How I fixed my Camera:

> First take your Memory card off, and remove battery
> Now, leave your camera without battery-power
=(wait for while!)

>Then,start your camera WITHOUT Memory-Card.

Note: MiniSD Card with adapter, may crash/freeze camera.
(so use the real "one piece" SD-card, not that Micro-thing!)
***

>When i removed the old SD card, everything was OK.

I hope this can help many others?

Camera not displaying images as seen through viewfinder. The screen is black. Image controls and info can be seen but the picture is just black. Takes photos which are also black; but previous photos...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras, particularly for the SD1000. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.


By the way, my wife's SD1000 also has this problem every once in a while. I easily fix it by using the following steps from the link: powering on the camera, opening and closing the battery door, and flicking the end of the lens barrel with my fingertip (or you can tap it with a pencil as discussed in the link).

My Samsung S860 won't even turn on anymore. I changed the batteries but it is still not doing anything. Is there something I should do?


Same thing just happened to us. The green light comes on and the lens opens up but the screen stays blank and it gets stuck here. My daughter barely used this camera - only has taken about 180-200 pictures since she received it as a gift.

Got a black screen and cant take any pics. Can review pics but cant take them


Is the battery low? It takes more power to take images than to review them.

Or perhaps you have disabled the screen. Try the 'Disp' button.

Black screen


First ensure that this is not a setting problem, by removing batteries to reset camera. try also using the Reset command in the camera menu , after removing batteries.

if you can see old pictures, but new ones come out black, that means that for some reason, no light is coming to the array sensor (the sensor that scans and take the picture), or the signal is not arriving to main board, or the board is faulty.

Check first that the shutter is opening properly, that lens is extending, and that there is no dirt on top of the objective lens.

If that is not a problem, then there is either a defective array sensor, a losen array sensor cable/connector, or the main pcb inside the camera has a fault.
In all cases the camera must be taken apart, inspected, and fixed by a technician.

Power wont stay on


Remove batteru for a minute and insert it again. There is a Battery Type setting in the Menu of your camera.

Do the following:
- Press Menu/ Ok button
- Go to Set Up 2 (icon looks like a wrench with number 2 on it)
- Scroll down to Battery Type

Under Battery Type, there are two options:
- Alkaline- if you are using non- rechargeable battery
- NiMH- if you are using rechargeable battery

It dont turn on


I had the same problem. Try to turn it on, 3 beeps and then it would shut down. Screen would come on for that time. Also, the lens was stuck open. It wouldn't close.

I twisted the lens (gently) and it appeared stuck. A gentle screw motioned seemed to free it. I hit the power button and it come on, but this time no 3 beeps and shut down. I then turned it off and this time the lens retracted and closed.

So, it appears that if the lens gets stuck open, it has a shut down feature that doesn't allow the camera to go further into its operation modes. I believe this stuck open problem occured on our camera when the batteries went low.

Again, a second of gentle twisting seemed to unstick it and with fresh batteries in, it was able to operate and shut down properly.

As far as batteries, I use the rechargeable Ni-Cad 2500 mA. They last a while.

Blessings to you!
