My ford fitted sat nav system has stopped working batterys in controller leaked fitted new batterys but still not work any suggestions please

Try cleaning, scraping the battery contacts and then put a little petroleum jelly on the contacts and reinstall batteries. If they leaked a bunch then you may have a copper trace or a wire corroded in two.

Battery exhausted

A solution of baking soda and water will neutralize the battery acid. Use a Q-tip soaked in the solution to carefully clean the contacts. Do not allow the moisture to leak into the camera's interior. Once you have neutralized and removed as much of the acid as possible, carefully polish the electrical contacts. A clean pencil eraser should do the job, but you can also use a small piece of extra fine emery cloth to clean the contacts until they are bright and shiney.

Battery leaks in flash light battery compartment

Take a Q-tip and wet the end with a solution of water and baking soda. Repeat until you have cleaned all of the sulfate (the white powder) from the contacts and battery compartment. Use dry Q-tips to prevent a buildup of the solution. After the sulfate is removed, rub a clean eraser mounted to the end of a pencil, on the contacts to remove any oxide which acts as an insulator. Once cleaned, put in new batteries and it should work. If you are not going to use your camera for some time, remove the batteries.

I have an Optimus wireless headphone device. The battery pack gets constant corrosion it causes the battery to leak. Bought it at Radio shack but they said to contact the parent company which is Opti

only one way to really stop that, someone has to get it apart and scrape all the stuff off the battery contacts (I use a knife and even a small file and then use baking soda to prevent the return--you can use a car battery spray made for this or even tranmission fluid will do it. once clean and protected (especially clean the contacts where they touch the battery) keep a eye, what happened is a battery was left to long or on way too long and leaked on the contacts.

My TV remote control has stopped working. I've tried changing the batteries but it still doesn't work. Any tips or do I have to get a new one?

Check for rusted battery contacts due to leaked batteries. Clean them with polish paper or blade. Due to leaked batteries it is quite likely that the wires connecting remote control pcb & battery contacts are cut off.

Do watch batteries leak?

And destroy the watch? Yes, but not as much as regular batteries do. The old alkaline batteries in flashlights are notorious for leaking, I have seen a couple times when the little batteries leak, One of my calculators leaked, but I caught it just in time. Cleaned up the contacts, and it works fine. If the battery did leak, send the whole watch and battery back to the manufacturer, they should replace it. Duracell has sent me a dozen flashlights and numerous battery coupons for leaking batteries. Hope this helps.

The batteries always seem to drain shortly after putting them into the camera, no matter what type or brand of battery I use. Help!!!

?? Drain as in leaking. If the camera makes the batteries leak you should contact KODAK immediately and they will make a HSE case for you. Contact KODAK: If you mean the camera is drinking batteries try these steps: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. 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 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)

Batteries leaked, now it won't work

When batteries leak, that fluid can runn all around the inside nad in the wires and disolve the tiny connections on the circut boards. If the contact are really clean and shiney bright, and the flash won't work may be time to buy a new flash.
