Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-U30 Digital Camera
Camera quit working. I figured the Ni-Mh batteries quit. I bought new batteries and the camera still didn't work. I hit the reset button and the camera was back, but only for a little while. I shot about thirty-forty photos and now the battery light keeps flashing and it won't work at all even with a fresh charge. If I hit the reset button now, the problem goes away momentarily, but comes right back after one or two shots. I've tried three different brands of rechargeable batteries and the problem remains.
I think the problem was either dirty battery contacts or a broken connection somewhere with the battery terminals. I'd cleaned the contacts a number of times with a pencil eraser before, but nothing worked. This time, I just did it again and paid careful attention that both contacts on the battery door were protruding properly--could be that one of the contacts got pushed back such that it wasn't making proper battery contact. All I know is that it's working now, perfectly, after sitting for a couple of years on the shelf. I really like this camera.
