I am having problems with my Sanyo 2100 batts recently. Whenever I charge them 1 week ago, and use it with my S1/A40, some sets of 2100 batts can't be used (the cam will give me an error msg "Change camera batteries") or I will be able to use, but will run out of batteries quite fast.

Any idea why is this happening? I haven't been using the batteries much by the way.

TIA.

Do you have a multimeter to check the voltage on your batteries after charging and after usage?

If you can find someone who uses a similar camera, pass the batteries to them to use. At least that will sort out whether its a camera or battery problem.

i contacted sanyo before regarding this and they said it was the 2500 batch that had issues not 2100.however they can help you test your batts out if you willing to bring down to their office.

i have the same issue with my 2100s.

I bought my 2100 quite a long time ago. Will they entertain if I don't have any receipt?

look at your batteries against the light....the details are engraved on the body of the batteries :) BTW, did you expose your batts to extreme temperatures ? left it near strong heat source ? all batteries have a tolerance level to heat.

AhV, can I go down to Heeren to get my old 2100s replaced?
yes, send them in for investigation bcos their engineer just came to town :) Leave the batts with them for testing lo...if you dun mind. They would like to find out the root cause.

I am your unofficial CS SANYO ambassador for the time being. If you face any problem, do let me know ...cheers ! :lovegrin:

I too have problems with Sanyo rechargeable battery, refuse to charge up, and those that charge up discharge very fast, first the problem was the newly bought 2500, then same problem on the 2 years old 2100, and now even 2300, I have confirmed ALL my Sanyo battery got problem and unuseable anymore.
Now I do not trust Sanyo battery, as my work require very reliable battery power source.
