Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?

My lithium ion battery will not recharge

\015 I did not realise that my camera had been left switched on and the battery ran flat. Now my lithium ion battery will not recharge properly... why might this happen? I do hope this is only a problem with the battery no the camera...\015\012\015\012Thanks for your help xxx\015

Answers :

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

How long was the battery left in a flat condition?
\015\012Usually a flat battery does not damage the camera unless the dead battery leaks fluid inside the camera and causes corrosion problems.
\015\012Try a new battery and check the charger with a multi-meter, the voltage of the charger should be slightly higher then the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the charger.
