Question about Samsung Digimax S730 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Battery dies quickly

Camera seems to go through batteries like nothing I have ever seen.

New Alkaline's took about 25 pics.
Just put in some rechargables and after 5 ics with flash the battery is showing down one mark of 3.
Any experience of this? Is Samsung known for doing this?

Which AA battery shall I buy for my digital camera? 1500? 1000? 2500?


Although you could use these, do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in electronic devices.
These batteries are only to be used in flash lights. The lower capacities suggest NiCd batterie. Also don't use these.
A set of new NiMH batteries, from 2000 to 2600 mAh with a good charger, will be fine.
Two things.
There are very fast chargers around. Don't invest in them. I payed 80 euro for a quick charger. Could charge 2700 mAh batteries in 15 minutes. The charger killed all my NiMH batteries I had (more than 40) It took me till the fifth or so died, before I realised it could be the charger. Since I stopped all my batteries one by one died and I had to replace them all
I now have some "fast" chargers that take 2 to 3 hours and the new batteries Can handle that.
Better buy a slower charger and some good batteries, than the other way around.
Second. Test the 2600 mAh batteries, if they fit.
To put more capacity in the "same" AA battery some brands made them slightly thicker. So it could be you can't get the largest ones in your camera.

Why are the batteries dying so quickly in my Kodak 12MP?


It depends, if you are using regular Alkaline batteries, those are known to go dead really fast. Better if you try some rechargeable batteries with a rating of at least 2100mAh, anything smaller than that will drain just as quick as Alkalines.

Still, power, or better said, the lack of correct power supply is the cause of most problems in electronic apparatus.
Please also check the contacts in the battery holder. If there is any corrosion, the voltage that is left for the camera can be just to low to work correct. And also new batteries can be worn out before you put them in the camera. Always check the date on the batteries.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries. They don't have enough power to let a modern camera work. Even the expansive alkaline batteries, only have enough power to let you take perhaps 100 pictures. The best choose is Li-Ion or NiMH rechargeable batteries.
New rechargeable batteries, can only deliver "Full" power after a few charge / discharge cycles.

I received this camera a few years ago as a gift. I used the batteries that came with the camera but when they died I put in new alkaline batteries and ever since the camera has been stuck with a message...


you might have cooked it..... fresh alkaline batteries carry a voltage of about 1.7v.
try turning it on/off multiple times to see if it will clear the fault.

A850 will not turn on


I had the same problem with mine, and it's the same camera. I took out the memory card and reinstalled the batteries that came with it. I've only had mine for a few days. And it turned on. I took a pic and turned it off, reinstalled the memory card and made sure it was formatted. Turned it back on and it worked.. took another pic and turned it off, took out the batteries. The batteries that came with my camera are Panasonic Alkaline for Digital. They are a heavier battery than the cheaper ones. So I would suggest using these batteries or make sure the batteries are for digital purposes.. hope this helps.

Put brand new batteries in camera took three pic then they die


Hi, you will only solve this by buying the official KODAK battery (KLIC-8000) - NZD52.00 retail here in New Zealand. Even the generic CR3V rechargeable batteries dont work, so dont waste your $$ on them.
Even now, with the 'official' battery, when taking flash photos or zooming a lot, I find that it is only taking around 150 - 200 shots, when Kodak boast over 400.
But I must say the capabilities of the camera (esp the quality video) outstrip any annoyance battery wise.
Hope this helps, regards Wayne

Kodak Z812 shuts off automatically


It is a high-powered camera, also knows as a GREAT camera. Use CRV-3 lithium duracell batteries. I have the same camera and the same "problem", but when I use that battery it lasts forever.

When you say you've tried every different kind of battery, did that include Lithium batts?

Lithiums are the only battery that ALL Kodak cameras seem to be happy to run on.

They have huge problems with alkaline batts, even brand new ones.

Hope this helps.
