Question about Canon PowerShot G2 Digital Camera
I got a brand new compatible battery for my G2 and it worked just fine for a couple of months. Now, when I plug my charger in, the charging light indicator doesn't flash and the bettery doesn't charge. However, with the charger plugged in I can use the camera fine. As soon as the charger is taken off the camera goes dead.
Is it that the battery is not charging or something else is wrong? Please advise.
I think I may have solved MY problem: I ordered (on eBay for 97 cents, mind you) a new BATTERY CHARGER. I charged both batteries and now they seem fine. I must say I have only tried to see if they charged and viewed a few photos. The new charger went from red to green, so now I'm thinking it may be a defect in the charger cable that came with our camera, like the previous poster said! (ie the port inside the camera that connects to the charging).
I advise trying what I did. Even with shipping it only cost me $8. This is on their site: http://store.itrimming.com/bcanbp511cs1.html
But I got it on eBay.

I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.
