Hello
These are my first hacks and first one Sony W200 and shutter works and internal battery okay, running wires from + and - to external 3 cell pack, get error " for use compatible battery only" powers up then shut down.

Camera 2, is Panasonic DMC-FS7 with almost same problem, powers up, error, then shuts down, using battery + and - from inside camera, to external out.

Camera 3, Olympus VG-165, with External battery wires again and wont even power up.

All these cameras work fine with internal batterys, power up hack and shutter. Could someone please help me, really do not know whats wrong.

Thanks
Wayne

From what I was told Wayne you need to keep the original battery in the camera as well as externals.......there will be a thread I had started on it, contains some useful information.

Read it before you start to add any externals to a camera using its original battery. Some battery types are not good to mix and match.

Some cameras like the Fuji will work with just a externals.  What are you using for externals.
