Battery Stuck Inside Camera

I purchased a spare battery from Wolf Camera for my Nikon D90. SInce they were out of the Nikon battery, the sales person sold me a battery he said would work. Well - not only does it not work - the camera doesn't recognize the battery. The battery is STUCK inside the camera!!! I can't get it to budge! I am on vacation so I can't take it to the store for help so I am hoping someone can help me resolve this issue. Many thanks.

Carefully drill a small hole (2-3mm diameter) into the visible end of the battery (drill as close to the flat edge as you can and in the middle to avoid the cells). Then swrew in a small screw - this should allow you to pull the battery out.

    This is a terrible idea. I tried this and my camera literally exploded. I'm not joking. It ruined my camera. Do not do this

I had the same problem. I used a paperclip which I bent into a "L" shape. It almost looked like a dental tool. I slid it down the flat side of the battery, then turned it 90 deg. Pulled out with no problem.

The maintenance guy from work pulled it out using scissors and a letter opener sort of like plyers. The battery is ruined but the body of the camera is intact. YAY i'm ready to take tons of pics of Mickey Mouse & Friends this weekend

This procedure worked with a stuck battery of a Nikon Coolpix P510 and hopefully works with the Nikon D90 as well.
1st off, pull the tab/lever to allow the battery to be pushed out.
-with the use/aid of a thin metal/sturdy objects like a knife and long-nose-plier; carefully/gently wiggle the stuck battery upward/outward of the camera's battery compartment until it's exposed enough to pull it out with the plier.
Once pulled out/extracted; carefully examine the battery and the battery compartment and the springs that made it pop out whenever you replaced the battery. If there's corrosion/rust; clean the corrosion with Q-tips and rubbing alcohol; and dry them before replacing the battery with a new clean one.
The main causality of this is a swollen Lithium Ion batteries. Be careful though not to puncture them because they might explode.
This procedure will hopefully work with other cameras with Li-Ion battery packs.

BE SURE TO PULL ON THE GRAY PLASTIC LEVER THAT HOLD THE BATTERY IN PLACE WHENEVER YOU PULL ON THE BATTERY TO HELP LIFT IT OUT OF ITS HOLDING BOX.

Tried superglue a flat object to the exposed surface of the battery = didn't work. I used tweezers = didn't work. Super thin pliers to grip the battery plastic wrap and pull that out, the plastic came off in a strip, EXPOSING A METAL STRIP UNDERNEATH. Before touch the strip and maybe ruining the battery forever, I pull on the plastic cover to the left side and all accessible plastic wrap with pliers: plastic gets ripped and tore. Finally, I insert the flat tiny tip of a flat head for an eyeglasses screwdriver under the metal strip and it went under, lifting the metal strip up slightly. I lifted that metal strip up with the thin metal screwdriver, WHILE MY LEFT THUMP PRESSING THE GRAY PLASTIC LEVER THAT HOLD THE BATTERY IN PLACE, and with some resistant, the battery got pulled out.

Not sure if the battery is still working, but is was bent to begin with, thus got stuck in the first place so I won't be finding out if it will work in the future for fear of it getting stuck again.

I had the exact problem and was loosing my mind, but after several tries with nail files and the like I was able to wedge it out with some needle nose pliers. Grip the section between the curves and the back end and pull. It will take a few tries but it worked for me.

YES! using the eye glasses screwdriver and prying the battery or memory card is the best way no damage to either. My battery had ruptured inside the plastic cover and was swollen.

D90 won't work. Blinking Clock in top LCD panel.


First, turn the camera off and then remove and reinstall the battery. Turn the camera back on. If the clock and battery icons still appear, try resetting the clock. If this doesn't work, contact Nikon technical support at www.nikon.com and see what they have to say. It may require a repair but determine if the camera is still under warranty. If so, Nikon may repair it at no charge.

Get the battery checked in a nikon customer care. See if the camera works with same nikon battery of the some other person. If not, the problem might lie with the camera. Visit the customer care for repairing it.

I bought a Nikon D90 a few weeks ago. It worked


Your camera may be faulty. Or you might not be "in focus". The D90 in any of the auto modes won't take a picture if the 'in-focus indicator' isn't on. If that indicator is blinking, then it means that it is not able to focus on the subject. It's all in the user manual.

Nikon D90 battery reset


Seems as if you've killed the battery. You might try charging it again.

Does the camera work with a different battery? If so, I'd just buy a new battery and toss the old one.

Nikon D90 Memory Card Access Blinking


It's a deadly common problem of D90. Fixation:Simply go to the DSLR repair shop and ask them to change the power circuit board of the camera. Will take $60-70 if the board available. Reason of issue:The power control IC get short and feedback the battery power to the battery causing the draining out and other problem like the top LCD back lamp turned ON after turning on the camera. Careful:To avoid this issue in future, after full charge of the battery, do not put it in the camera right then. Wait for the battery to cool down for 5-10 min and then put it in. With the full charge, the battery hold high ampere for a short time. It could damage the power distributor IC suddenly if you put it in the camera right after a full charge. Best, Leo>>from personal experience<<
