BP-950G Battery Problem

One of my four BP-950G batteries appears to have died. The charger shows a continuous full charge light, but the H1 has no power at all with this battery installed. My other three BP-950Gs all function fine. All four a just short of one year old. The dead battery showed no problems at all prior to full on death. I have cleaned the contacts and tried to charge it again with no result. Anyone else having battery problems? Thanks, Barry

Send it back to Canon, Barry... I'm sure they'll replace it.

Thanks Chris. It's on it's way along with my camera for a check up prior to it's one year anniversary.

I just had my third 950 go bad, same symptoms. I haven't bothered trying to send them back as last time I called canon said they wouldn't do anything unless I sent them the camera, charger and battery. Not worth it to me. I've got three 970s that have gotten equal use over the same amount of time and haven't gone bad.
