Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera. Worst performers of all are those "Heavy Duty" batteries. Some may also have reached their shelf life, and though brand new, right out of the package, may even have problems just powering startup of the camera.

Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation.

Keep in mind rechargeable NiMH batteries will save you money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah. Avoid NiMH batteries like the plague that do not list the power rating on the package or batteries. These are generally very inferior, low power rated rechargeable batteries.

I have a samsung 860 digital camera ang my problem is the lens... the lens is still retracted even its turned off... before it happened the camera have a low battery.. and when i charged the battery for...


This may be similar to another solution posted. Try heavy duty batteries - I used ACDelco Super Alkaline, but any brand of "heavy duty" AA should work. Make sure battereis are not cold; low temp causes any battery to lose power. If fresh heavy duty batteries do not help, it may need professional service. (DO NOT try to force the lens back to retracted position - something WILL break.)

Samsung S860 won't power on. light blinks green, will not start


I had a similar problem with this camera. although its likely you have damaged the camera (seek repair from authorised Samsung dealer. should have a 1 year warranty - although you may not be able to claim accidental damage) there is always a chance the batteries are stuffed. i spent hours trying to find out what was physically damaged before realising the AA batteries did not have enough CURRENT to support the camera. gave same symptoms. some new extra heavy duty batteries did the trick.

I don't know how to turn it on, insert the card properly, use the DV disc that came with the product all basic insturctions!


The battery has to be charged for a couple of hours, first.

If you camera uses AA batteries, use new alkaline batteries (not Li-Ion or "Heavy Duty").... be certain of the correct polarity when inserting batteries into camera.

What kind of camera is it? brand & model, please ...

Try new Alkyline batteries again ... (not heavy duty ones).
Make sure the batteries are inserted in the correct polarity... I'm sure it's the batteries.

The most likely problem is the batteries. You don't mention which ones you have - if they're rechargeable, charge for 10 - 15 hours even if the charger indicates a full charge. If those rechargeables are a couple of years old - replace them. If using non-rechargeable, be sure they're NOT "heavy duty" or "super heavy duty" - those are useless, for toys. Get fresh alkaline batteries.

Never use Heavy duty batteries they do not have high output. They are for clocks. and they're cheap. Clean the contacts with a pencil eraser too.
