Whit screen means A. connector has come adrift from the main board. or B. Component failure on the main board. If A. try to restore by gently tapping and squeezing the casing around the base of the screen this may get it back. Do get on to the Samsung Tech Support team - in case this is a known issue. An out of warranty repair is not a likely scenario however.

How to download pictures for Samsung Digimax S500 for Windows 7

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

Can not download photos from digimax S500 lost disk is there an other way to get a result??? Help

Many people find it more convenient to just take the memory card out of the camera and put it in a card reader, especially now that these readers are built into computers and printers. You can't get the pics from the camera's internal memory that way though.

My samsung digimax s500 seems to be stuck on. I can't turn it off. If I open the battery door will I lose the pictures on the SD card?

No . The pictures that are stored on the SD card can be downloaded on to the PC as the images are stored on to the card and will not be deleted unless you do with the camera menu or the PC.
Once the SD card is taken out remove the battery and tryt o tap lightly on the camera with the hood down. It might release any jamming . repeat with the battery put in , with the power ON.
If not contact Samsung service.

first try to do the ff:
