Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera
I have used my camera with excellent results the past 2 years. i just went to a wedding 2 days ago and the camera worked flawlessly. But, now today i turned it on with new batteries and all, all is does is boot up and then immediately turns itself off with no access to any type or working operations. Any clues or ideas as to what happened to my camera? thanks in advance.....
Hello all! I am the one who took the pics of my class and then my wonderful camera stopped working. Before I sent $181 to Sony just to have them looka t the camera. The online helper suggested that I take the batteries out, press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds, let the camera sit for a few minutes without batteries, then place new "good" batteries in it. Well thats what I did and taadaa IT WORKED. I am so excited that I save $181 and my camera is working just as if it was brand new. I hope this solution helps someone!

I have a similar problem. Every time i turn it on the "low battery light flashes" it might take one picture than turns off. ON rare occasions i can take a few pictures, but as soon as i turn the flash on 'low battery flashes" and its dead. I've tried many new batteries, even bought the ni-Mh rechargable. Tried every different brand - its def not the batteries.

I find that if I hit the camera on the side where the batteries are, it turns on right away. Don't ask how I figured this out!!

I have the same problem above also - if I keep the lens cap on it stays on, but as soon as I want to take a photo it shuts itself off.

I have the same problem. I think it has something to do with the lense. Because if I leave the lense cap on it stays on. Tomorrow at work I am going to try and fix it, I need a microscope.

It could be the battery problem , you mention that turned it on with 'new batteries'.1) you need to ensure that the new battery is a good one.( not all the new battery are good ).use the volt meter to measure the voltage to confirm.2)ensure that the charging cable is ok. 3)try to use another battery to test the camera.hope it help
