After charging the battery, and inserting it into the camera, it indicates that the charge is full. After a few seconds the battery charge indicator starts flashing red, indicating that the battery is low.
I want to know why the battery indicator shows that the battery discharges quickly within a few seconds.

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
I've been struggling with the same problem and could not figure out what the heck was goin on. When I would connect the camera to the charger the red light (indicating charging) would come on for like maybe 10 minutes. I could take pics for like 30 minutes then the camera would lose juice. Also, the green battery icon (indicating a full charge) would only stay green for like 1 minute then it would go right to the yellow battery icon (half charge). After a couple of weeks the red light indicater would only come on for like a second. I played around with mine and realized that the battery terminals were not connecting to the power source inside the battery holder. Basically the battery wasn't snug enough inside the battery holder to connect to the power. When I pushe the battery in with my finger the red light indicater would stay on. So I took a little piece of paper (folded slightly) and wedge it in the battery holder and closed the battery holder cover. Hope this makes sense! (And helps.)
When you insert the battery , plug the power into the charger and the light turns ON (red or green) - the charger is OK. One indication that the battery is dead is when you charge it, after just a few minutes the full charge indicator will turn ON ( with Canon chargers the light for full charge is green). If that's the case, purchasing a new battery is the only option.
Hello, 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.
