Should be the batteries. I only use rechargeables. Never had a problem.

My mini 8 has all lights flashing. Put in the right batteries but the flights are still on and the flim keeps spitting out....

Hi! Please try this out:
1. Leave the mini 8's lens open.
2. Then try to put on the batteries again. (with the lens open.)
3. If it doesn't work, then try it again.

*It's important to see first if your battery is not defective or it is not leaking, and it is recommended to use high-quality batteries like Duracell.


Hope this will help. :)

Grundig Sattelit 800 radio-batt blinks w/new Duracell Alkakines from Costco(so they are fresh; good till 2024)

I have talked to the gentleman who designed this radio and he said that in order to correct this problem two pins on the inside of the front panel must be shorted while 6.2 volts dc is fed to the battery terminals. The whole radio must be disassembled to reach these pins, I have not been able to find a service manual to help me locate said pins. If anyone out there can find out where to get a service manual please contact [email protected]

Battery usage?

Duracell are the equivalent of several cheapo batteries and
they dont leak! Cheapo batteries if they leak can damage your
camera really badly..dont ever leave them in the camera.
has the camera got a socket for an AC adaptor

Do watch batteries leak?

And destroy the watch? Yes, but not as much as regular batteries do. The old alkaline batteries in flashlights are notorious for leaking, I have seen a couple times when the little batteries leak, One of my calculators leaked, but I caught it just in time. Cleaned up the contacts, and it works fine. If the battery did leak, send the whole watch and battery back to the manufacturer, they should replace it. Duracell has sent me a dozen flashlights and numerous battery coupons for leaking batteries. Hope this helps.

RCA wireless headphones WPH141 Batteries leaking

Good Quality new batteries will not leak.
Excessive heat might cause a battery to leak.
Batteries should not be stored in a place that will expose them to high temperatures. The same would be true for wireless headphones with batteries in them. The dashboard of a car would be a very bad place. Shelf life of batteries is limited. New batteries and low temperatures should help.
