Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera ?

Camera doesn't turn on or do anything

\015 I downloaded a couple of pictures onto my Apple. I left camera on the computer console and worked on printing the pictures. \302\240The next day I was going to use the camera and it would not turn on. \302\240I thought perhaps it needed charging so I put on charger. \302\240 That afternoon I went to use the camera and it would not turn on no matter what I did. \302\240 The camera was not dropped or banged while on console or charger. \302\240Camera is a little over a year old. What now?\015

Answers :

I had a similar problem. Mt battery was dead but showed a charge when I put it in the camera. See if you can borrow a battery from another owner or camera shop and try it.
