Hi All,
I buy Canon 1000D in May 2010 and in this week I found that battery LP-5E is not working :( .
Battery discharge very quickly withing 10-15 shouts, and when i put it for charging it get charges within 15 minutes.

Is my battery dead?

Thanks and Regards.

It's possible that it's dead depending on how regularly you charged it, particularly if the battery's charge hadn't been depleted prior to charging.

Have you tried charging it for the normal recommended time despite the light saying it is charged already?

Hi,

How regularly I have to charge battery?
Is there is any problem of deep discharge because not charged for long time?
Because I will get this problem even I buy new battery.

I had charge for more time even light indicator show battery charged, but charger light goes OFF :(

Please help me.

Thanks and Regards.

Maybe it's your battery charger. Have you tried to use another charger?
Also it's a good idea to leave the battery to charge for longer, as suggested by Rorschach

You could borrow a battery charger from a friend that has a Canon DSLR and see if it works correctly.
Anyways, it's good to know that you've fixed the problem :)

If I have battery charger with my friend I check battery before posting problem on forum.


Thanks and Regards.

We don't assume that you would or wouldn't have done that since you never stated whether someone you knew had a suitable charger.

We can't really offer a solution without knowing whether the battery, the charger or possibly both are the cause of the problem.

Is it not possible to buy an inexpensive battery as a control? I can't think of a more practical or low-cost way to work out the cause of the problem if you don't know someone who has a battery or charger you could use.

Modern Canon batteries don't have any memory effect so it does not matter if you let the battery completely discharge or not, I usually charge mine when it gets down to '1 Bar' remaining on the battery level indicator. Then I leave it on for 2.5 hours regardless of the charging light is on or off. For my 7D Canon recommend a discharged battery to charge for 2.5 hours.
