Battery Problems Canon eos 10D

The life of my batteries is drastically reduced compared to how long they should last. I put them on charge for the right amount of time and my battery charger is indicating full charge when i turn it off. After putting them in my camera they last about 10 minuites and i get the empty battery icon and the camera turns itself off. But if i take the battery out and warm it in my hand, once i put it back in the camera i get the half battery icon and it works again for a few minuites. I have tried the two obvious solutions of buying a new battery and a new charger, but this has had no effect and i still have a drastically reduced battery life. I have bought a canon brand battery but my charger is only a canon compatable charger.

Re: Battery Problems Canon eos 10D

My battery works for weeks. It might be a problem with the camera. Could it be the contact points in the camera?

Canon 7D battery problems

I take it this is a non-Canon battery? If it does this with a Canon battery, then the board that senses the charge level is bad.

However, the 7D has a history of loose screws which will short out various circuit boards of the camera. [screws that hold the DC to DC power board]

I have a canon 10D that is getting an "error 99".

You could've used a non-compatible lens or the contacts are dirty. Turn the camera off then use a clean micro fiber cloth or pencil eraser to clean the contacts.

Battery life has shortened considerably, whats the problem

Batteries lose capacity with age. Eventually they fail altogether. Might be a good time to get a spare.

Canon say this camera gets about 600 shots per charge at 68 degrees Fahrenheit, dropping to about 450 at 32 degrees, so cold weather can be a factor. Also using the flash a lot can reduce the number of shots by a third or more. As winter approaches, both cold weather and more frequent use of flash are likely (gets dark earlier).

My Canon 10D will not Power On. Do I need the original battery ? Currently I have A battery from my Canon 30D in the 10D.

According to Canon, the battery should work in either camera. Does the battery work in the other camera but not in the 10D?

I have a 10d digital camera. battery gos dead after shooting 15+

Try cleaning your battery terminals. You can use a little rubbing alcohol on a q-tip. If you are still having issues then you will need to get another battery as that battery is shot

Canon eos 1ds battery life

This is a year old post and I would hope you have an answer by now, if not no harm I guess.
The batteries that first came with Canon's 1 Series cameras where pretty good sort of. Mine is a (NI-MH Battery) and would last about 300 frames with lots of viewing and powering the IS lens. Big thing about these batteries you need to use them up completely before charging if you don't and charge the thing part way through the battery has a memory and you then get less use before having to charge it again. I then bought two more third party batteries which do not have the memory. When on a shoot I load up the Canon battery shoot through it and then switch it out for the "No Name" battery which B.T.W. is 2200mAh and I get about 500 frames, lots of viewing and powering the IS lens. Bonus was to me I got two third party batteries for half the cost of one Canon battery

Canon 10D takes 30 seconds to shoot after sutter button depressed

You may have it set on shutter priority or the like with the time set to 30 seconds. Try set it to landscape, portrait etc, one of the auto modes, and it should clear up the problem.

Canon 10d won't turn on

well got a little advice from a friend and here is what he suggested the lens might not be on all the way so try taking it off and putting it back on as stupid as this sounds it actually worked when i did it on mine also even though you've probably done it already clean the battery's contacts and the ones in the camera and hopefully that's all the bigger the problem is. good luck

10D Canon SLR can't start up

Well replace it by all means - what does the Manual have to say about this particular battery It is usual for a full manual to be on a PDF file on the software disk - have you checked this out? If all else fails- Canon Technical Support is the next stop
