D1 series battery issue

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by a._valerio, Jun 7, 2008.

  1. I'm using a D1h with the latest firmware, and one of my batteries is acting up. It
    indicates half full, and the shutter won't release. Upon depressing the shutter
    release button, the battery indicator flashes. I have refreshed the battery twice, but
    it still won't allow shutter release. It is now on the charger for a third refresh (two
    consecutive charge/discharge cycles).

    The other battery from that batch (they are Lenmars version of the NiMh EN-4)
    bought the same time works fine.

    There was one time I removed the battery during image deletion because the
    camera had pretty much slowed to a stop...but I'm not sure which battery it was,
    or how having done that might kill the battery.

    Any advice or anyone who has experienced a similar flashing half-battery indicator
    on a D1-series body?

  2. I've had the exactly same problem. I jus tthink that the some of the EN4 batteries
    just won't work with the D1H for some reason. There was nothing for me to do, but
    return the battery after first having got it replaced and had the same problem. And
    since look elsewhere.
    I also have the latest firmware, 1.5. I don't know if it matter though.

    My current batt is an noName but it works fine.
