Battery will not charge

My digital camera worked fine yesterday. I tried to charge it as normal using the charger, but instead of a continuous red light indicating charging I see a flashing red light. Normally the camera takes around 2 hours to charge, but after this time the red light was still flashing and the camera will not switch on, presumably as it has not charged. Could this be the battery? or perhaps the charger?

    Red light on charger flashes.

  • DickieP Nov 10, 2007

    I have a similar problem. The charger shows correct but on completion the camera wont switch on. It is not the battery as I bought a new one (£33!)

    What next

    I just bought a new ex-z75, put the new battery to the charger and the red light kept flash forever. after the battery having been charged for two hours, insert the battery to the camera, the camera did not turn on.
    what a shame.

    I have the same problem as well. Instead of a constant red light, I get a flashing light and it goes on indefinitely (tried overnight several times). Camera will not operate at all!

    I went to use my camera on saturday having not used it for a while and when I tried to switch it on nothing happened. I assumed that I needed to charge it and left it to charge overnight however when I came to take it off the charger I noticed that the charge light was still red and that it was flashing, and there was still no power getting to the camera. Does this mean that the battery is not charging, and if so why, and what can I do to solve this problem, I have this camera less than a year.

I found this while searching to find an answer to solve my problem. It worked! Some say that it took them about 20 times... it took me about 7. Be patient and just keep trying! Hope this helps!



My NP 20 gave me the flashing red light of death and I got Casio to replace it. Then I had the same problem with my second NP 20 so I dug around for a way to fix it and I found the following advice on a site called FixYa. It worked instantly and I didn't risk ruining my battery.

I had the same problem as this.
what i did was...
i kept putting the battery on the charger then took it off as soon as the red light came on.
i did this about 6 times.
doing this puts a bit of charge in the battery each time before the charger starts to flash.
after the battery as got enough charge in it it can start to charge.
hope this helps.

I had this problem as well. I found on another web a simple solution. Get a square 9 volt battery. Connect the battery to your casio lithium battery. The easy way to do this was using two sewing neddles. This is really better done with two people. Get the first person to hold the needles on each terminal. Then the other person lowers the lithium battery onto the needles. Please make sure you connect positive to positive and negative to negative. Hold this for about 30 seconds. This will be enough charge for the battery to hold and then the charger will work. This is a tested solution

I tried putting the battery on the charger and then removing it as soon as the red led blinked on. I repeated it 35 times. No luck.
I then tried the square 9 volt battery method described by lancsamb above. I felt the 9 volt get hot so I disconnected it and tried the battery on the charger. Still got the red blinking led. I tried the 9 volt again and left it on about 20 seconds. It got warm again. I then placed the battery on the charger and voila, it is charging. Thanks for your help.

I had the same problem and called Casio Technical Support at 800-435-7732. The person who answered was very nice and said they did have some issues with their lithium battery and would send me out a new battery free of charge.

In that case, you are not using the correct charger for the battery, which could cause it to explode.

Well you mentioned that it worked fine yesterday with the battery out of the box. That should tell you that the camera and the battery are both fine. The issue is likely the charger itself. Try recharging it again, and double check that you inserted the batteries correctly, and that any switches (such as for 2 or 4 battery charge) are set in the correct position on the charger. If this doesn't work, take the charger back to the store for exchange/refund as defective.

My kodak easyshare camera isn't charging.....we already bought a new battery...and it still wont charge?? The charger is still good and working?


My kodak camera requires taking out the battery pack and charging outside of the camera. My batteries have a generic charger I got off of amazon that has a red and green light on it that tells you whent he batteries are fully charged.

If the charger is blown, that might explain why they are not charging.

Are you trying to use AA batteries instead of the recommended battery pack? I would use the recommended battery packs available through amazon.com.

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.

Hello, I have a EX-Z8 Exilim Casio camera. The last time the battery ran out I put it in the charger as normal. However instead of having a constant red light, the red light has a continuous flashing. This...


If the charge lamp flashes red it means the battery is faulty or the battery is loaded in the charger incorrectly. Take the battery out and check if the contacts are dirty - wipe them with a dry cloth and try charging again. If the error continues, you have a faulty battery and need to buy a new one. I found a link for cheap replacement batteries at http://www.mymemory.co.uk/compatible-battery/Digital_Cameras/Casio/Casio+Exilim+EX-Z8?gb=1&prodid=12068
You may find it cheaper elsewhere, but these guys include delivery. Hope that helps.

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.

Battery/charger problem


Is your charger plugged into a power strip?  Try plugging it into the wall instead.  It worked for me.  It just blinked a few times then it began charging!
