camera battery problems

I have a Canon EOS Rebel T3i that has not had any problems for the several years I have had it until now where it will not recognize a fully charged battery.  I have an extra battery and have tried both after recharging them.  I can get one shot off and then the red light comes on and will not let me proceed.  I take the battery out, re-insert it and it will give me another shot.  The battery icon on the screen shows a fully charged battery.   HELP.

Re: camera battery problems

Batteries have life expectancies. You just may have hit the limit. Try a new one, and buy a good one. I keep hearing horror stories about imitation and bogus batteries on the market.

Your battery and/or charger is bad.  Buy a new original Canon battery.  Try it first.

It could also be the sensor in the camera that detects the battery is bad.  A new battery is cheaper so do it first.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

Re: camera battery problems

Thanks for help on this problem resolution site.  Turns out someone recommended checkinh the card as the red light indicated trouble writing to card more than battery issue.  I will definitely keep on this site for future issues.  Thanks again
