Camera Samsung L77 won't stay on anymore

Hi everybody,

I've got a samsung L77 and since a few weeks I'm having some problems with it. It started when I plugged it into my computer to get some pic's of it. Since then everytime i turn it on it shuts down immediately and the shutter stays open. Though I can always look back at my pic's aty any time. Anybody got a solution?

Thanks, Nicole

    I was a little sceptic, but I thought, what the heck? AND IT WORKED? Thank you so much! You solution came just in time because I just wrote a letter for my travel insurance yesterday!!



    Unbelievable... I've been carrying my camera with me on my 5 months travelling, while it wasn't working. Who would have thought that all I had to do was use some agression ;)

This is not an elegant solution, but it seems to be working. (I might have read some one else mentioning it for another brand of Samsung camera). I hit the end of the camera where the attachment to the computer gets plugged in against the palm of my hand pretty hard about 6 times. Then I tried it and it worked! There is some logic there since it started having the problem right after I put it down on a soft surface from about three feet.(Ididn't really drop it, but tossed it there - gently, I thought - because my hands were full and I was starting to lose everything). In the future I will treat the camera a little more gently knowing that mechanism is somewhat easily knocked out of adjustment.

I accidentally dropped my samsung S1070 while I was taking a photo, and the lens is now stuck out. It won't turn on, and we've tried replacing the batteries and taking them out. I've also tried...


Hi,

Check whether your batteries are actually making contact with the battery posts, and that these posts are clean. If not, bend the posts up/down a little, and maybe clean them with a little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip.The next thing to try is examine both the battery and flash card door. There's usually a little switch on both doors (note some SD card doors do not have this switch) that activates when the doors are closed. If they don't, the camera won't start to prevent damage to the flash card or camera startup sequence. For most cameras its usually a little piece of plastic on the door that pushes in on a pin switch when the door is closed. Closely examine both doors to try to identify these switches. A lot of times that little plastic nib wears down or breaks off, but can easily be jury rigged with a small glued-on replacement.
If you've tried all of the above and still no luck, the problem is then likely to be internal to the camera. One example would be that if your camera uses Compact Flash, check to make sure all pins are present and aligned in the card slot (if bent, simply unbend/straighten them with a skinny "jewelers" screwdriver, then insert the flash card for final realignment).


Thank you!

Your camera is obviously defective. It may have been a return and resold to you. In any case, you should return it immediately....this problem will only get worse.

My camera wont stay on it bleeps once then turns off


That sounds like your battery could be dead/not hold a charge. If you've charged your battery already and your camera still won't stay off and turns off right away, it's time to purchase a new battery for your Samsung TL105.

You can purchase replacement batteries quite cheap here:

Problems to find a proper USB-cable


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

cameras : My Camera Freezes When I Turn It On Or Take A Picture

P, td, li {font-family: arial, u; font-size:9pt; margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px; word-spacing:1px;} If you camera freezes when you power it on or when you try to take a picture, you may have a defective memory card. To test your camera and the memory card, follow these steps:
  1. Power off your camera.
  2. Remove the battery from your camera. If you have a memory card inside the camera, remove that as well.
  3. Clean out any dust or debris inside the battery compartment, and then re-insert the battery into your camera.
  4. Power your camera on without the memory card installed.
  5. Take a picture.
    • If your camera takes a picture, re-install the memory card, and then go to Step 6.
    • If it does not take a picture, your camera requires service. To set up service, click the Create Online Service Request button below.
  1. Format the memory card in the camera, and then take another picture.
  2. Important: Formatting erases all pictures and other data from the card. If you have pictures on the memory card you want to keep, download those pictures to your computer before you format the memory card.
    • If your camera does not take a picture with the formatted memory card installed, replace the memory card.
    • If the issue still persists after you’ve installed a new memory card, your camera requires service. To set up service, click the Create Online Service Request button below
