SOURCE: sony cybershot problem- for use with compatible battery only

Try clean contacts of camera for battery and contacts of the battery also, specially the middle one - it is for communication between camera and circuit inside the battery. If the problem persists, try use another battery in your camera, or your battery in other compatible product - you determine this way if the problem is inside the battery (I hope, it is cheaper) or inside the camera.

SOURCE: my sony cybershot dsc-s780 can be turned on but

My cyber-shot dsc s780 did the whole "Use with compatible battrey" thing and I gave it the ole Fonz on the side of the camera closest to the battery and it seemes to be working now. I'm certainly no professional, however, everything needs a good smack upside the head once in a while! :)

Sony Cybershot Dsc-505

Are you sure it is your charger and not the battery? (Batteries)

You could buy a new Sony charger, but there are lots of universal camera battery chargers, that won't cost as much and you can use it for every battery from every camera. Pick the right one and you have a charger for years to come, whatever your new camera will be and how big or small the batteries are.

I just bought a GT Max battery charger for cameras and camcorders ( digital, also came with car adapter). I have a Sony Cybershot DSC W180 digital camera. It is supposed to be compatiable with my battery (...

Try to plug it into the Sony Camera and if it doesn't fit, it is not compatible with that camera. Sometimes, chargers don't have manuals.

What kind of charger does a Sony Cybershot DSCW80 7.2MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and Super Steady Shot need


The DSCW80 Camera is supplied with the BC-CSGB Battery Charger which can be used to charge the battery of the Camera by inserting it to the charger.
You may also use the ACLS5K AC Adapter (not supplied) for charging the battery by using the Multi-connector cable of the Camera.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

Error message "use compatible battery only"

I had this same problem and also have a post on fixya on how to fix it and many ppl have emailed me saying thanks. it worked for me and many others. i'll sum it up
on the battery is 3 gold or silver contacts they are small squares u need to take a fork or bend a paper clip and jump all 3 together for 3 seconds. after doing this put the battery in the charger for 1 hour and thats it. you can now use it again.
I'll explain. the cause is putting the battery in the charger backwords. this messes up the data in the battery and makes it not work in your camera. The battery has data stored in it so it will only work with your model camera. it gets this data from the charger. Shorting out all 3 contacts on the battery for 3 seconds deletes the data stored in the battery and putting it back in the charger re-writes the correct data. If this worked for you send me a thanks! :-)
