Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P200 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Sony Cybershot only works when plugged in

Ok so my camera has been working fine for a year. Now, it only works when it is connected to the AC Adapter. It will not turn on at all when it isn't plugged in. I tried to get a new battery but the people at the store said that would not work. Is there anything that I can do? It is very annoying. Thanks!

If there's no evident corrosion on the battery contacts, and your camera can't draw current from the batteries, I dont think there's anything you can do but sending it for repair. Try finding a repair shop that can handle it, because i think this might be a relatively easy fix, and sony will charge you an arm and a leg for it. Sorry I can't be of more help. Good luck!

Are you sure it is your charger and not the battery? (Batteries)

You could buy a new Sony charger, but there are lots of universal camera battery chargers, that won't cost as much and you can use it for every battery from every camera. Pick the right one and you have a charger for years to come, whatever your new camera will be and how big or small the batteries are.

I have had a Sony ICF SW7600 for the last 18 years. Now, it only wishes to work on batteries and not on the AC adapter anymore. What can be the problem and how to fix it

I have the exact same problem here in Europe with my perfectly with my Sony shortwave after 18 years. If I fiddle with the ac adaptor in the radio plug, it works for a while. I have replaced and soldered the yellow tip adaptor twice in 18 years and hopefully the problem is with the power plug and not the radio plug.
Any help is appreciated.

Sony FD mavica will not run on charged battery, will run plugged in to charger

You either have:
1) a false positive on your battery, meaning that they aren't really charged even though they say they are (especially common the older a battery gets), or
2) the battery connection is faulty/dirty, while the AC adapter is fine. If the AC adapter uses the battery port, then the battery is your problem.

Soney cybersthot dsc-s30 charging issue

I replaced the battery. The new one keeps a charge and lets the ac adapter charge the battery. I plan on purchasing a new battery and recycling the old one.
