Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
I fully charge the battery, then put it in the camera and it drains the battery even when turned off. It seems like it is still on because the green light around the power button flahes until it kills the battery.
Since the camera is brand new, return it. This model has a short which causes the light to flash showing an "error" state. Again, if new, return it.

I would try cleaning the battery contacts first with a cotton swab, and if this doesn't work I would try initializing the camera back to its factory default settings as described on page 53 of your camera manual. If these options don't work I would try purchasing a new battery. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!
