Once it is coroded there is a chance to clean it but guarantees are not givin this works :

take a stick with two peaces of paper (also used to clean your ears , sorry don't know the english word) put a little (max 2 drops ) of pure alcohol on one side, silide open the battry component , go inside with the wet side first , do not press to hard and go up and down the battery component holder. once wet , take the other (dry side) to clean the battery component

repeat steps until it looks good, than leave it a dry place (normal room temperature) for 24 hrs / 48 hrs , check if the unit is dry after 24 hrs, if so insert batteries like GP / VARTA etc do NOT use cheap cells and i recommend buy a set of 2700 - 2950 Mah NIMH accu''s witch powercharger and hopefully you have a working camera with power

Can I use rechargeable batteries?


didnt specify device --rechargeable batteries are a power source like regular batteries but you can recharge them when they get low and not change them out and buy new --so unless their is a special warning on the product specifically stating no rechargeable batteries you can use them

Battery replacement for G Shock AWG-M100


Sounds like someone has replaced the rechargeable cell with a regular silver oxide of the same dimensions. Normally this doesn't work as the rechargeable cells have a part of the connector welded to them and normal cells don't. If you can source the rechargeable cell they are relatively easy to fit you just have to make sure the connector on the cell goes into the righ tplace on the watch.

How do i fix my kodak easyshare ZD8612is when wont turn on even with batteries?


Where did you get these new batteries?
I hope you know you can't use alkaline or NiMH rechargeable batteries.
Only Lithium batteries can be used, because they do have a higher voltage.
If you are sure you have the correct batteries, check if the contacts are clean and shiny. Clean contacts always with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.
the picture down here is just to show you can't use alkaline batteries. There are also rechargeable lithium batteries for your Kodak.

I have a Norelco 4845 XL rechargeable razor that has not been used for about 8-10years. I took it apart and the batteries seem to be coroded around the terminals. What can I use to clean the terminals...


It would not be a good idea to try to use the shaver with those batteries...even if you cleaned them. If you intend to use the shaver, you should replace the batteries. You will find correct batteries at shaversource.com

Vtech Kidizoom camera. Have changed batteries but unit is not even switching on. Son has had for just over a year and it has been dropped several times.


Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the battery compartment. Do this with a cotton swab "dampened" in rubbing alcohol. You may also want to clean the battery contacts and the charging station if so equipt. Thanks, Dana

My canon powershot A530 WONT TURN ON!!!!


Check the batteries, and if they are bad, replace them. If it has rechargable batteries, just get rid of them and try regular alkaline batteries. That should be the fix.

You cant use regular batteries on these cameras. I have the same one., you need to buy rechargeable batteries or lithium batteries, both are stronger,but more costly than your regular alkaline batteries. This will defrinatly fix the problem..I am 100% positive,.They sell recharg- able batteries ar walmart for like $20.00 taht comes with 4 aa batteries and the pulg in charger.

It's the type of battery you are using. Use a rechargable battery or a long-life disposable rated for digital cameras. Regular (cheap) AA batteries don't have enough power to run this type of device - even if they are brand new. Save the cheap batteries for your wall clock.
