Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A350K Digital Camera ?

I can't switch on my Sony a350 camera. It's only 5 months old. I am sure the battery is fully charged.

Answers :

Check and make sure your battery is completely charged and possibly try a new battery at a store, or buy a new one, this would be a lot cheaper than a repair.
The next thing is, if it is still not working, call Sony, give them the information for your camera and check to see if it is still under warranty, if it is, you may need your receipt, they may fix it for free.
Other wise get it repaired.

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

Dear Sirs, my Sony DSC F828 would switch off partly through a photo shoot and then it is a problem to get it back on again. If I remove the battery it would come on for a few seconds or untill it has booted properly and then switch off again.

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later.

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures. Later I wanted to review the pics and when I pushed the on/off button, the lens came out but no image appeared. I could not shut off the camera, so had to pop the battery out. I am not sure now if the lens went back in. I pushed the on button again and the lens moved out; the display lit up with the message
