Having problems with your Sony Mavica MVC-FD75 Digital Camera ?

I have a great Mavica FD75 camera and the batteries will not hold a charge. When I put them on the charger the light says lit for a couple of minutes then goes out. I can take 6-10 pictures and get the battery flash again. The camera is about 10 years old and I have never changed the small round battery. Any suggestions?

Answers :

You probably need a new Sony "Infolithium" battery, by now. The battery lasts a long time
\015\012but 10 yrs IS a long time! If you've never repl
\015\012aced the battery, it's time to. They charge ok
\015\012but don't last very long when they're near the
\015\012end of their life! (Sounds like what you're
\015\012describing.) The little disc battery only works

My Pentax W90 camera won't stop taking pictures when I turn it on. At first, it would take 2 pictures without me pressing the shutter and the screen would get "locked" (no menu or other buttons would do anything). Then, after changing the battery, the camera continually takes pictures until I turn it off. The flash goes off with each picture. I took it in the ocean with me and I noticed it started while I was snorkeling. I don't think I got anywhere near the 20 foot depth limit. I dried it

Camera's about 2 years old. With a fully charged battery it will take about 8 to 10 photos and then the battery indicates total discharge. How ever, if the camera is turned off for several minutes and then back on it will again take several pictures and but then again shows that the battery is totally discharged. I have tried installing a new "out of the box" battery in the camera but I still get the same sequence of events. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it.

Camera will not "click" to take a picture. I had two old batteries which I charged -- no help. Then I bought a new battery on line -- still no good. I have noticed over past several months camera seems "reluctant" to take a picture -- might have to try a few times to get it to "snap."

There may be dirt or debris that collected under the button causing it not to work properly. Try using an electronics cleaner on the button. This will clean out any dirt and hopefully allow the camera to "snap" pictures better. Here is a link to e ... Digital Cameras

Broken Camera Well, I dropped my camera, and tada, it is messed up. It turns on, it takes pictures, but the only button that works is the on/off button and the button to take the pictures. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5634183 is the camera, I've had it for 2 years, so the warranty is up. The setting I had it to before had no flash, so now I can't take pictures with flash. If I could get any help, that would be great!

One of the cables connecting to the other buttons probably came out of its socket. It needs to be opened up and checked 1st. Sometimes maybe there is a crack which needs to mended to restore the reset of the button. ... Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

Hi. My Nikon Coolpix s6000 works nice but has one problem--it tends to turn off fairly often on its own. The camera is about 2 months old and the battery is fully charged, yet when reviewing pictures or getting ready to take a picture, it will just turn off unexpectedly. Any ideas if this is common or what may be wrong?
