DSC-F717 won't turn on

\015 I've had a CyberShot DSC-F717 for about 5 years, and just today I noticed that it won't turn on. Nothing happens when I toggle the power switch, it just stays black. However, when I plug in the charger, the orange charging "lightning bolt" stays on. Curious. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!\015

Answers :

You are correct. The battery has lost it`s life.

\015\012Contact your nearest Sony dealer and ask them for the NP-F50 battery which I think your camera uses.
\015\012
\015\012The reason why the battery still shows it is charging ( if your interested ) is due to the sensing cct - you will see your battery has three poles and not just 2. The sensing pin is faulty due to the buildt in PCB having a problem. The batteries probably are still ok inside, but the sensing cct does the actual charge control.

Sony DSC-F717 I have a Sony DSC-F717 camera which has worked well(except for the incredibly slow record time in TIFF) until now. The camera stays dark as if the shutter is stuck. I can turn the camera on, see the readings(battery, memory space etc.), view images previously recorded on the memory stick ? but not see anything through the lens, either on LCD or through the Finder. Is something locked up or stuck and how do I unlock it?

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change anything. This is one of four digicams I own (also a Nikon D90, SONY DSC F717, and a Canon) and I like the W150 for some purposes because it is compact and has a viewfinder, not just a screen. I have been unable to find a similar camera. What can I do to fix the problem? Gerry Meisels [email protected]
