    Same story...

  • Jenaliciousz Nov 05, 2008

    Mine also does this and my camera is less than a year old... My mother has the same one, and it also does this. We put the battery in the charge, the light comes on for a few seconds, then dies out. I can't use the camera because their is always just enough battery life for one or two pics before it will shut off. Very disappointed with Sony.

Can i charge my sony w320 with the usb cord. cause my camera didnt come with a charger.


No, the camera does not contain any charging circuitry. Connecting the USB port will drain the battery even faster, since the camera has to use juice to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

The camera should have come with a charger. You might want to contact the vendor from whom you purchased it. In addition, there are several third-party chargers available at

I replaced the battery. The new one keeps a charge and lets the ac adapter charge the battery. I plan on purchasing a new battery and recycling the old one.

DSC-F717 won't turn on


You are correct. The battery has lost it`s life.

Contact your nearest Sony dealer and ask them for the NP-F50 battery which I think your camera uses.

The reason why the battery still shows it is charging ( if your interested ) is due to the sensing cct - you will see your battery has three poles and not just 2. The sensing pin is faulty due to the buildt in PCB having a problem. The batteries probably are still ok inside, but the sensing cct does the actual charge control.

Best of luck.

Turning on may have killed it. however try this. Take the batteries and card out and leave the doors open Take a polythene bag and place in it a quantity of uncooked rice or salt tied into a suitable cloth. put the camera in and seal the bag. leave in a warm dry place for several days This may save it -or it may not.
