Question about Canon Digital Cameras

Open Question

I have a Canon CB-5L Battery Chargerthat has just gone Faulty. There is 230 Volts going into the charger, but there is NO DC 8.4 Volt 1.2 Ampere Output between the Plus and Minus Pins. How can I open it to have a look at it to see what is wrong? I have a reasonable knowledge of Electronic and Radio Repairs and I am sure that I could repair it after checking it with my Ohm/Volt/Amp Meter. However, it seems designed NOT TO BE OPENED for Servicing!!! Many Thanks, Brendan Kilbride.

SOURCE: using battery charger overseas

it's alway suggested that you simply use plug adaptors to change shape of plugs for overseas-do not reduce voltage since most all chargers including yours support 220 or 110

SOURCE: Not charging

Here is how you fix the problem (without using a 9V battery!).

The battery doesn't charge because it's been fully discharged.

What you do is you put the camera into the cradle. Now you see that the Red LED comes on solid for a while. It's charging for a few seconds. Then it starts blinking. When it does that - TAKE THE CAMERA OUT of the cradle.

Now put the camera back and repeat. Do this six or eight times. Each time what's happening is that the battery is getting a tiny bit of charge. After 8 times the LED will come on red and stay solid red.

Bingo, no problem!

Hi Gary
Is the camera under warranty and registered with Olympus? If not registered, make sure you do that online first. It also extends your warranty to 13 months. If no receipt, It was a gift.
You most likely have a bad lens assembly (was it dropped?) or microprocessor. Here's your link...

How old is your rechargeable battery? Keep in mind the battery is only meant to last for a couple years max. It might be time for a new battery. Also, there are many inexpensive generic versions of the NB-3L battery that you can purchase these days. Here's one example from Amazon. There are many more there, just type NB-3L in the search block. Remember to read the user reviews.

Well, getting it wet voided your warranty. Remove the battery and card...don't try to turn it on to avoid short circuits.You can try to bury it in some dry, uncooked rice for a couple of days. Water , especially salt water, is disastrous to cameras. The chance of it working are slim and even if it does for awhile, it may stop altogether later. Keep your fingers crossed.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BATTERYS


Depends on what battery. car battery I charge with i 10 means with a current 1 / 10 of the capacity in Ampere hours for 14 hours. So a 80 Ah battery with 8 A for 14 hours.
A camera battery in the charger I got with the camera. Or a good universal charger from GP. A NiMH AA or AAA battery, with a quick charger that at least needs 2 hours to charge. The quick chargers I have that can charge in less than 2 hours (one can manage in 15 minutes) all kill batteries after a few charge cycles. Hope this helps.

How do I charge battery on Canon Power Shot Elph 150 is


The camera comes with a CB-2LF or CB-2LFE battery charger. Take the battery out of the camera, put it into the battery charger, and connect the battery charger to a power outlet.

See the instructions beginning on page 20 of the manual: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/1/0300014371/01/elph150-is-cusp-en.pdf

I lost my charger and i want the original one sd550


Here ya go from Amazon. As you can see, the genuine Canon CB-2LU charger is pretty expensive brand new. However, the generic chargers for this battery are very inexpensive. If you do decide to go generic, make sure that you read the reviews first for the charger that you wish to purchase.

Can I recharge the battery via my PC ?? (no original Charger avlbl)


No. The camera does not have any charging circuitry built in, and connecting via the USB port drains the battery faster since the camera has to use juice to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

You can order a CB-2LV from Canon at

If you're willing to go with a third-party charger, one such is available at

I plugged my camera into the car charger as the battery died, so it blinked and then turned off. when i arrived home, i recharged the battery and tried it on the camera, it didnt work, is it the camera or...


The Canon NB-5L is rated at 3.7volts. I don't know how you plugged the car charger into the camera, but if you got the 12volts from your charger on your camera ... you fried it. To check the battery, put a voltmeter (multimeter) across 2 terminals of the battery, it should read between 3.5volts to 4.0volts.
