Dear Kishor Soni,
Your camera doesn't get information from terminal C of battery, thats why it gives such error message. Please check battery terminals at camera unit where you put/ install battery, aspecially C terminal. it can be rusty or dirty.

Why doesn't it recognize the correct battery?


hi,
If your camera do not recognize the original battery, it means some wrong information is stored in its software data, to override this please open the camera take out the small memory backup lithium battery, short the battery contact , after a five minutes connect that battery again.

On my Sony CDR SR-50 it says please enter info lithium battery ? What should i do


Hi
I have had a look at the manual for this camera and it needs an "infoLITHIUM" power pack (unique to Sony) in order to operate. I don't know whether you don't have one and the screen is trying to tell you this, or whether if you have the correct battery pack, it is faulty or needs charging.
If you download the manual (pdf format) here:
http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/2698884111.pdf
you can save it to your computer and with this in front of you with the camera you should be able to work out what is needed. The most likely pages you will need are 14 & 117, but using Acrobat reader's search facility for "lithium", all references can be found quickly and easily.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

POOR COLOR QUALITY, NO MATTER HOW BRIGHT THE ROOM. SOMETIMES CAMCORDER WILL CATCH THE COLOR, THEN FADE BACK TO DIM LIGHT


I'm sorry that the video quality of the camcorder is poor. Sony camcorders will automatically adjust the shutter speed based on the lighting conditions. When video is being shot in low light situations, the camera will slow the shutter speed. This is normal operation and is not a service issue. To prevent this issue, record video in locations where more light is present.


You may use the White balance feature and check the operation. Refer the page 71 for more information. Refer the URL to download the Operating Guide:

http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DCRDVD105-205-305.pdf

You may also perform a power reset and check.

Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Disconnect AC power adapter.
  3. Remove the battery pack.
  4. Remove the lithium button-cell battery.
  5. Move the POWER switch to the CAMERA position for 15 seconds.
  6. Move the POWER switch to the OFF position.
  7. Reinsert the lithium button-cell battery.
  8. Reconnect the AC power adapter or reinsert the battery pack.
  9. Turn on the camcorder.

I have a Cannon ES55 camcorder (about 10 years old), all of a sudden wouldn't charge. Bought new battery and new small lithium battery that is placed under the bigger battery, still won't charge. Any...


Check the voltage on the charger, now remove the battery off the cradle and check the voltage that appears on the terminals that touch the battery terminals. If there is sufficient voltage more than the battery voltage it should be good. Now make sure that your battery voltage is good and the battery though NEW has not been inthe shelf for long. If so it would have developed back EMF and will not charge. So check this out. If ther is no voltage a the cam terminals from the adapter then you will need to open and check for the charging circuit, a possible failure of the regulators. Hope you try this out. Good day

I need to set the camcorder to default settings


For most models, removing the battery pack from the camcorder will restore the default settings; however, some models which contain an EZ Q button, store your settings and removing the battery pack will have no impact on these settings. The Lithium battery maintains the clock function and preset contents of the memory; even if the Battery pack or AC Power adapter is removed. Removing the Lithium Battery along with the Battery pack will restore the default settings.
