Default Sony infoLithium NP-FS11

I had 2 x NP-FS11 batteries - both with v low capacity. Sorry if this is a known fault / cure - if not here,s a possible solution.

---- re set info chip on battery by repeated repowering on camera with flat battery - takes about 15 - 20 on/off's - eventually battery refuses to start up, check that there is 0v on terminals (not 3.2v etc). Info chip will now be re set----

Both baterys now have full life span again? - Sorry if this is an old fauly / fix

I had a similar problem I think.

My nb-5h battery of my canon powershot s10 couldn't handle more that 15 pics with flash and lcd on.

I manage to "extend" its life span putting some tape over a third terminal on the battery, that I don't really know what is for.

Its not for the power, because with this terminal blocked, I can shoot 130+ pics. Could it be some kind of chip that informs the camera that the bat is low??

It works... drained the battery all the way down and charged fully.. now the battery is reading correctly.. I guess it'll probably error out again in the future, but at least this is somewhat of a fix.
It is kinda of a pain to drain the battery using the camera but it's something to do when you watching the tube..


thanks for the fix

Estimado Pedro,

No hay misterio como se puede rejuvenecer las baterias. Consiste de descargarlas hasta un punto cercano a la descarga completa pero sin permitir que se "muera". Despues las cargas completamenta hasta que indique "llena" y repitis estos pasos varias veces.

Personalmente, nunca he tenido lios con las mias y ambas tienen mas de dos anios de edad.

Saludos,

Gunther (birdy7)
