SOURCE: Canon PowerShot A510 "change the batteries"

This may be a bit late, but I may have found a solution for this problem. I haven't tested it thoroughly yet so it might me a coincidence.
What I did:
Screw off the small metal plate that connects to the batteries.
Put some tape on the metal parts that are underneath it (watch out there's a spring in there and it can 'jump' away rather easily). Screw the plate back on.
I put in the same batteries in the camera as when it said "Change the batteries" but now they work (for quite a while and not empty).
I hope it works for you too. :)

SOURCE: Lava Lamp is new, not working, spring loose on bottom, no blobs

The lamp is made of wax and alcohol. Try inverting the bottle several times. The aim is to get the wax to fall to the bottom. Try shaking it, especially when the fluid is warm. This may help break the wax up to where it can begin cycling on its own.....careful, though, you don't want to burn your hand. I have done this several times, and it works!

hello lucy... you most likely have some corrosion in the outdoor component. Remove the batteries from the outdoor component and clean the battery contacts with the eraser end of a common pencil. Reinstall the batteries and then give it up to 8 hours to start reporting accurately again. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

How do I change melodies?

The melodies should change each hour on it's own. You can change the melodies manually by pressing the demo button repeatedly. If the songs don't change each hour, you might try new batteries. I'd recommend Japanese batteries like Fuji, or Toshiba. I use Varta which is a German brand battery that's equivalent to either Duracell, or Energizer, and have no problems. If you've had the clock for a number of years, or have had it hanging in direct sunlight, or near a heat source it could be in need of professional assistance, and or repair. (if possible)

Seiko clock battery corrosion.

Use vinegar to clean out the battery compartment. It will neutralize the battery acid. Then take what is left of the springs and pull them out so they make contact with the new batteries. Sounds like you got a hold of some bad batteries.

My seiko musical wall clock doesn't play music anymore

To test your Seiko Melodies in Motion Clock:

1) Check the volume knob in the back of the Seiko clock to make sure the volume has not been adjusted all the way down.
2) Make sure the on / off switch is set to on.
3) If it is extremely dark in the room, the clock will not play, it has a light sensor. Make sure the room is well lit.
4) There are separate batteries usually that operate the clock and the music. Change the batteries paying special attention to any acid / corrosion caused by old batteries. Clean out any acid and it should play. Also, be careful not to touch the positive or negative contacts on the new batteries, as this could inhibit proper connection.

If you have done each step above and it is still not operating, your clock is defective. Contact Seiko Service Center directly at: 800-722-4452 extension 3.

If you have had the clock less than a year, and it was purchased from an authorized dealer, it is under warranty, and any repairs will be free. Otherwise, there may be a charge for the repair.
