If you can't return the camera for service, my advice would be to close the battery compartment with tape. Not pretty but better than buying a new camera, I've done it a few times on old cameras and apart from cosmetics, works fine. Just make sure to use enough tape so the batteries won't fly out when using it.
Hi,the problem you are encountering is definately a power problem which is possibly from a broken little switch under the battery lid.Here is the solution;
1.Check the little switch beneath the battery lid,it might be missing or broken,if it's broken you have to solder it bact to its place with the help or a soldering iron,if its missing you have to purchase another one from a part shop.
2.A temporary solution(maybe permanent),you can jump a tiny connecting wire on the switch,which makes it on a constant on status. NOTE;by doing so,you won't have the battery lid detect function.The camera can be turned on even when the battery lid is open.
you could but the cost and time would not be worth it,just find you some gray electrical tape,works wonders,but make sure you press down real firm while putting a good solid peace on ok. good luck hope i helped.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 !!!
