Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F505V Digital Camera

1 Answer

Won't turn on

I just purchased a new battery, because the old one wouldn't hold a charge. Camera was fine for a couple of times, but now it won't always turn on. We have tried it with battery and with a/c adapter. We have to play with it for 2-3 minutes to get the thing to turn on. Once it is on it seems ok, but it is very tempermental. We have a lot of trouble especially if it is cold, but still within the temp range to operate. We have made sure that the battery is full charged, also tried the "hotifx" by taking the battery out for 2-3 minutes. Sometimes it works, others not.

I haven't turned the camera on for a couple of years. I've tried charging the battery, but I can't get it to power up. Do I need to replace battery or is it something else?


If the rechargeable 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. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Hi, It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new battery.

My camera wont stay on it bleeps once then turns off


That sounds like your battery could be dead/not hold a charge. If you've charged your battery already and your camera still won't stay off and turns off right away, it's time to purchase a new battery for your Samsung TL105.

You can purchase replacement batteries quite cheap here:
