    I"ve had my Exilim for over a year now and the charger has always worked the way it's supposed to (red light remains on solid while it charges the battery and goes off when done, I never had a green light).

    Now the red light just blinks and no charging takes place!?

    The same thing happened to my sisters camera (same model and she had two chargers and BOTH messed up at the same time). She took hers back as it was still new, but what's my solution, by a new charger?

  • Stabie Jun 14, 2008

    I bought the casio exilim in Dec '07 and 3 months later my battery stopped charging. The charger's red light indicator is blinking when it's supposed to be a constant red light until it turns green, when the battery is completely charged. What are we supposed to do, especially if we can't find the receipt for the camera? I recently moved and all of my receipts are in a heap of mess in a storage unit until I move in my apt.

    I have Exilim EX-Z75 camera with same problem, I reported the problem to CASIO service and they said it was the battery and sent me a new one. The new battery does the same thing. Worked OK for 3 or 4 days and quit. Try to charge and the little red light on the charger just blinks.

  • antfire Aug 04, 2008

    I had the same blinking red light problem. Warranty is only for 1 year so you need to call 1-800-836-8580 for a new one which support said was cheaper than going to a regular retailer, about $30 for a new one.

  • k1shop Sep 01, 2008

    I am having the same problems. My battery is less than a year old, so they are sending me a new one from Casio. Hopefully, it will last. I bought a non-Casio battery as a back-up battery, after I received my camera last Christmas, and I've had no problems with it. The Casio one never seemed to hold a very good charge, so I needed the back-up one a lot.

  • kat_salmon Nov 08, 2008

    I had the exact same problem and even bought a new one through Amazon that failed to work as well. I called the assistance line and after informing the very kind associate that I had the camera for less than a year they sent me a new one. BUT! it will not be under warranty if you have had it longer than a year. None of this is stopping my boyfriend from trying the jumpstarting trick though as he is excited to try it!

    I have the same problem. Bought the camera at Radio Shack and they tell me that I cant buy a new battery - out of stock at all stores and online. - Cascio will replace free - Very pleased with them.....They recommend not to let the battery go w/o charging for too long.

  • Anonymous Nov 27, 2008

    WOW!!! I had this problem just now... my camera battery charger was blinking red and I was like whaaat? So I Googled it [THANK GOD FOR GOOGLE] and this thread came up! And I tried the battery thing and it WORKED! HALLELUJAH!

    MATERIALS: 9 volt battery, 2 pieces of wire the same length, casio battery

    DIRECTIONS: connect the + sides of each battery with a wire, and the - sides of each battery with another wire. [I just held them there, but maybe you can tape them if you're having trouble.] Hold it for 30 seconds. Then try charging it. If it doesn't work keep trying it until it does. TRUST ME! It took me 5 times to do it effectively.

    Thank you poster who came up with this trick!!!


  • Anonymous Dec 06, 2008

    I had the same problem for my Exilim EX-Z75. Thank goodness for this site! I did the 9-volt method with 2 paperclips, held the battery connections for 120 seconds, popped it in the charger and watched the red light remain solid. Works just fine now. Thanks!!!

  • Anonymous Dec 06, 2008

    I was able to fix it thanks to this site, I just found a 9 volt transformer, a paperclip and a straight metallic object, to which I was able to charge the battery for a moment. After about 30 seconds, it worked great. Thanks!

  • tpersico Dec 24, 2008

    I've had the same problem. First battery was blinking red. Got a second one free from Casio and hardly used it and now same problem - with blinking light and no charge.



    What I can't understand from reading all these blogs is this...I paid $330 for this camera new. It has never worked or stayed charged like my previous digital (Kodak Easy Share). And, from looking at all the blogs here there are a ton of people experiencing the same issue. Doesn't that mean this was made poorly. Doesn't that mean that Casio should do a "recall" of the product? If not, with all the people who have spent the $ on a faulty set up should there be a class action lawsuit to recover our money?



    My camera is now over 1 year old, I've only used it a little and the battery never is able to recharge. Their new model is selling for $270. It seems to me Casio owes us a refund, an explanation as to how to correct the problem or prevent it from happening again (i.e. recharge the battery once a week -- do the 9 volt trick someone posted here). I mean this is ridiculous to see a blog with all these people having the same problem and Casio is not truly addressing it other than sending out a replacement battery and no explanation for what to do to prevent it from happening again.



    Several people here have had it happen again...just like me.



    Are we now paying over $300 for disposable cameras?

    The red light keeps blinking. It is supposed to remain constant red. And then turn green when charging

  • stuckintheEU Apr 01, 2009

    I had the same problem as everyone else - my casio battery wouldn't charge, when I put it in the charger the charger blinked red. Unfortunately, I didn't have the option of calling customer service as I am living in Europe right now and my camera was bought in '06 (also outside of the US) and so probably isn't covered under warranty. Also, I am fairly tech savvy but don't have a 9v battery to hook my camera battery to. However, I need the battery for this evening (world cup qualifying game!) For those of you who also don't have these options available I read something on here that WORKED without calling customer service or forcing a charge via another battery...



