Replacing battery questions

I'm installing new Sony Lithium battery and the low battery indicator shows when it's attached to the Cyber-shot station. Is this normal? Also, how can I get it to show how many minutes are left on the battery? Also confused at instructions to turn camera off when charging: then how can I tell if it needs to be charged?

Re: Replacing battery questions

I have almost the same problem. I need another battery exactly like the one that came with camera, but I can't seem to locate a store that carries the battery. Can I substitute another type of battery in it's place?

Re: Replacing battery questions

Can you please advise where I can find out when the battery is running low on my m753 digital camera I have read all the instructions in the manual but there is nothing in this to let me know.

Also how long do I need to charge the battery for when it does run down.

I have a low battery indication with a fully charged battery on a Sony DSC-F717. What do I do?

First, even a fully charged battery may not be working right - VERY common.
Does the camera do this on two batteries, one old and one much newer? (I say this because lithium batteries are good for about 500 charges - if you are over this, the batteries will always read weak...)
A service shop can test the camera and see if the battery is reading correctly. A service shop may allow you to try the SHOP's good battery in your camera and see if it reads right. If OK, you need a new battery.

The service shop can reload the operating data into your camera - I have fixed them this way myself.
If not, the circuit board that handles charging and batteries may run you $275 plus labour. (The board is not repairable)

Digital still camera

Hey rolvnetr,
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 Digital Camera should be powered by 2 AA batteries. There are 3 main varieties of AA batteries which are Alkaline, Lithium, and rechargeable NiMH batteries. I prefer Lithium batteries, but rechargeable batteries are also nice but once they start losing their charge it goes fast so have a backup set. You should be able to buy any of these batteries at most retailers, and of course our Best Buy™ stores carry these batteries.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Battery/power-up problem

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).

Low battery indication

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. BMW
