Is the AC Adapter one with a barrel plug or USB? Some usb chargers and computers will not charge a Sony properly.

I have one of each, it will not charge on either. I have heard that it costs about $125.00 to have sony to replace the battery. I am wondering if it is worth doing their exchange program for $99.00 and wait 3 months for a replacement or try to find a local repair service? or just give up and buy another one.

Whoever replaced your battery should fix it.

Yeah. Didn't you say you just had the battery replaced?
