Question about Samsung Digimax A7 Digital Camera

Repairing my camera...

Hello guys/girls... Help me... I lent my brothers camera and took really good care of it, unfortunately - I think it happened in the plane - one of the two pieces that protect the lens is not there anymore... So it is only half way protected. This can not be good. I live in Belgium. Where or whom should I turn to to find the piece or to get it repaired? I don't know why but I think if I'd find the piece and just would put in it there, it work like that.. Or is this a totally wrong impression? I'm so depressed I can't even watch the 500 pictures I took at the Caribbean doin' my shoots :( because it makes me think of the camera problem. Thanks a lot!

I dropped my Polaroid i735 Digital Camera once and the screen has been blurry...even the pictures turn out blurry. Is there any way to fix the screen?

You dropped it only once? Hmmmm ....

I don't think the problem is with the screen.
It's more like the lens can't focus properly anymore, and there is nothing you can do to fix it.

I'd take it to my local camera repair place, and give them the classic:
"Don't ask me what happened. I lent it to my baby-brother, and he said the camera worked OK."

They just may give you a free estimate.

I did...

The pc board in the camera powers the lens motor. If this has stopped working, there is nothing you can do but to send it off for service. Only they will have the equipment to repair it. (You have transistor damage)

The lens is blurry and makes a buzzing noise when turned on

Well all the moving parts of the lent are plastic and most likely the reason Y you hear that sound it's because one of the hummmm the tiny wheels , that are connected to the mechanism of the focus on the lent is busted..... so replace that.

(some times if you take the camera to the beach the sand get to the mechanism ans stock the wells. In that case cleaning of the lent will suffice)

Now parts are not that easy to find some times companys only sale the complete lent and it will cost you, in that case you will need to decide if "REPAIR" or "BUY NEW" camera will be better

I got a hold of the service center and they said to try turning it on with out the memory card in it - do you have additional memory? - any way that was the rubbish they were feeding me. I tried it and obviously it still didn't work. so i have to take it to get repaired - apparently there is no other way. I will let you know what happens.

Camera does not turn on without charger base

I took mine to Radio Shack, because of that same problem. The guy there said that the battery card was not all of the way pushed in. Also, Radio Shack had sold me a 4G memory card to go with it and he, a different guy from Radio Shack, said that that was too much. It does work with my 1G card and he said it might work with a 2G. Who knows. With the battery pushed in correctly, it might work with the 4G.
I have no book, users guide. A girl a the store accidentally cut in half when she opened the package for me. No, she did not give me a new book! Yes, I asked.

D50 wont power up

I have the same problem as well. It is not the battery. I took my camera to the store and had them put a new battery in while there. It never turned on. I really like this camera. I once took about 100 continuous shots. It was great. But now nothing. The D60 camera I have is a higher mega pixel, but does not do alot of things that the D50 does. I wish someone really had the answer as to how to fix it without a high cost.

Did you try to reinitialize? Setup menu go down to the third Setup#1 menu and make sure you click OK to reinitialize. That's what the manual said.

Lens problem

You have damaged lens barrel mech. Within the lens barrel, there are couple of tiny plastic gears and any damage to one of those gear will cause this kind of problem. I'm not sure it would be worth repairing the problem because of the cost of repair around $100. Good luck.

Lens won't pop out! HELP!!!!!

Hello detroit73, This is a mechanical problem. The camera can't align the lents and proper focus or extend them them due to some sort of servomotor failure. Because of that, it tries to get a proper fix, but as it fails, it thinks that some object got the lents pushed or something like that and it askes you for a "reboot". You can't "hard boot" the camera, even a complete reset woun't help as this error is given by the camera's microcontroller circuitry (some sort of camera processor). The only fix can by given by an autorised service center. Even they may find out that you need the whole lens mechanism changed. This is because the lens assembly is a very delicate mechanism, including small coils, motors and the actual lens. If some of this components get loose, they can jamm or damage other parts, preventing the lens mechanism to extend.
