external power source fro Bauer s 715 xl camera?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried making their own external power source for a Bauer 715?

 

I recently rolled the dice on a relatively inexpensive Bauer 715 and the good news is that it does run.

 

...The bad news is that it only runs if I hold the battery compartment in the perfect position. One problem is that the white plastic "battery housing" or battery holder is missing so the batteries move around quite easily. I may have at least temporarily conquered that with some tape.

 

Anyone familiar with Bauer 715 probably already knows that the lid for the battery compartment is broken and won't stay attached without some extra help. I could try ordering parts but I wonder if anyone has tried getting around these problems by simply creating an external battery belt or battery pack. This idea was actually suggested by an employee at the local hobby shop and it sounds easier to me than fussing around with spare parts.

 

Looking inside the battery compartment it appears the first step to getting deeper inside the camera are 3 yellow/gold flat-head screws. I can get at them but they don't seem easily moved. Might they be glued in?

 

The camera runs off of 6 AA batteries, so I think that means 9 volts are required. So maybe get a battery holder for 9 volts (holds 6AAs) and wire that into the camera once the contacts 9for the AA batteries are removed ??
