Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help resolve your problem.

Customer:

in what device are you trying a new battery

JACUSTOMER-0koshw14- : Panasonic dmc ft20 camera
Customer:

the problem is now with the battery, try ti use a cotton swab dipped in alcohol and try to clean the contacts inside the camera battery case

JACUSTOMER-0koshw14- : Already done that
Customer:

if you have already tried that then the problem is with the cameras internal board which consumes battery power the circuit has to be checked.

Customer:

how old is the camera?

Customer:

is it under warranty?

JACUSTOMER-0koshw14- : 18 months old no warranty
Customer:

I am sorry to say the camera needs a repair there are components on the circuit board which needs to be replaced that handles power section like semi diodes and capacitors.

JACUSTOMER-0koshw14- : Well that was wate of ¬£20 ūüėí
Customer:

we can only tell you by our experience with the devices as you know that the camera is a compact device and it doesn't have user accessible parts which can be removed and replaced they are all sensor based so we either replace it or repair it. I hope that makes some sense.

Customer:

New camera price is £99.99 inc VAT

Customer:

Repair will cost £50.00

Customer:

choice is yours.