    I can't remember who (but THANK YOU so much!) but they suggested reinserting the battery repeatedly several times - when the charger actually begins to blink and isn't red - I tried this about 7 times and its finally charging! Thanks again and I hope this helps those of you in a situation like mine!

    Hi-Have just encountered the same problem of the charger not charging the battery i.e red light on and off instead of constant. Have just read the tip of keep inserting the battery in and out of the charger until the red light remains constant. Tried this and after about 20 or so times it finally worked. Thank you very much to the person stuck in the EU who posted this-very very grateful.

I HAVE A RED BLINKING LIGHT, AS WELL. FIRST, I CALLED STAPLES, BECAUSE OF THE EXTENDED WARRANTY I PURCHASED. AFTER A 10 MINUTE TUG OF WAR, WITH AN AUTOMATED OPERATOR, I WAS FINALLY CONNECTED TO A HUMAN. I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS A BATTERY ISSUE AND IT WAS NOT COVERED ( BIG SURPRISE ). SO, I JUST CALLED CASIO @ 1-800-435-7732. A LIVE OPERATOR ( BONNIE ) CAME ON THE LINE WITHIN 2 MINUTES. SHE ASKED ME THE MODEL NO. ( EX-Z75 ) AND PURCHASE DATE ( CHRISTMAS '07 )...SHE SAID THAT IT HAS BECOME AN ONGOING PROBLEM WITH THE LITHIUM BATTERY. A NEW REPLACEMENT BATTERY WILL BE SENT OUT, TOTAL FREE OF CHARGE WITHIN 5-7 DAYS! NO PROOF OF PURCHASE WAS REQUIRED. CASIO IS A PLEASANT SURPRISE IN TODAYS CORPORATE WORLD.
WHILE POSTING THIS, I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE THE 9 VOLT BATTERY TRICK A TRY. AGAIN, I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED...IT WORKS! :)

Acctually it means for some reason the battery is so depleated the charger wont take it and blinks red. I know i just fixed mine just two miniuts ago and now its charging fine. what i did was i got a 11 volt battery that was charged you can use a 9 volt if u have it and get two pices of wire and put the positve to positve and neg. to neg. of both batteries so there hard lined together and wait about 30 sec and put it on the exilim charger and if it dosent work the first time try a few more times and eventually it should work if not then u may have other problems.

RIGHT!

I have had this problem with 2x of my exilim cameras now several times. And there ARE solutions, so dont fret:

1) When you load your camera into the dock you will notice that for the first couple of seconds, the red "charge" light is steady... and it only starts to flash after a few seconds... WELL, in this first couple of seconds the battery is getting a tiny bit of charge - so if you have a little patience sit with the camera in the dock & let the teeny bit charge go into it, then everytime the red light flashes remove the camera, and then put it straight back in. Do this about 10x times and it will jump start the battery - the red light WILL eventually stay stable red and charge it for you.

2) Sometimes, and only sometimes - if you remove the battery from the camera & load the camera into the **** (without the battery in it) and press the "photo" button on the cradle.. then re-insert the battery and put it all back into the dock it resets the battery.

3) If all else fails, give Casio a ring, they are very quick & helpful - and will send you out a new replacement battery free of charge. It usually takes around 5 days to arrive.

Pud, x

March 2009 SUCCESS! After blinking red and inserting and reinserting the battery in the charger over and over with no success, I tried the "9V battery" trick suggested on this website. And it worked! I was so skeptical, but the 9V battery method worked for me, as follows:
MATERIALS: 9V battery (the rectangular one with the two battery terminals sticking out of one end). Two uncoated metal paperclips Camera battery
METHOD: This is much easier if two people are involved, but I did manage to do it on my own... BTW, don't worry, you CANNOT get electrocuted doing this - it is safe to do! Straighten both paperclips as straight as you can. If you keep them long, they are very awkward to work with so if you have a wire cutter to hand, cut them in half (keep the straightest parts). It is important that both pieces are the same length. Hold a wire in each hand. Use the first one to connect the positive (+) (V battery terminal to the positive connection on the camera battery. Use the second wire to connect the negative ( - ) 9V battery terminal to the negative connection on the camera battery. Hold these connections at the same time, making sure that you don't break the connection, it must remain constant. It will seem like nothing is happening, but just to a slow count to "30," then try inserting the camera batter into the charger. If it doesn't work, do it all again (it took me two tries, and someone else on this post said they had to do it give times). GOOD LUCK! PS - I don't know why this works, but the next time I'm chatting to an electrician, I'll be sure to ask. I AM SO HAPPY MY BATTERY IS CHARGING RIGHT NOW :)

    Hi, just to say that I've just encountered this problem with the blinking red light on charger (exilim camera sat in a drawer for several months so the battery must have drained). The 9V battery trick worked perfectly - the terminals on the 9V battery I used did not quite touch the terminals of the camera battery so I unfolded two small metal paper clips, wrapped one around each terminal and used the pointy ends to touch the cam battery terminals. Held for 30 seconds as advised. It works perfectly! Thanks for the tip - I'll know what to do next time! (And will also store the cameras with the batteries OUT.)

