Re: 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.

Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in today's power hungry digital cameras. Some batteries may also have reached their shelf life at the store, and though brand-new right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. The one's that came with your camera are just to show you that the camera works, but as you've discovered, they'll only last for a few pictures. Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with modern rechargeable batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you should see the same recommendation. Modern rechargeable batteries have over 5 times the power density of alkaline batteries (that's right, they last up to 5 times longer than an alkaline battery. And you can recharge them over and over!). Keep in mind rechargeable batteries will save you much money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.
Have you try removed the battery ,it looks likes your
battery are almost dead ,;try to charge them
with your batterry charger;at same time you charge; plug the ac adaptor in; to see if camera work fine..
hope that help you
if not come back with it ...???
Check if the charger is working. If yes Firstly, make absolutely sure that you have a pair of fresh HIGH
QUALITY batteries, in fact go and buy a couple of duracells. Digital
cameras are notoriously power hungry and it is very possible that a
pair of cheap standard batteries will not be able to run it for more
than a few minutes. Check that the terminals of the batteries and the
camera are clean. If none of this works, and you did have fresh
alkalines or equiv. then it will have to be returned for repair.
It is possible that the battery is defective. This is a common cause for what you are describing. To verify this, you will have to try another battery. You can take the camera to the nearest Sony service center to verify this if you don't want to try a new battery first.
when I turn the power on screen is blue with "access" message. after a few minutes, message is replaced with "turn power on and off". I have removed and recharged battery but keep getting the same message and other functions of the camera will not work.
If you have used this camera more than three months Try changing the battery. Before using fully charge the battery. Let the battery consumed in your camera fully then you charge again. Otherwise the battery life will reduce. Try this option before trying any other option.
