Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.
