    I've had mine fixed once and it just developed the same problem again. I gave in and purchased a DSLR, though I would like to have this one working again as a backup. Is there anything I can do other than sending it off to the repair facility again?

Camera doesn't get Info Signal from battery thats why gives such message. One solution is to deattache battery for couple of hours and try again.
2nd is that camera has hardware problem and requires qualified technician to repair it though its not big repair.

Use infolithium battery pack


I believe Shahid is correct... it's probably the pins.. try this... first make sure all switches are off during the entire process (viewfinder pushed in and keeping the LCD closed, try cleaning the pins on the back of the camera with a Q-Tip and Isopropyl alcohol (91% if possible)... leave it a bit damp and push the battery into place several times to clean it's contacts too.. then let everything dry, reconnect the battery and turn it on. The problem will hopefully be all gone.

It sounds like you are using an aftermarket (non-sony) battery pack. The camcorder you are using probably requires the Genuine Sony 'Infolithium' Battery pack (usually in the box of the camera). If you are getting this message with the proper battery installed, i would contact SONY

''for use with compatible battery only''


This appears to be a common fault. You can look up similar problems in fixya with the words "Sony" and "for use with compatible battery only". It would appear to be a logic fault in the battery system somewhere. Here's a couple of solutions with merit that appear elsewhere......

Solution 1)
I took out the battery from the camera; then I made a short-circuit with a small cable between all the three electrical contacts in the bottom of the battery. Then I put the battery into the camera; the camera didn´t turn on. I took the battery out again from the camera and placed it in the charger supplied, in a few minutes the light was off. I placed the battery in the camera, and ... I´m working well with it! (5 people thought this was helpful)
Solution 2) please remove the battery while pressing and holding the power button for 1 min. plase make sure that the battery supplied for yer camera is an NPBG1 original sony battery.
(12 people thought this was helpful)
A final health and safety word - take care when shorting out batteries - they can still give a shock. If you work from the assumption that your battery is currently unusable, then these solutions might work...... or you'll end up with a shorted useless battery (i.e. not really any worse off than now). If you find a better workaround - please post it.

What does "for inoLithium battery only" mean?


Is it a Sony battery. I had a similar problem on a similar Sony that I fried using an aftermarket battery or at least that is what Sony said caused it. Especially if it is an info battery.

The new battery may not be an original Sony infolithium type which has internal and interactive circuits. These infolithium types constantly informs you about the battery condition.The only way is to try another battery. Sivaram.V
