Question about Sony Cybershot S650 Digital Camera
I've got my sister's camera here, and have been using it the last couple of days to take a few pics of my newborn.
It has developed an odd problem.
Yesterday I got a notice on it saying the battery was low, and the screen was very blurry. I bought some new batteries, and popped in a fresh set. This worked for maybe fifteen min, and I had only taken maybe four pictures. Then, it suddenly shut off when i pressed the shutter button. I tried to power it back on, and would get the Cybershot screen, and then it would blank off again. This continued for several minutes, and then it finally came on for me, and gave me warning that the batteries were low. These were brand new batteries. I tried ANOTHER new set, and went through the same thing in the space of a few minutes.
It seems to be eating batteries in a VERY short period of time(like five to fifteen minutes) When it is not being used very much at all.
What could be causing this? Is it a repair issue?
In the cameras menu try finding the reset feature. once it is reset test it out also check to see if the cameras flsh is working if it is and then the batteries are dead then it has a bad flash compasitor because it has to charge up and release the charge to the flash but if the compasitor nevr fully charges it keeps tring to charge it and the batteries drain fast. It can be repaired. Hope this helps.
