Batter won't hold it's charge if left in the camera overnight

Unfortunately all is not well with my Canon EOS 350D camera, the battery originaly supplied with the camera won't hold it's charge if left in the camera overnight but holds it's charge is left for two days in the bag. So I thought that I needed a new battery, this was ordered and this too will not keep it charge in the camera overnight. Any suggestions?

Apparently you shouldn't leave the battery in the camera when you're not using it - the on/off switch doesn't turn the thing off completely. Weird!

Camera still dead with a new charged battery. Is it possible to overcharge a battery so it won't work?


If you have another battery definitely give it a try, most likely it won't work either. The problem is probably the fuse located on the DC/DC board that has 'blown' causing there to be no power. Replace the board and the camera should work fine. Canon will probably charge $175 or so for the repair.

Hope this helps.

I just purchased a new battery since the old one would not hold a charge. It appears the new battery does not hold a charge more than a few hours as well.


I would seek a replacement battery from the source of your new battery which should be under warranty. Don't wait too long to do this, as the replacement or refund will have a time limit of less than 30 days in many cases.

Hello hemantp. This error code in this model indicates that the lens electrical contacts are dirty or slightly oxidized. To clean them you will need a common pencil with a clean eraser on the end and a lens cloth.

Detach the lens from the camera and hold it so that the lens' gold contacts are pointing down. Lightly "erase" their exposed surfaces and then clean them with the lens cloth to remove any debris.

Do the same with the gold contacts inside the camera body. Although this is a wee bit more challenging, you can do it by holding the camera so that the lens opening points down. That way no debris will fall inside as you clean. Joe

Error 5 on Canon eos 350D


Hi there,

Well first of all you can try a full reset, Pull both batteries out -the normal one, and the date/time one. If your camera is older (>2 yrs), it may be time to replace that battery..... anyway Put a new one in, and then put in the freshly-charged main battery, that might clear the error. If further you have the same problem then something is causing the flash to stick. Press the button and pull gently on the flash. Post comments for more help or information needed.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Will not turn on


Old batteries will not charge fully. Batteries left to completely discharge will most likely be useless.

Unfortunately, per your problem description, it seems that an electronic device in one of the internal baords is damaged, causing a failure in the power board.

The solution for it requires to open and repair the damaged board, or replace it. This means that it has to be done by a professional repair service.

If your camera is within warranty, contact immediately to Canon to make it valid. If not, then contact a camera repair center for diagnosctics and repair quote.

Camera drains charged batteries


Most likely your batteries are just not holding a charge. However, before you spend good money on new batteries, try charging them on another charger (friend or sympathetic photo shop?). Could be the charger also. Usually it's the batteries, though.
