When I first got this camera I fully charged its battery, when it drained, I put it on the charger again, the red light was on for a day but when I put it back in the camera it wasnt charged, I put it again in the charger and I also left it for a day and afterwards the red light was blinking, I tried it again but still the battery isnt charged, any idea?
I buy a lot of broken Exilim cameras on eBay. The NP-20 battery a lot of times won't charge with the Casio charger. I have an aftermarket charger, bought on eBay for $8 or so, that seems to put a little more current into it, and bring it back to life. The Casio charger then works ok on it.
Or, a new battery will work as suggested.

Re: Battery not charging
You need a new battery. That battery goes dead maybe its a factory defect its very rare this to happen but try to contact the Company to ask if you have a warranty for this unit. One more thing make sure that your charger is functioning.

Is there no sign of any light from the camera when you turn it on? When was the last time you used that camera? If you have left the battery inside the camera for quite some time, then most probably, it got exhausted. Despite of being charged for hours, can you put back to the charger again and see if it gives a red battery charging indicator? If it gives a red light, then you may need to replace the battery pack.
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.
Charge your battery with an external power supply or a car battery charger for like 10 seconds (1 ampere will do the trick) by connecting the + and the - of the battery to the + and - of the power supply.
Now insert the battery in your normal charger. ìf it will still not charge do it again for 10 seconds.
Dust getting in the charger is a problem, Try blowing it out with a moisture-free dust remover, found at most any store. Green flashing means improper power, due to dust or power from the outlet, try a differant wall outlet. Red flashing means the charger or battery is to hot and must cool down before it will charge. The charger will not charge a battery if the lights are flashing. Solid Red light means it is charging and solid green light means it is charged. Plug the charger in first before putting the battery on the charger. If the charger has been droped or hit the floor the coil inside could have broke loose and dammaged the charger requiring it to be replaced.
This may mean a dud battery or a faulty connection
or many other things - you will simply have to check out with the camera makers web customer support to discover which it is on that particular charger
