Camera wont switch on

I used my camera & it was fine, I then looked at my photo's on the camera... the battery was low & after a while it switched itself off saying "battery empty", which it has done many times before. Since then it will just not switch back on. I have two batteries, I have charged them both fully, but the camera still wont switch back on. Can anybody please help me? Thank you!!

    Hi, the batteries are the square Lithium Ion ones, not standard batteries so I don't have any others that I can try. The charger appears to be working ok, as the light comes on. Unfortunatly I do not have another appliance that accepts the batteries.

Try to use another 2 batteries. The problem could be with the batteries or the charger. By the way, did you checked batteries voltage or tried to use them in another appliance ?

From your description, it seems something wrong with the connection between your card and camera.
As a suggest that, you can use a memory card reader to reduce the consumption of your camera accessories. If there is something wrong with your memory card, you can replace it easily and with low cost, but if there is something wrong with camera accessories, that's more trouble.

Have you checked the batteries on the camera? Weak batteries will shut the camera off any time ther is a call for power that exceeds the charge left in the battery.If after you change or charge the battery and you are still having this issue let me know and we can go from there.
Please use Sony Cyber-shot batteries for DSC-H2 model camera
If your camera keeps shutting down and not allowing any pictures to be taken, use the 3 pixel setting. It may allow you to get at least some use out of the camera. After reading numerous reviews on this unit and comparing the performance of mine to that of a friend who also has it, I have to say that SONY made a slew of defective cameras and this should have been a recall. Some cameras seem to work fine, thus the good reviews. Others, and there are many many of these, shut down unexpectedly, won't work well on the 5 mega pixel setting, take terrible pictures (especially in low light) and generally aren't worth the money you paid for them.
What I soon learned was that it was running low on battery power and needed to be off most of the time or you would go through batteries like butter. Even when the camera is off and loaded with new cells it will quickly deplete itself. So you have to turn the thing off if you aren't about to shoot...this makes catching that special shot almost impossible, especially since when you do turn it on you then have to wait and wait and wait for the shutter to snap. Forget anything with low light

Low battery warning


What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.
