Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W120 Digital Camera

2 Answers

I hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem. When I put the battery in the charger the charger light comes on for about a 10seconds but then goes out (suggesting that the battery is fully charged). Is this a battery problem (not charging or holding a charge) or a camera problem? I don't want to buy a new battery if the camera itself is dead... Thanks!

Hi i have struggled with this within few months of buying the camera.
Both the charger and camera are not making a good connection with the battery. i clean with alcohol, this usually helps with the charger. When powering up in camera it helps to hold the battery in further and just keep hitting the power button. It always works eventually.
In the meantime my display has lost backlighting. i will never buy another Sony camera.
good luck, Karl
