Sony a57 battery drains in 5 days powered down
Apr 22, 2014

Is it normal for a Sony a57 or similar camera to discharge from 100% to 0% power in five days, or even a week or so? I have been trying to get Sony repair in Canada to acknowledge that this must be a defect. This happens with a new battery as well.

The camera store (Henry's) where I purchased the camera said they wouldn't knowingly sell someone a DSLR or SLT that drained that fast powered down. The Sony Canada store said exactly the same.

My old a200 could be left for weeks or well over a month powered down and still have all or most of the charge left.

Any thoughts or advice? They are refusing to service my camera.
