Sony EX1R NO POWER THROUGH BATTERY
on Jan 10, 2015 at 5:11:17 am

Hello in here,

we have a big problem. While using our Sony EX1R the power suddenly simply went off. The camera still works when connecting the DC Power Supply, but with batteries the camera stays off. We have noticed that the battery release button is apparently broken. Does anyone here know if there is a connection between the power circuit and that release button or does it just simply block the battery from accientally slipping out?
We are on a ship and have no possibility of going to a repair store.
Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance for any advice available,

Heiko Knoll

There's no electrical connection with the release button but it does hold the battery tightly against the camera battery pins. Try pushing the battery against the pins with your fingers and see if that turns the camera on. If it does then try using a small wooden shim or something similar to keep the battery tight against the pins.

In any event you'll have to get the release button fixed.
