Is there a video that show how to short ciruit the battery
Why do you want to "Short Circuit" the battery, as if this is done, and as I have experienced, that will often cause them to literally explode! If you mean how do you Flatten a battery, for recharging or similar. Then you use a small 1 OHM 10 Watt. resistor. Or a Torch light bulb. Anything other than a direct 0 OHM circuit, is OK. but like joining the ends of same piece of wire to each terminal, is going to be a bad. experience.

Handycam suddenly won't turn off. When I remove the battery it turns off ,of course, but when I reinstall the battery it starts up even though it is on off. If I try to record it won't and a C:13:01 shows up on the upper right hand of the screen and is flashing. Window shows 103 minutes of battery power left. It wants to stay in photo mode and won't stay in video mode. It will take photos but it won't video. Basically the on/off/mode ring is not working. Can you help? Thanks, Mike

Battery Life Battery Indicator shows Orange after taking 3-Videos or several images. Battery Indicator= Green good, Orange half battery life, Red nearly gone. I have replaced the Casio original batteries (2100mAh) with 2700mAh. Still the same battery life, Orange indicator after few Videos or several images. I have since purchased 2100mAh to suit the Casio charger and still the same problem. I used to get approx 150 shots. Is the camera discharging the batteries? Any Ideas?

I bought my canon S5IS 2 years ago.For these 2 years it worked fine but now it is showing "Low battery problem" even when the battery is full charged.I also bought new batteries but that also in vain.I found one workaround but it seems to work for very short time.
