New Batter won't fully charge and camera won't power off
Hi, I got this camera used and when you put the switch to off/charge it goes off and comes right back on. I purchesed a new battery, put it on the camera and plugged it in but I'm not seeing the display for the amount the battery has charged all the time but when it does show up, it's not fully charged. Otherwise this camera tapes quite nicely but you have to always remove the battery or it will constantly drain. Any ideas out there?

The battery will not hold a charge or cannot be charged at all.
Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue.
IMPORTANT: It is recommended that you only use a Sony® brand rechargeable battery.
Remove the battery from the camcorder or charger.
Ensure the metal contacts on the battery are free of corrosion.
NOTE: If necessary, the metal contacts can be cleaned using a soft cloth.
Reinsert the battery into the camcorder or charger.
If the issue is still unresolved, then the

I just bought a T3i and only used it 2 days of shooting. On third day, it's not turning on and it's 80 degree's. So not cold weather. Batteries are fully charged. When I put batter in and turn the switch on, the red light comes on for only a second and then nothing! Other times the red light won't even come on, period. As I said, I've only had it 3 days and it's dead....
Hi, Is your Zeki fully charged? My suggestion is to hold the on/off button for a few secs. to fully power down. Put it on the charge and let it fully charge before trying it again. Then try turn it on again.
I had this same problem! Scoured the web and found no solution. This is what I did to fix it...
Remove battery. Unplug charger. Press and hold the power button for 20 - 30 seconds. While still holding the power button, re-insert the battery and/or plug in the charger. Voila! Came back to life and worked like nothing ever happened.
I also did the same thing with the record button, but it was the power button that got the result.
Your batteries are too low.
When you switch on the camera, the lense go in. Then lense comes out fully. Then, if the batteries are low, lense goes in and camera turns off.
But if the batteries are too low, camera turns off before the lense retracts or even before the lense comes out fully.
My old Panasonic Palmcorder IQ shows a red light in both switch positions-camera and VCR. Maybe yours has red for camera and green for VCR so you could tell them apart. I found that the Panasonic battery that came with the camera was the cheapest kind with the least charging time. I bought other batteries, they were good for a while, but now, many years later, they won' t hold a charge. Since I am only recording inside of my house, I have resorted to using the AC wall socket for power. I have to take the battery out of the camera. I found a power plug-in hole (like ones on cell phones) in the battery compartment. I also found one of these holes on my battery charger. My camera came with a double ended power plug. I plug one end into my camera and the other end into the battery charger. I plug the charger power cord into the wall outlet, and I have power to my older camera. Maybe you can find this double ended power cord at a store or on line.
Did you know that there are 2 kinds of batteries? Some have memories and others do not rely on a memory. The ones with memories have to be fully discharged or they will only charge a little, and keep charging less and less each time they are charged. The ones without the memory can be charged fully without being discharged fully. Check into battery information on line to get more information. Maybe you can get the non-memory kind.
my camera worked, and as i was playing with the menues i changed the batter setting from alkaline to nimh, or the other way round now when i put in ni mh battteries fully charged, it say low battery, gotta try high power alakline now and hope it works
hte battery LID has not closed properly. or u must have kept the auto shut down settings very low. this can be resolved by resetting the camera. Have you tried a hard reset on their camera by removing the main
power batteries for 60 seconds and the reinserting them as if it were
the first time power up. This may not fix your particular problem, but
when the processor that runs all of the electronic features of the
camera gets confused, this is the best way to clear its confusion. even if problem is not cleared take it to service centre.
