Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera ?

Camera says use with compatible battery only. This started a week ago with the camera's original battery. Then I bought a replacement NP-FG1 and it still says the same thing.


Answers :

Please check battery terminals inside battery compartment of camera, clean these terminals with cotton bud dipped, moisturized with alcohol.
This problem comes when central terminal does not make good contact with battery.
Thanks.

I just bought I PNY 4gb memory card. When I try to use it in my 5mp camera (Kodak Easyshare DX4530) the camera says it needs to be formatted and once I go through these things, it still won't work. Do these cameras need a specific type of memory card?

I bought a Polaroid i733 Digital Camera for my daughter in March, 2007. A couple of weeks ago when she went to change the batteries, the lens got stuck half way out. Now it won't work.
