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.

It's probably stuck focus. Contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.

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!
