SOURCE: Nikon F4s battery holder

Just found this post, so you might already have one, but have you tried eBay? I got one on there for just £8 sterling (around $15 US) and when it arrived it was in almost new condition. The guy even threw in 6 rechargeable cells, which looked new (and I'm still using them) which must have been worth the £8 I paid him, without the MD21!

Good luck.

SOURCE: how to change battery in Norelco 5841XL razor

8/20/2009 I have successfully replaced batteries on Norelco 5841xl. Purchased 4AA NiMH rechargable batteries from CVS for $9.50. Only need 2. Removed 2 Philips/straight screws on back cover(1 screw hidden under sideburn trimmer extension button).
Specially, be sure to mark on the shaver which way the batteries are inserted, 'cause once removed there are no marks to tell which way to go. The 2 batteries are "SPOT WELDED" to the metal ribbon contact wires. I used a sharp jack-knife to carefully pry the top edge away from the battery, (Pressing down sharp edge, and prying the ribbon away from the battery) then with the knife reaching under the ribbon battery junction(knife sharp side up) and prying the ribbon away from the battery. I redid this process a few times, wearing away (fatiguing the metal) at the removal of the ribbon. the top of one sort-of broke off above the battery but no matter there was enough left below , that there was enough to solder a wire to if necessary. Anyway "success" 2 batteries removed, no threat to heat sensitive components below. Continuing, I used a sharp new nail-file to harshly scrape some scratches onto the top and bottom of the batteries, so the solder would have fresh rough (un-oxidized) metal to solder to. A 15 or 30 watt soldering iron might work but I used a 120 watt weller soldering gun to solder the ribbons to the batteries (as they were connected in series before). preheat the soldering tool to temp, Press soldering tool to the battery briefly and while there insert "rosin core solder" between junction between the battery and iron, after a small droplet forms, stop inserting and let the heat on the battery increase, seeing the solder wetting to the battery, only then remove heat quickly to prevent deeper heating of the battery. Having presoldered the 4 points on the batterys, insert batteries into holder, you can then solder batteries into place with iron pressing ribbon to battery, and a small touch of solder to the iron-ribbon-battery junction, to help "wetting" the surfaces (thereby helping the iron heat to transfer into the joint) and remove heat and let joint cool without movement, 'til frozen again. (Don't want "Cold-Soldering" joint to occur by movement while freezing) . One special note worth checking and evaluating: there are 2 capacitor cans at the bottom end of the battery holder, almost touching the bottom of the batteries..... BE VERY CAREFUL that the caps don't touch the horizontal wire connecting the 2 batteries together, or the batteries themselves. I have no knowledge of the concequences but don't wanna find out either. My shaver was 8 maybe 10 years old, and went from holding a charge for a week new, to not holding a useable charge for a complete shave. So I charged the newones once fully, it's been 2 weeks and I'm only down 20% to 80% charged, and it seems now on batteries to run just a little bit faster than new. (Like when the cord is in the wall). Avery awesome experience for me cause I thought the $90.00 shaver was a loss.
Just a thought in hindsight, Keep an eye for heat while charging, because I've not plugged it in and left it a long time unattended. The previous batteries were NiCad and these were NiMH and I'm not sure what the charging differences are, but I'm REAL HAPPY, and my keeping an eye for a while until I'm comfortable with it's safety, is a small price to pay for saving $90.00 for $10 batteries.
Only problem might be fire or explosion... Be careful in anything you do, ever... But there you go !!!!! Real Happy Camper...

SOURCE: My Maxxum 7000 won't power up with new batteries

Good Afternoon,
it's very possible that you're still having a battery supply issue. When the battery compartment is tipped out to replace the one inside AAA battery you'll notice a small sliding contact it's very easy to overlook. I would suggest cleaning always contacts again using vinegar. Then wash it off completely, dry well and then reattach your batteries and try it again. Remember that the battery box has to be firmly in place and the retainer screw completely screwed in to activate the switch on the side of the camera to allow the camera to function. If you try this and it again fails it's also possible that your particular maxim had a used metering link installed just underneath the battery compartment that metering link can also fail when it does get acts as a crime or refuse and the camera won't function. The last thing I would check would be your primary backup battery which is located under the stainless steel plate that your batteries set up next to on the side of the camera it's held in the position by six screws. This is a 2025 battery and is easily replaceable. Please be sure and check your power supply first as this is 90% of the problems that we see in the shop good luck if you have any other issues feel free to contact me directly at

Yamaha dtxplorer!!!! I replaced the battery and still have a warning low battery notice on the screen. Anyone else had this problem?

If the new battery tests good on a voltmeter ( you'd be surprised how often they don't) I would suspect that the battery holder's contacts need to be cleaned.

What will happen on my cam if the battery has leaked, specifically on the card holder? Will it be rusted?

It will corrode the battery contacts and the recharageable battery will have problems making electrical contact..
Remove the battery fluid and clean the contacts with methylated spirits.

I have a Nikon N2000 it was givin to me and it is virtually new except the baterries were left in it and correded the friend that gave it to me took out the batteriesand cleaned( the best he could) the...

Hopefully your friend cleaned the battery compartment with something like baking soda to deter the acidic chems of the batteries, without letting moisture get into the rest of the camera. Then, I would take some fine sand paper or steel wool to clean any rust or currosion off the battery contacts. After this, place the new fully charged batteries in position and give it a try. Good Luck!
