Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Won't turn on at all

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

Samsung N145 Plus battery charge failure


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Won't turn on!


Hi,
Well it's possible that the seller was trying to charge up the power on the camera by using the USB cable connected to his/her computer. It won't charge this way, it uses a rechargeable battery (part number NP-45) and a charger (part number PC-45).
It's also possible that the battery is in the wrong way, or that it is not charging because the charger terminal needs cleaning.
Try charging the battery fully when it arrives, after cleaning the charger and take it from there.
Here's the User Manual:

Hope this gives you some hope :D

ps Let me know how you get on when it arrives.. sometimes 2 heads are better than one :)

If you read one of my previous answers on a dead Cam, I mentioned on board fuses. They are tiny and usually white with a letter on them like "A". Check it with a meter for open circuit, if it has no reading then ther lies the first problem. Second problem is what caused the first problem...could have been moisture. Make sure your battery charger can accept 230v even though it steps down to something like 6.9 or 7.8v
Chargers are quite cheap on ebay etc.

Battery won't charge after being replaced


The charger might be bad. Or then the pdas connector is bad, or the motherboard is damaged.

to find out is your charger working you could use a tester to test it or another pda.

If you could get some power into the pda you could use the bootloader to test the device. Its been years since I had my 3850.

Il have to find instructions on how to get to the bootloader but test the other things first.

Sidekick 3 does not receive charge


All right. The Sidekick 3 has a known charging issue that crops up on some phones. If you are under warranty, call t-mobile and get it fixed. If not, the repair is going to run 100+ to fix the charging port.

A fast and simple solution is to by an external charger and an extra battery. They run about 30 bucks total on ebay.

Check out Sidekick Battery Chargers.

Be glad the battery is easily removable. The original sidekick and sidekick II had internal batteries that are a pain in the butt to remove!!!
