This is actually a faulty switch located in the front assembly. Sony has a revised switch with better contacts. The switch is continually turning on by itself. Sony reccomends that servicers replace 3 switches at one time; the camera-on, play-on and the record standby switches.

Ways to increase laptop battery life


Let the thing drain completely down to nothing.  When the pop up window says you gotta plug the thing in, just ignore it and do your thing.  When the computer shuts off by itself, hold down the power button for 5-10 more secs to fully drain the thing.  Then plug your computer in and let the battery charge for a good 6-8 hours.  Then unplug the charger and let the battery sit and cool down for about 15 minutes.  This is called conditioning the battery and should be done once every other charge.  Also, its a good idea to turn off your wi-fi if your not using it, bring the brightness down on your screen, and close any non-essential applications that are running.  Cheers old chap.

Battery level don't show on display.


hi friend,

follow these steps
  1. Turn off your LCD display screen. I know this is hard—who likes shoving their face against the camera to compose a shot through the little viewfinder? But the LCD screen single-handed-ly drains a lot of power.
  2. Minimize the picture preview to the least amount of time possible—usually one second. This uses less LCD screen time, thus less power.
  3. Dim the brightness on your LCD screen. A dimmer display extends battery life by consuming less power to light the screen. This might make the display harder to see, but usually only in direct sunlight.
  4. Set the power saver to the least amount of time. Power saver lets your digital camera “sleep” when not in use, but doesn’t shut it down entirely. To “wake up” your digital camera, simply click the shutter button.
  5. Use your zoom as little as possible. The motor that moves the lens uses power. This also goes for repeatedly turning your digital camera on and off if it has an extend able lens.
  6. Turn off the continuous focus. Again, constantly using motors and electronics to ready your shot drastically minimizes battery life.
  7. Don’t push the shutter button half-way down until you’re ready to shoot. Pushing the shutter button (constantly resetting and refocusing) will drain battery life.
  8. Use the flash only when necessary. Your digital camera’s “auto flash” option should take care of this, but make sure your flash isn’t going off in broad daylight.
  9. Don’t delete pictures from your digital camera unless necessary. This consumes power. Wait until you download the pictures to your computer before deleting.
  10. This one’s basic, but charge your battery often. Lithium ion batteries, which most digital cameras use, don’t have “battery memory” like older alkaline. In fact, lithium ions work better and last longer if charged completely and regularly.

thank u for using fixya

How long to charge cordless battery for Oster Power Pro Ultra


Usually it is recommended that you leave it plugged in to charge a minimum of 12 hours before you even use it. Then, once you unplug it to use it, keep it completely unplugged and use it until it dies completely and shuts itself off. Then, and ONLY then, plug it back in and charge it again for a minimum of 8 to 12 hours and do not use it while it is charging! Once you've passed the 8-12 hours, you can unplug it again and start using it again. After you do that, you should be able to use it for a few days before it dies and you will have given the battery a "memory". After that, you don't really need to have it plugged in more than a few hours to fully charge after being drained. It's always best to let the batteries fully drain and shut off before plugging back in to preserve it's life.

Batteries wear out quickly -- after 6 - 10 photos. I've tried a variety of brands and quality - both rechargeable and non-rechargeable.


Hi there Jeroldine.

Battery drain the one of the top things that make people upset over cameras. It siits number one over lens errors. The only thing I can say is that your LCD screen is the culprit. The LCD screen is a vampire that sucks batteries quicker than zooming the lens. There is nothing that you can do about it. The amps that a camera uses during normal operation is pretty severe.
You can do some things to help lessen the impact on your batteries.
First. Turn off your LCD screen. Use the viewfinder to sight in all your shots. You can save up to 75 percent of your battery life if you turn it off and use the viewfinder. Second is...zoom less. What usually happens is, you start to take a shot, and you want to get closer, so you so you zoom in. Then you might decide that maybe you have zoomed too much. Then you wind up zooming back out. - Instead, try and get closer to your subject if you can.
There is no magic fix for battery drain. Just remember that everytime you perform a function on your camera, you drain the battery. Hope this helps.

Camcorders that run on 3 AAA bateries, how long do the batteries last????


I assume we're not discussing the Sony DSC-W55 since that doesn't use AAA batteries.
The battery life varies depending both on the camcorder and the type of batteries. In general, lithiums will last longer than alkalines, which will last longer than a single charge on NiMHs. On cameras that give you the option, you'll use less juice shutting off the display and using the viewfinder. Many manuals will give you estimates of battery life, but these are estimates only, the battery life also depends on how YOU use your camcorder.

Battery life?


Using the LCD viewfinder to compose images drains the power capacity of alkaline batteries very quickly. Instead, use the Optical viewfinder to compose your images. Under normal operating conditions using the Optical viewfinder, a set of AA-size alkaline batteries should last for about 35 images. Additional tips for extending battery life: * Use the AC adapter to review images on the LCD. * Use the AC adapter to review images on your TV. * Disable Quick Review mode. * For longer battery life, use one of the following types of batteries: o High capacity alkaline (a new product on the market as of Jan 2000) o Lithium o NiMh (Nickel Metal Hydride) rechargeable. o NiCd (Nickel-Cadium)
