Question about Samsung Digimax A7 Digital Camera

1 Answer


I have a Samsung A7. After buying new batteries the camara will not turn on. With the new batteries fitted and after pressing the power button the lense will come out and the screen goes blank. the camara will not turn off. When the camara is in the video mode it will turn on as normal and you can access the menu but it will not let you do any thing with it.

Does your battery work with regular AA alkaline batteries ? They have higher voltage than NiMH rechargeable. I'm having a similar problem, just discovered today that my camera works fine with AA alkaline batteries.

My kodak md1063 digital camera switches on then straight of,have fitted new battery no difference.

My kodak Easyshare C653 camera is 2.5 years old when suddenly did this a few times then completely refused to turn on at all. Research showed me that this is a firmware issue in Kodak cameras. Kodak website said it will look at it and try to fix it for minimum $70 which is not worth it in my case as I paid $130 for the camera brand new 2.5 years ago. So either pay the $ for kodak to fix or buy a new camera is the solution. I am buying a new camera but it won't be a kodak this time as I want a camera that last years and won't go dead after warranty runs out.

First off, There is nothing inside the camera that is user, by you, fixable. As simple as it sounds, be sure you are pressing the actual ON/OFF button of the camera. Assured of that and if still NOT working, make sure that the BATTERY is installed correctly, in most cameras and other devices the BATTERY will fit in the device in a designed way to make it idiot proof. Assured of that, make sure that you actually have POWER going to the CHARGER. To make sure that you have power at the outlet you have chosen, plug a lamp into it to determine that the outlet is hot. Assured of that, Now plug your charger in. There should be a light of some color on the charger to indicate that it is doing its job. Either correctly put your BATTERY in the charger or connect your camera to the charger. If your charger has an installed indicator light, it should NOW be illuminated. If it IS so, then your charger most likely works. If NOT illuminated, when it should be, most likely it does not work in which case seek another charger. IF the charger appears to BE working but the BATTERY still does NOT charge, then try another BATTERY (a NEW one). If after eliminating all possible problems that can be addressed by you the user and after TRYING all of the above suggestions, the camera STILL does not work, return it and whine and try for a refund or exchange for one that works or remember that; "All things man made are subject to fail and as if by magic, you have found one that proves it".

My L200 samsung camara is frozen and the lens are stuck out

I had the same problem - and wondered if if might be that the battery didn't have enough 'grunt' to close the lense - so I am charging it via the actual charger (rather than through the computer) and sure enough, I turned it on and then off, and the lense closed. The green light comes on when I plug the camera into the computer to download photos, and I thought this was therefore charging the battery, but maybe it doesn't charge it properly. Anyway, my lense is now closed and the battery is still charging (light is still red). Good luck.

CAMARA turns off when i press to take a photo

I have the same camera... and it was doing the same thing AFTER i changed my old batteries, because they were getting low. It was only after i put in the NEW batteries that i had this problem... I tried putting the old batteries back in and sure enough it worked again, so it probably all just depends on the brand of the battery you use.
