Hdr sr1e won't work error c:04:00:00

The camera is 7 years old and things happen. If you have the original Manual, look up the code error to see what it relates to. If you say you installed Fully Charged new batteries, then an event relating to C:04:00:00 could be a circuit board malfunction or the metal conduction ends that touch the battery are corroded. With a light look inside the battery chamber to see if any material is covering the contacts. If dirty, scrape and clean the surface.

J.hughesneed to know when battery is full shows a white battery is that the color when full or is it still not charged

batterys usually show half colour when not full.
watch the battery indicator from time to time with mains power disconnected to see change
usually when charging the the indictor will flash.

run mouse over indictor if on screen and it should tell you how much % of battery is still left.

not possible to be more specific without model number

I hope this was useful.

I cant get a meesage tone

Message Alert: Go to Menu (four dots button at bottom left of main screen), Settings (cog button), Profiles. Ensure profile other than Silent or Vibrate Only is selected. Hit Menu/List button (bottom left) then Edit. Scroll down (using screen or camera focus ring) and ensure Message Alert isn't set to No Sound and select a tone from Message Tone.
Invalid picture messages: this is likely to be a carrier settings problem - either ring their customer service to get them to send you the settings (and ensure your account has MMS enabled) or download the settings via their web page.
Battery life: Try charging battery for 24 hours straight. Also ensure bluetooth is off if you're not using it. Turn Screen Brightness down and ensure backlight is set to 20 secs max. This will help extend battery life.
