Battery inserted wrongly and now cannot remove

I think I inserted battery in wrong - now it is stuck and i cannot remove

Exact same problem with my Fuji Finepix 710fd. Battery went in easy (did not have to be forced at all) but must have been inserted wrongly as is now stuck fast and will not budge.

I used a fork and just placed it into one of the grooves in the battery.... But i placed my battery in upside down so there is a little groove. I kindof placed it in and pushed down on the other end of the fork. (like a lever)

Good luck!!!

I did the same thing. Don't send it back. I used my fingernail (it hurt like hell), and then used a blunt end of a spoon. It doesn't break very easy, jsut don't dig in, cut it, or put force on that black plastic part.

Cannot remove battery


The type (model) of battery in use will determine the solution;

For most commercially available, consumer products, using a grounded (rubber/non-conductive handled screwdriver) is often enough to pry it loose. If extremely stuck, feeding a small length of twine or string between the battery and the device and pulling gently should be able to pry it loose.

For other rechargeable batteries (cell phones, MP3 players, etc.), you may have to find a way to insert a tool or string into the space for the battery.

Cheers.

My battery for my panasonic lumix fs16 has got stuck and cannot be removed even with tweezers. Think I may have put it in wrong way but not absolutely sure.


Usually panasonic lumix uses AA batteries and shouldnt get stuck even if fitted in the wrong way. What most likely happened is that there is some external object in the battery compartment which has gotten the battery stuck there. Try using a set of pointed pliers, this should do the trick.
Hope this support has been helpful?

What does Inval Battery mean when displayed on my screen?


This means your battery isn't properly inserted or the battery is not the specified battery for that phone model..

Open the user manual for your phone and look up the battery information. The exact battery model number is listed here. Compare the model number to the battery you are attempting to use. If the model number is different, you are using the wrong battery.

If you are sure you have the right battery,remove the battery case from the phone Look on the battery for a white piece of adhesive with installation instructions. On the adhesive it states which side should be facing away from the phone.

Slide the battery into the phone following the instructions given on the battery. If you attempt to slide the battery in upside-down or flipped over the phone is not going to power on.

This is pretty common. Get some small pliers, which are known as "duckbill" needle-nose pliers. They're flat, needle-nose pliers which will allow you to stick the tips into the small space on top and bottom of the stuck battery, and gently wiggle it out. If it's really, really wedged in, you may pull off the end cap of the battery, if you're not careful. At that point you'd still need to remove the battery's remains, and get yourself a new one (battery, not camera). I've saved several customer's cameras this way. Good luck.

A tool known as "duck-billed" pliers works for the stuck in the wrong way battery syndrome. They are flat-nosed, pliers of the "needle-nose" variety.

Battery inserted wrongly and now cannot remove


The battery should still be removeable - have you tried to move it or turn camera so the the open chamber is facing down and tapping the camera

S2 suddenly draining batteries rapidly


I have the same exact problem. I just now read a possible solution: try opening the battery compartment door and then closing it again to "trick" the camera into thinking it just got new batteries. There is definitely something wrong with the way the camera senses dead batteries.
