This is a problem with the tape transport mechanism, and unfortunately, the tape mech has to usually be changed out, as stated in the following web blog:
http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/8691/209090.html
I'm thinking it's due to wear on various parts, which makes an easy repair impossible.
Wish I had better news, but you can shoot for one on ebay with a broken LCD, etc., and maybe get it working yourself.

The condition you described is usually a problem with power to the circuit board in Samsung cameras. I know you mentioned the battery but try the following:
1. Ensure battery is good
2. Remove the battery from the camera.
3. Let the camera sit with the battery removed
for approximately 60 minutes.
4. Clean your battery contacts on the battery and in the camera with a clean cloth, or Q-tip dampened with alcohol or contact cleaner.
5. Reinstall the battery and try to power on the camera. If your camera still doesn't work it will need to go in for service.

I am trying to find a SD card that will work in my Samsung Digital-cam Model: SCD 103. A regular SD card will not fit in the slot on my camera. The manuel just calls for a SD card. I need more details.


The SC-D103 doesn't take SD cards. It takes Sony Memory Sticks and compatibles from third-party manufacturers such as Lexar and Sandisk. Be careful, it will not take Memory Stick PROs.

NO DISPLAY ON LCD IN CAMERA MODE


i have this same problem for a while and just stumbled on the (yet to be verified) solution. www.samsungclassaction.com. if this settlement is legitimate then Samsung will repair for free! (and refunds for people who paid Samsung to repair). the site asks for contact info but i worry about scams so i'm going to contact Samsung directly.

i hope this is real!

The affected models include:
SCD 23, SCD 27, SCD 103, SCD 107

I own the same camera, I have had the same problem on and off for years. Here is what the solution is: ON THE TOP OF THE CAMERA THERE ARE A COUPLE OF BUTTONS WHERE THE PLAYBACK IS AND REWIND ETC... YOU WILL ALSO SEE SEE A BUTTON " BLC / MULTI DISP. wHEN YOUR VIEWER IS BLACK PRESS AND HOLD THAT DOWN AND YOUR PICTURE WILL COME BACK UP. I don't know what this feature is for maybe a lousy fade control, but this will bring your picture back in to the viewfinder. Good Luck...
