Hello, I have this camera for nearly half a year. I took a picture today in my class, and then turned the camera off. Five minutes later i wanted to view the picture and only the light came on and the LCD screen acted like it tried to come on, and then didn't do anything. I've tried using other batteries, and i even put the batteries in another samsung camera. It worked in that camera. It just keeps getting stuck it seems. I also have to remove the batteries for the camera to turn off. Any help would be appreciated
Not sure if you have the same problem..but i have the same camera and when i turned it on the screen was all white..it still worked and took pictures but i could only see them on the computer.. i had my friends dad open it up and he found a foam like piece that fell from somewhere and was causing a wire to short out in the LCD screen.

This is the classic symptom of a failed CCD sensor. The only fix is to have the sensor replaced, but as the camera is around five years old now any repairs will not be cost effective.
Sorry, but your camera has reached the end of it's useful lifespan: five years is pretty good going for any digital camera, they simply do not last anywhere near as long as the film cameras they replaced.
Your only real choice is to buy a new replacement, but if all you need is a similar technical specification to your current model then there are plenty of cameras for less than £100 which will do at least as good a job as your present camera. Just don't expect a sub £100 camera to last anywhere near five years though.
Sorry I can't be more positive, but I hope that I've still helped you.
The eye flashing is normal when the flash is trying to charge up , if the batteries are healthy the camera won`t take a picture until the flash is charged fully.Try turning the flash off and see if the camera fires, get some higher rated rechargeable batteries (2000mah) or above this may resolve your problem.
The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your
camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
Today I was taking photos and the camera quit...the top display says err. The book says release shutter, but I push the shutter and it does nothing but make a little click and the err stays. I took the lens off, and the camera does look like the shutter is open or something.
