The Casio Exilim I bought for my wife just arrived. Dropped it into the charging cable and…blinking red light. Won’t charge.
Called the Casio rep, told her the symptom, and she spoke the title of this blog entry.
Me: “And that ‘characteristic’ would be a tendency to be dead on arrival?
She: “Um, basically, yes. We’ll send you another one.”
Glad it wasn’t somebody’s Christmas present.
