I put the battery in the wrong way and it jammed. I finally got it out and the battery broke in the process. I then bought a new one and charged it, put it in the camera only to find out its the wrong type of battery. I then bought another one which is the correct type. I charged it until it said it was fully charged but the camera wont even turn on. The battery deffo works, could it be the charger?

If your batteries did not leak at all, and corrode th points where the. Batteries make contact, then it could be something very serious on the main board, or something simple like the on/off switch. Really it's the sort of problem that needs to be seen by someone. I'd check the battery connections first, then make absolutely sure the batteries are going in the right way around. Flat end is - and pointed tip end is +.
If the camera does not turn on then it can be a failure in the main control board and much cannot be done from the outside than to try a reset with the battery out for sometime.
If so you can open tocheck for some loose links, jammed drive or series fusible links/resistors.
If not the mP canbe faulty or the power circuit can be damaged with a wrong adapter or a reverse battery.( just a chance)
I actually fixed mine... please read all instructions b4 making actions... i
dont know how but ill tell u wat i did. (brace urself.. i will rambling
a bit with unnecessary details, but it may help u... SO i went to target... where i bought the camera and
bought a new battery b/c other forums said its the battery thats
deffective.... This didnt help because i put the new battery in and it
did the same thing.
2. i cleaned the new battery with a q-tip
(the 3 metal parts.. and the inside of the camera where the metal parts
connect) This did not work either
3. Clicked it to FAVORITES cuz
i knew it was able to review pictures... i clicked menu and i
reformatted the Month day and year and time (because it said it was
wrong)... that didnt help...
4. finally... i decided this may
work like the iPod.. so i held down the ON/OFF button while holding
down the Time/Ascending Folder button (its in the circular panel where
OK button is ... it is the button under OK on the circular panel) ...
and eventually that green blinking light kept blinking... and all of a
sudden i the monitor was showing picture again .. i took a picture of
myself... deleted it... went back to camera mode... turned off the
camera turned it back on... and its back to normal....
4- 1/2. I but back in my old battery... and it works like normal
IN CONCLUSION.... maybe its not ur battery. .so b4 u go out and spend
29.99 onn a new rechargable... follow my instructions and maybee it
will work for u too!!
Install new batteries.....really! They will just up and die when your camera's on and then there's nothing else you can do. If you have rechargeables....swap them out for any fresh batteries just to close your camera...then put your recharged rechargeables back in. Or put them back in and recharge on your camera dock.
Was your camera working before you put the new battery? if yes, then its possible some dirt or grit has got stuck between the lens and the body and therefore you motor might be warming up.
Since you 've bought a new battery, I dont think It may not be the battery, the way you are explaining. It could be the lens motor itself, since its warming up.
Try to do the following: ( I 've got this checklist from the forum itself)
Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fully charged batteries back in and turn the camera on. if it doesnot work then,
2: Remove the batteries again, as also remove the memory card. Then install the newly charged batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. 3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during start up. This extra power can be useful to overcome any grit or sand particles that may be jamming the lens. 4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots. 5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum 6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand.
Try the above and let me if its any help.
Best of luck
I bought one today , and I had the same problem. I tried four brand new pairs of batteries and when I pressed the power button it just wouldn't work. I was going to return it tomorrow, but decided to try it again. I inserted the batteries that it originally came with and it finally worked. I tried the other batteries and it worked also, but not on the first try, in the third or fourth try. Maybe on the first few tries the batteries need to warm up? Anyway, it's working now.
It sounds like you have jammed your lens. If you want to repair it yourself there is a guy in South Carolina who has lots of parts for all the Sony Cameras.I bought my LCD from him for $39.00 plus shipping and it works perfect.I put it in myself and saved a ton.If you buy the part from him he sends you pictures of him taking the camera apart so that you can repeat the process when you install it.I think his email is email@example.com
I doubt it altho I really don't know. I've put over 6000 shots through my 300 and finalized in all kinds of conditions - including bumpy roads, trams, and airplanes. I've never experienced what you described, although twice in severely bumpy conditions I had one pic on each disk with half its pixels corrupted. Sounds like there is something severely wrong. To test it you can try not finalizing and look at the pics through your USB connection.
