Question about Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery will not hold a charge

Two months ago I was shooting on a short crocodile boat tour in Florida, well the guide thought it would be great to do a 180 in the middle of Everglades swamp as I was lining up a sweet shot!! Funny Guy!! Result being, I nearly slid out of the boat to become aligator food and the camera was nearly drenched. It got pretty wet, but was NOT submerged or soaked. I assumed that a high tech little piece of quality innovation could take this, provided I dried it our thoroughly, which I did. Ever since I have not been able to take more than 6 pics without the battery going flat. Steps I have taken to overcoem this 1. DAYS on the charger. Literally, I realized the only way to get ANY pics was to charge it constantly, so its always on the charger now. 2. I bought a new battery. No change, still goes flat after 10 or so shots, or being off the charger for more than an hour. PLease help!!

Camera + water is like wicked witch in Wizard of Oz. You are going to have to send your camera in and see if they can save it.

starting up is way to slow
fuel pump pressure down

You will need to do 3 tests:
1 - you must find out if you have a short in the wiring: disconnect the + cable from the battery and put an ampermeter in there to close the circuit; if a current is detected it means that you have a short and it will drain the battery. To locate the short start disconnecting wires and look at the meter - when you will disconnect the wire that goes to the failed wire or part the current will stop flowing; find the faulty part and fix or replace it.
2 - you must find out if the alternator is charging the battery correctly: start the motor, wait for half an hour then measure the voltage on the battery. If it's below 14.1 volts then the alternator is failing and it will have to be replaced.
3 - you must find out if the battery is in good working order: after the second test has finished shut down the engine and disconnect the battery; wait one hour and measure it -if the voltage on it has dropped to below 11.8 volts then the battery has aged and it's no longer holding the charge so replace it.

Hi, It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new battery.

2002 Chrysler Town & Country - Driver Front Dash Speaker Buzzes

The first thing I would do is pull the stereo out of the dash and unplug it . If the buzzing stops the stereo is bad get a new stereo. Its not hard to remove the stereo. Right above the cup holder there is a small cover you need a very small screwdriver to remove it . Under that is a few screws take those out then grab the plastic cover that runs around the stereo and pull towards the back window it simply pops off (No screws) After you remove that cover you will see 4 phillips head screws that hold the stereo in remove them. Last slide out the stereo there will be 1 plug with alot of wires that is the power and speakers . Unplug it . The other round plug is the FM antenna
