Digimax A503 will not turn on

Hello, I have had this camera since Christmas 2006 (5 months) and yesterday wanted to take some pictures but the camera would not turn on. I changed the batteries and all that happens is the green LED light comes on for about a second and then goes back off. I have tried this several times and do not know what else to do. Any ideas????? Thanks, DY

    Exact same problem. Bought it a year ago and now it will not turn on at all no matter what batteries I put in it. I have no reciept so taking it back to K Mart is not an option.

    The same problem happened to my camera. I was using rechargable batteries for a majority of the camera's life, and then the other day when I changed to batteries to regular alkelines, the camera wont do anything more than turn on it's green light. Is there a solution?

I need help with my samsung digimax a503 i have brand new alkiline batteries in...

Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

Hello there Jose! Take your camera to a Walmart or camera store and ask for a rechargeable battery and charger for your camera.. It will cost a few dollars now but you will be able to recharge the new battery many, many times for a couple of pennies.
