Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera
I bought a charger off of ebay & when I used it the first time it worked just fine. The second time I left it on the charger overnight & when I put it back in my camera, the camera wouldn't turn on at all. No lights or anything.. just like it's completely dead. I don't want to buy a new battery if the same thing might happen again. Could it be the charger or should I just get a new battery?
WELL, THERE ARE THINGS TO CONSIDER HERE. HOW OLD WAS THE BATTERY THAT YOU WERE CHARGING? IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE CHARGER HAS FAILED ALSO. IF YOU HAD A METER YOU COULD READ THE CHARGER TO SEE IF IT WAS PUTTING OUT A CHARGE. IF YOU DON'T, YOU HAVE TWO POSSIBILITIES. ONE IS BUY A NEW BATTERY AND USE IT AND THEN TRY TO CHARGE IT AND SEE IF THE CHARGER WORKS. THE OTHER IS SEE IF ANY OF YOUR FRIENDS HAVE A CHARGER YOU COULD CHARGE YOUR BATTERY ON TO SEE IF THE BATTERY TAKES A CHARGE. I WOULD SAY IT WOULD PROBABLY BE BETTER TO BUY THE BATTERY BECAUSE YOU COULD ALWAYS USE THE EXTRA BATTERY, OR IF YOUR PRESENT BATTERY HAS DIED, YOU WILL HAVE A REPLACEMENT.IF THE CHARGER IS BAD YOU CAN RETURN IT FOR A REFUND OR REPLACEMENT FROM THE SELLER AS DEFECTIVE. MOST SELLERS WILL REPLACE ANY BAD PRODUCTS. YOU CAN ALWAYS GAMBLE AND RETURN THE CHARGER NOW AS DEFECTIVE AND GET A REPLACEMENT AND THEN TRY TO CHARGE YOUR BATTERY AGAIN. SO, YOU HAVE MANY OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM. I HOPE THIS GIVES YOU SOME IDEAS, BUT IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, JUST REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217
