Battery charger flashing red light

\015 I have an Olympus Mju 700 that I haven't used for 3 months. Yesterday, I switched it on and the battery was low so I put it in the charger. For about 30 seconds, the light indicator on the charger was steady red as normal when charging. However, the red light starts blinking instead of being steady. I thought it might be because the battery was very low, so I left it overnight but til this morning, the red light is still blinking. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.Laura.\015

Hi, there I have the same problem as well. I read somewhere on this website that there is someone else who had the same problem which was a case of wrong battery, since she acquired that battery from ebay. Upon purchasing the battery from the right seller, she is able to charge it.

I'm trying to charge my Canon battery for my Rebel XTI camera. I have a Canon Battery Charger for LC E5. The Battery pack is LP-E5. The battery fits into the charger and a red light comes on. It doesn't flash. It remains constant. I've had it in the charger for 4 hours, and it doesn't turn green. Is the battery fully charged if there's a constant red light and no green light? Thank you.

Hello, I have a EX-Z8 Exilim Casio camera. The last time the battery ran out I put it in the charger as normal. However instead of having a constant red light, the red light has a continuous flashing. This has no expanation in the handbook but it must be an error as when I take the battery out of the charger and put it into the camera again, the camera will still not switch on. I have not had this camera for long. And there is no other reason why it shouldn't be working. Many thanks, Michell

Charging battery the battery died when in use and when we placed it on the charger the red light flashes instead of staying solid red and does not charge the camera.

I down loaded the pictures on it thru the cradle so that seems to be working

Jazz DV-179 Hi there, My Jazz DV179 camcorder will not turn on. I've plugged the usb into computer and camera and the red light flashes a couple of times and then stays solid red. This would seem to indicate that it is charged. But it won't turn on. Can you please advise? Also, we lost the battery charger that plugs into AC outlet. Assuming we can just charge it by plugging it into computer via USB? Where would we find an AC battery charger for it?
