Samsung S860 Camera Does Not Turn On

My digital camera, a Samsung S860, does not turn on. Replacing the batteries does not seem to work. When I press either the Power or Review button, the green light blinks but then the camera does not turn on. When I hold the power button the light blinks repeatedly (same for the Review button). I have tried holding the battery cover, switching the batteries, checking for debris in the battery case, and changing to new batteries altogether, but nothing seems to work.
Thanks for your assistance.

SOURCE: camera wont turn beep sounds and green light glows when pressing power button

Does the lens extend in either of these cases? If there has been some malfunction in the lens and it fails to extend the situation can cause the camera to power-off in order to protect itself. Some cameras show error messages before powering off, others do not. Hold the camera up to your ear and turn the power on. Is there a series of mechanical sounds before the beeps? Hearing sounds but not seeing the lens extend indicates some sort of failure in the lens assembly. If you hear nothing then the problem most likely lies elsewhere, possibly a failed electronic component or something as simple as a loose connection. Check with your manufacturer for any recalls or technical bulletins, and see if they will service your camera under warranty. If not there are a number of repair facilitys available on the internet who generally have better rates than out-of-warranty service at the factory. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

SOURCE: camera wont turn on

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?

SOURCE: Wont turn on, new batteries, green light just blinks.

Make sure you are using the correct batteries, and that they are installed correctly. Some cameras require more powerful kinds of batteries and will not work with the cheaper kinds.
A blinking light can mean something is wrong with the power, not enough or something else.
If you have a power adapter or can get one, you may try that, to see if the camera will work without batteries. If it does, then some problem exists in the battery circuit.

Same problem. Tried changing batteries, but no luck. However, after reading that someone else had solved the problem by using "extra heavy duty" batteries, I got some ACDelco Super Alkaline batteries, and the camera came alive! :-)
