Answers :

The best batteries for digital cameras are the Sanyo eneloop NiMH rechargeables. You can find them on eBay. I would try these before tossing the camera.

Sony Cybershot DSC W-50. All works except later part of zoom. (Zooms to x3, then no more.) Makes a noise like it's simply run out of battery power, but rechargeable battery is fine. Have assumed there is also an internal battery, but can't find where it is (to replace it?) Have also tried the (thin) instructions for what to do in this case ("Charge the rechargeable, leave for half an hour") but it doesn't help. Any suggestions (including for example where best to send it if no DIY so

When I put the camera on I can see the pics I have stored on the camera although I have to scroll through a black screen for 3 or 4 clicks first. When I switch it to take a picture I just have a black screen with some of the menu showing. I reluctantly recharged the batteries even though I didn't have the battery low warning and it hasn't helped. Can you help please? I also did a reset to default by holding the menu button.

My cannon a 530 says that it has a memmory card error, and it shows memmory card locked momentarally at bottom of screen, i tried to unlock with the slide on the card itself, but that did not help. i put a new memmory card in and it shows the same. i also noticed a watch type battery next to the aa batteries, could that battery be the problem ? i have never changed that battery and this camera is several years old.


No that's not likely the problem. The new card is probably the issue, especially if it is 4GB or higher. There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC c ... Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera
