If the battery is the original type then it is possible that the battery is faulty and has gone weak. So it is important to discharge and have the battery charged to full capacity, check the terminals of the battery- clean if needed.
if not the battery must be changed.-- you can try to use a borrowed battery- same type to confirm before you buy a new one.

How to remedy dtc code P1000


A dtc p1000 isn't a fault code, it basically. means you have to continue to drive you car until all engine monitors finish their test and no faults are happening. When you either disconnect your battery or had someone run a scanner test on it and clear any fault codes, it clears the memory of the p.c.m and monitors that watch certain systems on the car, o2 sensors, misfire, evap system, cat efficiency and others to make sure everything is ok.it has to go through 3 drive cycles and not see any fault for the p1000 code to go away..How long dies a drive cycle take? All cars are different, you have to drive above 70 mph for a certain amount of time, have to do no brake slow to stops a few times, maintain 35 for an amount of time and so on....at the dealership each tech has a sheet copied out of shop manual showing what we have to do to complete a drive cycle.sometimes you get it first shot, sometimes it takes a few trips.just 1 wrong and monitors will not pass..just be patient and continue to drive.Take it out on the highway and drive 10-20 miles and see what happens....happy drivi

I accidentally pushed the film release button before finishing my film, and it won't pop back out. it won't let me take pictures too. how do you fix this?


The mechanism won't re-engage until you open the door (camera back) and shut it again, then wind on and fire a few shots as if starting a new film. You could open and shut the door in total darkness, and then waste a few shots to carry on with the film in the camera, but the frame counter will be wrong. Unless there is a lot of film left on the cassette, you might as well just rewind it and start again with a new film. Yes, you will probably be paying more than you should for the processing and printing of a partial film, but you will get your pics.

The batteries on my Sony Cyber-shot 6.0 run out very quickly. This problem has just started in the last few months - before that they lasted well. Is this a problem that can be fixed?

SONY DSC-H9 WON'T STAY POWERED UP


I think that both your batteries are bad. Because the batteries have sat on a shelf not being used the batteries will only take a surface charge and not fully charge. Bum a battery from someone with a Sony that uses the same battery and see if that works.
