Question about Samsung Digimax A7 Digital Camera

Samsung Digimax A7

Hi, my camera had a low battery when i turned it on, as it was turning off i opened the battery compartment but too early so it didnt shut down properly. i have loaded new batteries into the camera and turned it on and you get a black screen and the three beeps telling you the battery is low and it switches off. the lens is also stuck open. i have plugged the camera into the computer via the usb cable but with no results and also tried the old batteries, different batteries again, rechargable batteries. i have changed which setting it opened with using the toggle wheel on the top of the camera but still nothing. if anyone knows of a solution i would be very grateful

Hey, I had the EXACT same problem and was just about to send it to samsung. I took the batteries out the night before, came home from school in the evening and decided to give the camera another go and it just turned on. That was it fixed. I think it resets itself or something. It may or may not work but it's worth a try!

Hey Kate20 I've got the exact same problem with the camera, firstly it was the screen I believe because of the excessive heat we'got. It was turning blurry intermittently. But I managed to open the cam & fix the screen myself with little tweaks. Now that the screen is ok, the power problem. As I switch on it gives low battery maybe sometime rarely it let's you see the background & turns off again. What have you done with yours please? mine is a year old only. it's from UK. funky2nite2003@yahoo.com Thanks & Regards, Ian

What does the red light on the battery charger mean?


Usually, it means that the battery is low on charge. Once the battery reaches a suitable charge, the light should turn green.

Camera always says low battery even when you put in fresh batteries..will not allow me to take any pictures


Hello. Remove the batteries and use the eraser on the end of a common pencil to clean the contacts. Then replace the batteries and turn it on. J.

Digimax a7 battery problem


I had the same problem, apparently if you're using a external memory card that can cause this problem...

I didn't know that but I contacted Samsung and got mine repaired.

They put a note in saying the power board was faulty in the camera.


Much, much better now can take pictures like I used to be able to!

What type of battery are you using.
What does the manual tell you to use?
Plain alkali are not good.
They should be Ni Mah or Li-on

Contact the Samsung Technical support for a repair opinion Then look up your local Internet for a repair firm Bear in mind the likely cost will be heavy. It may be a case of you paying a lot of money for shipping/insurance/Inspection/only to find it cannot be repaired because of lack of parts.
