SOURCE: I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries

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 ..

SOURCE: only for use with compatible battery

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.

SOURCE: My camera says " use with a compatible battery"

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

I bought new batteries from local store (one from Walmart and one from Meijer) but both would not work in my Cybershot DSC-H55. On powering up, I get the message "For use with compatible battery...


the camera will only work with li-ion rechargeable batteries
any alkaline battery such as energizer will not work the camera unless you have the very expensive li ion batteries
also as with all batteries that can be recharged , you may have to charge for 4 hours before use

Battery for Sony DSC T-300


I bought a SONY DSC-S750 3 months ago. Since last week, when i turn the camera on, appears the message "for use with compatible battery only". The battery came with the camera. The camera was bought in a big store in Philadelphia. I WILL NEVER BUY A SONY CAMERA AGAIN. I already tried to reset, tried to remove the battery and the problem persists.

I have had my camera for over a year now without a problem. It is a Sony Cybershot 7.2 Megapixels. Everytime I turn it on a black screen and the message - "For Use with Compatible Battery Only"...


Hi
There is a sentence which i cannot figure out the your wrote in your initial description of your poblem. I think it is meant to be the error message you are getting here is what i read as part of
""For Use with Compatible Battery Only&quot"

Can you try and post it again. From your response i still have te suspicion it could be the batteries, but your error message will help.

Regards

W80 compatible battery problem


I just have that problem with my 2 year old w80 and I was getting the same message. I have a friend with the same camera type and try his battery pack on my camera and worked fine. I bought in Best Buy a new battery pack and is working as new again. I use my camera very heavy for inspections and seems to be that the battery life came to a end.

Camera powers off


Hello,
I think battery went on protection mode and if you give couple of hours rest to battery by take out from camera and place it on shelf. Hope this trick will work.
