Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera
I've had a CyberShot DSC-F717 for about 5 years, and just today I noticed that it won't turn on. Nothing happens when I toggle the power switch, it just stays black. However, when I plug in the charger, the orange charging "lightning bolt" stays on. Curious. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
You are correct. The battery has lost it`s life.
Contact your nearest Sony dealer and ask them for the NP-F50 battery which I think your camera uses.
The reason why the battery still shows it is charging ( if your interested ) is due to the sensing cct - you will see your battery has three poles and not just 2. The sensing pin is faulty due to the buildt in PCB having a problem. The batteries probably are still ok inside, but the sensing cct does the actual charge control.
Best of luck.
