Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camera is no switching on.

Whilst I was taking pics, my camera died. I thought it was the batteries and so proceeded to re-charge them. But it's not the batteries. The camera still doesn't come on and the lens is permanently out.

Could you please assist me.

Kind regards,
Salochini

    When you hit the on button screen lights up with Samsung logo then beeps 3 times and shuts off. Tried 3 sets of batteries...this is not the issue.

Try taking the batteries out, blow in the connection hole then reinstall the batteries. Otherwise, maybe the batteries are worn out. Duracell is just one online company that sellx camera batteries, that I've used.

Replaced battery since it wasn't holding a charge. Has been plugged in for 24 hrs, still won't power on when unplugged from wall charger. What course of action should I attempt?


Possibly the charger itself is bad and only operating as a electrical connection/power cord for your camera. Try borrowing or buying another charger or take the camera to a local camera repair center or Best Buy, etc or contact customer service for your camera's manufacturer.
Hope this helps. Mike

My camera won't switch on. I thought it needed charging but the light on the charger unit only goes from solid red to flashing red. Whilst in the charging unit, I can view the pictures on the card and it...


The batteries when too dead won't charge, it is a known problem, some take a 9V battery and hook up to the battery, separated from the camera and charger, pos to pos neg to neg for a few seconds than try on the charger again, I've done this to a few of these Exilims with good success

Camera drains battery while off


Assuming you're fully closing the front slider cover, the power switch is activated by the front slider cover so it may not be activating the switch or sensing that the cover fully closed. Sounds like it needs a professional service.

Have you tried resetting your camera? To reset your camera, open the battery cover and you should see a small hole inbetween the SD card slot and the battery release switch. Then use a small narrow object (i.e. mechanical pencil with its lead extended) and press into the hole. You should feel it "click" and then hold it for about 3 seconds. Try restarting your camera.

Note: Please backup all the data on your SD card before doing this.

Hope this helps

My cam won't turn on!!!


sounds similar to my problem - after several times of occuring & working again apparently by chance I now think problem is caused by taking out main battery whilst camera switched on causing a software problem - try taking out both batteries for a long time (I did an hour) so camera forgets all it knows including date etc & reverts to factory settings. Make sure main battery is charged & replace both batteries - I did this & camera now seems fine - though haven't tried to recreate fault !

Kodak easy share z612 will not turn on to take a picture


When the battery dies, usually the camera will retract the lens if possible. If the battery is so dead the lens can not retract, I would recommend trying to charge or change the battery. Or try to turn the camera on, and then manually shutting it off if you can.

The black spot i suspect was the CCD or processor failing. Checkout Nikon customer support re this.
