If a problem occurs with the camera, first refer to this Troubleshooting 
Guide. If this Troubleshooting Guide does not resolve the problem, 
contact your dealer or nearest Canon Service Center.
 
If the battery’s remaining capacity (p.344) is 94% or higher, the battery 
will not be recharged.
 
Do not recharge any battery pack other than genuine Canon Battery 
Pack LP-E6/LP-E6N.
 
If there is a problem with the battery charger or battery pack or if 
communication with the battery pack (non-Canon battery packs) is not 
possible, the protective circuit will terminate the charging and the orange 
lamp will blink quickly at a regular interval. If there is a problem with the 
battery charger or battery pack, unplug the charger’s power plug from the 
power outlet. Detach and reattach the battery pack to the charger. Wait 2 
to 3 minutes, then reconnect the power plug to the power outlet. If the 
problem persists, contact your dealer or nearest Canon Service Center.
 
If the internal temperature of the battery pack attached to the charger is 
high, the charger will not charge the battery for safety reasons (lamp off). 
During the charging, if the battery’s temperature becomes high for any 
reason, the charging will stop automatically (lamp blinks). When the 
battery temperature goes down, the charging will resume automatically.
 
The battery is not properly installed in the camera (p.30).
 
Make sure the battery compartment cover is closed (p.30).
 
Make sure the card slot cover is closed (p.31).
 
Recharge the battery (p.28).
