Help me please ...sure I have to buy new battery but why is working a few seconds when is turning ON when is charging and after is dark... First problem was a 3 years ago when after overheating on the sun start /stop button is out of order (but I m using the same one on the touch screen panel). I gonna take a risk to buy one for 50 euro but is better to ask professionals. Cheers.
Just replace it. The battery's probably dead, and it could bet even worse than that if it was overheating. 6 years is a lot for low end stuff like that, and newer sony cameras with better specs start at just a bit more than it would cost to have it repaired or replace the battery.
