Question about Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery will not hold a charge

Two months ago I was shooting on a short crocodile boat tour in Florida, well the guide thought it would be great to do a 180 in the middle of Everglades swamp as I was lining up a sweet shot!! Funny Guy!! Result being, I nearly slid out of the boat to become aligator food and the camera was nearly drenched. It got pretty wet, but was NOT submerged or soaked. I assumed that a high tech little piece of quality innovation could take this, provided I dried it our thoroughly, which I did. Ever since I have not been able to take more than 6 pics without the battery going flat. Steps I have taken to overcoem this 1. DAYS on the charger. Literally, I realized the only way to get ANY pics was to charge it constantly, so its always on the charger now. 2. I bought a new battery. No change, still goes flat after 10 or so shots, or being off the charger for more than an hour. PLease help!!

Camera + water is like wicked witch in Wizard of Oz. You are going to have to send your camera in and see if they can save it.

My bushnell tour v2 range finder is stuck on 1888 yards divided by 18 equals 888metres what do I do to fix this

I have a Bushnell Tour V2 that has worked very well for over 8 years and it just started doing the same thing with the frozen screen and 1888 yards. Since I just replaced the battery that I bought at a Pro Shop about 6 months ago I thought the battery was fine. I looked at the battery and did not recognize the brand so I went out and bought a new Copper Top Duracell and BANG it is working again just like new.

starting up is way to slow
fuel pump pressure down

if that all checks out
the 4 day to flat battery
parasitic draw from alternator ,

and disconnect the battery terminals

New battery just put boat in water always had a solar powered charger on battery took it off about a week ago today went to start boat battery dead. I do not know if it has altanator or what have a friend...

You will need to do 3 tests:
1 - you must find out if you have a short in the wiring: disconnect the + cable from the battery and put an ampermeter in there to close the circuit; if a current is detected it means that you have a short and it will drain the battery. To locate the short start disconnecting wires and look at the meter - when you will disconnect the wire that goes to the failed wire or part the current will stop flowing; find the faulty part and fix or replace it.
2 - you must find out if the alternator is charging the battery correctly: start the motor, wait for half an hour then measure the voltage on the battery. If it's below 14.1 volts then the alternator is failing and it will have to be replaced.
3 - you must find out if the battery is in good working order: after the second test has finished shut down the engine and disconnect the battery; wait one hour and measure it -if the voltage on it has dropped to below 11.8 volts then the battery has aged and it's no longer holding the charge so replace it.

I would try a new battery. How old is the battery? Your probably right about the battery not holding a charge.

Ive got a Razr phone and it's not charging??

the battery is no good, the battery charges but it can't hold the charge. This could be because of age or damage.
