Having problems with your Nikon Digital Cameras ?

Have Nikon F3. Did not use for several months. Tried today - light meter and shutter do not work - checked & found good battery must be in camera - put in new batteries w/o success - Replacement batteries are Energizer 357/303 that I was told match chart for Varta V76PX that had been in camera. I'm "dead in the water" and don't know what to do next. Positive side of battery is up Towards lens)


Answers :

Well first off pheonix, is the motordrive still working, hopefully it is. if so then the only concern you may be encountering right now are the contacts for your Varta V76PX / 357's. few months of no operation may give enough moisture inside the camera and rust will start to form, it may not be visible on the outside of the battery contact but it could be inside. battery contact repair/replacement may not cause too much, so thats a good side.

\015\012if this is the problem (my boss had an D50 and stroed it without silica gel), the next time you store it, use a silica gel, or put one in the box/bag where it will be intalled. just a personal thought

I charged Energizer batteries on the Energizer Battery charger I bought. When I put them in my camera and turned it on, it read, " Warning!! Battery Exhausted." How can increase my battery life?

I received a Canon PowerShot A1100 IS as a Christmas present in 2009/10. Right from the start, it seemed to use batteries like they were going out of style. So, I bought good quality batteries and removed them between photo-taking sessions. Recently, while on a 2-week vacation, I went through 20 AA batteries (Energizer and Duracel)! Any advice or suggestions to rectify this inconvenient and highly wasteful problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Leta
