    same issue- My machine worked properly for about a year, now it only works on batteries. If I plug it in (with batteries installed), it gives a 'battery error' message. Does not repeat the message until I remove batteries and/or put them back in. In the meantime it gives no message, does nothing if I try to turn on. I have had issue for a couple years, thought it had something to do with abused power supply. I changed out a damaged plug. I have also recently received a brand-new power adapter from sony. No fix. I'm about to take the machine apart & see if something's cracked inside. Makes no sense. Something's probably burnt.

Indeedy-do. At least for me, the fix was quite simple. Blown fuse (125volt 1.6amp). Simple glass-type. Anyone should be able to replace it. Finding the correct fuse could prove to be a wicked pain in the tuckus. I've put a car fuse in temporarily... I would certainly check your power source also. Cheers.

I have the battery error, but only if I'm running on batteries. I can run on the wall-plug just fine. With or without batteries inside of it.

As soon as I try to start it up with only batteries (brand new, tried several pairs) I get the "battery error"

Machine runs, just fails at batterys :(

    I replaced my Toshiba Tecra M4 tablet CMOS battery and I am still getting the error why is this and how do I fix it? I cant get passed the CMOS error when I boot the computer.


    When you replace the CMOS battery, you must wait about 10 minutes with the old battery removed, before fitting the new one (if you had a problem with the error message before) - when you fit the new battery, plug the tablet in and don't turn it on - this will give the new battery a chance to power up all of the CMOS on the board and settle down. Then turn it on, wait for the error message about the date and time being wrong, set the time correctly and the problem has gone.

    Camera never used and won't turn on, battery fully charged.Ideas? Thanks, Deb


    The fe-280 user manual notes hat it is possible to insert the battery "the wrong way round" in either the charger, or camera itself (whereupon its hard to extract).

    An extract from the faq about it .....

    The camera no longer powers on. What could be wrong?
    The battery may be dead or underpowered.
    If the battery is completely drained, the camera will not power on when the Power button is pressed. If the battery is nearly drained, the camera may briefly display a Battery Empty error message and then power off, or it may power on and then quickly power off without displaying the error. In either case, charge the battery using the LI-40C battery charger bundled with the camera.
    Be sure to properly align the arrow on the bundled battery with the arrow on the bundled battery charger. It is possible to force the battery into the charger so that the arrows are not aligned. This is an improper orientation, and the battery will not be charged. For instructions on how to properly inset the battery into the charger, please see "How do I charge the lithium-ion battery?"

    So in a nutshell, the first few steps to check are:
    1) Are you sure the battery is charged correctly?
    2) Have you inserted it into the camera body correctly?
    3) Do you have a spare charged battery to check the camera with? (A photo store will do this for you sometimes, if you ask nicely).

    Won't boot up


    Hello my friend,for the first error it means that you must disable floppy disk from bios.Hit del while you booting and find the option floppy seek in the bios and disable it(usually boot options/advance boot options/settings) ,save and exit and you finished.For the second error you must replace the bios battery.On your motherboard there is one small round battery that keeps bios settings,take it out but first take off your power cord and push the power button for 10 secs so you will remove any electricity for not harming your system.Take the battery to a shop or electrical shop and buy the same/with the same model that is writing on the top.Very easy to find it and cheap too.After you buy this installed exactly as it was.With the letters on top and then plug you power cord and open your computer and make the settings in the bios i told you.Good luck

    I just charged my camera's batteries and an error


    Your camera is telling you that the batteries have insufficient power. First thing to check is that the battery contacts on both the batteries and inside the camera are bright, clean and free of grease or oil.

    Assuming that you're using the original NiMH rechargeable batteries which came with the camera, then you almost certainly need to replace them with new ones as they cannot be reused indefinitely.

    To test whether the problem is with your rechargeables or with your camera is very easy. Just buy a set good quality, non rechargeable, alkaline (e.g. Duracell) AA batteries. If the problem disappears then you know that you need to buy new rechargeable NiMH batteries next time.

    There is also a small possibility that you have a faulty recharger but it's unlikely. The only way to test it without special tools is to try getting your NiMH batteries charged in a borrowed recharger. If the batteries get fully charged then the error message on your camera will vanish and you'll need to buy a new recharger. Just make sure that the charger is designed for NiMH though or you will damage your batteries and possibly the charger.

    I have to set the date each time I turn on my Nikon S9 camera even when the battery is fully charged


    Read the manual to determine my power supply is supposed to re-charge the watch and date power supply. Since this isn't happening and I don't have a recently purchased battery for it, I'll buy a new camera battery to see if it corrects the problem. If it doesn't correct the problem, the internal power supply that runs the date and time feature (2 days without the camera battery in the camera) will have to be replaced.
