Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot W290 Digital Camera ?
Recently purchased the Sony DSC-W290 and I have
\015 Recently purchased the Sony DSC-W290 and I've had to re-charge the battery about 6 times already. Battery life seems oddly short and then gives no warning other than a 1 time "empty battery" icon flashing before going totally dead. Is this normal? I am not using camera excessively, shooting much video or anything that would account for quick battery death. Advice?\015
How long do you usually charged the batt? to make charge last slightly longer leave the batt inside the charger for an hour after the charger light goes off. if you have a fully charged batt you should be able to take approx. 300 pics or 2.5hrs approx.batt life. for viewing pics it should give you approx. 6800 pics and approx. 5.5 hrs. of course, number of still images and and batt life may vary depending on the camera settings.so if you're zooming in and out,using the flash,going from camera to play mode, turning cam on and off, using other settings and features of the camera, this will cause the batt to drain much faster.also ambient temperature also affects batt life.if it's very cold, the batt drains a bit faster.also, it's recommended that if you're not using the camera to remove the batt.retaining the camera settings, date & time will cause batt to drain even if your not using it. if did this and still you think it's odd that your batt drains quickly and looses charge even if it's fully charge, it might also indicate that what you might be a defective batt. one way to find out is to try using the same type of batt from a friend or a relative that has one to confirm and further isolate issue.anyway, supplied accessories has the same warranty that applies to your camera.so you may send it out and have it replaced if needed.hope this helps.thanks:)

Problem Hi, I just recently purchased a DSC-W50 camera off ebay and I google the battery type and found that this camera uses Sony NP-BG1. I bought the battery from an ebay seller and received it today. I inserted it into the battery slot and I got a message stating " for use with compatible battery only" . 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

I purchased a Sony Mavica cd250 camera in Nov 2002. I had no problems with it until about 4 years ago. I purchased a new battery, and all was fine. Until recently, I had not used my camera for several months. I could not get the camera to hold a charge (after it was plugged in and charged, I could unplug it and it would stay on for a few minutes. When I turned it off, it would not come back on). I tried purchasing another battery from Battery Outfitters, but the battery they sold me was not comp

My camera (Sony DSC-T100) is about 3 years old. It has worked perfectly in that time but recently, outdoor photos show a lot pink where it does not belong (sky, side walks, etc.). Indoor pictures still look great, with or without flash. Sounded similar to some of the bad CCD discussions I have seen, but my camera seems to have been built after that problem was supposedly fixed by Sony. I tried calling the number (866-703-7669) I have seen in several postings, but it does not seems to work.

I purchased a Sony cybershot DSC- S930 and inserted the Lexar memory stick (supposedly compatible with a sony camera) and upon turning the camera on there is an error message stating there is not internal memory (as the internal memory only has room for 2 photos). I cannot seem to be able to use the memory (8Gb) and have tried to go into Setup - Format- but there are no options to format the stick, only to erase the internal memory. Any help would be appreciated!

Sony DSC-W100 My screen (LCD?) looks like it is shattered, no picture. Where to purchase a new screen and is it fairly easy to replace ? The pictures come out fine, but I would rather be able to delete if I don't care for a picture. Hope this makes sense. Some say, to purchase a new camera, but this camera wasn't that reasonable!

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
