I have had my camera for over a year now without a problem. It is a Sony Cybershot 7.2 Megapixels. Everytime I turn it on a black screen and the message - "For Use with Compatible Battery Only" comes on and then it shuts down before I can take a picture. My battery is a Sony, G Type, Lithium Ion, NP-BG1. I have two of these batteries and I've charged them both fully and nothing seems to help. Is it the battery or the camera? Help! Thanks!
