You should send the camera with the battery for service to find out if there is a defect on any internal circuit boards, or if the fault is actually the battery. There is no reliable way for you to determine this yourself, unless you have the proper setup and training to service these cameras.

I would like to know what makes that the Jeep smoke after rearranging the vacuum lines is it the EVAP system on HBO or the engine vacuum lines vacuum lines


the book is free,
and real
and posted here over 300 times, search much.
all that is covered in the SM. (how to put it back as it was new)

no clues as to what the smoke is.
or where it emits from. (tail pipe end)
white smoke or black
black is rich running.
white can be burning oil and smells like burning oil (lingers)
white can be steam,aka, antifeezes burning, goes the vapors dont linger like oil smoke does and smells sweet, unlike oil smoke.

EVAP is only FUEL vent , fumes. gas fumes.
there are lots of vacuum lines
to engine
evap
brake booster
the engine hood sticker covers the majors, (smog related, )

SM , serv. man. click WK and read.

Engine Smoke from exhaust with foul smell


four cylinder?

It is not uncommon for these engines to start to "burn" oil. Check the oil level and confirm that it is low. If it is make sure to top it off and monitor the level.

Next time you change oil try using a oil designed for high mileage vehicles. We have been using Mobil High Mileage at the shop with pretty good results on higher mileage engines with oil consumption issues. We have have several of the same vehicles as your use the product and it has helped them as well. It can't hurt to give it a shot.

I have a ford xe 351v8 it blows lots of black smoke


Black smoke tells me your piston rings are worn. Also the fumes you have explained tells me the valve seals are worn and leaking oil as well
The leaking valve seals and pistion rings will expell the fumes out through the exhaust. If you check your oil level every 50 miles and the oil level is down a half quart or more serious engine wear has occured and needs to be rebuilt soon

Engine fumes leaking into car compartment through the ventilation system - how can I fix this problem ?


The main thing you will need to do is to minimise the amount of 'excessive' engine fumes being generated in your engine compartment which in turn will 'leak' into your car compartment: 1) Degrease your engine and check for leaking oil gaskets especially around the oil refill area: oil leaks at the back of the engine falling on your hot exhaust pipes and on your engine block will generate lots and lots of 'nasty' smelling fumes! 2) Check that your exhaust pipes joints are well sealed especially the one contained within the engine compartment: taking great precautions, check for the obvious leaks from smoke emitted but you could use soapy water to assist. 3) Check that the lining in your engine compartment are in good condition taking particular attention to the 'Firewall' ones (e.g. the one between the engine compartment and the passenger side compartment). 4) Check for broken heating/cooling air hoses leading into the passenger compartment.
Hope it helps!

Smoke and fumes coming from oven


Sounds like you need to clean the whole oven as old grease and spillages will keep on burning and smoking.

Delonghi "the incredible heat machine" started smoking


Hi Coyote,

I don't know about your specific heater, but, as someone who has a vast electronics background, things that heat tend to give off some fumes. Many electronic componets are LIGHTLY coated with an oil product to provide humidity protection, while the product may sit in a warehouse for years. Typically, such protection, upon being heated, will disperse in the first (maybe) hour of use. but, it could be more, I guess.
BUT, fumes should never be taken lightly. FUMES SHOULD NEVER BE TAKEN LIGHTLY!!!. FUMES MAY KILL YOU!!
How I handle it is...if the fume is noxious, so as to irritate your nose, or eyes, etc. IT IS BAD!!!

Nevertheless, if I were in your boots, I would take the unit outdoors, and let it run on 'HIGH' for about a 1/2 hour, or so. After it cools down, take it indoors and try it again. If it is still fuming, write the manufacturer a "fuming" letter.

Good Luck,
Papou1
