Re: samsung s630

Hi all!
i got the same problem... but in my case samsung service cost was almost the same as the cost for a new camera!! :(
so i had nothing to lose and i did try to fix it by myself.....
i opened the camera,got really deep and found that what was causing that problem was a small hair stuck into the spur gears that open the lens.... it had some dust too... i cleaned it and works perfect....
id you dare to do it you really have to be very careful or youll really break your camera, i can post some photographs about how to do it and what screws to remove...

See ya!

Re: samsung s630

Hi Everyone, I fixed my problem by sending the camera to a designated camera repair shop. They fixed my camera without erasing the pictures4.gif that I had saved on there. What savy_7 says is true, however if your problem is a lens problem no type of batteries will make the camera work. Go through the online repair process (go to the library or internet1.gif cafe if you have to), if you are within your warrenty period then the repair is free you just have to pay for postage one way. Hope this helps. God Bless. Have a Marvelous New Year with lots of pictures. the camera is a good camera when it works. Don't call customer service GO ONLINE THAT'S HOW IT WORKS. You will not get a return phone call.

Re: samsung s630

I was having the same problem with my Samsunbg s630 - my daughter researched and discovered that one needs to use 2500mAH or higher rechargeable batteries to make the camera work properly (I bought the 2650 mAH rechargeables). We immediately bought this type of battery and now my camera is working just fine! Hope all of you have the same good fortune when you try this batterty,

Dear Sir,
1.Please put your camera in manual mode or program mode after this select the flash option and then select fill in mode.
2.After this press the shutter button and hold it this will energize the flash and help to take the photo.
3.If these steps do not work then you will have to change the batteries.

Samsung S630 camera says "low battery" then shuts off

This camera needs rechargeable batteries usually lasts about a week with much use. I thought what a waste of batteries then tried these rechargable and the situation hasn't occured . it is probably because it is small digtal camera which uses alot of power.

S630 lens out and wont turn on

Cameras belonging to the S Series really do have a battery type option that needs to be set up first for proper power connection.

Recommended batteries are just:
- Alkaline (Non-rechargeable)
- Nickel-metal Hydride (Rechargeable)

Just the proper battery type by:

- Pressing MENU/OK button
- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Keep on scrolling down and look for battery type
- Press the right button to pick up on 2 options
like Alkaline and Ni-MH
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Keep pressing MENU/OK to get out of the MENU

Once, it's done, camera needs to be turned off for a few seconds
so that settings made will be refreshed with the camera.

As you turn camera on, you're now ready to take many pictures.

ALKALINE (Non-rechargeable) batteries when set to the correct battery type will really take a maximum of 100 pictures.

For the Rechargeable batteries (Ni-MH), when those are fully charged, and the battery type is set to Ni-MH, it will be taking more than a hundred of course.

I hope this help you a lot.

Samsung S630 date gets reset while changing the batteries

It is really NORMAL that the date will be reset to the Manufacturer's date whenever you are changing batteries.

For you not to keep on changing the date and time of your camera, use Rechargeable batteries for a longer battery life span but make sure that you will be setting the battery type of your camera for the Rechargeable ones.

To set the correct battery type.
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see BATTERY TYPE
- Select ALKALINE if you're using NON-RECHARGEABLE
- Select Ni-MH if you're using RECHARGEABLE
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved

Turn off camera after the settings
have been changed to refresh the camera.
