Defective LP-E4?
May 10, 2014

Hi folks,

I bought a brand new Canon LP-E4 a month ago. I fully charged the battery fired a few shots on the MKIV and put it away. I am shooting a rugby match today and I put the battery in the camera turned it on and nothing happened.

Strange that a fully charged battery didn't hold charge. I put it on the charger again and it seems that the battery was fully drained while in storage. Simply because the first green light came on as soon as the charging started.

And here is the problem; I put the fully charged battery in the camera fired a few shots. Turn the camera off and on and the battery is not communicating with the camera so the camera wont turn on.

Any ideas????

I tried this battery on the MKIII with the same behavour.
