1DsMKII Battery Charger.

I have had my 1DsMKII for ever. Now when I plug the batteries into the NC-E2 Charger only the "Refresh" yellow lamp comes on , sometimes flashing, sometimes on solid, and the batteries do NOT charge.

Am I missing something?

"Charge" light never comes on.

The Refresh cycle takes about 8-9 hours. No charging will take place until the Refresh cycle has completed. 

Have you waited 8-9 hours for the cycle the complete?

YES I have and the "Charge" light never appears. 2 batteries connected.

What is so unusual is that the copy of the Instruction Manual you post above is NOT included in original "Owners Manual"

Thanks!

Gentlemen!!!

I am a total IDIOT!!!!!!

The "Power" light was lit but the charger was NOT plugged in!!!!!!!!!!!

Feel free to call me that!!!

Thanks!

Of course, you have either a bad battery or a bad charger.  Here’s some food for thought.

I ran into a similar issue with my 1D Mark IV.  My battery would not always charge.  I only use it indoors at home, so I figured an AC adapter would work around the problem.  But, the cost of AC adapter was enough to make me pause.

So, I bought a used 1Ds Mark III for $100 more than the cost of the AC adapter alone.  The camera came with a battery, a charger, AND the AC adapter.

Read above ^^^^^..Thanks!

This body makes some super files but the longevity appears to be limited.

That is fine! I will just use another Canon body. I have a few.

Thanks for your input!
