video camera battery q

It was my daughters birthday today, I put the video camera on charge for
three hours before she got up. The camera only lasted about a second each
time I tried it. Its an info lithium or something like that, my two week old
daughter is in my left arm at the moment, asleep. Last time this happened I
put a small dc motor across the battery and left it to empty the
battery,then charged it as normal. It worked until today, about 8 months
since the last time.

There was charge in the battery, the motor has been running for three hours
now so whats going on?

First off, happy birthday to your daughter.
If the battery powers the motor then either it was in the wrong way
(not likely) or the contacts are really dirty. If they are clean on
the battery you might want to check where they connect inside the
camera. If this is not the case then there are bigger issues that you
probably can't do anything about (I might be wrong here).

As an aside, I didn't think that lithium batteries had any sort of
memory affects, seems odd.

Good Luck,
