I found this while trying to solve my exact same problem.. It worked for me after about 7 times. Some other people on the site said it worked for them after 20 times. Good luck!
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. ylu1 writes: 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.
It happened to me. I fixed it by luck . Here is my way . fully charge the camera till the led turns green. "IMPORTANT" unplug the power of the charger first, then remove the camera from the cradle . Then I pressed power button, it worked.
Wish good luck to you too
How old is the battery? Keep in mind they aren't meant to last for more than a year or two, regardless of how often they're used. Generic replacements are actually inexpensive these days. Here's some from Amazon:
Ive had this happen twice. The first time I went back to the store and talked to the tech people to see if it was a problem with the camera itself but ended up buying a new battery. About a week ago, I finally found my charger to plug in the camera that I hadnt used in weeks to find the same problem once again. It must stem from long periods of non use. After finding this question I continued my research and the Casio website tells you to call 1-800-435-7732. Dont know if that helps much but I will be calling them in a little while. Good luck.
The problem is the spring terminals inside the camera are not making good contact with the battery. I had to use a screw driver and gently push them to the left to make better contact with the battery terminals. There are three connections. I stress that you be gentle. This not the long term fix but you will be able to take pictures in the short term.
You do need to charge the camera by putting it in the camera dock and the ac cord should be plugged into the camera dock. It is possible that the battery has gone bad so you could try getting a new battery. If neither of these options work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!
