Question about Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

9 Answers

Very short battery life I have the same problem, very short battery life. A lot of times, I put new fresh batteries in the Samsung S630 and the battery life indicator on the camera display shows the battery is getting low (one bar left). Is there a recall? Is there a fix? I know the batteries are good. I measure them with a digital volt meter. Help me with this problem please . . .

    The Samsung S630 does not have another tiny battery anywhere. It only has the two AA batteries. I can put new, fresh batteries in and turn it on and it shows full battery charge. I can then turn the camera off, take the batteries out and interchange them, and the camera will say low battery and not turn on. The battery charge sensor changes at will.

    The camera is clean, the contacts are shinny bright, no corrosion. This problem has been happening since the camera was new. My daughter never told me of the problem until now.

There is no recall , and the camera is not faulty.

Digital cameras have a battery absorption that is higher than other device.

Measuring voltage (and even amps) on the battery pole means nothing, you need to take the amps (non voltage) when the battery is connected to a closed circuit and working.

Use alkaline good brand battery (duracell, alkaline energizer etc.), it is like that for the great part of digital camera.

Cameras like codaks have their own special batteries and last longer.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try cleaning the battery contacts inside the camera. You may need to scrape them so as to remove any corrosion. Additionally, they may have to be bended or stretch to enable these contacts to exert more force/pressure to the batteries.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Thers no recall and this can only be fixed by replacing the circuit
you should try to take it back for another one if you have a warranty
otherwise you can try to take it to an electronc repair shop to have them fix it for you

Low battery indication with new batteries


Make sure you are using rechargable batteries. Normal batteries are not strong enough. Try using either rechargable Lithium Ion batteries, or rechargable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. These are much stronger and should give you a good battery life.

Batteries


I had the same problem......I went to the store that i bought the camera from and i bought a kit that contained four rechargable batteries, a battery charger, & it also came with a car cord that goes into your cigarette lighter so you can charge a set in your car. PROBLEM SOLVED for $26.00 + tax.

I take a whole lot of pictures (freelance photographer) and I ALWAYS have one fresh set. As soon as the set in my camera goes low i throw them on the charger and put a fresh set in my camera. By the time the fresh set goes low, the set in the charger is ready.

This is because you have to use disposable batteries designed for digital cameras. Some disposables are designed for different uses. SInce digital cameras use a lot of power you have to use ones that are designed for them which is why it is almost always recommended to use rechargeable batteries for digicams

My samsung wont turn on


It's not the camera. Are your batteries suggested for digital camera use? Have you checked the expiry date? this camera is quite the battery ****- even if your batteries show up as fully charged, a lot of brand's don't have enough power to support this camera, so MAKE sure you buy good batteries.

Help with s630 Digital Camera


Rechargable batteries actually do not recharge the 100 times advertised. After maybe 10 times they are reduced in capacity noticably. For instance, new alkaline batteries will last me maybe 60 pictures, however the rechargables are only good for about 5. To test this try taking out the batteries, and put back in before you wish to try them, also turn off the flash if it is not needed.(flash uses a lot of power)

Batter Life


How can I extend my digital camera’s battery life and save money?

Avoid the three main power drains in a digital camera: power cycling, unnecessary flash, and excessive LCD (liquid-crystal display) use. A camera uses power each time it initializes or shuts down, so avoid cycling the camera on and off between shots; you should only turn the camera off when you finish taking pictures.

Also, because it takes energy to use a flash, turn this component off in daylight or high-light areas. Even if your camera doesn’t fire the flash, it takes energy to keep the flash charged.

In addition, the color LCDs used on digital cameras can demand a lot of power (especially if the camera is left on for a prolonged period), so turn off the LCD and use the optical viewfinder rather than the LCD to frame the snapshot. Plus, make sure you only use the LCD sparingly to review your snapshots.

If you haven’t purchased a camera yet, choose one that uses common (low-cost) alkaline batteries rather than the more expensive lithium cells. Most cameras that operate on AA or AAA batteries also will accept rechargeable batteries, which may cost more initially but can easily pay for themselves in the long run. Of course, always refer to a camera’s manual for specific operating suggestions and precautions.

Kindly regards,
micro

Samsung S630 date gets reset while changing the batteries


It is really NORMAL that the date will be reset to the Manufacturer's date whenever you are changing batteries.

For you not to keep on changing the date and time of your camera, use Rechargeable batteries for a longer battery life span but make sure that you will be setting the battery type of your camera for the Rechargeable ones.

To set the correct battery type.
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see BATTERY TYPE
- Select ALKALINE if you're using NON-RECHARGEABLE
- Select Ni-MH if you're using RECHARGEABLE
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved

Turn off camera after the settings
have been changed to refresh the camera.

Remove battery for a minute and insert it again.

There is a Battery Type setting in the Menu of your camera.

Do the following:
- Press Menu/ Ok button
- Go to Set Up 2
- Scroll down to Battery Type

Two options under Battery Type:
- Alkaline- if you are using non- rechargeable battery
- NiMH- if you are using rechargeable battery
