Make sure you are using the right batteries. I had the same problem with a DSC-p31. I was using 2100 mAH when they have to have 2400 mAH. I hope this solves your did for me!

Sony cyber shot 14.1 when I take the battery out to recharge, it doesn't save date and time. WHHYYY

The internal battery needs to be replaced. Digital cameras as well as some film cameras have a battery inside that maintains your settings. Unfortunately, these batteries are not user friendly for replacement. I have changes 2 of mine but, I also have 2 cameras that I just live with it. I don't want to tear apart a $1000 camera and mess something up.

I have a sony mpegmovie vx camera and i have a problem, my camera used to work propaly and now it doesnt turn on, but the power light stays on for like 2 seconds.

Being a mobile electronics device, cameras get bounced around alot and can fail suddenly from wear and tear. The only thing I'd suggest is to try replacing the battery with a new one. When these batteries fail from use, they won't hold enough charge to power the device. If the battery is more than 3 or 4 years old, there's a good chance this is the case. Other than that, if the camera has a separate wall charger to charge the battery in, that could be an issue too. If you've tried the battery replacement and the problem persists, it's time for a new camera.
