Try using an adapter to connect PSP directly to power surge. Let it charge for awhile and try turning it back on

Update me afterwards on what will happen.

Cannot remove the batter for a recharge

Let me guess? This is the first time you want to remove the batteries, because you can't charge them anymore. And last time you used the camera was months ago?
This looks not good at all. Great chance the batteries in the camera were exhausted and did leak. Or the batteries are exhausted and are swelling, without leaking but are pressing against the battery door. In both cases you have to try to open the battery door and remove the batteries. Sometimes it helps when you press against the door, release it and press again. Little tapping could help also, but be aware cameras are made with delicate electronics and lenses. I hope the batteries did not leak, but is the did, try to remove everything from the battery what is in the battery compartment. Then clean the compartment very well. Special the contact points. But don't use sharp tools or grinding paper, because the contacts will oxidise in a short time again. Just dry cloth, or if you have contact out, little oil and after you cleaned everything rub it dry with a kitchen paper and a dry cloth.
Buy good NiMH batteries, to replace the ones you remove.
Charge the batteries in an external charger and remove the batteries if you don't ue the camera.

My panasonic DMC TZ3 got damp . My water bottle leaked in my bag. I have fully dried it out and allowed it to air but it still will not go. Is there any hope??

In most cases if the water has seeped into the circuit with the battery in full power it is possible that the delicate circuit had failed due to shorting by water.
If you had removed the battery immediately and left the set for drying or opened up to dry the camera it might have saved the unit. Now it seems that luck must come your way.
So check this out and try;

    Every morning my front right side is all the way down and does not go up until I drive it for a few miles. I had heard maybe its my O rings. This is for a 2003 lincoln navigator

    It could be leaking o-rings, a leaking air line, or even a dry rotted air bag. You can check these yourself by filling a spray bottle with soapy water and spraying the air lines, connections, and the air bag while it's inflated and watching for bubbles. I hope this helps and good luck!

    Dry it up with your hair dryer without heat. After you are sure the device has dried up then charge the battery with the device off. When the battery charges, power n the device. The problem could be that some traces of water are still there inside the device.

    Waste bottle full...can i empty it and how??

    Don't be conned out of your money by Konica or any salesmen. The waste bottle can easily be emptied. There is no sensor that 'gets tripped and can't be reset' this is bull*&%t. Just take the cartridge out. Go somewhere that you can dispose of the toner (make sure it's not windy !) then turn it to the 'locked' position. This opens the port, then just shake the thing back and forth for a few minutes. You can feel getting lighter. Then turn back to unlocked. Use a vacuum to remove toner from outside of cover, then a soft cloth or wipes to get it clean. Then put it back in.

    Dropped in water keeps saying insert sim .nokia 6230i

    Turn it off. NOW!

    Open up the battery compartment / remove the battery, remove the SIM card and anything else that will allow improved air access to the phone.

    Now find somewhere warm to leave it to thoroughly dry out - An airing cupboard is a good place. The oven is not!

    Alternatively, if you have any bags of silica-gel lying around (the little sachets that come in electronic goods packaging) place the phone in a sealed bag with a few of them.

    Leave it for at least 24 hours to dry out and then see if the problem has rectified itself.

    I don't want to sound too pessimistic, but there is only a slim chance that this will work. Unless you dropped it in distilled water, any remaining residue left once it has dried out could still cause further problems.

    Hi Gohan102,


    Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery.  Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light,  If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp.  If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment.  Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....

    Brazil: No Sanyo technical assistance for digital cameras; what should I do?

    Even in a Sanyo area where they do market cameras - I doubt if anything could be done- these things are made all of a piece - if its broke it stays broke. However -I am guessing here - I imagine Brazil has a high humidity climate. And high humidity is a killerr for this type of goods. Try the following. Take out batteries and with the eraser on the end of a pencil gently rub the battery contact at the base of the battery compartment. Do the same with the contact in the compartment lid. Take the card out and do the same with those contacts - very very gently. Now put the camera and the batteries[but loose not in the camera] and the card in a poly bag With some of those little bags of silica gel that things like cameras come in. or a small cloth bag filled with dry rice grains- suck the air out of the bag -bind it up tight and leave somewhere warm but dry for a couple of days. Then when you consider it has dried out - put it together and see if it will work. Come back let me know what happens
