DSC-T7 Power Problems

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...

LCD screen went black

No. It is likely that there is still water in it. It's very important that you take the battery out and do not try to use it. Take it to a repair shop and be SURE to tell them it had water in it so they can take the appropriate steps to clean and protect it.

Recharge of flash

Sony H1 camera has a delay to recharge the flash and I hope that you know that as you are using it for the last three years. If the time delay is a new issue check the MAH of the battery to ensure that it will be above 2200 at least. If the MAH is below 2200 it is natural that the time delay will be more to recharge the flash. If my solution proves good please rate it. Regards.

DSC-T7 - Noise in image

No, not really. For a digicam, it has simply amazingly low noise and a very sharp image. Your shot was shot at ISO320 - there's naturally going to be a little noise in the image. Even DSLRs when shot at higher ISOs like that tend to pick up a little bit of noise. Try shooting at lower ISOs like 64 or 100 to keep noise levels to a minimum. Even in your pic, I didn't see any noise in the shadows, looks quite good.
