Question about Samsung S630 Digital Camera

Camera shuts off after a few seconds

My samsung s630 camera only comes on for a few seconds then shuts off saying "low battery". When it is on for those few seconds, the shutter button won't push down allowing me to take a picture. Also the lens is opened out and will not go back in. I changed batteries and even brought new rechargable one thinking that my old ones several times. I tried all of the options for taking pictures and the only thing that works is the video program.

    I'm having the same problem, and I can't find the directions that came with the camera. I went back to walmart the person that tried to help me didn't know what was going on. She just said I think you need a new camera. I've only used it twice.

It may require a firmware upgrade. That will involve going to the Samsung website, following links to support/downloads and checking to see if there's an update for your camera.

Samsung S630 camera says "low battery" then shuts off


This camera needs rechargeable batteries usually lasts about a week with much use. I thought what a waste of batteries then tried these rechargable and the situation hasn't occured . it is probably because it is small digtal camera which uses alot of power.

Low battery


Your cam has a not so rare battery drain defect, mine had the same problem.

call Samsung and send yours in, they will either fix it or give you a new one.

Samsung S630 Camera


Hi, you may have seem my postings on other Samsung bogs, but this is my update. My little red S630 keeps on ticking and has not had one problem with the blings, beeps and shutting down SINCE I tapped the camera lightly on both sides--but not top or bottom--of camera. Apparently this made things go back in alignment. And I also wiggled the lens as the lens was stuck and not retract. I had bought the camera in Aug 07 and it had taken great picts and was so easy to use..until the shut down with beeps/blings.
I am reporting that here today, this March 19th, the camera is still going strong and I have had it out on the farm here in Tenn and in snow and cold weather and it stilll works! It went from being super sensitive to a very durable camera. And i just throw it in my purse or backpack. No case or extra protection. And my four year old granddaughter uses it also.
My camera also had all the problems that everyone has mentioned--and saying card full when I had only taken a few shots or batteries already used up when they were new and I had just inserted them.
I use the very basic Kodak rechargable batteries and get plenty shots. And even when it says low battery, if I shut the camera down and wait a few minutes, and turn it back on, I can get many more shots. I have a total of FOUR batteries...two in the camera and two that I keep charged up and always with me.
That way, I never have to worry abt the dreaded camera shut down when some important shot comes up. The 15.00 or 20.00 dollars (can't remember exact price) I paid for the Kodak battery recharger with the batteries has paid for itself many times over. The regular batteries were going to cost me a fortune at the rate I was going thru them.
I have also tried going back to regular batteries and I found the Energizer batteries works fine. So, it is nice to know I can use them if I find myself in some situtaion where they are the only batteries available.
I did what the others suggested also. I have the things turned off that I don't need or rarely use. I don't have the sound on and I don't keep the LCD on. I shoot in 1mp most of time which is all I need for my purposes--granddaughter and my dogs-- and they email very easy.
I still wish that Samsung would address this problem and make it known what the solution is. If our solution of getting it back in aligment is the answer, how much better it would be if they would make this known rather than have many many folks buy camera and only give up on it and then give it negative remarks. I see the comments on almost every site I go to that mentions the Samsung cameras.
It is really a great camera for the price, but it has to work. I am curious by nature and just did not want to let the camera problem defeat me!
Hope this helps and hope you will post back later.

S630 camera not working !!!!!!!


If the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues.

You could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved - Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

Third, you could try cleaning the lens with a soft clean cloth.
Make sure you are wiping gently.

Fourth, try to take a picture using this way:
- Press and hold the shutter button halfway first for 3-5 seconds,
and then press it all the way down

Fifth, if it still does the same thing, then your camera needs to be repaired by a technician.

If you want to know where you could send it, just call the hotline of the manufacturer of your product so you could get assistance
about this matter.
