Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W5 Digital Camera
Hello: My camera was operating fine earlier in the day as I took pictures ; it stayed on until I turned it off. Later that same day, when I turned it on and began to take pictures, after every shot: the camera would turn itself off. I thought that the batteries were getting low, so I turned it off and putted in two new AA alkaline batteries, but when I pressed the power on/off button, the camera did not come on. I got a second set of new AA alkaline batteries and placed them in the camera, but it still did not come on and it does not come on or power up, when I press the on/of button. What could be the problem? Please help. Thanks. Winwin
This happened to me too. I did some research and if you were using anything other than alkaline or NIMH batteries (I was using Nicd rechargables) it will fry the circuit board. That's Sony's way of making sure you use their rechargable batteries only (or buying costly alkaline). Our cameras are fried. Time for a new one.
