Question about Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Wont stay on

ARmed with all kinds of error numbers, I went to the Samsung site ready for an easy fix. But guess what? Searching by model number gave no results. Neither did searching by category. I guess my S630 is a stealth model they are hiding. Bought this for my son's birthday. The Duracell batteries that came with it lasted for about 20 photos, then were dead. Bought new Energizer rechargable yesterday, charged them, and put them in. Now, when I turn on the camera, it displays 1239 on the lcd, beeps three times, and then shuts off. If I take out the memory card, it displays 8 on the lcd beeps three times and shuts off. I tried the batteries in my remote and they are fine. Any suggestions besides taking it back and getting a different brand? Thanks, Bill

Re: Wont stay on

You probably don't have the batteries fully charged up. Also you will need to change battery type from alkaline to metal hydride in the "wrench2"(the last icon on the menu) menu. You did get metal hydride rechargeable batteries??? If you got nickel-cadmium rechargeables that might also be your problem with your camera as they don't have enough power.

I need to replace the lens of w-180.what is I number of part?

I'm guessing that you're experiencing an "access error" (on Sony's) or a "lens error" (on Canon's and others). Unfortunately the replacement part runs about $30 on ebay (here's one example, just search there for: sony w180 lens), and runs close to the value of your camera (going rate for a used w180 is about $40). If you purchased such a lens, there's no guarantee that you'd be able to fix your camera, as it really is not easy to access the lens.
You might want to instead consider that fix techniques have been developed for lens/access errors that do not involve opening up the camera. See this link. Give these fixes repeated tries. But if unsuccessful, consider purchasing one of those used w180's, or better yet, a brand new model camera.

System error on coolpix775

If you are talking about the camera having a system problem... what does that mean? What happens?
When does it happen?
I have had a number of these very cameras and fixed a few in the past. They are great cameras to take pics with.
The problem can be a number of problems caused as a result of things which occured. There could have been some kind of impact, dropping it, water exposure, any of which can lead to this sytem error, and then will need internal repairs.
If you can get to the menu, reset it to default on all. See if that changes it, if not better to sell it on a site such as Ebay as parts, as is, or a fixer. The reason is that if the system error continues, this will take camera repair of the kind to dismantle the camera to find the problem.

How do you fix 'lens error restart camera' I put it in my bookbag. I guess i threw my bookbag around and now i have this "lens error, restart camera." The lens froze halfway and it's staying that way....

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

Samsung digimax D103 10 million pixel camera

This product has a 2 year warranty, unfortunately I lost the original till receipt, but managed to get the transaction details from PC World (I bought it in Dec 2006). The Samsung telephone number for the UK is 00800 12263727 - I have now sent it off to them for repair (recorded delivery) to the service centre at Samsung Opto-Electronics UK Ltd, Samsung House, 1000 Hillswood Drive, Hillswood Business Park, Chertsey, KT16 0PS - On talking to their service team, when the camera "Beeps" 3 times and turns off it is faulty, and will need to be repaired - So no easy fix - It's over to you now!!

Digimax samsung s500 beeps 3 times lens stuck wont stay on

Mine got stuck with lens out. The batteries were new so I never imagined it could be the batteries, but they were cheap ones so I recharged a pair of good ones and once I put tried them on it worked just fine again. Conclusion, the "new" cheap batteries had only enough energy to turn it on and then they couldn't give it enough energy to make it work anymore and that's why I couldn't retract the lens or even turn it off properly. So in your case, try using a couple of good and new batteries.
