Cant use alkaline or carbon/zinc. I never was able to get more than 5 shots with either, use NiMH or if it is a proprietary rechargeable battery, charge it up again, insert, attempt to turn on and use a pin to hit the reset button on the bottom or sside of the camera, Most SONY cameras have one of these, itll wipe out the date and time, but may also clear up a hung processor.

I have a cybershot DSC-P72, lens doesnt open anymore, batteries are ok. picture review, and setup work ok.For a while it would open then close straight away, but not anymore.


This camera needs really strong batteries. Even if the batteries work great in other devices they might not work in this camera. Buy some FRESH (yes check the date and get the ones that will expire the latest) Alkaline Batteries and give it a try. Rechargeable (NiCad) batteries never worked for me. This is the very reason I got rid of my P92 (same camera with higher 5.1m pixel optics)

Confirm if you're using a fully charged Battery with the Camera. Check if you're able to playback the images normally. Then, try to reset the Camera by either pressing the Reset button when the Camera is in ON condition or by removing the Battery and pressing the Power button for 1 minute and reinsert the Battery. Unfortunately, if the issue persists your Camera requires service.

You can create the service request at the following page: www.eservice.sony.com

If the lens is stuck, you might have to get a new camera. Or you can take it to a local repair shop. Or you can look it up online
