I just bought a A6400. When I put in the battery and turn the cam on, nothing happens. I thought new battery usually have some power in them? Is this normal?

In any case, I 've hooked up the charger to charge it. Hope everything is ok, Hope I didn't get a dud.

I‘m quite sure the manual mentions to fully charge the battery before operating the camera. If the battery has some charge out of the box depends on the time the box was stored and some other factors.

didn't read manual first

 

This is what you are supposed to be doing while that battery is charging! 🤣

And... no doubt it differs in different countries, but there may be regulations that prohibit shipping charged lithium batteries.

It's great when you already have a device that uses the same battery: you can have it charged an ready and use the new camera straight out of the box.
