Question about Sony HD Touch Camera MHSTS20S

3 Answers

Bloggie MH3-TS20 (with 3 buttons only, no removable battery) doesn't seem to take a charge anymore (3 months old, rarely used). Orange charging light goes on, sometimes blinks, eventually goes off. Can't turn it on, though very infrequently I am able to get it to go on right after pulling it from usb charger. Battery symbol shows no charge. Stays on for about 15 seconds then goes dark. Then can't turn it on at all anymore.

My camera had same problem!!! Try it: "Press and hold ON/OFF power button for at least 7 seconds, and reboot the camera." See this manual: http://www.docs.sony.com/release/MHSTSseries.pdf. Best regards!!! Francisco

I just got my camera and have the same problem. (Bloggie Touch MHS-TS10) It doesn't seem to charge. It comes on for a few seconds after it's been charging for a long time, then I get a no battery icon on its screen and it goes black. I've tried holding the on/off button down for 7 seconds for the supposed reboot, but nothing happens. Also, I'm supposed to get some sort of software setup screen on my PC, so I can load the Bloggie software, but nothing happens there either, and there is NO sign of it anywhere in my computer. I've checked the SONY site & downloaded the latest drivers, but always get the message saying I already have the latest driver. My PC doesn't recognize the camera, and I've even tried restarting with it plugged in to the USB port. Any ideas? I keep reading Q&A boards where people advise to take the battery out and turn it upside down, but the battery is built-in and can't be removed.

Have you attempted taking the battery out and while the battery is out holding down the power button for a few seconds? If this doesn't work,
First test your charger to ensure proper charging. Clean charging ports. Remove battery and clean brass contacts with alcohol and q-tip

Battery not charging. Orange and Green light on charger. 18V Plus one system


The air holes on the bottom of the batteries are there for the battery to vent. Downside is, these vents can also allow moisture to get in and prevent contacts from letting the battery charge and causing the "defective" display on the charger.

I work on pool and spa equipment and I had dropped my batteries in a small puddle of water where I was working, both went dead immediately and both showed "defective" on the charger even after drying them out for a few days.

Tried using a can of air and gave each of the vent holes several shots... The batteries charged and are now working perfectly.

I'm sure even overnight condensation could be the culprit for a charger to display "Defective"

Seems to charge but then wont come on


Sounds like you bought a defective battery
You can test for this by removing the battery and holding the power button for 15 seconds. This will restart the charging cycle as if the battery were new. If it still goes red get a refund and a new one.

My acer aspire won't power up


Hi,
Try to connect your PC with the battery on the power outlet if it lights and charge normally. If the lights still orange, try to open the hard disk case and pull it out then try to put it in place again. If still doesn't go, try the memory card and clean it.
But I suspect that the battery has been overly charged. Try to look for another battery of the same model if it works with another and new battery.
Thanks

Acer aspire one battery light flashes orange. When booting after a few seconds it shutsdown. Now all lights stay off. Can this acer netbook work without batery ? It doesn't seem to charge the batery


Finally I got it working again, after a lot of try's (just put the plug in for a few hours) the led was red again for a brief moment, then it starting to flash orange again.
I looked it up on a lot of forums, the problem is that the (old) bios doesn't charge the batery anymore when it is deeply discharged.
So I put the plug in and out for about 10-15 times , and the brief moment it is not flashing it's still charging. Until it is not deeply discharged anymore and then it is charging the batery like it did before.

But I still don't understand why it is not working without the batery inserted ??

Acer aspire 3050 new battey will not charge


Sometimes batteries need a full 24 hr initial charge before they will work. You would be advised not to use the M/C during this period. Also it will take several charges before the battery reaches it's optimal performance.

This could be the problem so it's worth a try.

If it's only 10 months old it is still within the manufacturers warranty, so do not touch or alter anything to do with the charger or battery, as even though the battery is seeming to be the fault, it is normally the motherboard charging point that is faulty or the motherboard not recognising the battery is connected.
