Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery life on sony DSC-h1 is shortening

Pop in a fresh set of AA batteries, and the camera will shut down after 5-10 shots and claim the battery is low. I can start the camera again later and the meter will show full battery, but then it will show half, quarter, give me the slash battery and out again.

Seeing the number of comments here suggests a design flaw.

Apparently, i was told by a sony sales guy, to use sony batteries WITH the sony charger. Don't use another kind of battery in the sony charger or use an engergizer charger with duracell batteries...we'll see if that fixes the problem as for I have the exact same problem! I'll let you know what happens! (though I'm very suspicious that the guy didn't know what he was talking about! worth a shot though since I've tried a lot of batteries and chargers to try and fix the problem with my H1!)

The Sony cyber shot DSC-S500 is not getting powered on. I also bought new Everready AA rechargable batteries. But still it just goes on and shuts down in a second. What to so


if you are so technicaly inclined you need to open the camera and replace the button battery on the board. the symptoms of your problem are due to a boot test regarding the hardware clock, since the button battery is dead it can't keep time and shuts off before it frys its self.

The batteries in my DSC H1 camera only last about 10 % as long as they used to. New batteries don't solve the problem. Can the camera be fixed? Larry


I would suggest trying a different type of battery. If you're using AA batteries, often alkaline ones don't work. Try lithium or even rechargable AAs. If it's a rechargable lithium type (a square battery) try charging the battery fully and then using it completely to refresh the lithium cells. Try cleaning the contacts (silver pieces where the battery touches the camera) with a soft cloth as they can easily get corroded. Generally battery failure is not to do with the camera itself.

Camera turns off after reviewing two pictures


I suspect this a battery problem which has been described by many Sony users. The camera reads the battery charge wrong
and shut downs down.

For what its worth I had this same problem with both rechargeables and alkcalines. Fresh batteries were rejected after just a few shots and were clearly NOT dead. Solution seems to be either use Sony's NP-NH25 cybershot battery which is made of two AA batteries jointed at the hip or use generic rechargeable NiMh batteries with a capacity superior to Sony's battery (>2500mAh).

Extremely short battery life


do you use alkeline batteries? if yes then they would end in 20-25 shots. Instead, use rechargable batteries of 2500 mah which will last long, very long. On my Cybershot H1, they give aproximate 350 shots with single recharge.

Go for Sony Original Batteries or Uniross brand also works fine.

2300 mah/ 2500 Mah any will work.. :-)
