Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-R1 Digital Camera
Switch batteries with 3 different ones and the camera still won't turn on. Batteries work in another camera.
I looked at the prongs in the bottom inside of the battery case (where the battery meets to give power to the camera), and it was actually crooked. I used a small screwdriver and straightened it out. Once I put the battery back in, the camera turned on! Probably am going to have to get it serviced, but in the mean time - it's working great!

that happen to my camera, exactly same thing. and i figured out when i dropped it the zoom out zoom in lens was bent and stuck part way in camera. My brother was playing around and moved lens and it started to work again. If lens looks a little crooked try moving it or putting it straight. Hope it helps

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

I have the same problem, but when I remove the MS Pro Duo card (1GB) from the camera it works fine again. The memory card works fine in a pc memory card reader. Is there a problem with the Sony camera built-in card reader?

The way to tell if your NordicTrack digital console is bad is to troubleshoot it first. If nothing works, you've got a bad console. The digital console is an important part of exercising. A manual machine will still work even if the console doesn't, but an automated machine needs the console to work so you can adjust things like speed, resistance and incline. You also can't use programs or see your time, distance or estimated calories burned without a working console. The two most common reasons that a console will be dim, display bad results, or won't turn on are bad batteries and a problem with the reed switch.
