Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S60 Digital Camera

Dsc60 battery drains quickly

The problem I'm having is the batteries lose power very quickly. The batteries get replaced frequently and die within a short period of time, regardless of the number of pictures taken. Recently, the best case was about 150 pictures taken in a four hour period. The worst case was only one picture taken in a four hour period before new the batteries died.

Hello sir

these are the possiblities of the problem happening you are facing.

>>if the camera is facing this problem from the time you got it means then the product is defective one

>> if not then there must have been some problem with the power circuit

>> also if you are using low quality batteries they get drained out very soon.

>> so please go for very good alkaline batteries with high current rating .. a 2100mA will do good.

    and for detecting the problem do some sorting out checks.

    just check how many photos the camera is giving with flash.

    then use the same quality battery in some other digital; camera and take the photos in same mode.

    you can sort out if the battery is bad or the camera is bad

    after that you have cleared half way

    you can solve it from here easily

    thank you sir

    good luck

First of all, you need to use alkaline batteries with you camera, if you use mercury ones they wont last long.

    Ensure that you are using alkaline battery (eg. Duracell). if you are and you still get the problem then there is a short inside the camera that i s causing the battery to drain faster than normal.

Losing battery life too quickly.


Some of the things that drain the battery quickly are:
  • WiFi, if you're not using it turn it off
  • Cellular Data connection
  • Using push notifications - this requires that the iPad be constantly receptive and therefore using battery.
  • If you are using it during those two hours, try dimming the screen some.
  • Quitting apps that you aren't actually using can also reduce battery drain.

I will drive for about a mile with full power with little power lose.then all of a sudden,ill have extreme power loss . within 1quarter mile ill lose all power.something drains the batteries


Batteries do not provide a linear output during usage, but having it die out within a mile or so tells me that one of the battery cells is becoming weaker than the rest. If you're a handyman, you can save yourself a ton of money by replacing only the batteries (try interstate batteries) instead of going to the scooter store and purchasing the batteries and case.

Battery drains quickly. Loses charge when plugged


Sounds like you need a battery. The key here is that the battery is losing charge while it is supposed to be charging. Works like a car battery, even if the alternator is working 100%, if the battery is pooched, the car won't start.

1992 prelude si - battery/alternator prob?


if you can charge the battery and drive it for a while then sounds like the altenator has failed and is not re-charging the battery, good way to test is to charge the battery, start the car and turn the light on, if everything is dimm or the motor dies there is little to no charge voltage, and will require altenator work

1999 Volvo S80 will not hold a charge


Tricky ... Was the alternator replaced with a 2nd hand one or a new one?

A defective alternator can allow the battery to discharge within a few minutes (the diodes in the rear of the alternator can burn out and cause the problem. The diode pack can be replaced). When this happens recharging the battery only replaces the power in the battery - which drains straight back to earth via the alternator, flattening the battery again - often within a couple of minutes or less.

Does the battery lose its charge when the car is standing or just when the engine is fired up?
If the battery loses its charge overnight, try disconnecting the wiring from the rear of the alternator (also look at the electrical connector that fits into the back of the alternator - look for melting/burning marks which suggest something may be amiss inside the alternator).

Let the car stand overnight with the alternator wires disconnected. Will it start up ok and drive (with the alternator wires still disconnected) the next morning?

You could also try just disconnecting the alternator wires, firing up the car and then driving it -
If the car drives ok without dying out and gets further down the street than it usually does, then it probably is the alternator at fault. The car should drive until the battery drains and has insufficient power to trigger the ignition. You certainly would get further down the street with a charged battery and disconnected alternator than you currently do.

It does sound as though you've had an alternator fault to begin with. If it has been replaced with a 2nd hand unit that unit may also be faulty. Rather than replace parts in desperation, visit an auto electrician's - within a few minutes they will be able to test the battery/alternator output and also identify where the lost current is going. It will be cheaper in the long run to have an auto electrician look at the charging system. It only takes a few minutes.

Dsc60 batterries run out quiclky


Test a different battery (one you know is good) on the camera and see if you still have the problem. If with you still have the problem then probably it is a short. Check first in battery contacts, if you can see a short there than it is an easy fix, otherwise you need to open the camera and test contact inside.
