After leaving my Sony DSC-T2 camera unused for only a couple of days the battery was flat. I recharged it fully but again it only lasted a day or two. I assumed the battery was dead and I purchased a new Sony NP-BD1 battery and charged it correctly. This new battery is behaving exactly the same as the old one, only holding a charge for a day or two at most. It seems the camera is draining the battery when it is switched off, or maybe the charger is faulty ??? Any ideas?? many thanks - Geoff

I've just bought a Coolpix S200 for my nephew. Although new It did not come with a battery or charger.These I bought on E-Bay separately (with the correct specifications). After I charged the battery I fitted it a few hour later and when I switched on I get the message BATTERY TEMPERATURE HIGH and the camera goes into shutdown mode as described in the manual. The battery could not have been "hot" and neither was the environment in which I was working. I partially discharged the battery -

My new Samsung WB650 camera has just frozen, whilst I was reviewing the various functions. It won't respond to any of the controls, and won't even switch off. If I remove and replace the battery it has no effect. If I then switch it on the 'on' light comes on, but it still wont respond or switch off. Can you let me know what has happened and if there is way to restore normal function?
