Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 Digital Camera
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.

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.

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

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 also blinked in the charger. Followed Mjap's directions in his youtube video and bllody hell it work. Good job Mjap.

Ok I have this problem of yours. what I did is successful. I did charge it, by forcing it to charge. I use a different charger. I will post a video to youtube.
if you want to watch it. but I will make a video for now. really I made it charge to its own original charger.

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.

Defective battery. Call tech support and they can possibly send you another battery.

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!
