But after shutting the camera down, I again faced the same issue.
Sounds like the camera doesn't shut down properly. Does it drain the battery if you leave it in camera?
You could try resetting Canon settings in the Canon menu and see if that helps.

I did a test and you are right !
I charged the battery to 100% and put it back in the camera and left it
overnight. This morning the battery was completely drained.

I also tried to do a reinstall on another sd card, but the behaviour stays the same.
So it's definately some shutdown issue.

Is there anything that I can test out for you to help fix the issue ?

Thanks for further testing.


Which version are you running -- current autobuild version or the custom version from the earlier post in this thread.


Also, as srsa_4c suggested, did you try to reset all Canon settings in the Canon Menu.

I'm not sure which version. I used stick, and it made a folder called Trunk CHDK.
I left all settings to default in stick.

But yesterday I also tried the custom version.

Forgot to mention, but I also reset all Canon settings.

Does it happen if you use a card without CHDK?

You can see the version in build info under the CHDK misc menu.

It does not.I can have a battery in for weeks usually.

Thanks. It is showing: CHDK 1.5.0 Revision 4985.

Also when I remove DISKBOOT.BIN from the card it boots up normally (without CHDK obviously).

Based on your posts, this is what I gather:


1. Using Stick (v4985 from autobuild), camera does not start correctly. You have to pull the battery. Then it starts OK.
2. Using the custom version (4975), camera starts OK. However it does not now shutdown.


In Case 1. above, does the camera shut down or does it need a battery pull.


Also what mode dial is the camera in when you start up? Can you try Manual mode for example?

This is pretty strange. There are two general options:
1) Something weird specific to your individual camera
2) Some difference in settings or how you use that camera that makes you have the problem while ftm and others do not.

I don't have good ideas for either.

How do you power the camera on? Using the power button, the play button or the one with the phone icon? Are you holding the button down, or just clicking?

What market was your camera sold it? US, Europe, Japan...?

No not exactly the behaviour between builds is exactly them same.
I need to pull the battery, sometimes multiple times before it even too boot.
Visually the camera does look to be shut down, but apparently only the screen turns off.

I tried M / AV / TV and P, the behaviour is all the same.

Do you know how to do an md5sum on the DISKBOOT.BIN file?


Alternatively, you could try to attach your DISKBOOT.BIN to a post.
