Hi all. My camera's plug, or power supply or charger if you want to call it that, had a break in the cord somewhere, and not knowing this, I had one of my batteries in it. When the battery ran out, I realized that the cord wasn't working and it had been the battery that had powered the camera until it ran out. To feed something into capture, I straightened out the cord and it would work that way. So using that method, I tried to recharge both my batteries. But in both cases, the light just flashed very fast, indicating a problem with the battery.
Realizing that using a faulty cord with loose wires probably shorted out both my batteries, I got a new cord (power supply, charger) and that works fine, but it still wouldn't charge my batteries, so I figured I fried them. So I got a new one from Ebay, a Cannon, unopened in original packaging. Now THAT doesn't charge - same thing, quickly flashing light indicating it won't work. So now I'm thinking, did I do something to the actual battery area on the camera? Any suggestions?
