Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera ?
Battery life on sony DSC-h1 is shortening
\015 Pop in a fresh set of AA batteries, and the camera will shut down after 5-10 shots and claim the battery is low. I can start the camera again later and the meter will show full battery, but then it will show half, quarter, give me the slash battery and out again.Seeing the number of comments here suggests a design flaw.\015
Apparently, i was told by a sony sales guy, to use sony batteries WITH the sony charger. Don't use another kind of battery in the sony charger or use an engergizer charger with duracell batteries...we'll see if that fixes the problem as for I have the exact same problem! I'll let you know what happens! (though I'm very suspicious that the guy didn't know what he was talking about! worth a shot though since I've tried a lot of batteries and chargers to try and fix the problem with my H1!)

Sony DSC H-1 battery life is way too short, not a battery problem. I found that there is a 1.9 volt draw on the batteries when the camera is turned OFF. Can I do a repair or is this a factory repair, which I DON'T trust ?

My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 stopped working. I press the power button and nothing happens. I tried changing batteries, but it shows no sign of life. It was left in the trunk of my car overnight, inside a luggage bag. The temperature was close to freezing, so maybe the cold weather had something to do with the problem. I left it in my closet for about a week, and when I tried to use it, the power would not turn on. Thanks for your time.

My Sony Cybershot DSC-T70 won't turn on.? I have a Sony Cybershot camera model DSC-T70. It is a little over a year old. The camera takes a Rechargeable lithium ion battery (D type NP-BD1).

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

My Sony DSC-W130 camera when turned off will not turn back on until I remove the battery and reinstert . Also if the battery is not removed it will drain after a period of time. It is like the On/Off switch is not properly turning the device off and as such when you attempt to turn on again the restart function for the software in the camera does not execute properly. I have recently started using soem OEM batteries as well as the supplied SONY batteriers at times. . Maybe this is effecting

I have a sony DSC-W150 and the camera turns on but it says "for use with compatible battery only" and then turns off. I talked to a sony representative and they told me to take the battery out and then hold the power butter for 30 seconds but that didn't work. They told me that it is probably the firmware and said it would cost over 200.00 dollars to get it fixed is there any way I can fix this myself? What else can be the problem?
