Battery

Discussion in 'Canon EOS' started by debra_phelps, Dec 31, 2012.

  1. my battery has die inside camera. went to take it out to charge and it will not come out around moving the little holder out of the way. how can i get it out?
     
  2. It'd help to know which camera, Debra.
     
  3. Alas, don't see much to go on here. As Keith suggests, the specific camera model might be useful info. I also am wondering: how old is the battery pack and has the camera been in frequent use or has it sat in a closet for a year and half? Under the latter condition I could believe a failed battery might have leaked some gunk and corroded some mechanical parts.
    In general, providing detailed information in a question produces better answers.

  4. Did you read your manual?
     
  5. Well, a drill and a wood screw usually will work.

    Hmm, I guess if the battery is really truly dead it's OK, but if there's some charge left it might get a bit hot (plus the possibility of scattering lithium compounds around (of course we don't yet know what technology it is, given the dearth of detail).
     
  7. Maybe try sticking some really sticky tape to it and pulling? Maybe superglue something to it and pull?
    If it's a lithium battery, it probably has a latch.
     
  8. I like hot glue. a little less risky than setting a screw into a (presumably) Li-Ion cell. Even 'dead' (as in to low a charge to turn on the camera), a lithium Ion battery can easily contain enough energy to complete destroy the camera, if released rapidly (BTDT).

    If I'm reading the OP correctly, the problem is the latch aka: "the little holder"

    That's my take too, but I also find myself wondering if Debra might be talking about the "clock" battery.
    In any event, some information from Debra would help.
     
  11. On my EOS40D I believe I could grab the BP511 pack with long needle nose pliers for some extra oomph, but it may nest or seat differently in different models. Alas, so far we are missing way more useful problem details than we have!
