Question about Samsung Digimax S730 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My photos just show up white when I take pictures with my S730

I have the samsung S730 and lately, whenever I tried taking photos where there's light, say I try to take pictures on a sunny day, the picture just show's up all white. But when I snap a few shots inside the house, the pictures show up fine. Before this, to me, it was a wonderful camera but now this has happened. Why is this and how can I fix it?

    Yes I have tried reformatting it.. like loads of times... What would happen if I changed the memory card? Cuz I was transfering my pictures to my PC and there was this unknown file in it called autorun.exe or something like that... I had a feeling it was a virus... so what should i do?? and thanks adi0sk88!!!

Have you tried reformatting it? That's fixed some problems with mine, you could try that and see if it works

    No, that shouldn't be a virus it's just for the camera. Before you change the card, try taking the card out of the camera and then try taking some pictures to see if it just might be the card corrupting the camera.

WhY photos canon A470? i have a canon powershot A470 camera and there's a problem taking photo.. whenever i take a picture, it's either fully white or have white stripes on the pictures.. i thought it


Perhaps you check the settings. If the camera is on nightshot, or manual, with a long shutter time or wilde open diafragma your pictures are all overblown, or stripes come from lights. Put the camera in automatic. The main dial on the green camera logo, and try again. If this does not work, Please let me know how the settings are on your camera. Success

Samsung S730 camera wont take photos with flash


�� When the menu is displayed on the LCD monitor,
pressing the LEFT button makes the cursor shift to

MY camera won't take outdoor photo's


Sorry, it sounds like your shutter is jammed open, giving very overexpsoed photos. You could try menu / reset but i doubt it will help :(

Pictures are over exposed when outside


You may have the settings wrong. Check in the MENU to see if you have it set to "inside" pics rather than outside.
Also the ISO has a lot to do with the exposure. If the iso is set too low outside sunlight pics will be white or overexposed. Try setting ISO on wheel for various options select program mode button and MENU select ISO 120 or 250. These are are pretty general settings. the flash will only engage inside or outside if the light is low ( like evening) I suspect your ISO setting is at a setting that is incompatible with bright sunlight
t
Also select White Balance and move it to DAYLIGHT

take a few shots inside and out to see if there is an improvement.

Screen and photos turn dark when zoom is used


Take a look at the manual - sounds like you have accidentally changed the white balance setting - you will want to set it back.

No software to upload photo's... Help?


Go to Samsungs websight, software should be available for download there, if not, any run of the mill picture software will allow you to upload the images to you're computer, the main thing is to make sure the drivers are in you're computer for that particular camera, if you can't find samsungs websight try googling it, here I found the site you need this will take you directly to you're cameras support page, with all the software and drivers you will need.http://www.samsung.com/us/support/search/supportSearchResultView.do?group=&group_cd=&type=&type_cd=&subtype=&subtype_cd=&model_nm=+S730&dType=D&mType=&model_cd=&menu=download&prd_ia_cd=&disp_nm=+S730&isEqualsY=

be sure all of this is in you're browsers address line. and it will take you directly to the site....
