now working perfectly.

I'm sure even overnight condensation could be the culprit for a charger to display "Defective"

i think the red light means low power for battery... maybe just maybe your battery didnt really charge.. im not saying that its the charger, but try to buy a new rechargeable batteries, use it then charge it and compare it with the other one... i think thats the problem with batteries if we stop using it for a long time... hope ull be able to resolve it

Ryobi lithium batteries won't take charge


For others with the same problem (flashing red light won't go off)...make sure you FIRMLY PUSH the battery down onto the charger and engage the latches. Simply resting the battery on the charger will not work.

WON"T WORK


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)

I had the same problem, the charger kept blinking red when I attempted to charge the battery.
This morning I called casio and they are sending me a out a new battery free of charge, and i don't have to send the old one back. It only took about 10 minutes and they said I should get it in about a week or so. So hopefully this helps everyone who has the same issue as I did.
