Why does my camera shut off seconds after starting to record a video?

With a fresh battery and fresh SD card the camera will shut off moments after starting to record a video and say "charge the battery" I turn it back on and the battery is full.

This is such a frustrating issue and I dont want to spend hundreds to send it to cannon when the fix might be simple.

When you say fresh battery, do you mean you just charged it or did you just buy a new battery? Do you have a 2nd battery to work with?


All the batteries I have do photos fine, just not videos


Hi Rich,

SW asked if you were using a new battery. The batts you have may have internal resistance. They can give you enough current flow for a split second for a still pic but not enough continuous flow for a video. Try a new battery. If no success, it means there is a resistance inside the camera. I can't help you there.


Before taking any drastic or expensive action, check out all the connections and wiring from the battery to the PCB including battery contacts. A small amount of corrosion can cause a big resistance in very small components. Corrosion on the PCB can short between 2 components. You may need a magnifying glass to see it. Good luck.


Connection is fine, seems to be a common hardware error that happens to pop up right outside warranty range UGH




Mine was a 2013 model which would run the batteries dead when not in use.

This well-known problem 'developed' over time,,, of course, just as the warranty expired.

It is a nice camera for still pictures. Period. Remove battery after use.
