Sony DSC-W80 Problems - Camera not used much

\015 My Sony, DSC-W80 has no image when on. I got the camera last Christmas and it hasn't been used much. It started with a problem where the zoom l;ens would go in and out several times and then flash a message to shut down and re-start (something like that). I just turned it on to write this message and now it has no image displayed.Any ideas?\015

FROM WHAT I CAN FIND ON THE SONY WEBSITE AND OTHER SITES, THIS MODEL HAS MANY STRANGE PROBLEMS AND MANY ERROR CODES. YOU MIGHT TRY THE " RESET " THEY LIST TO REMOVE THE BATTERY, HIT THE ON SWITCH FOR 5-10 SECONDS THEN REINSTALL THE BATTERY AND POWER UP THE CAMERA AGAIN AND SEE IF THIS CLEARS THE ERROR. YOU HAVE TO ADMIT THAT YOUR CAMERA HAS DONE SOME VERY INTERESTING THINGS IN THE PAST. I WOULD HAVE SENT IT IN FOR SERVICE WHILE IT WAS UNDER WARRANTY. IT IS SHOWING SOME SIGNS OF REAL PROBLEMS AND IT MAY HAVE TO BE SENT IN FOR SERVICE. BUT, PLEASE TRY THE RESET TO SEE IF THIS WILL WORK. I HOPE IT WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM. PLEASE REPLY TO:ARCLIGHT1217

I charged it for 2 hours and I got the same message. has anyone had this type of thing happen? Could it be the battery or am I using the wrong battery type. Please advise. Thanks

Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly. Much faster than when the camera was originally purchased. A pair of new AA batteries only lasts for 12 - 24 photos. Brand new rechargeables fully charged are totally drained after sitting in the camera for a few weeks with no use. The camera is definitely OFF. This did not happen three years ago when I bought the camera, it started in the last 6 months. I can't go on like this!

I have a problem with my sony cyber-shot dsc T-3. Everything is all right except that there is probably a problem with the lense as the image (on the screen when I want to take a photo or film) is not right (it is pink, dark with lines on it). It is not a problem with the screen, because I can look at my photos / videos which were done before this problem happened. I think it is because I tried to use the camera in a hospital (I had a baby last week) when I was in a surgery room. Maybe too magne

My Sony DSC-W80 camera displays "Turn the power off and on again" after the lens make several efforts to protrude fully. The last time I used this camera, I was under the impression the battery had died, and indeed, it was rather low. But now the battery has fully charged and it will not work. I did not bang the camera on anything or drop it. The camera case for it is kept clean of dirt, sand, etc. There is no visible debris on the visual lens themselves that I can see in the few attempts it

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?
