It could be that the battery isn't holding a charge anymore if you are using rechargeable batteries in you camera. Most of them have a short life to them. If you can get a hold of another one, see if that solves that problem.

When I turn my Sony Cybershot dsc-p72 on, i am able to view my pictures, but when i try to take a picture the screen is black and it makes a whirring noise. Then the camera turns off automatically. How can...


Confirm if you're using a fully charged Battery with the Camera. Check if you're able to playback the images normally. Then, try to reset the Camera by either pressing the Reset button when the Camera is in ON condition or by removing the Battery and pressing the Power button for 1 minute and reinsert the Battery. Unfortunately, if the issue persists your Camera requires service.

Check the battery contacts inside the camera and see if there getting a good connection. If there spring loaded you might have to pull up on them slightly to get a contact going for charging. Look for corrosion as well.

Sony Cyber-shot Digicams - Picture Quality !?!?!?


I'm assuming you purchased a Sony as replacement. If that's the case, take it back and ask for a new one or have it checked out. Something sounds horribly wrong to me. If by chance you got one of those Chinese/Taiwanese cameras. Give it away and go back to the P72. Of course, a few hours reading the manual and playing with the camera may solve your problems. Don't try to get fancy first off. Stick with Auto modes until you get a feel for what you're doing. If you are using Auto the go back to the first sentence :-) BMW
