Diconic battery problem?
on Dec 19, 2011 at 6:45:53 pm

I have a Dionic 90 battery, not used for a while, that seems to take a full charge according to the LCD panel. But my HPX370 is giving me the steady warning light, high-pitched sound, and momentary viewfinder indication of a low battery. Can the battery's panel give misleading info...ie, could it seem alive but be dead?

And the camera settings in the menu match your batt type?

It won't power the camera long enough to set anything. The warning light and sound stay on for about 5 seconds, then it shuts off.

How old is the battery? Do you keep it on the charger at all times? How many hours does the Dionic indicate on the side? Do you have any error messages on the battery?

All but one of my dionics have died. Most well over 5 yrs. old. The one that still works has always remained on the charger.

If you need a replacement battery, take a look at this website. I've been using their batteries after my Dionics starting dying well over 5 years ago.

Thanks. Will those charge on my AB charger?

No. You will need a new charger. Then again, I haven't tried charging them on an AB charger.
