I also have one that will not turn on, with either internal or external power. Would you be interested in selling the unit? Maybe between the two us, I could get one of them working?

Left batteries in marina 300 2 way radio .batteries wont work .can it be repaired?

yes but usually damage from leaking batteries are the battery connections , tabs and wires which can be replaced and or cleaned up to make connections workable --when battery damage exceeds the battery compartment and into the electronics [motherboard and other circuits] usually the price of repair can be close to buying a new one

Remove batteries first?

The short answer is yes, but if the batteries are left in for long periods of time without being used they may leak.

My SentrySafe will not open even after changing the batteries. Where can I get it repaired?

Sounds like all you might need is a new Sentry Safe battery pack to hold the batteries. As these sometimes short out from leaking batteries.

I have a Nikon Speedlight SB-600 that needs repair. The flash does not operate. I believe there is no connection made with batteries.

Check the battery contact make sure they are clean. If a battery leaked, even a little battery fluid on the contact then that could be the problem.

Not holding charge

It is likely that your rechargable batteries are no longer capable of taking a charge and have become degraded to the point they need to be replaced.

Without a model number, I can't provide you with the disassembly steps to open up the shaver and the correct replacement batteries.

Once the rechargable batteries have degraded to the point that they cannot hold even a minimal charge, it could become possible that the shaver won't operate even with the electric power cord connected directly with a power outlet. Hence, it is a good idea to replace the batteries soon to also prevent damage that can occur to the internal electronics by leaking batteries

You can go to and look for the batteries for your model number. You can also contact them directly to get an estimate for having them do the repair service, if you wish.

Hope you find this info Very Helpful and best regards!

Laser not working

Sometimes you can repair an item yourself. Using sandpaper or a nail file, remove all of the "gunk" from the contacts that the leaking batteries left. You can then wipe the contacts with a little bit of alcohol to clean them up and your level should be a good as new.

False low battery warning

Same thing happened to me when I used alkaline batteries. Have you tried fully charged NiMH? If not you may have a "leak". Your next option is the service center.

Repair of battery-operated wall clock

We had the same problem with our wall clock, but it was due to corrosion from a dead battery. The battery acid leaked inside and disrupted the connection between the metal contacting the batteries and the circuit (the one with the copper coil). We took everything out cleaned the contact points with acetone (nail polish remover). After that we had to bend the contact heads up just a little bit so they would contact the circuit again (I guess we bent them down a little when we were cleaning it). It worked just fine after that. I know it sounds intimidating to take apart a clock and put it back together but you're going to throw it out anyway. Just give it a try. It was kinda fun. Think of it as a puzzle. If you can't fix it, I imagine you can get a new motor at any hobby store or Michaels.
