DSV-V1 no power, doesn't react on battery or batterycharger
anyone any idea HOW I could check this problem myself ?
Suddenly ,from one moment into another my Sony is "dead"....?
I checked the charger and he is ok.
But i cannot check the battery because it has to be charged when placed into the camera.
So, the camera doesn't react on any kind of use of knobs.
thank you .

Re: DSV-V1 no power, doesn't react on battery or...
You may still have a battery fault, and the only way you'll find out is to buy or borrow an external charger such as the Sony BC-VC10. Buying a new battery won't solve it as they're supplied uncharged.
If you live in the UK and can post the battery to me I'll try to recharge it for you and will post it back afterwards.
BTW: Is your battery a genuine Sony InfoLITHIUM C, model number NP-FC11?

Hello Mandy, A dim screen or one that is black or suddenly blacks out, it might just be a power or battery issue. Do some troubleshooting. Check the power connection and see if its loose, then unplug it and take out the battery pack, then press the ON button for 20 seconds or so. Then put the battery back in. If that doesn`t work, you could have a burned out visual back light or a loose inverter. If the problem doesn`t go away, don`t open the LCD monitor and try to fix it yourself as that will void the warranty. Sorry for the late reply. Thanks,Reymond
It ispossible that the LOAD CELLS are damaged or there is a fault in the mechanism that is jammed and not reacting to the weight loaded on the tray. So remove and check if this is free and the depression is noticable. If so the LOAD CELL must be replaced.-- hoping that the main control board- processor is OK.
There is quite a bit of speculation on how to determine this. The following site will give you some insight: http://my.malloc.us/silverspring/2008/08/clarification-of-new-ta-088-models/ . If it is to load custom firmware, there is no harm in trying the pandora battery. It does not brick the v3 PSP. It just does not work. I tried it myself. Hope it helps.
If the problem exists both when you use the vehicle power connector and the usb cable to your computer, then you have to assume that the problem is with the socket on the One. If it's still in warranty, I would send it back to Tom Tom for repair. Contact customer support for repair information.
The DSC-V1 can use a Memory Stick of up to 2GB so that's not your problem.
Rather than type out a whole step by step guide on how all the menu settings can affect the camera, it's easier to just reset the camera to the factory defaults to see if that fixes the problem.
There's a small hole about 1mm in diameter on the camera base plate, just by the battery cover hinge clearly marked "reset". There's a button inside which you'll need to press whilst the camera is turned on, use anything which fits in the hole such as a paperclip (don't use a pencil though!).
If the symptoms cease, then it was a user setting which was the cause. If not, then the camera will need disassembly to diagnose and fix but sadly it's an uneconomic repair.
Note that a reset also returns the folder and file numbering to zero as well. To avoid overwriting previously uploaded photos uploaded you'll need to go into the menu system to manually set this to your needs. if you don't know what file number you were up to then just start with a new folder instead.
