Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Powering the E-510 DSLR


\015 This camera does not have a DC power socket. It only accepts the BLM-1 7.4volt lithium battery which takes 5 hours to charge. You can also buy the LBH-1 battery case which accepts 3 x CR-123A (3 volt) batteries. I am thinking of buying one of those and connecting DC power to the internal connectors inserting it into the camera's battery slot for prolonged desk top sessions.\015\012My problem is: why does the case and the BLM-1 battery have 3 connectors to the camera "+ - and T" and how do the CR123A's provide the "T" connection?\015\012Can you help so that I don't buy a LBH-1 in vain.\015\012Many thanks if you can\015\012\015\012Tronic (Dave Heard - South Africa)\015

Answers :

The T is the thermister that the battery charger uses to determine the battery temperature and make sure it's not being damaged by high temperatures, you can safely ignore it when you hook up an external supply, it won't cause any errors on the camera or anything.

If you want to hook up a DC adapter to your camera just make sure it's a well regulated (a switching power supply should be just fine, like a wall adapter only they're typically much lighter weight but adapt AC to DC) and is the correct voltage. The reason I recommend a switching power supply is that traditional wall transformers only provide the rated voltage at rated load, meaning if you hook up a 12VDC 2A wall adapter to something that draws 1/2A it will have a significantly higher voltage that it has stamped on its case.

My wife has a Nikon D40 DSLR. The battery door will not stay closed. If she gets an external grip does the innternal battery still need to be accessed by the camera or will this solve the problem of not maintaining battery power?

My Samsung CX1L DSLR camera is telling me that there is no battery power (the flashing battery sign on the top display) even when I've put new batteries in. I'm guessing there's a bit of a dodgy connection somewhere, but could I sort this myself, or would I have to get it repaired somewhere?


First, try cleaning the battery contacts with an ink pen type eraser, not a pencil eraser, but one that is made to erase ink. These are a little gritty and usually white, not red rubber.If this does not work, and you are sure they are NEW batte ... Samsung Digital Cameras

My Nikon D70 DSLR was fine when last used but after around three weeks when brought out to use again, the LED which signifies writing to the card is flashing - whether the power is on or off. Removing the CF card and reinserting it makes no difference. While this light is flashing the camera will not switch on or show any information in the LCD. It is about three years old and has been faultless until now. Any suggestions?
