Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

BATTERY I have an older DSC-50 which works great...I bought the new W-170 and they both use the NP-BG1 batteries. I have used the newer battery in the DSC-50 camera and now when I try to use the orignal older battery my camera tells me (For use with compatible battery only) and then shuts down. I can still use the new battery in both cameras. I get the same response from the W-170 with the older battery. Battery has been great and has been holding a good charge... Any ideas? Removed memory stick and battery several times, but no help....

    NP-BG1 battery has chip inside to provide stored charge data to camera and I think that data is corrupted. Do not use battery for couple of days and let that chip reset. 
    Some times complete discharge work to reset chip in battery.

I found a lot of chargers for this battery (and batteries too) by searching Amazon for "NP-BG1 charger". There are also cheap universal chargers, which will charge any of the small lithium batteries found in cameras and phones, on Amazon or eBay.

Dear all, After approx 1 year not using the Sony dsc w55 battery is completely empty and does not recharge after connecting to the computer with the usb cable which came with the camera. The camera was...


The DSC-W55 does not contain any charging circuitry. Connecting the camera to a computer makes the battery drain faster, since the camera must use juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). You need to use the supplied battery charger to charge the battery.

If you need a battery charger, here are some:

Lcd will not turn on on a DSC-W50.


1. Ensure that you are using either Battery Model # NP-BG1 or NP-FG1 with the Camera.

2. Try using different Battery to determine whether the issue is with the Camera or with the Battery.

3. Try to Power reset the Camera by removing the battery from the Camera and inserting it after 1 minute.

If the issue still persists with different battery also then Service may requires to resolve it.

Battery Problem


I bought a SONY DSC-S750 3 months ago. Since last week, when i turn the camera on, appears the message "for use with compatible battery only". The battery came with the camera. The camera was bought in a big store in Philadelphia. I WILL NEVER BUY A SONY CAMERA AGAIN. I already tried to reset, tried to remove the battery and the problem persists.
