Re: Won't hold a charge
It's the battery, over time the amount of power that the battery can store diminishes, and the indicator will still show a full charge, even though it is not fully charged. try getting a new one, from sony, or a 3rd party supplier. ;)

My guess is that with the age of the battery it isn't able to hold a charge anymore which means you'll need to purchase a new battery. Your best bet for that will be to go through Sony or the website Dr. Battery.
The battery will not charge when the device is turned on. Make sure that when you connect it to your computer via its usb that you do not turn it on otherwise it wont charge.
The annoying thing about this device is that when you connect it to your computer and turn it on, on the LCD it will say "connecting via usb" and the memory bar will show that it is fully charged, however the battery is not. This must just be a design flaw as the battery won't be charged.
Just remember to plug it in and leave it, do not turn it on!
I have the same problem, bought this camera in probally '05-'06 and sometime in '08 it just stopped working, just recently ordered new battery and charging accessories because the battery would even charge or light up the camera's charge button. Well it's not the batteries or any charging accessories, Its The Camera, anyone else know what has happend here? I bought When it first came out @ over $700 it seemed to be worth it till it died for no reason!!
