Alkaline batteries are prone to leaking and many consumers face the problem of how to clean up the messy corrosion left in their electronic devices. You should first check with the battery's manufacturer. Many of them offer free cleaning of electronic devices damaged by their leaking batteries. Some of them will replace your damaged item if caused solely by leakage under routine conditions

  1. Verify the type of battery (Alkaline vs Acid based). Avoid eye or skin contact.
  2. Take precautions. Alkaline batteries contain potassium hydroxide, a caustic agent than can cause respiratory, eye and skin irritation. In order to neutralize the leaked alkaline you will need a household acid like vinegar or lemon juice. A Q-tip or old tooth brush can help scrub the leakage from the electrical contacts. Always use household gloves and glasses and work in a well-ventilated area.
  3. Clean acid-based batteries with baking soda (an alkaline) and a little bit of water on a Q-tip or old tooth brush. Never put water directly on the acid.
To avoid future problems, adopt the following practices:

Do not mix and match different battery brands in the same device.

Remove batteries from devices that are being stored.

Make sure electronic device is completely dry before trying a new battery.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

The only way to fix this problem, is to bring in to the place you bought it and see if they have a technician who can look at it or do it yourself.
I can tell you that whenever batteries are left in any battery operated device and corrosion happens, that corrosion will leak into the circuit board and destroy some of the components.
If you are lucky, you can open it up and clean it.
Just be careful when openning and do not use a solvent in it, unless it is one recommended for cleaning circuit boards by an electronics technician. The cleaners some technicians use are not even for electronic, but have been tested on delicate circuit boards and have been proven to be safe.
Ask someone like a geek at best buy or some other shop to find out what to clean it with.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

It doesn't. The DXG-301V uses standard AA batteries, either disposable or rechargeable. If you choose to use rechargeable batteries, you must charge them outside the camera using a separate charger.

I need the softtware the cd-rom with drivers for DXG-301V


You may download the driver here.
You may want to consider NOT using a driver at all. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

DXG-301V Power won't stay on


laistrop,

The fact that your camera was not used for a year and assuming the batteries remained in the camera (uncharged?) after that long a period of time, it would be very likely the batteries have deteriorated and may need to be replaced. The first thing to try is charging the batteries if you have not already done so. Plug in the charger and allow at least 12 hours for the batteries to charge. If the camera still will not work, the original batteries have very likey lost their ability to hold a charge and will have to be replaced. To test this, without spending too much money, try inserting 4 Alkaline AA batteries in the camera (observe the battery polarity marked on the flip-top battery cover). If the camera works, you should replace the batteries with fresh NiMh rechargeable batteries and charge them before you attempt to use the camera. Allow at least 12 hours for the initial charge unless the battery manufacturer suggests otherwise. I would not recommend using any form of "rapid" or "quick" charge rechargeable battery. If you do, you will be paying extra for a convenience you will not use, unless you plan to use an external quick charger, since the camera is not equipped to support rapid battery charging.

Try rocking the screen back and forth. If the picture changes, there is a short in the cable.

My Hitachi VM H710A plays just fine, and the picture looks fine. But when it playsback footage or records footage, five to ten seconds later, it stops abruptly, and flashes the word "TAPE". First thing I must add, is that I was using a prerecorded videotape, and was testing it from the beginning of the cassette and the middle of the cassette. I thought maybe the heads were dirty, and so I cleaned them using a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol. I cleaned the head drum with a piece of paper soaked with rubbing alcohol so that I wouldn't get any fibres in the heads. I waited for it to dry and then I put a cleaning cassette inside. To which, it still stopped abruptly five to ten seconds in during playback. I then decided to look at the manual of the camcorder and see the symptom. It says that due to temperature changes that it might cause this symptom. I placed it in a cool room and left it there all day and checked on it, and the camcorder is still doing the same thing as before hand. Then another cause said that it might sense some moisture. I made sure that the camcorder was dry externally and internally, and yet still, same problem. Thats when I decided to take it apart and look inside to see if there was anything odd inside the camcorder causing it to function the way it does. The belt seemed to be working fine, and there was no missing parts. The tracking poles and path alignment was fine, and not loose. Everything simply seemed just fine. So I am unsure as to why my camcorder is operating like this.
