Some models of camera have an ultra capacitor in them to extend battery life. This ultra capacitor is indistinguishable from a battery to the camera electronics. If the charging light starts blinking when there are no batteries in the camera, it will not cause any damage. After a few minutes, the light will stop blinking.

Camera won't charge red light is on but the green light doesn't come on . What is my problem ? Could it be the battery

hi Kenny.
With most cameras, an amber, yellow, or red light indicates a battery that's currently charging. A blue or green light usually means the battery is charged. A blinking light sometimes indicates a charging error; other times, it indicates a battery that is still charging.or faulty battery.
have you tried,take the battery out and then put it back in?.
make sure the battery is seated.and its making a good contact.

Power on green light on coolpix L18 is blinking. Why? Camera won't work.

This might not work with all cameras, but try it anyway...

Take out your battery and memory card. Put them back in with the battery being first. Try and charge.

You might still have problems charging with the USB lead to the camera. In such a case, you should buy a proper charger that you can put the battery into and charge it. Sometimes charging through the camera doesn't work.

The blinking light indicates a charging error. Try connecting a 9 volt battery to your camera battery. Sometimes if the battery has lost all charge, the charger doesn't recognize it properly.

Digimax i5 problem charging battery

Hello,
■ Charging LED 


Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged
Red LED is blinking = Charging error
 Green LED is on = Charging 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.


If the charging LED doesn't turn to green could mean a signal that the battery is bad or can't charge 100% anymore = too old, needs a new battery. Hope this helps.
