It is possible thatthe camera is not able to draw power from the battery. Possible reasons include dirty battery contacts on the camera or the power draw circuit itself is damaged. I would suggest that you try cleaning the contacts first and if problem persists, you may have to send it in for service.

When we turn on the S60 it makes a buzzing sound and stays on momentarily and then shuts down. What might be the problem?


It might be any number of things, but the buzzing would seem to indicate a short in the camera. It could be the battery or any one of a number of electronic components.

Even if full batteries are loaded in the S60 , when turning on , display says "batteries empty" and camera goes off.


Alkaline batteries are not supported
use either lithium AA or CR-V3 batteries or rechargeable Ni MH AA batteries

HELP!! I am having a real Kodak moment. I have a Kodak M883, The wall charger says the battery is full but when you put the battery in the camera the camera turns on, the lense extends, battery reads...


Hello :

It seems that the battery is dead or the battery base is rusty or there's isolation stuff on it . Try to clean the base first . If that didn't help , then I recommend you to replace the battery .

good luck .

My camera stops working but the battery showed full.


Those are the symptoms of a battery that has been charged many times or has been allowed to completely discharge once or twice. Try some new ones.

Camera keeps shuting off When I power on the camera it shuts off right away. The batteries are good sony cybershot model dsc-s60


If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Camera goes into Shut Down Mode & Flashes the Letter H


Hey sonax,
This H error message means either the film is loaded incorrectly, or there is an internal malfunction in the camera. To determine if the film is loaded incorrectly you should take the film and the batteries out of the camera then reinstall the batteries and try taking a picture without film in the camera. If the camera allows it then the film was loaded incorrectly and I would refer to the camera manual for directions on how to load the film correctly. If the H error message persists then there is most likely an internal malfunction and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Camera will turn on and then turn off, while screen continuously flashes


I have had this problem with both a DSC-P72 and a DSC-P92 (same camera but 5 Mega pixel1.gif) They do need real good batteries, when the camera shut’s down I can run MP31.gif players or flashlights with those batteries for quit a while before those devices are dead.

I was traveling overseas once and installed “fresh” carbon batteries and the camera wouldn’t work at all. I had no photos on that trip until I found some alkaline batteries.

I even have bought 2 “dead” cameras1.gif to find that they work fine with REALLY GOOD batteries. So try it again before dumping the camera.

Brand new batteries and its tellin me to change them!


please check if the batteries u used before have leaked any oil inside the camera. this damages the metal strip that shorts and two batteries. if there is no damage then tat portion s safe.
the small battery inside battery compartment is for camera date. dont disturb it.
after changing new batteries tha camera works for few time and then shuts down means your camera CCD s consuming lot of power. use a camera adapter to confirm that the camera works in normal power atleast.
even after this. camera shuts off itself. take it to service centre soon.
