Hi, I've got a Sigma SD9 camera that I took to the repair shop 3months ago because the battery cover broke. The repairman keeps telling me he cannot locate this part. Is he BSing me or is this part obsolete and not someting that can be located?

Happy hunting! Sigma no longer makes parts for SD9. I wonder if SD10 or SD other model would work?

Hi,
Well, while still perfectly usable, SD9 is not exactly a recent model (introduced in 2002), so I can imagine your repairman might have problems locating parts for it.
I would suggest looking for a broken "donor" camera to get the cover from on ebay, craigslist, etc-it might be faster than trying to locate a new part.
Good luck,
Raf

My Sigma SD9 rapidly drains battery power; and I don't mean over a short period of time, but over a few minutes. Regardless of new or fresh rechargeable batteries, the drainage is frustratingly...


For any camera, you need high power re-chargeable batteries - 2300 mAh or 2500 mAh. Try with a set of those. I have heard Eneloop suggested, but have no experience myself.

Unless you want to start a career in camera repair- find a repairman or send it to Sigma- as a repairman with almost 40 years experience, I wouldn't even work on your lens- leave it to the people who built it- sorry

Will only run on AC current (plugged in).


Check the contacts inside the battery compartment. If they are corroded clean them up with emery cloth or a pen eraser.

It could also be the plug on the camera itself.

When unplugged it has a little contact that switches it to battery power. This may be stuck.

Sounds like permissions problems. Try using directories under your home directory.. for example if your login is 'jon' try using a directory under /home/jon/ as destination. If it wont let you save there, there are permissions on your home dir which prevent it from doing so.

Battery Problem


You need to begin using rechargeable batteries immediately. Look for nickle metal hydride (NiMH) cells that are at least 1800 mah and preferrably more than 2000 mah. Get two sets and a charger. Print this and take it with you. You can buy these at any electronics store. You'll need to charge the batteries before you can use them. And they don't really give you full life until they've been charged and discharged a couple of times. In other words, the first few times, you'll get a shorter life cycle before they run down. But you should see a marked improvement almost immediately.
