G1 camera will not charge its battery

All of a sudden my G1 camera will not re-charge its battery. Have tried a partially charged battery and it seems to start recharging but if if I put in a new or completely discharged battery it will not re-charge ? Any ideas ?

Frozen camera

And after removing the battery, you first charged the battery before reinserting it?
Because when a camera suddenly stops, most of the time the battery is empty. At least it does not have enough power to work safely.
Try charging the battery, and reinsert it. Then I hope everything will look different.
Still it could be the battery is not in working order, but you should notice a different behaviour when charging it. If it almost takes as long as normal to charge the battery it should be ok.

Battery not charge

the battery may have developed a memory from continually recharging a partially used battery. The battery charges to this point and reads fully charged but when used it shows as flat because the charged portion is the bit that is used and not the whole battery. Replace the battery with a new one and only charge the battery when it shows as flat.

Might be the camera's battery terminals, not the battery itself. Take a qtip and some isopropyl aclohol and clean the terminals in the battery well of camera.

Hi, My best guess would be that the battery isn't actually holding a charge anymore. I'd suggest trying a different battery as that should solve the issue.

Canon PowerShot G1: If battery pack is fully charged, can a dead Button Battery (CR2016) cause the camera to not power up? Thank You

No. The coin battery only powers the memory for the camera settings such as date & time. I suspect you have a chip failure and will need to send the camera off for repair. I know, I know,.... these repair places are a rip-off because they quote a flat rate for repair, even if it's a $3.00 chip set.

Camera saying batteries exhausted,when new batteries in

You must use good alkaline batteries or better, a set of high capacity NiMH recharegables. Zinc batteries just aren't up to the task.

New rechargeable batteries are supplied only partially charged. You need to charge them fully before use.

I think, Charger is out of order and battery used all its charge, now charger is not functioning, so battery is not being charged. I mean no power from either side to camera.
Try to use another charger to charge battery.

Battery Problem

If you have used this camera more than three months Try changing the battery. Before using fully charge the battery. Let the battery consumed in your camera fully then you charge again. Otherwise the battery life will reduce. Try this option before trying any other option.
