Nikon Quick Charger MH-18a and Battery EN-EL3e problem....Help
I m new to this forum , just joined today as I just got my new D80 from US (i m in Germany) I wanted to charge the Battery, but it seems there is some problem. I put the battery in charger and switched on the charging, The led was blinking for 1 or 2 mins and then suddenly stopped blinking. I checked the battery status in camera and its not charged.
M i missing something here? do i need to empty the battery first???
What is the problem??? I m confused.
thanks for your help

When the battery is fully charged, the LED on the charger should stop blinking and come on solid. Is that what is happening to yours, or is the LED turning off?
Assuming your charger is behaving as it should, and the source voltage (to the charger) is between AC 100 - 240V, 50/60 Hz., you might want to check
this thread. There is a common problem with the lens connection in some D80 cameras / lens combinations.

I think that this happened when I first got my D80. I just put the battery back in the charger, and it went through a full charge the second time.

First of all let me apologize for late reply. was on vacations and away from comp.
Okay the Battery was faulty and I had to purchase a new battery. Now the camera is working fine... the dealer will replace the battery, Hope I get it soon.
This made me bit nervous since truly speaking I always take things from sony but after long research I found that nikon is better in SLRs so i convinced myself and decided to switch to nikon. and this was my first experience. Anyways the pictures are quite nice. I havent explored all the features yet..
Thanks for your replies
