My canon sureshot sx120 wont power up

The most common reason for this on these & other similar cameras in Canon's range is that the contact(s) at the bottom of the battery compartment get pushed in & no longer make contact with the battery. In some cases, the contact is soldered to a printed circuit board and the solder joint breaks. In any case, it's probably going to need repair by a technician - and, I'm afraid, it may be cheaper to buy a used one on Ebay :/

Can battery compartment be repaired when tabs are broken off which hold lid down?

possibly...if it is the body where the tabs are broken off the manufacturer (Olympus) might be able to replace the body shell. I'd check with them.

How do I get the Lithium Battery out?

Turn the calculator over. Press down on the latch and then lift up the battery compartment cover. Use a small screwdriver to unscrew the backup battery cover, then lift the cover off. This cover has a tab on the right end (away from the screw) that slides under the case. If you can't get it off after unscrewing, turn the calculator over and knock it against your palm.
Now you'll see the backup battery (the round thing) in a circular compartment with a long slot leading to it from the right. Insert the screwdriver or a thin knitting needle or similar object into the slot, putting the end under the battery, then pry the battery up and out.
To put the new battery in, you'll have to tilt it almost vertically to get it under the tabs on the left and then push to get it flat.

Cannot open the battery compartment on my suunto x6 without breaking it....any ideas?

  • Turn the Suunto over to view the backside. Insert the quarter in the coin slot located on the battery compartment cover. Turn the coin counterclockwise to the "Open" position marked on the back of the case.
  • Remove the battery compartment cover. Remove the old battery from the battery compartment. Make sure the o-ring and all surfaces are clean, dry and not damaged. Do not stretch the o-ring!
  • Place the new battery into the battery compartment (negative side down, positive side up). Make sure the o-ring is in its place, as to keep the Suunto waterproof. Place the battery compartment cover back onto the backside of the watch.
  • Insert the quarter back into the coin slot and turn the coin clockwise to the "Close" position marked on the back of the case.

  • If this doesnt work take to a jeweler who has tools.

    Replacing batteries on Energizer Hard Case Lantern

    If you have the Energizer Hard Case Lantern TUF4D1, simply grasp the whole front of the lamp piece (including the rubber cover), and twist in a counter-clockwise direction to remove. Then squeeze together the two black tabs and pull the battery compartment out to replace the batteries.

    How do replace the battery on a EverWeigh Lithium Electronic Scale

    The battery is located behind the LCD screen, slightly on the right hand side side if you are facing the LCD screen. You can drill a hole on the platic case from the back of the scale, and you will see the battery house and 3 screws on the battery house lid, unscrew the 3 screws, you can take out and replace the 3V Eveready button type battery easily.

    I have tried to open the case by taking out the spring latches located behind the 4 legs of the scale, it was much harder to put every thing back afterward.

    Sennheiser SK 100 Bodypack Transmitter won't power up.

    Hello. I Am Not Familiar With This Exact Model, But I Have And Still Do Own A Number Of Wireless Units. There Are A Number Of Things That Can Go Wrong, But If The Unit Wont Power Up, I Would First Check The Battery Compartment For Loose Battery Connections. Over Time They Can Weaken Or Just Get Bent The Wrong Way. Then I Would Look For Loose/Unsoldered Wiring. I Have Encountered Many Cases Where The Battery Compartment Contacts Become Loose , Or The Wiring Going To It. Good Luck

    Sentry s3877 battery compartment broke

    I had the same problem with my Sentry S3877. I found the exact 4-battery replacement (with snap attachment on top!) at an online electronics.retailer, but had to purchase a lot of three. I don't need the other two, so I'll sell them for just $6 each to the first two folks to contact me

    Oh, by the way, once the batteries went dead, you lost your combination! When you pop the new battery compartment in, the factory default combination will be in effect. That default combination is in your user's manual. I'm currently searching frantically for mine! Gee, how could I have misplaced it ... I just had it in my hands when I purchased the safe 10 years ago !!!

    Anyone know the default combo for the S3877?
