    My problem is much the same; camera will sometimes turn on, take one pic, then turns off. May occasionally take several photos before turning off - but the next time I try to turn it on, it will immediately turn off. So that varies. Bought a new battery, charged it fully overnight, but it still shows 'charging', after that time. Cleaned the contacts as best I could. The camera has always worked perfectly before; I use it about every other day, so it isn't sitting unused. Sometimes it will not turn on at all; other times, will show "accessing memory card" then turns off. Thanks for any advice! Julia

    Mine will not turn on. I've had the battiers tested OK. The charger checked out, OK. It does nothing. Thank you for any help to get it working.

I had a similar problem and it was a result of the battery not charging correctly. I bought the travel battery charger and an additional battery from amazon to see if maybe the battery was just old or just not charging. I figured out that the internal camera charging mechanism just wasn't working b/c the battery charged fine with the travel charger. I like the travel charger better and with two batteries I can charge one while the other is in use. I haven't had a problem since. When you buy the new battery you still have to charge it before it's first use. I hope this works for you as it did for me.

My DSC-F707 won't record images.


Sounds like the CCD has developed a fault. I had a F717 which had similar faults but this turned out to be a batch of faulty CCD's which I know the F707 shared. This maybe why Sony are not keen to get involved as it will cost them money. JVC had a similar problem with some of it's Camcorders using a similar CCD and they replaced them FOC even those well out of warranty. Keep trying with Sony and mention the CCD and serial number of the F707 and see if it is one of the faulty batch.

DSC-F707 Digital Camera Problem


I did the same thing. What I found out was that it's very important to charge a lithium battery completely on the first use. You probably took it off the charger too soon. If it's not completely charged on the first use it won't be able to hold any charge.
Sadly, I ended up having to buy another one and try again.
Sorry.

I also bought an aftermarket battery for my F707 on Ebay and got the same "for info...." message.

Sony digital dsc-f707 startup goes to "no memory stick"


Could be that the contacts on the camera are oxidised. Try cleaning the contacts with isopropyl alcohol and see if this helps. If not, it could indicate a circuitry problem. In this case, you'd probably be better off buying a new cam altogether!

DSC-F707 Shut Off


May I suggest you to do or have done following actions: Use a philipps size 0 screwdriver and open your camera body. Then look at all the flat cables, try and disconnect them thoroughly, rub them a little bit and reconnect them. Maybe if you have another digicam, it's a good idea to take pics of how the flat cables are connected and stacked, for easy re-assembly. All your problems sound like bad contacts. Maybe dust or corrosion... I bet your 707 can find a new youth!