Too bad Casio only sends you a new battery if you've purchased it within a year ago, the tech support lady was not helpful at all, and I need to find a 9 or 6 volt so i can try the trick! But if you happen to call and get Holly, might as well hang up. casio sucks

Having read above solutions for fixing a "battery" I say "what" I manually cleaned the contact points with a good pencil eraser like a lot of good techs do on electronic boards with 98 percent success but it did not work. Blasting that battery with 9 or 11 volts should certainly kill it for the long haul that apparently this casio battery does'nt have what it takes. would like to get a refund of the camera instead of a list to trying to resolve their battery problems.

I've just tried the 9V battery solution and it works. There's no need for wires however since the 9V terminals are just the right width apart to hold them against the camera battery contacts (+ to +,-to-)

no other sources needed. the blinking light means your battery is so dead, the charger can't pick  up any electrical signals. this simple trick takes about 10 minutes to fix your battery

Posted on Oct 04, 2008

Just called tech support and was told that because I purchased the camera a year ago, I am no longer under warranty and that I have to call 800-836-8580 to purchase a replacement. I asked about a free replacement and was told (in no uncertain terms) that because it's not under warranty, it's not covered.

Posted on Sep 16, 2008

I actually had this problem exactly 3 months ago. I called Casio and they sent me a new battery...quickly! Within two days. nice of them to make it priority. But this happened again!!

What the guy earlier said about the battery recharging system worked and it was much easier than calling. If you don't use your digital camera often (lets face it, I'm not a cam *****), the battery continues to a point where it can no longer be charged (it must be charged a little bit in order to begin the charging process in your individual units. This is a semi-outdated system on Casio's part, but what can you do?

Take a 9V or 11V battery, wrap some copper or metal wire around the +/- poles and match them to the +/- poles on your camera battery. Wait 30 seconds. Then your camera battery should charge. If you want to be smart about it, see if it works and then call Casio and get two batteries out of them and you can keep it as a back up! =)

This whole thing is happening to me at the moment. i just haven;t ordered the battery yet. See my friends dropped my camera, and it now has a broken LED screen. My camera hasn't been fixed yet, but I thought the reason why my battery charger was blinking red was because the camera was sowly getting weaker, but my sister has the same camera as me in a different color, so I asked her for her battery and it was the same broken LED I knew and "loved". But yes, the solution is to get a new battery.

The 9v battery woks. but contact the tech support and get a free battery. Thanks for the help

I had the same problem few months ago, called up Casio and they were incredibly helpful and sent the replacement battery. However I had left the camera unused and the same problem has repeated. Called them again, got a customer service agent in 10 seconds and she said it will be replaced free again. Issue is that it keeps happening and how long does one have to keep calling up and asking for replacements. If their customer service was not so good, there will be lots of annoyed customers. Jay

The battery on our 2 year old Casio camera would not hold a charge. I searched FIXYA before ordering a new battery. The solution in this post using a 9V battery worked like magic! We used alligator clamps for the wires on the 9V battery and held the copper against the camera battery for 30 seconds and the battery charged fully in less then two hours! It is a bit awkward holding the two wires against the camera battery. Have a second person hold one of the wires. This advice saved us $25! Thanks FIXYA!

I have a sharp aquos lc-c4677un its not turning on at all now. When I push the power botton on the tv, the power light turns on and about 2-3sec the power and opc light start to blink and thats about it.


How are the power and opc lights blinking? Do they blink simultaneously or does one blink then the other? How many time do they blink per second? Also have you had it fixed yet? and if so what was done? I had a similar problem with my set.

H700 Motorola BT earpeice, no indicator lights aside from a green


Same thing happened to me. I call the support center and if you bought it from a 3rd party, it is probably a software problem. See if you can get a new one or buy it elsewhere.

Is the red light on the charger suppose to stay on or blinking for the battery to charge?


It is supposed to stay on. If it is blinking then your battery has gone completely dead. You can force the charger to charge the battery by applying a voltage (AA battery w/ wires worked for me) across the charging terminals while inserting the battery. You'll have to take the charger apart for this.

Charger red lite flashing. Camera comes on for one second and shuts off


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.

Same Problem


Hello, it was: 
■ Charging LEDCharging 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.


Or if the red LED remains on without turning green could mean a bad battery that no longer charges to 100% - get a new battery. Hope this helps
