Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W110 Digital Camera
Hi my partner just got this lovely camera and I treated him to an extra "compatible" battery (specified as suitable replacement for the NP-BG1) but the camera seems to reject it, announcing it does not work with non-original equipment or something and then shuts itself down immediately. Is this a common problem? Is there some way of getting around it apart from buying the branded battery?
The Sony's are notorious for rejecting batteries from other manufacturers. I'm told their batteries are made with a security chip embedded within. The accessory battery companies try to copy the codes, but Sony keeps changing them. Another issue arises if you charge a Sony battery on another brand of charger. The chip gets it's code messed up, rendering the battery useless and unrepairable. Bottom line is Sony tries very hard to keep the accessory market from encroaching on their market.
