    Re: D600 draining fully charged batteries overnight

    Wow never heard of this problem. My D600 is amazing on batteries and I've had no issues in this regard.

    My guess is that you bought a third party grip (imitation). It happens once in a while with these. You did mention that the batteries were genuine, but how about the grip???

    The best method is to isolate the issue.
    1. The batteries are self discharging. To check, fully charge the batteries and take them off the camera. Test if they are still charged the next day.
    If not then the batteries are self discharging. This rarely happens, and if they are new you may be eligible for replacement
    Else -
    2. The batteries are discharging in the camera. See if it is the battery grip. Just disconnect the grip and see if the batteries are still discharging.
    If not it is the grip
    Else it is the camera. In this case you only recourse is to send the camera for warranty repair.

    Hi, I have the same issue with my d600. Recently it came from service repair related to matrix dust. It drains within several hours fully charged battery. I've noticed that it gets warm as well, without beeing used. Apart of that it seems to work as it was before. Recently, since I started to search for informations about this model I found some pictures of the inside (disassembling) which makes me counscious about its cheap and as time shows - unreliable mechanical solutions in comparision to old d200... In my d600 aperture controll lever is also failing after about 80k shots.

    Could be worth to add:
    My camera wasn't used with grip.
    Firmware was recently updated by nikon service - so there is a question if battery draining issue could be related to this update?

    Welcome aboard. Enjoy the ride.

    Sorry about your problem, but you posted to a thread from 2013 that the only solution seemed to be to have the camera serviced.

    Did you send it into Nikon for the previous service? Here in the USA, Nikon offers a short warranty on their service/repairs (can't remember but it might be 30 days). Are you still within any service warranty time frame? My suggestion is to contact where it was serviced and see if they can repair it at no cost (if it hasn't been too long since you've had it back).
