Question about Olympus Camedia D-395 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery contact is broken

The battery contact on the bottom (with the camera in the upright position) seem to have corroded and broken off. When I put batteries in it did not work and upon looking at the contacts there is some corrosion on one side and the contact has broken off. Can I repair this or send off to be repaired and is the cost versus a new purchase worth it? Thank you for your assistance.

You can have it repaired but the costs of a good box (not too small and not to big, special foam, are probably high and the repair cost are the worst of the technician fee (material is porbably within a few dollar ) but your gues is as good as mine , go to a olympus dealer , ask him what he /she thinks the cost of repair would be and weigh that against the price of a new one.

Nikon d3000 sat in rain....put in bag of rice to dry message on screen reads"this battery cannot be used. Please use battery designated for this camers."

Could be the error has nothing to do with the rain at all. The camera is perhaps 4 years of age? some batteries last for 10 years. But some can't survive 2 or 3 years. All depends on how they were used or abused. When normal charged and discharged in a regular cycle, the battery can survive 1000 cycles. When left alone for very long periods it damages the battery. See if you know someone with a Nikon camera that uses the same battery and try his battery in your cam and put your battery (if he or she allows this) in the the other camera. If another battery works correct, no need to test your battery in another camera.
You also could look in the battery compartment is the connection points are corroded by the water. ls check the contacts on the battery. Eventually clean it with contact fluid. don't scratch the contacts, because the will corrode very quick after that.

Doorbell doesn't work

It seems your doorbell transmitter got wet and corroded the contacts.
These push buttons are not sealed at all and thus will let rain, snow etc. eventually corrode the electronics.
Solution: Find a new push button on eBay.

Hello Terry, Sounds like you have answered your own question, it sounds as if the contacts inside the battery box are either corroded or damaged. If you look down inside the battery box you will see three contacts, look close for corrosion or damage.

Whenever I put batteries in the camera it won't turn on but if I use an AC adapter it works just fine. I've tried Heavy Duty, Alkaline, Lithium, and even Rechargable. The battery door is fine and intact.

The manual indicates that the camera should be able to use either alkaline or rechargeable AA size batteries.

Make sure that you are observing proper polarity of the battery as they are installed. Also double check the battery door. There should be 2 small metal strips that make contact with the batteries as well.

If polarity is being observed (see manual to double check), and the metal strips are both present, then it is likely that one of the contacts on the battery door or inside the camera are corroded, or perhaps broken. In either case, contact Minolta for repair assistance, or battery door replacement.

Camera won't turn on. It hasn't been used in some time and the batteries seemed corroded. We replaced the batteries, but the battery chamber sticks and the camera still doesn't work.

If the batteries seemed corroded, you can bet the contacts are also. If you're lucky, after cleaning the contacts and the entire interior of the battery compartment and inserting a fresh set of batteries (not the ones you've already used in the dirty camera, but a new set), the camera will turn on and function properly.

What's more likely to happen, unfortunately, is that the above will not work because the corrosion has spread to the interior of the camera. In that case, it may be time to consider replacing the camera. And in the future, remove the batteries if you're not going to be using the camera for longer than a couple of weeks.

It wont power up at all. I have tried batteries,

1 - Check the battery contact and make sure the batteries in the flash are good.
2 - check the plug for the turbo, make sure it is not damaged, as well as, the high voltage plug on the 580 flash. If those contacts look dirty or mushroom shaped, you will nee the flash repaired.
3 - obviously make sure the turbo is charged

Camera won't come on

Open the camera and remove the batteries. Use the eraser on the end of a pencil to reach up inside the camera and gently clean the battery contacts. Be careful not to bend the contacts. Don't use a lot of pressure or a lot of scrubbing, just let the slight abrasiveness of the pencil eraser do the cleaning. Use a pencil with a good clean eraser, not one with a dried out, hard, old eraser. Hold the camera in the normal upright position and reach in from the bottom with the pencil, so all of the eraser bits and dirt fall out of the camera. Check that there are no dirt or eraser bits left inside after you are done cleaning.

Clean the contacts on the battery compartment door the same way.

Hope this helps. It fixed my vivitar 5385 that would not turn on, and had the light blinking.
