Samsung Digimax 530 - Zoom Error

I purchased a Samsung 530 Digimax about two years ago and it has hardly every been used. I charged the batteries and when trying to use the camera I get a "Zoom Error". The warranty of course is past. The camera will open to the Settings mode but when trying to open it on any of the picture taking modes the error shows up. I saw the post of another camera with the same problem and saw the suggestion that it may be a unconnected wire or motor problem. If there are no suggetions on this I may just get my screw driver out. Any help would be appreciated.

Camera fitted with newly fully charged batteries, switch camera on, red light comes on and immediately goes out, will not power up!

It is a very good possibility that those rechargable batteries have had it.
You probably need new ones.

They are only effective for about two years.

Then you need new ones.
No way around it, they do wear out.

Try NEW rechargeable batteries.

Hello there,........i have a samsung digimax s500cyber530 that i bought appox: 4 years ago?,.....and we just several days ago replaced an 8 year old gateway "windows" computer w/a brand new HP...

Once you get the camera working again by the "shuffling technique", don't connect it to the computer again. Instead, purchase an inexpensive card reader and use it to download pictures from now on. typrice_31.jpg

Camera shows low Battery and goes off even if u insert a new one

are you using NiMh rechargeable batteries?
If yes, check that they are fully charged. If that doesn't do the trick, sounds like it might be a power circuit issue. Samsung is in Secaucus, NJ
or SamsungUSA on the web

Digimax i5 problem charging battery

■ Charging LED 

Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged
Red LED is blinking = Charging error
 Green LED is on = Charging is complete

● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.

If the charging LED doesn't turn to green could mean a signal that the battery is bad or can't charge 100% anymore = too old, needs a new battery. Hope this helps.

My cameras got an outty !!

Has it had a bump lately? Most times this is caused by the camera being kept in the glovebox or similar. The drive gears for the lens are very fine and delicate. They are not easy to pull apart either.
