The DSC-W55 does not contain any charging circuitry. Connecting the camera to a computer makes the battery drain faster, since the camera must use juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). You need to use the supplied battery charger to charge the battery.

If you need a battery charger, here are some:

Windows cannot open fileI have SONY DSC W55 cyber shot camera.My laptop is dell inspiron and I am using Windows 8 operating system.When I connect to camera to PC it shows as USB device has connected.


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

My sony dsc w-55 is 2 years old and now sometimes it shuts down in middle of recording or taking a pic...plz help


Check/clean the battery connections (use a cotton swab with a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol). Also if that doesn't work, is the battery as old as the camera? If so, it definitely may be time for a new battery. Here's some to consider from Amazon.

The DSC-W55 doesn't charge batteries via the USB port. It comes with a separate battery charger, which plugs into a wall outlet.

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W5 5.1MP - purchased about four and half years ago (ancient in technology years I know) - but it's a good camera and has served me well. For about six months I've had issues...


Have you tried this technique? Rub the contacts in the battery compartment with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Charger does not charge batteries


Check your charger with a voltmeter to see if it's putting out current. If you don't have a meter, try charging other batteries and see if it brings them up. If the charger is operating, your batteries may be too old/worn to take or hold a charge. Rechargeable batteries can last from as little as six months to over two years, depending on camera use and frequency of charging.
