Question about Sony DSC-T7 Digital Camera
Howdy folks, looking for a bit of advice here. I got a new T7 two days ago along with a spare battery (Sony, not cheap competitor). When I unboxed the camera I put in the original battery, camera turned on, it had 4 minutes of charge in it. I charged up the spare fully, put it in the camera and it turned on. I left it an hour or two and tried to power it on again but no luck, not even a flicker of a green light. When I had the original battery fully charged I put this in and the camera powered on no problem. Again I left it switched off for a while and the same thing happened, it wouldn't power on. When I remove whichever battery is in the camera once it won't power on and put it in the charger, it only takes a few seconds for the charge light to go off, indicating that the battery is almost fully charged! So seeing as the problem is happening with 2 batteries, it seems that the camera deosn't like turning on unless the battery is fully charged. Although if I use it continuously (i.e. take a few pics/movies then turn it off, turn it back on a few mins later) it powers up no problem. I don't know where the issue lies, I know its only 2 days old but I am going on vacation next week and seeing as I bought it from a web site, I won't get a replacement before I go (would obviously like to take it with...) I would really appreciate any tips/advice. I've checked the contacts and they seem clean enough...
The only and the only solution is to get the replacement as this seems to be a defect in the camera and you should get it change immediately.
