battery hot and went down without using

I charged battery via fusion yesterday, today when i touch fusion it was really hot and battery level was 19%. I did not use camera.

Why? Camera got hot and battery level went down?

hI @sinanakdeniz, even though I can not help you with your problem, I can explain to you why it happens because I am a tech savy person.

 

The reason this has happened to you, most likely, is because the camera software essentially has crashed and put itself into a loop. This is why the camera feels hot (it is actually on, working, stuck in a loop) and also the reason the battery was drained.

 

This could be for any number of reasons, however the cause must be a bug/error in the firmware of the camera.

 

To STOP this from happening, after charging, remove the battery, re-insert battery, turn on fusion and turn it off again. The camera should now be off and not stuck running (even if the display is off). The problem may have been caused when disconnecting the camera from a computer. 
This is not supposed to happen and will probably be addressed soon by a firmware update.

 

Until then, make sure the camera is totally OFF before storing after charging.

 

You are welcome
