Question about Olympus Camedia E-20N Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys. Jamming it in several times when I change batteries sometimes helps, but often the camera will stop working in the middle of a shoot and indicate the battery is discharged. A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor autofocusing) the camera is great!

I've never had that problem, all I can suggest would be to fiddle with the contacts in the grip, or put a folded bit of paper behind the battery before you put on the little door to push it in further.

How do I remove and reinstall a battery in an 850? (96)

Assuming it's still the factory set up.

Remove the two 10mm bolts that hold the cables on and remove the battery cables (negative/black cable first).

at the base of the battery tray there is a hold down retainer. the retainer is like a half moon piece with a tab that hangs over the base of the battery to lock it in place.

looking at the car it will be on the front left side edge of the battery.
Lift the retainer out using a rotating motion towards the battery while pulling up on it. BE CAREFUL!!! it can take some force to remove and when it does your hand will hit the nearest bracket there.

to reinstall sit the battery into the back edge of the tray like sliding in a baking tray into a low oven. this will allow the battery housing to fit under the back lip of the battery tray.

Slide the battery all the way towards the outside of the fender (towards your right) and reattach the hold down by rotating downwards while pushing down.

reattach the battery cables and you're done. now hopefully you have the radio code... if not go by the dealer and they can get it for you (if you still have the factory radio).

As a side note, if the cables are badly corroded they can be cleaned with normal hot (almost boiling) water and a light brush. we use the hot water out of the coffee maker. when clean apply some battery protector (from any parts store) to keep the cables from oxidizing.

Fix that Jamming Slide in your Nikon CoolScan 5000ED / SF-210 Slide Feeder

I balked when someone whispered this tip to me; the thought of putting foreign objects into my Nikon CoolScan 5000ED slide scanner with its SF-210 slide feeder seemed asking for trouble.

After about a thousand slides worth of experience, and many batches that seemed to jam every other slide, I gave it a try and boy did it do the trick.

The SF-210 slide feeder works flawlessly with newer, thicker, plastic slide mounts, but if you are archiving and digitizing older, cardboard slides like I am then here's what wasn't printed in the CoolScan user's manual:

Take a AAA battery and place it in rear, left side of the slide feeding tray as pictured below.


The slides will fan out nicely, and your Nikon CoolScan will no longer try to load more than one at a time. Instead it will load them one at a time, 50 per tray, and you can actually walk away from it and let it do its job, just the way you intended to when you bought the SF-210 slide feeder attachment!

I hope that helps.

Oops, it does not have to be, at times, I meant, supposed battery failure

If the battery contacts/pins for your phone/tab are not making contact well with the battery terminals/ will experience such, constantly.

If the battery does not sit/fit well in its compartment, you will still experience same as you do at present. This is because, the battery is making partial contact with the terminals/pins.

Check these; whether your battery sits well and fits perfectly in its compartment inside your phone/tab.

Check whether the terminals are contacting well

Aside of these, you may need to either replace your cellphone/tablet's battery and watch what happens.

My system is having problems communicating with the battery

What message you are getting??

Possible problems:
1. The battery not seated correctly. Try reconnecting the battery.
2. The battery contacts got dirty or oxidized and the battery is not making good connection with the motherboard. Try reconnecting the battery a few times.
3. If reconnecting the battery doesn't help, most likely the battery is bad and has to be replaced.
4. If you replaced the battery but the problem still exists, this is motherboard related failure. Apparently the battery charging circuit has failed. In this case the whole motherboard has to be replaced (or repaired on component level).

Replace battery

The battery hold-down is a plastic block at the base of the battery. If you look on the side of the battery opposite where the cables connect, you will see a really long bolt sticking up with an 8mm hex head. (SEE PICTURE BELOW) That is your hold-down bolt. It is designed so that when you unscrew the bolt from the battery tray, you simply lift up on the bolt and it will pull the plastic block up with it.

When reinstalling the battery, make sure you slide the battery base under the lip in the battery tray opposite where the hold-dow goes, then install the hold-down.

Remote Control Altec Lansing IM600 - Battery

Turn the remote upside down. At the bottom, there is a slot that opens the battery tray and a series of grooves that are part of a clip that releases the tray. Insert the fingernail of your thumb into the grooves and the fingernail of your index finger into the slot. Ease the grooves (clip) toward the middle of the remote and slide the tray out. There is a ridge in the tray that matches the battery only when the battery is in the proper position. Slide the tray back in. If the remote doesn't work, you've probably inserted the battery in the wrong position.
