may be batteries you brought are old try with normal ( not rechargeble ) batteries. it would not last long but you can take atleast 30 to 50 photos. if it works it means new batteries are faulty.this type of problem i never saw in camera.use SANYO harmolattice HR-3UQ batteries.
may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery
contacts inside the camera which can
prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.
Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and
wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into
the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full
charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time for new batteries, or the
camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
try downloading the drivers from sony first
that is if you have already downloaded the proper usb drivers for your system in which case other usb device are still working
also it is possible that the usb port itself has gone bad or is in conflict with another driver assuming your using windows to check this you can start by telling me which version of windows you are using but more than likely the proper camera drivers will solve the issue
Assuimn there is nothing on the lens[I would not think this is the case as it would not show as a distict spot
Not ne fora DIY or a repairshop this is a a failure of the CCD.
Depending on the age of the camera and model this may qualify for replacement, as there was a reported CCD issue at one time
Either that or Sony may offer a replacement at a good discount.
