Hello David,

Since you can't mail the camera until tomorrow anyway, why not throw the battery on the charger?If my camera read 'battery depleted' I'd do that, regardless of what the battery icon or % said. Obviously one or the other is misreading, and a charge would seem to be an easy solution. At least then you'd know which one was 'off'' and could proceed from there.
And I have also had new batteries not hold a full charge until after a few cycles, as another poster stated. When it happened, I didn't mail the entire camera back and try a different model. I re-cycled the battery a few times, all was well, and I got on with my life.

YMMV,Ron
