Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828 Digital Camera

Open Question

Won't turn on

My F828 just refused to turn on one day. I thought the battery was dead so I put it on the charger. When I reinstalled the battery it still wouldn't come on. I checked the owner's manual and it said to put the reset button. I did that and it still won't turn on. I know the battery is good. Anybody else experienced this problem? Other than this the camera has worked flawlessly.

Any ideas?

Hello all! I am the one who took the pics of my class and then my wonderful camera stopped working. Before I sent $181 to Sony just to have them looka t the camera. The online helper suggested that I take the batteries out, press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds, let the camera sit for a few minutes without batteries, then place new "good" batteries in it. Well thats what I did and taadaa IT WORKED. I am so excited that I save $181 and my camera is working just as if it was brand new. I hope this solution helps someone!

I had a similar problem. Mt battery was dead but showed a charge when I put it in the camera. See if you can borrow a battery from another owner or camera shop and try it.

I cant turn my sony f828 camera on

Oops. You should know, putting the wrong voltage on a electronic device, can cause serious damage. Just one volt more, can be 20 or 30 percent too much. And that can cause lots and lots of damage. Try to remove the battery, and check if the battery is still o.k.. Use a multi meter, to check if the voltage is just a little above the voltage printed on the battery. Try charging the battery on an external charger. And shane charged, try if the camera works. If not, I'm afraid only a Sony certified repair centre can help you. And I think I can cost you. Because they know when the damage is caused by an over voltage.
Lets hope you don't need Sony.

When I put it on the charger it indicates that it is charging but when I take it off it won't turn on at all.

Hello! Does it turn on when you have the charger plugged in? If so, you have a dead battery. The laptop maybe indicate that battery is charging, but if she is dead, it won't give you enough power to turn on. Try that!

If it works with a charger on, you need to replace the battery. Need any more help?

My samsung gt 15500 won't charge up. It was working fine 2 days ago and yesterday i brought the usb lead to work with me to charge it with my computer. Nothing happened when i plugged it in so i...

If the phone was totally dead before it refused to charge initially, then the refusal to charge is due to the fact that there was no residual charge left to bring it to a charge, because the battery completely died.
To fix it, kick start the charging process.
Remove the battery, and using a universal charger (desktop charger) charge the battery for say 10 minutes, before re- inserting the battery to the phone and continuing with the normal charging process.
If this does not work out, then problem is with the charging port. It has to be replaced. This can be done by nearby local phone repairers.
Hope it helps?

My cell phone is dead.

If it's not specifically made for your phone, it wouldn't work. some chargers may have the same charger jack, but were'nt made for your model of phone.
