Canon High Power Ni-Cd Pack FNgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread
Just bought a AE Motordrive FN, High Power Ni-Cd Pack, Battery Cord FN plus Ni-Cd MA/FN charger for my New F1. I have three questions regarding this combination: 1. When do you know if the accu is fully charged? 2. There is no voltage on the frontconnector for the Battery Cord when the motordrive is powered. I checked for loose connections inside the accu but everything seems ok. 3. After 8 hour charging the accu could just transport one 36 film. Maybe memory problems?
Can anybody help me out?
Thanks in advance

If it is working, but not lasting as long as you expect, I would figure that one or more cells in the pack are dead or reversed (electircally not physically). You will probably have to have the pack rebuilt.

If the pack is a few years old the batteries are likely to need replacing. Sometimes they can be revived by repeated charge and discharge. Try running it down a few more times and it could well improve.
