Question about Samsung Digimax S800 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Jammed shutter & unable to focus

I got a samsung digimax s800 as a gift for xmas and has been superb up until last night (22/05/07). I turned on the camera and noticed that the shutter couldn't open properly on its own. I gently touched it with my finger nail and it opened and closed fine there after. Ever since tho, the camera just cannot focus on anything. Everytime I turn the camera on to take a snap, the image is VERY blurred and nothing I try with the settings makes any difference. Does anyone have any suggestions, or come accross this problem before?

Make sure first of all that you have the correct setting- is it in Macro for example, therfie in close focus mode. Or in a 'lowlight/night shot' mode - so that you get long exposures. Failing all that, as it is fairly new you are covered under warranty and you should go that route.

I am unable to take photos with my samsung digimax s800 camera as the message 'CARD LOCKED' keeps coming up on screen. I have deleted loads of photos so the memory card is definitely not full. Any ideas?


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Camera turns off when shutter button is pressed.


[source]Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera[/source]
Try replacing batteries (high Ah photographic type).
The lens motor & electronics may be draining power if Ah capacity has dropped too low. At night, it could be that your flash is trying to fire (another drain), or shutter timer / mirror staying open longer.
