    My battery will not charge. The red light will keep blinking but will not charage. What do I do? It is only a month old.

  • Anonymous Nov 03, 2007

    I had the same problem. I had had the camera about 6 months, but had barely used it. I went to Brazil and wanted to start taking lots of pictures, but it wouldn't charge. I had to wait a month for a friend to come visit from the US and bring me a new battery. I couldn't call technical support from there, but I'm considering doing it now that I'm back. I still have the defective battery that came with the camera. Now I'm having a focus problem, so maybe I'll take care of the battery at the same time...

    when ever i charge my camera.. the red light starts to blink.

    i leave it in the charger for a couple days and it still does not charge. i have no idea what is going on with it since it's pretty new

    i left my camera on the third bar and didnt use it for about a week , so when i went to turn it on , it didn't so i charged it , but while the battery was in the charger the red light stayed blinking instead of staying solid red. is it my battery or charger?

  • Anonymous Dec 21, 2007

    My first battery went the same route as others have reported - wouldn't charge and charger light was blinking instead of solid red. I called Casio help line and they were very nice and sent me a free battery which arrived in just a few days. Sadly, I got even less use out that battery and now it will not recharge although now what I get is that when inserted in the charger, light stays solid red for about 10 seconds then goes out. I'll call Casio again in the morning and get a new battery but this is kind of silly. I have tons of electronic devices (PDAs, MP3 players, Portable DVD players, etc.) which all have rechargable batteries in them and have never had this kind of issue. They eventually hold less and less of a charge but they don't outright fail. Is it that hard to make a battery that works??? Anyone know of a 3rd party battery that actually will work? I'm willing to pay for something that I just don't have to hassle with. I like the camera otherwise and just with the thing would work. Also wonder if the issue might actually be with the charger which is somehow toasting the battery.

    I wonder if it has something to do with airport security?
    I bought my camera right before a trip to Germany. It worked perfectly for the 3 weeks I was there, and then about 1 week after I returned, the battery died and I went to charge it. I have had the red blinking light since then, and am contacting customer support.

    Are the other "blinking light" cases travel related as well?

  • droolerno2 Jan 09, 2008

    same problem as everybody else. i used the camera once and 2 weeks later i try to charge it and the thing is blinking red! wtf!?

  • Anonymous Feb 05, 2008

    I've had this camera for 7 months, used it now and then up until about a month ago. I went to charge the battery and it blinks just as everyone else has said. I guess I'll call Casio.

  • bakeral Feb 11, 2008

    I have the same problem. I hadn't used my camera in a few months.  I charged it, but the battery charge light just blinked red. I have put it past airport security plenty of times and nothing has happened before.  I want to bring my camera to my next dance competition in 3 weeks, and I am a college student without a car, meaning it'll be hard to actually get a new camera if i have to or get a new battery or something. Thanks!

One thing that you can do and I swear it works perfectly is try fixing it with a 9volt battery. Get 2 wires and put them on the +positive and -negative connectors. Then put the other ends of the wires on the positive and negative sides of your camera. Just remember put positive with positive and negative with negative. Hold for 30 seconds and then try it again.. You can thank me later...

My God. mjap's technique actually worked. I improvised a little without sacrificing my wife's Nokia charger. The outer metal ring of the charger plug is the -ve (black wire) terminal, and the inner part of the plug is +ve (red wire). I used 2 paper clips. Straighten them all the way but leave the short bends alone. These bent ends should be used to contact your battery terminals. I used those strong strapping tape to tape the paper clips against the terminals. One paper clip against each flat side of the battery to avoid shorting.
Tape the negative paper clip to the outside of the charger plug, and stick the positive paper clip into the inside of the charger plug. If you have a voltmeter, you can measure the voltage on the paper clips to make sure at least the charger ends are making good contact. It should read about 6V.

Leave it in there for a few minutes. You might want to press the paper clips down against the batter terminal to ensure good contact.

My battery is charging nicely now Casio charger!!

Had the same problem with a used Casio Camera I bought for my Daughter. Probably should not say this but I called Casio and told them the situation and gave them the SN on the camera. They never asked if it was new or used, I did not offer, but they sent me a new battery very quickly. I will say the camera had not been registered with Casio at that point by me or the previous owner.

With the original battery, after reading a few ideas online (thanks adictpunk04) after I called CS, I took a 9-volt battery and a double RCA jack cable (the kind you use on your stereo or TV). Connected the two + terminals together and the two - terminal together (one RCA jack to each terminal, make sure + goes to + and - to -) Held this for about 45 seconds and I guess that gave the battery enough of a charge to start allowing the charging process to begin on the cradle. Been a few weeks, and the battery seems to be holding a charge fine now.

Posted on Mar 11, 2009

This is kind of late.

I called casio about this and they said they'd send me a new battery, it's almost been 2 weeks. Does anyone know how long it should take to send? I live in Canada.

Posted on Oct 14, 2008

Yes, Thank you very very much! the 9volt trick was super easy. Although it costed me 120 seconds instead of just 60.

Posted on Oct 02, 2008

Hi all. I tried the freezer suggestion and that didn't work. I'm not technologically savvy enough to do that youtube suggestion, so I tried calling the for tech support. They did send me a new battery. Be warned though they will only do that if its still under warranty.

An update to my (tkleefixya) post. The battery charged, and I could use the camera. But I notice it does not seem to hold its charge as well as before. The battery indicator shows just 1 (out of 3) bars after taking maybe 10 shots. I am wondering if I had messed up the battery, or the underlying problem could be the camera.

Another way you can make the battery charge without the need of a different charger, is to freeze it. Yea thats right put the battery where your ice trays are for about 15 to 20 min and then place on your charger. Simple and easy.

My battery did the same thing. I took Jessia's advise and called them.  Sure enough it is a common problem with Lithium Batteries.  They're sending me a new free one. Yay, but dang....

I had the exact same problem with my charger. I called the Casio Support Center (800.435.7732) They told me thats a common characteristic in lithium batteries. They took down my information and are mailing me a new battery free of charge. They suggested I just dispose of the old battery. Try giving them a call- I'm thinking if your camera is a recent purchase they will replace the battery for you.

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.

Ok all mine had the same problem however problem has been solved! The power cord that plugs into the charger is a common cord you may have laying around the house. I switched the power cord to my charger and the dreaded blinking stopped! Its just a bad power cord to the charging unit! Hope this helps!

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.

Charger red lite flashing. Camera comes on for one second and shuts off

Here's a copy from the owners manual:
■ Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged 
Red LED is blinking = Charging error 
Green LED is on = Carging is complete

● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.

Another charging error is when the batteries are so depleted, they won't charge up to 100% anymore = red light doesn't go out and remains on for too long, means get a new battery.

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)
