I had this problem and tried to clean contact points with alcohol but that didn't work so I tried it with a clean eraser and it worked! I had to find a slim pencil that had a good eraser on the end to get it into the contact points within the camera, but I did and just cleaned the 3 contact points with a twisting action and now it works!!

Your batttery may be faulty or your software of camera needs to be sent in for upgrading.

If you have new batteries and are having this problem, then you will have to send the camera in to sony and they will fix or replace it for $50

SOURCE: The Sony battery that came with the camera no longer works

I had the same problem and tried cleaning the contact points with alcohol on cotton swabs and it didn't work so I tried using a clean pencil eraser and after cleaning both the battery contact points and the 3 contact points within the camera using a twisting motion, it works!

I have a sony dsc-t90 camera when i turn on the power there is error massage {for compatible battery use only}i change a new battery but the problem is still there so is there any body can help me what is...


The compatible batteries for this Camera are NP-FD1, NPBDL.

Please make sure that you're using compatible battery pack.

Remove and reinsert the battery pack, while the Camera is turned off.

Reset the Camera by removing the battery while the Camera is ON and reinsert the battery after a minute and turn on the Camera.

If the issue is not resolved the Camera needs to be serviced, as it will be the issue with the hardware part of the Camera.

Battery compatibility error, even tho it came with camera!


Try clean contacts of camera for battery and contacts of the battery also, specially the middle one - it is for communication between camera and circuit inside the battery. If the problem persists, try use another battery in your camera, or your battery in other compatible product - you determine this way if the problem is inside the battery (I hope, it is cheaper) or inside the camera.

Battery for Sony DSC T-300


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.

I have had my camera for over a year now without a problem. It is a Sony Cybershot 7.2 Megapixels. Everytime I turn it on a black screen and the message - "For Use with Compatible Battery Only"...


Hi
There is a sentence which i cannot figure out the your wrote in your initial description of your poblem. I think it is meant to be the error message you are getting here is what i read as part of
""For Use with Compatible Battery Only&quot"

Can you try and post it again. From your response i still have te suspicion it could be the batteries, but your error message will help.

Regards
