    D600 draining fully charged batteries overnight

    First time this happened I assumed I had left the camera on and chalked it up to something strange but a once off, but it seems it happens every time, i have two genuine EL-EL15 batterys and I fully charge them and put in camera, but overnight the camera goes completely dead and the batteries need full recharging again, and its both batteries, so I reset all my menu options back to factory just in case I had done something unawares but it happened again last night, I dont have high hopes for a quick fix but it happens to be wedding season here so slightly in the poo considering the nikon repairer for NZ is a long away and i hate to send my camera on the courier anyway, has anyone else had this experience??

    Not at all with any of my Nikons. Have you checked to see if anything remains active when it's supposed to time out, like the LEDs in the viewfinder? Does it happen regardless of whether the camera is On or Off? If it's happening even when the camera is turned odd then I'm afraid you have some sort of electronic issue. You said you've reset everything to factory using the menus, but have you tried the 2-button reset as well? On the D600 it is the Exposure Compensation and ISO buttons (both have green dots next to them) - hold them down simultaneously for 2 seconds while the camera is on.

    I dont think so, they still charge up and when they get in the camera theyre perfect, fully charged and it seems to work fine, its only when the camera is turned off after use that the batteries get drained

    2 batteries... Are you using a grip...? Maybe the grip is faulty and draining the batteries...

    Has the camera gotten wet recently? I wonder if there is a short somewhere.

    I'd suggest removing the batteries when it isn't in use to see if that will extend their life--at least until you can see about getting the camera serviced.

    If the batteries are still drained the next day, then most likely it isn't a camera issue--it would either be a battery or charger issue.

    If they're draining even when the camera is off then there's almost definitely a short somewhere that is sucking at the battery 24x7. It does beg the question, as was asked, are you using a grip and loading both batteries, and if so is it a 3rd party grip? Regardless, if you have a grip I'd remove the grip and see if it still drains the battery and if not work without it. Could be something in the connection.

    Check to make sure there is nothing across the contacts in the camera and the grip. And like Jake said, if you are using a grip remove it and see if the battery in the camera still drains.
