Question about Samsung Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Can't get the power on...

A month ago, it was fine and I could take over 50 photos. Now, When I connect the camera for charging the battery - after the red light burning for a short time, it turns green meaning the charging is completed. Then when I switch the power on, the camera status light burns for a few seconds and then, it goes off with beep, beep, beep sound. Same thing keeps happening everytime I switch on the Power.
I have inserted the battery well. I wonder if the battery is getting charged but not holding.

Thanks

I would try a new battery. How old is the battery? Your probably right about the battery not holding a charge.

Might be the camera's battery terminals, not the battery itself. Take a qtip and some isopropyl aclohol and clean the terminals in the battery well of camera.

I don't know where you got your information but, most of it is incorrect. Your camera can use two types of batteries: rechargeable EN-MH1 using the MH-70 battery charger or a non-rechargeable CRV3. The camera cannot be charged with a cord to the camera. Also, new EN-MH1 batteries will discharge quickly for the first few charges and then give good service thereafter.

Camera only takes 5 photos before dying


This new battery, if it is the exact type of battery recommended by the manufacturer then it is most likely not the battery. if you bought a similar battery it might be for even the minimum difference makes all the difference with digital cameras. for camera repair this company does a good job and you can even select your problem on their online quote. www.teleplancamerarepair.com

Lens Error


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Hp r707 wont turn on


Connect the charger. If the camera works while connected to the charger, you need a new battery.

Cannon G7 need help


Hi
Had the same problem a few months ago.There was a high pitchedwhisltle and I think the screen said "lens fault.turn off camera" or something similar.Bought a G9 to replace as the 7 was out of guarantee but sent the 9 back to the e-bay reseller as it was obviously secondhand with grit around the lens ring and the viewfinder.Ebay never again!.So 3 months ago ago I tried the G7 again with a fresh charged battery before I consigned the camera to the loft.I noticed that each time i switched on the whistle and message was there but the lens extended slightly further each timeso I kept rebooting until the lens was fully extended.Turned the camera off and on again and everything was back to normal.It seems that this may be Canons protocol when a camera goes back.Its been absolutely fine until today.It wont boot up at all.I have tried 2 fresh charged batteries and its dead.Any ideas anyone?

Screen works in playback mode but turns off in camera mode as if batteries are going dead.


For some reason, Fuji does not emphasize that if your batteries get low, this is what happens. You just need recharged batteries or new batteries. Be careful with rechargables--before recharging them when this happens, you first have to drain them using the discharge mode of your camera. Then they will take a complete charge. (Good for some 300 charges or so, I believe.) But if you don't discharge them first, they will take less and less of a charge, and last shorter and shorter. If you use regular batteries, they might not last for 50 pics before running out of juice.

Camera won't turn on at all


Make sure the batteries you try are new and not cheap crap, or improperly charged or old recharghables. You can by a card reader that plugs into your USB for $15 - $50 dollars and download the photos then. Or bring your memory card into just about any photo store to have them put it onto a cd for you which you can then copy onto your computer. $5-$10

Camera won't turn ON


First off, everything was not fine until this morning. You had this occur a month ago. Frankly, I would have done exactly as you did a month ago and nothing more. I have seen too many electrical problems permanently solved by turning a device off and then on, or by rebooting. Here is what I would generally recommend: 1. See what the camera manual suggests. 2. Charge the batteries fully before using them. New ones are often not charged up. They could have been in a warehouse for months. 3. The electrical contacts on your camera, the ones that interface with the batteries, may be a little corroded. If you can access them easily, try cleaning them with the eraser on the end of a pencil. Same with the batteries themselves. 4. If exposed to prolonged high humidity, electrical problems may include not only the power supply, but other electrical switches, such as the reset button., which you cannot address on your own. 5. Call Sony.
