It sounds like you need a new battery. I had the same problem with a simular camera before and just replaced both the charger and the battery because I wasn't sure which one of them was faulty. I haven't had a problem since then. I bought them from the website www.needbattery.com the company guaranteed thier batteries for a year and thier price was the cheapest on and off the internet that I could find. They have both batteries and chargers for your specific camera. This should take care of your problem. Hope this helps

Whenever i open it its sony cyber shot it says for use with compatible battery and turn off and by the way the battery was a new one and i didnt use it alot


Possible that the voltage on the cell is not as specified on the model and so the battery voltage detector thinks that the battery is not the recommended type due to the low voltage/current ratio.
I would suggest that you try with a new set than to suspect the camera.
Make sure the terminals are clean.

SONY DSC CYBER SHOT


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.

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!

USB Mode/Battery compatible problem


I think maybe one of the battery connections are damaged if so try to straighten them with a very thin long nose pliers .The other possbility could be that you have a faulty circuit board .Service it at sony or hopefully youve bought an original battery
