Minolta BC-400 problems
I recently purchased a Minolta A-1. The camera was great until the battery (NP-400) ran down and I put it in the charger (BC-400). The charging light came on for about 2 seconds, went out and refused to charge any more. I took the charger back to the camera store and they swapped out for another BC-400. When I tried the new charger the same thing happened, so I bought another ($44.00) battery. With this new battery the charging light stays on for about 4 minutes, goes out and will not charge further. I now have an expensive camera with two completely discharged batteries and no way to charge them. Has anyone noticed this as a technical issue with the BC-400 or NP-400?
