My battery is leaked my camera is not working want to eject casset out of it tried connecting charger but didnt helped

A leaky battery is not good news. First, the "stuff" that leaks from a battery is acid. It will burn clothing and your eyes if it comes in contact with them. Wash you hands completely before touching your clothes or rubbing your eyes after touching the battery acid!

Next, the acid is conductive. This means wherever it has spilled, it is like a copper wire. If the spill is across the charging terminals, it acts like a dead short circuit. This conductive path radically changes the circuit(s) and will have to be eliminated before going further.

To have hope of this device working again, the acid will need to be thoroughly cleaned / removed The acid is usually a heavy fluid or gel (depending on the battery type) and can be cleaned with solution of baking soda and water applied & scrubbed with q-tip. Baking soda neutralizes the acid and the water help dissolve the dried-on acid. You'll need to exercise care to not let the solution get on / in electronic components. If the acid has entered some of the electronics - and isn't merely topical - you may have success restoring functionality to the device.

Wipe away excess solution and allow to dry. Power up and try again. Good luck!

My camera was left on an now it won't work. . It

The batteries drained, and the acid (chemicals) leaked out. Not a good thing. Most battery manufacturers will fix or replace devices that are damaged by leaking batteries. Check your batteries if such a warranty exists.
If not, the chemicals may have gotten inside the camera, and is preventing it from working. The chemicals in battery acid are conductive so they have changed the circuits inside the camera, that's why it no longer works. Power is going places it shouldn't - and not getting to places it should.
Battery acid will burn skin, eyes and clothing - be careful and wash hands thoroughly! You can neutralize battery acid with a 1 part baking soda to 4 or 5 parts water solution. Dip a q-tip into it and dab on acid coated parts as a last resort. I don't expect you'll have much luck if the battery company won't replace it for you. Good luck!

Need to access battery on sym joyride 200

If it is leaking battery acid you should be able to work out where the battery is. Because you can see where the electrolyte is coming from. Remember to disconnect the earth wire (black) first. Remember to neutralise the battery acid after you have removed the failed battery.

Magellan gps 315 battery leaked and will not power up. what could be wrong

The acid from the leaking battery most likely shorted out the circuit board. You can trying cleaning of the acid spill with a little alcohol on a Q tip. The batteries are probably also no good and you will need to replace them also. If this does not work you can try taking the unit apart and cleaning any further acid that has leaked to the inside.

A battery leaked in the remote. Is there a way to make it work again?

If a battery leaks into anything,you should not even bother trying to resurrect it.If you touched the acid,put baking soda on the area touched for several seconds then rinse off.I had some batteries that were a couple years old and when I opened it I noticed there was acid leak on one leaking to a 2nd one.I threw the whole package out.For all it may be worth to save the remote,it isn't worth it considering the capability of damage just from a little acid escaping however it may happen.It may not be as strong as other lethal type acids but if a little gets on your furniture,over time people will sit on it,kids may put their hands on it then put it in their mouth,and eventually will damage your furniture.Good luck!

Watch not working!... no use if i put a new battery..... the guy says i had to change the battery immediately and now my watch got spoilt by the old seems it leaked and spoilt...... now how...

mcdevito75 here, Sadly, once a battery, any battery leaks, it leaks out acid that eats away metal. Once your watch Battery leaked acid, it ate away electrical contacts, wires as thin as hairs, and tiny linkages with--in the quartz movement of your watch, ----- there is no reversal of this acid corrosion. You have 2 choices, 1 and if this is possible, have your watch repair person replace the quartz movement with a new one, if replacement movement is available, and 2 replace the entire watch. Sorry.

I need to repair a cracked battery case

No this should not be attempted, unless you have a quality plastic welding unit and the right knowledge, and even then there is no guarantee. If you can't claim under warranty it is much safer for all to get yourself a new battery as the acid is quite corrosive and could cause personal damage or damage to anything else it may touch!

Smell of rotten eggs, and smoke coming from under neath the battery on the drivers side.

Disconnect the battery and remove it...WEAR PROTECTIVE CLOTHING!! The battery sounds like it is leaking acid and, as such, needs to be replaced ASAP! Once you pull the battery out of the car, only set it down on a surface that will not erode from the acid. If the battery is indeed leaking, you will see the corrosion where the battery was eating away the metal. This will need to be cleaned and neutralized before anything else can happen, if the battery is leaking.

I do think your battery is leaking; sulfuric acid smells like rotten eggs and the smoke is from the acid eating the metal it is coming into contact with.
