F707 slow to "boot up"

My F707 has become excruciatingly slow to start up lately, taking nearly 10 seconds to be ready for the first shot vs. a mere second that I'm used to. Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be the two-year-old lithium battery causing this? Any insights are appreciated. Thanks, Dami

I haven't had any such problems on mine. Have you tried swithching memory cards or re-formatting. With some other cameras such problems are attributable to the memory card.

My Sony digital still camera F707 works very quick self timer (cca.2 sec.) May I readjust for original 10 seconds? Thanx for help!

There is no setting to change self timer, default time is 10 seconds. However you can reset camera to restore default settings by pressing reset button located under battery compartment, try it as it might correct self timer problem.

My Inspiron B130 barely works. It has always had issues, making a crackly noise as it boots up. But these days it takes an excruciating amount of time to boot up. I literally have to be reading a book...

i suggest to upgrade the memory of your laptop. make at least 2GB. if the laptop can accommodate such capacity of memory. please also do check in the manual if can accommodate that kind of capacity.

and with regards to a crackling noise. please check your hard drive by using the checkdsk. maybe your hard drive has bad sectors or the disk inside don't function very well.

I insert a memory stick and it says "No memory Stick" although it will take and record pictures . Does anyone know where i can purchase a 128 Memory stick for the DSC -F707?

You should purchase online from some secure seller.
Like here, its Sandisk Homepage.
search for the compatible Card from the bottom right tab.

Also Note that DSC -F707 doesn't support more than 128-Mb cards.

If helpful, Kindly DO RATE!
Best Regards.

DSC-F707 Digital Camera Problem

I did the same thing. What I found out was that it's very important to charge a lithium battery completely on the first use. You probably took it off the charger too soon. If it's not completely charged on the first use it won't be able to hold any charge.
Sadly, I ended up having to buy another one and try again.

DSC-F707 camera cuts off after 10 second , just bought a new battery.

I also bought an aftermarket battery for my F707 on Ebay and got the same "for info...." message.
I contacted the seller and they sent me a new one and it worked, don't see a way around it.

Monitor or Desktop itself problem?

that status line was designed together with your OS, it seems that your PC was getting slow in boot..

A number of factors, having little to do with the age or capabilities or your system, can create excruciating system slowness. They include the following:

Operating System
File System (how you've organized files on your PC)

The Windows OS (operating system) is notoriously inefficient, which can affect performance. The file system also impacts Windows and hardware performance. How you work with applications can improve system speed, as can some basic hardware updates.
