Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Problem Hi, I just recently purchased a DSC-W50 camera off ebay and I google the battery type and found that this camera uses Sony NP-BG1. I bought the battery from an ebay seller and received it today. I inserted it into the battery slot and I got a message stating " for use with compatible battery only" . I charged it for 2 hours and I got the same message. has anyone had this type of thing happen? Could it be the battery or am I using the wrong battery type. Please advise. Thanks

    thanks treyros,



     



    I contacted the seller and will be returning the battery for another one. I have an aftermarket charger that is specifically for the NP-BG1 battery. Does that make a difference? I didn't think it would. Anyhow ima wait till I get the replacement and see if I still have the same problem.

I bought a SONY DSC-S750 3 months ago. Since last week, when i turn the camera on, appears the message "for use with compatible battery only". The battery came with the camera. The camera was bought in a big store in Philadelphia. I WILL NEVER BUY A SONY CAMERA AGAIN. I already tried to reset, tried to remove the battery and the problem persists.
