Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V3 Digital Camera
I can not get my camera to power-up to take pictures use using battery power. The camera is dead unless I have it connected to the charger via direct current. When connected to DC the camera works fine. I have checked to make sure battery power is fine. I have taken it to National Camera exchange ...technician shrugs shoulders and says don't know what to tell you... but I have a great camera over here......
I really like the this camera but needing a long extension cord is quite unweildy... what should I do? Send it to Sony begging for help? or buy a new camera? any ideas?
Thank you, that worked - i took the battery out for 15 seconds and when I put it back it, it turned right on.
