Having problems with your Sony DSC-T70 Digital Camera ?

My camera (DSC-T70) got wet (shame on me). When I first turned it on, it worked fine but then it threw an error that said my battery wasn't capatible. I thought maybe I fried the battery so I bought a cheap generic one and it still threw the same error. I then thought maybe I needed to use an original Sony battery. I tried one of them and it still isn't working. It will come on for a second and the screen will show but then it throws the error and turns off. Is my camera toast??..:-(


Answers :

IT'S FIXED!!!..:-) I'm not sure exactly what did it but I tried a little of everything. I tried taking the battery out while holding the power button then I tried taking a picture in that brief moment before the error would appear. I would get it to snap the picture but then the error would come up and I couldn't get any further. I then tried shorting out the battery. I just used a fork and held it to the 3 connections for a few seconds and then charged it for a few minutes. It still wasn't working but then I would open the shutter to turn the camera on and shut it before the error would appear to turn it off. I did that about 4 or 5 times and the camera just started working again. I don't know if it was turning it on and off so quickly or a combination of something but it's working now. I've taken that battery back out and charged it and put it back in and still it's working fine. Definitely worth a try. Oh yea, I even got the generic battery to work in it...:-)

I bought new batteries from local store (one from Walmart and one from Meijer) but both would not work in my Cybershot DSC-H55. On powering up, I get the message "For use with compatible battery only" then it shuts down. The battery that came with my camera still works fine. I thought I had bought bad batteries but I returned for exchange, and 2 replacement batteries from 2 different stores still shows the same error message. Either the stores are selling 3+ year old batteries that have gone b

I have a Fujifilm Finepix F50SE camera that stopped working sometime ago. I charged it but it still would not work so I thought the battery might be bad and bought a new one. The camera worked for a very short while, then stopped. I bought another battery, but it would not work. I then thought the charger was bad, but it did charge for a good while. The camera's zoom is out and will not retract and the camera will not turn on. I don't have a camera repair shop anywhere near me, especially

I have had my camera for about 4-5 years now and my battery wouldnt hold a charge for the past several months then it got to the point where it wouldnt turn on at all, so I assumed I just needed a new battery.

Camera jam Ricoh Caplio R5 - tried to switch it on to take a picture, and lens came out part way but the camera then switched off. Flat battery perhaps, so charged battery overnight and tried again with similar results. Lens still part way out, maybe some whirring noises, screen flashes but then camera switches off. Any ideas? Dead battery / broken charger? - or problem with camera? And how to check (I only have the one battery)


All the R series Ricohs have a pretty complicated lens system employing 2 swing-out lenses which can get stuck pretty easily, or worse, broken. If you are very good at taking things to bits you might have a go at fixing it (I've done several that wer ... Ricoh Caplio R5 Digital Camera

No matter what I do, my camera keeps giving me a "Battery Depleted" message whenever I try to turn it on. It's a Pentax Optio E40, and I've only had it a couple of weeks. It was working fine, but then one day when I tried to turn it on, I got this error. I replaced the batteries, but the error still came. I've checked the orientation of the batteries, tried re-inserting them, etc, but nothing seems to work. Please help! Thank you!

My Finepix s5700 will not turn on even with new batteries. The last thing I did was delete some photos from the memory card. The next time I went to turn it on I thought the batteries were dead and so I replaced them with new ones, but it still will not turn on. And the camera was not dropped.


A possible cause could be the "cut off" switch for the xd picture card door. Check the plastic tabs on the door for damage. If it looks ok then open and close it a few times to see if the micro switch on the board is stuck. This is a cut off switch t ... Fuji FinePix S700 Digital Camera
