Question about Sony Cameras
I am getting a message for use with compatible battery only this has just started to say this. i have bought a new battery and the same message is coming up.
New lithium ion batteries may have different formulation which older cameras can not use.

you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it ..it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power plug.....so in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..

Try clean contacts of camera for battery, specially the middle one - it is for communication between camera and circuit inside the battery.

SOURCE: Compatible Battery error message
Try clean contacts of camera for battery and contacts of the battery also, specially the middle one - it is for communication between camera and circuit inside the battery. If the problem persists, try use another battery in your camera, or your battery in other compatible product - you determine this way if the problem is inside the battery (I hope, it is cheaper) or inside the camera.

Sometimes its because the battery terminal is somewhat dirty. I would try cleaning
the inside of the battery compartment (where the metal contacts are) with a
q-tip dipped in alcohol. Let it dry (blow on it to assist the drying process). Then give it
a try. If that doesn't work then you will probably need a replacement board because
the sensor is bad. Have a qualified Tech take a look at the camera
