Question about Samsung Digimax D53 Digital Camera

Shutter wont open

When I hit the power button at the top of the camera the light comes on but quickly goes off when you let up on the button. The shutter on the front of the camera doesnt come out or open or anything. Any suggestions or should I just buy a new camera?

Thanks,
Shaun Farmer

Try to replace the battery with rechargeable ones and if it doesn't work, you may contact Samsung Customer Service 1-800-SAMSUNG and set up your camera for repair.

When I click the button to take a picture the screen goes blank and doesn't come back on. Power light is still on.


Your shutter is stuck open. Remove the lens. Set to fireworks mode. May need to be in a dark room. When you press the shutter button tap the camera with an object that won't damage it. I used a rubber coated knife handle. Pull the battery and repeat. Tapping all around the camera. Hopefully it will break free. Then do some continuous shooting to loosen it up.

Overexposed photos??


The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes to the viewfinder and you can compose the picture. When you press the shutter release, the mirror comes up, and light goes to the sensor. In a film SLR, there was a shutter just in front of the film that controlled the amount of light that hit the film. In your D80, it's a combination of the mirror and the electronics that set "shutter speed".

What is happening when you get these white pictures is that somehow your settings are holding the mirror open far longer than it should be open. When you turn off the camera, it drops the mirror automatically. If you are in S or M, it's because you've set your shutter speed improperly. If it's doing this in Auto mode, then there may be a problem with the exposure meter or the lens.

If you describe more about when it happens (shutter speed settings, Auto or manual mode) I can probably tell you if it's your settings or the camera/lens.

Camera turns on only somtimes, shuts off after 1 picture captured


There are damaged components in the camera's circuitry. You may find the camera too expensive to service. I would think its time to buy a new camera. Generally water does a lot of damage!

You could send the camera out for an estimate. I have my doubts it will be worth to service.

Camera goes to sleep too quickly...is there a way to adjust?


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation after 3 minutes when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover is open and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode. Operate the zoom button or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left on for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

No power to winder


Sounds like your batteries are near dead, enough juice to run the light and shutter control but not enough for the motor drive (which the control system knows it must use when film is loaded). The MB-21 lights not coming on is the battery test -- two lights means batteries OK, 1 light means low battery, no lights means exhausted.

Remove the lens from camera.
Look inside pass the mirror, how is the shutter?
Should be flat with the film with no warp or opened shutters.

Or try this:

Lens out, set camera to M (manual mode).
Shutter set at 1 (One Second).
No flash.
800 ISO
Lnes drive pin (recessed) fully into the body, not S or C.
Fresh batteries.
Set self timer on.
Press shutter button.
Camera should blink and then shutter should be tripped.

This will also check to see if you have enough power for min. of one shot.

Samsung S500 beeps and turns off when i hit shutter


Hi,
If the Olympus is using the exact same batteries as the Canon, there is a high chance that the problem is with the batteries.

AE-1Problems... Advance lever, Shutter, and more.


This happened to me to both the Canon's I had. I found out it was a dead battery. Once I replaced those it worked fine. The battery is hidden under the hand grip which can be taken off using a coin in the screw slot.

Sincerely,
Karin

Shutter wont fire, or auto focus


This sounds like mirror box motor problem ( see enclosed shot from our workshop ) : this cocks the shutter and controls mirror mechanism and when the drive dosnt work properly ( small nylon gear on the motor goes ) camera will develop the the sort of problems you describe.
Can be repaired but will cost $ 150-200 so it is relatively expensive repair.
