Soney cybersthot dsc-s30 charging issue

\015 I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-S30 camera I got it second hand from a coworker. I has been working great until recently. I wanted to charge the battery it was getting low. I plugged it in with the battery charger I recived with the camera. It charged it great the first 3 times, it worked fine. Now the light will turn on, showing it chargeing and then the light shuts off in the next two minutes. It doesn't charge the battery at all and I don't want to kill the battery so I haven't been useing my camera. I tried several times making sure all connections were right and battery was in right. What needs to be done?\015

Answers :

I replaced the battery. The new one keeps a charge and lets the ac adapter charge the battery. I plan on purchasing a new battery and recycling the old one.

Power issue we bought my sony mvc-cd400 in 2002, so i understand that it is old and out of date. But up until a month ago it has been a great camera. I had the camera on the charger and noticed that when i unplugged it that it did not hold the charge, i returned it to the charger over night and it still had no charge. we replaced the battery the same issue, as long as the camera is plugged in to the charger i can use it. is this a fixable issue?

When I leave the fully charged battery in the camera for about 10 days it gets completely discharged. This is the original Nikon battery. I though the battery is old and bought a genuine Nikon battery. The issue is the same.

Battery Charge My DSC-T1 battery does not seem to charge, when I plug it in, the yellow charge light comes on for awhile, than goes out. If I drop down the cover to turn it on, it comes on, and the battery shows not even half charged.

Hi guys... I'm having the same issue with my Sony DSC-T33 as has been described here by many other people. I've done the Reset, and the Power Reset, online with the Sony Tech people.

So I bring it up and am told that is not in their database, so they don't know about it. What? I'm given a phone number for the "Customer Relations Team". Now in my online research

Canon Powershot SD450 E18 problem: The camera lense would not open and reported error code E18 on power-up and then would shut down.

When I powered down, the lense did not completely retract. I tried re-powering on but nothing happened. The camera is not getting any power. I figured the battery died so I re-charged it.

DSC-T7 Blurriness Last week I purchased a DSC-T7 and I am having several problems with picture quality. Mainly, any white or light object in the picture (whether it be a t-shirt or a blanket etc.) has a extremely blurry edge, almost like a halo. Other areas of the picture then would be rather dark. I don't think it is an autofocus issue. I have set the EV to -1.0, the WB to Auto, the contrast, sharpness, and I everything else to normal. Can the camera be adjusted to fix this? thanks


Try this test:\015\012Mount the camera on a tripod or set it on a secure base and use the self timer to trip the shutter. Doing this will totally eliminate any possibility of camera shake causing blurriness.\015\012\015\012If the picture is still blu ... Sony DSC-T7 Digital Camera
