Hey sdevine10,
The more you use the flash and the zoom the shorter your battery life should be, and the more often you view your pictures using the cameras' LCD screen the shorter battery life you will have. I would also suggest you use the NiMH rechargeable batteries that should have come with the camera, because they have more that 4 times the capacity than normal alkaline batteries have. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Keeps saying to power on and off


This is a symptom of weak/old batteries. Try replacing them with a pair of name brand alkaline batteries. (Duracell or Energizer)

My Sony DSC H2 camera is going through batteries very fast. What can I do? Thanks Don


What kind of batteries are you using? If you are using alkalines, yes you will only get about 50 or so shots out of a set. You need to use NiMH (nickel metal hydride) rechargeables. You can get a set with charger for about $25-30 from Best Buy. You will get several hundred shots per charge with them.

Sony Cybershot DSC-H2 Blurred image


Something in the lens unit is broken. The unit can't be fixed but needs to be replaced with a new or unit unit. A new lens unit would cost about half the price of the camera though...

My sony cybershot 12x camera is acting as if the batteries are bad and I have tried several new batteries so that's not the problem. It makes the sound as if it's turning on but won't come on or if it does...


After reading everything, I'd say it is an internal error. Unfortunately digital cameras are so expensive to fix, you might as well just buy another camera.

Call Sony and ask them what they think, chances are they've seen this problem at least once before and would be a way bigger help than me. The repair might be cheaper than buying a new camera. The H2 is pretty decent.

Extremely short battery life


do you use alkeline batteries? if yes then they would end in 20-25 shots. Instead, use rechargable batteries of 2500 mah which will last long, very long. On my Cybershot H1, they give aproximate 350 shots with single recharge.

Go for Sony Original Batteries or Uniross brand also works fine.

2300 mah/ 2500 Mah any will work.. :-)
