Hello krad,

I have seen this issue in quite a lot of cameras and the battery or charger are not the issue here. A software update will fix this issue 9 out of 10 times. Connect your camera to the PC and then run this exe file

Will not hold charge / shuts off


the batteries may need replacement. 2 aaa size ni-mh 560 mah 1.2 v are required. or the charger may be defective. If the charging light or the battery bars show up in display when placed in the cradle, the charger may not be defective.

Why does my fully charged battery show only a 1/4 power and only alow me 3 pictures before it dies?


How old are your batteries, and are they Canon brand or a cheap eBay type off brand? Most times we see this the batteries are old and won't hold a full charge or are cheap off-brand ones.

Has the camera been exposed to intense moisture or fallen into water. Water damage can drain a battery quickly.

There is a software adjustment to set the battery inhibit voltage, but you will have to take your camera to Canon as it is proprietary software only they have

also check for bent CF pins

Try charging it for an hour even if it is indicating that it is already full in 10 minutes. If the battery still gets drained after a few shots, then you should change your charger.

It shut down


Try removing the battery and charging it in the charging cradle. If the camera does not turn on after you have charged the battery, it may be that the battery does not hold a charge (you can test this with a simple globe test light).


If this is the case, just go and buy a new battery and charge it fully before using.

My battery is fully charged but when i turn the camera on it shuts right back off


SOunds like your battery is bad. try discharing it :
  1. Place the battery in your camera until it itself turns off. In this situation, the battery is fully discharged.
  2. Take out your battery and slide it into your battery charger.
  3. Connect your charger with power to fully charge the battery. It is normal for a new battery that battery indicator shows 100% capacity in 10 to 15 minutes. Please keep charging until there is no time left for charging.
  4. Fully charged and fully discharged or "cycled" as much as five times to condition them into performing at full capacity.
Try it and see if it works? If the batteries are not rechargeable then the problem is in the cameras power supply and you need to take it in or replace it.

I have a Panasonic KX-TG6051CM


I had the same problem, and it seems that the battery charging circuit in the handset had locked up, constantly charging the battery until it overheated. I was able to reset the circuit in my handset by completely draining the battery. Here is the procedure:

1. Remove the handset from the charging cradle, and leave it on for a few days until the battery runs out, and the handset finally turns off. At his point, the battery will be very low, BUT NOT COMPLETELY DRAINED.

2. Next, you must manually drain the charge remaining in the battery by shorting out the two contacts on it. Shorting won't damage the battery, since it is holding very little charge at this point. An easy way to physically do this is to remove the battery, and place a piece of thin wire across the the two contacts of the HANDSET. I am referring to the contacts inside the handset that connect to the battery, NOT the contacts on the bottom outside that connect the handset to the charging cradle. Next, put the battery back in, sandwiching the wire between the battery's contacts and those inside the handset. This will hold the wire in place. DO NOT PUT THE HANDSET BACK INTO THE CHARGER, WITH THE BATTERY SHORTED OUT.

3. Wait about 30 minutes for the battery to completely die. Remove the jumper wire, and but the handset back into the charger.

4. If the battery was fully discharged , you will get a message on the handset telling you that you should let it will charge for 7 hours. If you do not get this message, then either the battery was not fully discharged, or your problem is different from mine. Try the procedure again in Step 3 for another 30 minutes to discharge the battery some more.

5. If you get the "Wait for 7 hours to charge" message on the handset, then leave it in the charging cradle for the 7 hours requested. After that, it should work fine.

Let me know how you make out.

Camera will not turn on when out of the cradle


The battery has lost it's memory and needs to be shocked back to life.. This solution worked for me:

"Hi,I just found a soultion on another website and it appears to have worked for me.Apparently the battery loses it memory when fully discharged,to fix this take a 9v battery and place the terminals + to + and - to - with the camera battery for 30 seconds or so then put the battery back in the camera and charge as normal.I just did this and it seems to be charging and the red light is solid.hope this helps."

Charging/power problems on EX-Z55


The problem might be your charger. I would call repairs and tell them you have a defective charger and they can check it for you. You can reach them at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1 and that will take you into Casio's repair department.
