Question about Samsung Digimax i6 PMP Digital Camera
Hey everyone, i recieved a camera today from a friend for free who works in a electric store, he told me it has problem, the problem is that the camera will switch on *only from the play media button*, but wont switch on via the *power button*, it connects to my computer just fine. So I powered it up via the play button and managed to switch the camera on by pressing the *take photo button* but the cameras shutter wont even open!! so i manually tried moving the shutter with my finger and have seen the camera works but keeps switching off after 2-3 seconds (after i have pressed the take photo button), i have plenty of knowledge and i have tried everything apart from trying to find the same firmware, tried powering it via USB and Charger! Can Anyone Tell Me What Is Rong!!!! PLEASE :)

Congratulations on fixing the problem! However I just wanted to let you and everyone else who reads this solution know that the part which failed on your camera is not actually the shutter. The shutter is deep inside the lens assembly right next to the image sensor. What you were dealing with was simply a protective cover for the lens. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Solution worked flawlessly. 8 little screws removed (4 on the botton on the side - two on each side of the power charger interface assembly; 2 holding the verticle plastic covering on the side of the camera, and two additional screws underdeath the plastic covering just removed) was all that was needed to create enough separation in the unit to free the protective cover for the lense. The protective cover for the lense now opens and closes as it should when power is enabled/disabled. Thanks for the post, really paid off.

It definitely sounds like you have a manufactural problem with your camera. Contact Samsung, and explain the problem to them, and see what they can do. Let me know what help they are able to give you.
