My canon EOS 450D battery loses power within 5mins

\015 My canon EOS 450D battery loses power within 5 mins. I've only charged it once fully, and when I recharged it fully again it runs down in 5 mins. The red light on the charger changes to green in a few mins so appears to charge.\015

Answers :

If it's an original battery, call Canon, if you've only charged it once, I expect the camera is still under warranty. I've had lots of dealings with Canon Photography, the usually give extremely good customer service.

I have a Canon Rebel EOS that I am having trouble power wise with. I can have a fully charged battery in, the power off option off but it still turns off sometimes before I even take a picture. I rarely can take more than one or two shots before it goes blank on the screen. I have cleaned the battery terminals and keep a charged battery in so what else could it be.

Sometimes it happens that the ends of the battery get torn off while we place the battery into and out of the charger for charging. the battery heads get popped off which most of us dont notice. \015\012\015\012i suggest you to get a new alkali ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Canon EOS 400D will not power up replaced both batteries still no go although when a new main battery is inserted and the camera is turned on the green indicator lights and will not turn off until the battery is removed.

Generally a fuse blows on these, on the DC/DC converter (psu ) board. This is situated on the front of the camera, fairly easy to get at just involves undoing loads of screws!! The fuse is marked "K", replace or short out with a thin piece of wire. M ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

I got Canon EOS Kiss 450D (Japan). Recently, the problem i encountered is ERR 99. I have read an article that it might be with the body lense "connection" and some might arise from battery problem. Also, im wondring whenever I charge the battery, after only 20 minutes the charger would blink red and green. Unlike before that when its already full charge it would only change from red to green. So i was thinking the ERR 99 might also be due to the battery. Is this really normal for the charger? Is

Canon's error 99 is a catch all for connection problems. You can clean the gold contacts with a pencil eraser by lightly polishing the surface and whip with a lens cloth not tissue. However after reading your description about the battery and charger ... Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera

Why won't my canon eos 500d turn on for the first time? We have charged the battery and inserted it as instructed, but there is no power at all. We've changed the lens and fiddled with everything and still there is no power. Please help :)

If I were you, I'd bring it to a service center, or return it immediately to where you bought it because if you pro long the period that you have it they may not allow you to return it. If its under warranty then get that just don't touch it anymore. ... Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera

Autofocus has failed on the CAnon EOS 40D. I can power the camera up with lens in manual but as soon as I go to autofocus it becomes unresponsive. The viewfinder goes black. Swapped batteries and lenses. I've had this body for five days. It is a canon refurb. I will also be contacting the dealer.

It's not the Autofocus, there's no 'non-engineer' fix. Lens and slider have failed, it's basically broken inside and I suspect it was the original fault. It's about £160-200 outside of warranty to fix via a canon authorised repair agent such as ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

I have a Canon EOS, 1000D which I purchased in Feb 09. I have an error message coming up on the screen everytime I take a shot (which doesn't record). The error is a Err 99, "Shooting is not possible. Turn the power swith to OFF and ON again or reinstall the battery." Which I have done and the problem seems (at this stage) to be fixed. Is it just a battery problem or is there someother problem with the camera it's self. SJ

I did some digging and found that this error is most often a lens communication error. Are you, by chance using a non-Canon lens?Try the following:1. Remove the lens and take a picture without any lens on. If you get an ERR ... Canon Rebel XS / Eos 1000D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f& EF 75-300mm f Lens

I have a Canon EOS 40D When I switch it on all appears fine. When I take a photo the shutter remains open & all power is lost. I then need to remove & re-install the battery to recover power. I can view existing photos on the memory card but as soon as I switch to take a photo & click the shutter, the above happens again. Before I decide next steps I was hoping someone out there could help.

See if the problem is related to the memory card. Start by ejecting the memory card and after saving to disk via card reader, format the card. If there is a problem writing to the card, it will probably show up during the format process. Or, inser ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

Same as one that's been posted... When I change to picture mode on my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 it automatically powers off. By changing back to view mode it's possible to power on again.

Canon eos 450d. When switched on, the display does not show ie shutter speed, battery level, iso etc etc. It works fine when the auto display is disabled and can be switched on and off using the disp button on the camera body but will not come on when it is enabled.

Check whether there is anything obstructing the range sensor just above the rear LCD. The sensor could be thinking that your face is near, thus turning off the display. Also, you should be able to use the Disp button even in auto display mode, which ... Canon EOS 450D + EF 75-300mm lens Digital Camera

Battery Problems CANON A80 Battery Problems Have had a CANON A80 for nearly three years. The first two years were great. The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up. Fully charged batteries would only last a few days, or if left would not power up at all. Have replaced the batteries, and the chargers with no improvement.
