After one frame battery icon flashes ( battery is full charged)
Today I put a fully charged battery in my camera and shot one frame, when the battery icon began to flash and the camera would not take another frame. Took out battery, put it back in again one frame and the battery icon flash. Put in a different fully charged battery and the same thing happened with the second battery. HELP

The problem is with the electric contacts between the battery and the camera. You can try cleaning them with a clean pencil eraser. Make sure you don't leave any eraser debris in the battery compartment. It is best to do this while holding the camera so that the battery compartment door is "down" so that any eraser debris will fall out of the door onto the table rather than fall into the compartment.

It seems the Red-eye reduction feature of the flash is ON. In this mode, the camera emits a pre-flash and then the actual flash discharges after a delay. Or it could be on Slow Sync. In this, the flash fires at the end of the exposure. Just go to Flash modes (the lightning-like icon) and if it is showing an eye-like icon or the word 'slow', change it to some other mode, probably the flash ON or OFF mode. Also, make sure that the batteries are fully charged.
If this solves the issue, please rate this solution.
It might be a battery issue: Please try the following: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)
No sorry to say this is normal for this camera! you may want to look for rechargable lithium batterys (they will last longer in a high drain device such as your camera!

The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).
Possible failed battery showing fully charged but actually not -or even charger.No reset]
Disconnect from the wall socket- re connect and tell us if the battery is now charging.
If show full- replace battery.
Also tell Sony customer support
You have either a faulty charger, a faulty battery or a fault in your camera. I purchased 2 batteries for my Sony 505v and from new one of them kept flashing an empty battery sign right in the middle of the display. Actually it was fully charged but Sony batteries have a little circuit inside them which tell you how long the batteries will last. In my case I could continue to use the battery but put up with that flashing icon. I returned it to where I purchased it and it was replaced Immediately.
Please ,next time give us a little more information as to what battery type it is and which camera it goes in. Some cameras can develop a natural short circuit over time.
