Soak the internal contacts of the battery holder with WD40 electrical spray and leave for a while say an hour it will not harm the electronics but wipe suplus off after giving further cleaning with fibre tipped pen available from most electronic firms the contacts have to be very clean as I found with my flash gun Vivitar 283 and I nearly give it up for lost after the above it is now working fine

    Ah..Yes! I just came across this answer. I just noticed little greenish deposits on internal contacts inside the battery holder. I am glad I didn't throw my good faithful flash unit away! Thanks! Steven

To clean it, you have to open it. If you wish to know more details about how to clean and check a remote control, check this link.

I have a Nikon N65 and put new batteries into the machine. I can't seem to find a thing wrong with it but the screen won't turn on. Any suggestions?


If there's a battery check button, try that to see if you're getting power elsewhere, or see if the functions inside the viewfinder are working. Check to see if the battery contacts are dirty or corroded. If so, use the eraser of a pencil to clean them. If that doesn't help, there's either a dead circuit, or a loose contact and you'll need to contact a repair tech.

You can either contact Nikon directly, find a local reputable shop if you have one in your area, or if you have to go through an online dealer I'd recommend KEH Camera (KEH.com)

Remote does not work unless I am in the garage. Outside the door it will not work.


hello emar... check to be sure that the little wire antenna is hanging down from the back of the garage door opener motor. Then check it. If it still won't work from outside, install new batteries.

If that doesn't do it, remove the new batteries and use the eraser end of a common pencil to clean the battery contacts inside the remote. then reinstall the new batteries and try it again.

I zoom, shuts off!


Before you arrange a repair try these steps: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.

My cellphone keeps turning itself off and then back on again when i try to connect to the internet


THis is all I have found so far... bear in mind that the phone will probably use more power when on the intenet

The battery doesn’t charge properly or the
phone sometimes turns itself off
• Wipe the charging contacts both on the phone
and on the battery with a clean soft cloth.

I suggest you try a WHITE pencil eraser to clean battery contacts and then clean again with alcohol, ethanol, methylated spirit etc then air dry before turning off
