problems with K5

13 years 9 months ago #2319 by riflemom
I'm having a little trouble with my Pentax K-5, I got it a few months back and it worked fine, but we moved to another house and it was put away – with the batteries still in, now when I try to use it, it makes a faint crackling noise and then shuts off, no lights or anything of the sort appear, just the noise, so I think that the batteries have messed up the solder in the circuits I was wandering if anyone knew how to go about fixing this problem, I've considered taking it apart and finding the loose solder but I'm not great with electrics and would probably do more damage. I also thought about heating it, to reset the solder, but I figured that was also a bad idea. Does anyone know how to fix it?

You can definately fix this problem. But first are you talking about the battery terminals inside the camera, or the ones on flap that connects the two batteries?

I think it's on the flap, I'm not sure though. I should take it apart and examine it better but I'm kind of scared to.
