SOURCE: Flash Will Not Operate

Flash doesn't operate from various reasons. Try to reset your camera if you find in the instructions manual a procedure like that. If it doesn't work here are some possible reasons. The flash works because a power inverter will charge a capacitor at about 350 volts. These are required to make a small lightning inside the flash tube. If the capacitor is damaged it will not charge, and the flash woun't work. If the invertor is damaged, it woun't charge the capacitor, and without those 350 volts the lightning inside the flash tube woun't go on. If the components that links the the camera's internal processor to the inverter circuitry doesn't work because of some failure to those components, again the inverter woun't work. Any shortcircuit or open circuit or imperfect contact can result in this. Even if the camera's firmware was corrupted in some way it could fail to instruct the camera to charge the flash circuitry. As you can see there are many reasons for that but only a service center can make the correct diagnostic. It isn't adviceable to dissasemble de camera yourself and tamper with the invertor circuitry as you are exposing yourself to those 350V. You may get some nasty electric shocks or damage other components. Therefore, I think the best aproach to this problem is to have it diagnosticated and fixed by a specialised service facility.

SOURCE: battery for Sony DSC T-300

I bought a SONY DSC-S750 3 months ago. Since last week, when i turn the camera on, appears the message "for use with compatible battery only". The battery came with the camera. The camera was bought in a big store in Philadelphia. I WILL NEVER BUY A SONY CAMERA AGAIN. I already tried to reset, tried to remove the battery and the problem persists.

Hi!
It's probably stuck focus. Contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.

SOURCE: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital camera that will not hold a battery charge

Aparently you have to use sony batteries with a sony charger. I have the same problem and have been trying different batteries because I thought what's the difference with batteries as long as they are rechargeable? I spoke with a guy at the sony store and he told me to use sony batteries with the sony charger I have. Don't know if he's talking BS or not but I'll give it a shot and see if it will hold a longer battery life. When I bought the camera it was great but now it dies really fast! I'll let you know how things turn out! Until then, if anybody else has a suggestion let us know so we can enjoy our H1's!

The batteries in my DSC H1 camera only last about 10 % as long as they used to. New batteries don't solve the problem. Can the camera be fixed? Larry


I would suggest trying a different type of battery. If you're using AA batteries, often alkaline ones don't work. Try lithium or even rechargable AAs. If it's a rechargable lithium type (a square battery) try charging the battery fully and then using it completely to refresh the lithium cells. Try cleaning the contacts (silver pieces where the battery touches the camera) with a soft cloth as they can easily get corroded. Generally battery failure is not to do with the camera itself.

I have a low battery indication with a fully charged battery on a Sony DSC-F717. What do I do?


First, even a fully charged battery may not be working right - VERY common.
Does the camera do this on two batteries, one old and one much newer? (I say this because lithium batteries are good for about 500 charges - if you are over this, the batteries will always read weak...)
A service shop can test the camera and see if the battery is reading correctly. A service shop may allow you to try the SHOP's good battery in your camera and see if it reads right. If OK, you need a new battery.

The service shop can reload the operating data into your camera - I have fixed them this way myself.
If not, the circuit board that handles charging and batteries may run you $275 plus labour. (The board is not repairable)

Loosing power randomly


how old are the batteries and how many times they were charged without being fully drained can cause a short life for the battery. Try a new battery-fully charging it properly, but dont charge it again till it goes off by itself completely. If you have a wall charger, plug your phone in. If it stays on that way, check your 'power save' settings. That can also make your camera shut off. Try these steps first and see if it changes the 'battery' from being empty to full and stays on. hope this helps

Turn off the camera, remove the battery pack. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds. Reinsert the the battery pack. Turn on the camera.

Please make sure the Battery is fully charged before performing this steps.

Also try changing the Batteries of the Camera. "AA" NiMH, "AA" Alkaline, "AA"
Nickel-Metal Manganese are the compatible Battries for the Camera. Hope it works!

Digital still camera


Hey rolvnetr,
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 Digital Camera should be powered by 2 AA batteries. There are 3 main varieties of AA batteries which are Alkaline, Lithium, and rechargeable NiMH batteries. I prefer Lithium batteries, but rechargeable batteries are also nice but once they start losing their charge it goes fast so have a backup set. You should be able to buy any of these batteries at most retailers, and of course our Best Buy™ stores carry these batteries.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
