Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V1 Digital Camera ?

I got a sony cyber-shot model number dsc-v1 and the battery is dead and I don't have the charger. What do I do


Answers :

You need either the AC-LS5 power adapter which plugs into the back of the camera to charge the battery when it's in the camera, or better still a Sony BC-VC10. The latter item charges up to two batteries at once leaving the camera free for use.

There are third party chargers available but I've found out the hard way that they often either take forever to charge the battery or at worst damage the InfoLithium chip inside the battery. As genuine batteries are expensive and the genuine charger costs less than a single battery it's both a gamble and a false economy to use anything else.

I hope that you've found my posting to be of use and ask in return only that you take a moment to rate my answer.

I've provided links to the BC-VC10 below and further down to the cheaper AC-LS5. I'm not suggesting that you use these suppliers, just that you use the links to give you a starting point to shop around for yourself:-

Ebay BC-VC10

Amazon BC-VC10

Ebay AC-LS5

Amazon AC-LS5


Buy one from your local camera store

My sony cyber-shot DSC-H55 worked great until recently. It won't turn on or ANYTHING. I had to buy a replacement charger since during my move I lost it. It says that it is compatable with my battery but even after charging, (the charger even says the battery is charged) it won't turn on, the play button even won't turn work! It hasn't been dropped and I've only used it like 4 times since I bought it! HELP!!!

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
