Recharge of flash

Hi have the Sony DSC H1 camera and really like it even though reading about problems others have had. However, I am having a problems with fully charged batteries and the amount of time the flash takes to recharge. I miss great photos because it is ready:( Does any have any advice? I bought the camera 3 yrs ago in the US but am now living in India. I am a bit skeptical of taking it to a Sony repair center. Any advice/info would be appreciated!

Sony H1 camera has a delay to recharge the flash and I hope that you know that as you are using it for the last three years. If the time delay is a new issue check the MAH of the battery to ensure that it will be above 2200 at least. If the MAH is below 2200 it is natural that the time delay will be more to recharge the flash. If my solution proves good please rate it. Regards.

My Sony DSC H1 Camera easily get drains the batteries. I already tried to replace new batteries 3x and when i use it, just take 5 shots and the battery was drained already.


If you are shooting with flash and using alkaline batteries, this certainly could be the case. If you are using lithium batteries or NiMH rechargeable batteries and are not shooting with flash, and are having this problem, then there is likely some internal problem with the camera that is draining the batteries unnecessarily.
In that case, you'd want to take the camera to a repair shop for troubleshooting.

The batteries in my DSC H1 camera only last about 10 % as long as they used to. New batteries don't solve the problem. Can the camera be fixed? Larry


I would suggest trying a different type of battery. If you're using AA batteries, often alkaline ones don't work. Try lithium or even rechargable AAs. If it's a rechargable lithium type (a square battery) try charging the battery fully and then using it completely to refresh the lithium cells. Try cleaning the contacts (silver pieces where the battery touches the camera) with a soft cloth as they can easily get corroded. Generally battery failure is not to do with the camera itself.

I cant use dsc h1 with strobe light


If you problem is that the double flash triggers the strobes early (on the first flash and the shot is made on the second flash - dark) you either:
1. Get a wire accessory to command the strobes
2. Put a simple external flash on top of the camera and use it to trigger strobes. If you don't need the light from this flash just point it up of backwards, it will still trigger the strobes. If it does not rotate, you can use tin foil. A very simple external flash will do, as the camera will flash only once with external flash.
