Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery Charge My DSC-T1 battery does not seem to charge, when I plug it in, the yellow charge light comes on for awhile, than goes out. If I drop down the cover to turn it on, it comes on, and the battery shows not even half charged. When I close the cover again, the yellow light comes on for awhile, than goes out again like its not charging. Any suggestions? Thanks

Get another battery and try charging it. You should have a second, backup battery anyway. That should narrow it down between the charger and the battery as to which is defective. How old is the camera? It may be a better investment to put the money into a new camera. Also, look on EBay for a new charger if you find that it is the problem. There are many third-party manufacturers of chargers and batteries that work fine and cost much less.

Not working

It sounds as though your battery is dead. If you place it on charge, does it start then? If so, charge overnight and try with the charger unplugged. If it does not start, I think you have a bad battery. The yellow light indicates it is charging, but some notebooks do not start if the battery is bad, even if plugged in. You might try taking the battery out, and see if it works when plugged in. I hope this helps you find your problem.

Hello, I've had a DSC-T1 camera since 2005 and it's worked great, but now every time I charge it the battery doesn't charge and the camera overheats (to the point where touching it burns your fingers). ...

I suspect the battery is defective and if it is overheating it may have damaged your built in charger in the camera. That could present a fire hazard. I would first try a new battery.

Battery won't charge on my ryobi 14.4v cordless drill yellow and green lights stay on

I had the same problem and found a solution on another forum...
Plug the battery into the charger. The yellow and green lights come on. Leave the battery plugged into the charger. Plug and unplug the charger power cord from it's power source a few times until the the red charger light comes on..... problem solved!

I think the "smart" circuit in the charger that is supposed to trickle charge before the regular charge cycle needs at least some battery power to test and start the cycle. If the battery is totally discharged, the test can't deternine the battery status and will not charge.... Plugging and unplugging the charger seems to bypass this teat and charge the battery normally. The charging process should work normally after this method.

USB plug to charge, yellow light not green

t_cosh you must try charging it with the wall-charger, if that doesn't works, try entering BL mode by pressing # and *, and then pull the trigger to turn it on.

It will tell you that battery is low, you can connect then the charger, pull the trigger again, it should start normally.
