Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera
The camera was working fine. I didn't use it for a couple months. The next time I tried to turn it on it wouldn't turn on or do anything. I put new batteries and it still wouldn't come on or work at all. Can you tell me what else I can try to do to get it to work?
Since you didn't use it for a long time, you are sure you didn't leave any batteries inside the camera for that long. If you did the batteries will most likely have leaked out inside the camera, and caused internal damage. One tell tale sign is that when you took out the old batteries it would be oily or the battery is bloateds. In light of this, I suggest that you clean the battery compartment out, most especially the metal connectors, since that can also be cause of not getting a power and the camera not working at all.
Did you also use HIGH CAPACITY ALKALINE BATTERIES (Energizer e2 or something similar to that) right? Try a different batteries. Since digital camera's require these types of batteries to even run. If you put regular batteries in there, it won't turn on the camera at all even if the batteries are new. If the camera also has a reset switch/button you can also try to do that. Most camera's have this kind of switch. So you may have to check the manual of your camera on this one. If you don't have one you can download it here: http://www.samsungcamera.com/customer/download/cus_down_main.asp?key=401
The only other thing I can think off is did the camera came with an AC adapter? If it does, try using that instead and see of the camera can turn on using it's AC adapter. If it does, it's possible there is damage in the battery compartment connectors.
Hope this helps!

And here is the solution... Eureka - we have found a cure. Internal memory of 16MB is shot. Buy a memory stick, insert and voila.... The camera is back too life. And apologies to Samsung....This is really an extrodinary little camera.
