Screen will say: for use with compatible battery only

When I turn my camera on the time and date screen will come on, and a second later the words(for use with compatible battery only) will appear on screen and then the power goes off. I have the correct battery, it shows full charge, any suggestions?

How old is the battery? Rechargeable batteries are only meant to last a couple years at most. If the battery is older than that, consider replacement. Amazon usually is a good source for good generic replacements at reasonable cost.

I have a DSC-W 380 Camera ,I can't print the pitcher with the date


The new models do not have the feature of superimposing directly as many customers did not want this feature because accidentally they had this option On and the Date and Time stamp got printed on the photos even they didn't want it.
However, the new cameras that are equipped with the EXIF technology gives you an option to superimpose the date and time later by using compatible third party EXIF software.
You can also connect the camera to a Pictbridge compatible Printer to print the images with Date and Time.


You may use the MS Paint to insert the Date & Time.

Date/Time resets every time i turn on camera.


Hi, yes, there is a small coin memory battery, usually something like a CR3032 lithium battery. Turn off the camera and insert a new 'coin' battery (correct side up). Close battery cover, turn on camera and go to menu and set time and date. It should remember the time and date for a year or two, provided you put a regular battery on the camera on a regular basis. Also note, some older Sony cameras allow you to set it so that it shows only the date for the 1st 5 seconds when you first turn on the camera that day, then shuts it off unless you want it to superimpose the time and date on the video. Good luck, and let me know if this solves your problem. John

I hadn't charged my w330 Sony camera for a while ....I've only had my camera for 6 months...and it's warranty is 2 yrs. The camera is in good condition, yet when I charged my battery, and later put it in...


In order to avoid people using 3rd party batteries, electronics manufacturers have started putting smart chips in the battery packs. The camera interrogates the smart chip and if it isn't the Sony chip, the camera tells you "too bad."

In your case, since you have a genuine Sony battery (it came with the camera, right?), return to the dealer and have them exchange the battery.

Cannot set camera so date and time will stamp on images.


The camera will not deface your pictures by scrawling a string of numbers across the image. However the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every image file. Depending on the program and printer, you can print this on the image, in the margins, or on the back. Refer to the documentation for the program you're using to print.

If you're printing from the camera to a PictBridge-compatible printer, you can turn on the date imprinting: it's the second item on the Print setting screen. See the "Printing" section in the camera manual (page 178 in my copy).

Sony DSC-W150 power on keeps going to set date/time


The date and time settings are displayed after turning on the camera. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif It is normal for the camera to lose time and date settings if the internal battery is left uncharged for an extended period of time; some cameras will default to the time-setting screen when turned on if this happens. Follow the steps below to resolve this issue.
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Insert a fully-charged battery pack into the camera.
    • If the camera is supplied with an AC power adapter, plug the adapter into a working electrical outlet and then connect it to the camera.
  3. Allow the internal battery that retains the time and date information to charge for at least 90 minutes.
  4. After enough time has elapsed to sufficiently charge the internal battery, turn on the camera.
  5. Set the time and date.
  6. Turn off the camera for 30 seconds.
  7. Turn on the camera again.
  8. Check to see if the date and time have been saved.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required.

Can't read the date/time


There may be a simple explanation. Here are two possible reasons this is happening: * You may have disconnected the power source before turning off the power to your camcorder. If you remove the power source from the camcorder while the power is on, all settings and selections will be erased. Make sure to turn the camcorder's power off before disconnecting the power source. * This is particularly an issue for some early VHS-C camcorders – those with model numbers beginning with a "6" and ending with a "2" or "3" (i.e. CC6xx2 … CC6xx3). These camcorders have a consumer-replaceable clock battery that may be exhausted. If that battery runs dead or is removed and the main battery or AC is not connected, the camcorder will lose all its Date and Time settings. * In some models, the date and time display is designed to do this. When you turn on many VHS-C and digital camcorders, the Auto Date mode will display the time and date. When recording begins, the date is recorded on the tape for 5 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the date will then be replaced with the words AUTO DATE but they will not be recorded. They remain in your viewfinder so that you know this feature is on. On full-size or VHS camcorders, the Auto Date feature is very similar. When you first turn on the camcorder, the date along with the word AUTO and a Clock icon appear in the viewfinder. When recording begins, the date is automatically recorded for 10 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the Clock icon and the word AUTO remain but they will not be recorded. They remain so that you are aware that this feature is on. When using the Auto Date feature, be aware that the time is only recorded when you first turn on the camcorder and begin a recording session. It does not record each time you press the record button. There are a number of time and date display and recording options. Since these vary by model number, please refer to your owner’s manual for more details.
