Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera

Samsung S 730

I just bought my camera the other day. The batteries that came with it worked fine for a little while and then it said Low Battery after a few uses. With all of the batteries I have tried, the camera now beeps 3 times and the green light goes off. How can I fix this?

The only good idea is to use rechargable batteries. Digital cameras go through batteries like crazy so the only thing that works for me is getting rechargable batteries that you can charge when they get low. I got them and they work great.

Just purchased lithium batteries and indicator showing low battery


Are you sure you bought lithium cells? In your camera you should use Ni-MH batteries. The SNB-2512 could be very expensive, but normal Ni-MH from any brand should work fine.

Depending of what you use, always be sure all batteries are the same, charged and suited for your camera. Most of the time even new Ni-CD rechargeable batteries won't work, because the voltage is low, according to NiMH or alkaline batteries.
Always charge NiMH batteries before using them for the first time, or if they have not been used for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera.

What power of rechargeable battery need in samsung digital camera model no.-S 730


The S730 uses standard AA batteries. Rechargeables tend to be about 1.2V, disposable alkalines and lithiums generally are about 1.5V. Either type will work fine in the S730.

Fujifilm battery fully charged but camera says no charge or very little. Just bought a new Duracell Battery and Charger for my Fuji FinePix J10 Camera. Used the charge on the battery in the camera from...


Well you mentioned that it worked fine yesterday with the battery out of the box. That should tell you that the camera and the battery are both fine. The issue is likely the charger itself. Try recharging it again, and double check that you inserted the batteries correctly, and that any switches (such as for 2 or 4 battery charge) are set in the correct position on the charger. If this doesn't work, take the charger back to the store for exchange/refund as defective.

Why does my tomtom go 730 not function when it is cold and how long should the battery work for


To my experience, battery capacity and life is very poor for the GO 730.
If brand new, the battery can last up to three hours but this degrades quickly. If its cold, the electrochemical process in the battery is slower, adding to the problem.
Also, switching off the TomTom does not really switch off, it goes to standby, still using a little power continuously. After a day or two this completely drains the charge.
I have my GO 730 since mid 2008 and battery is down to ten minutes of use after a full charge. In my car I use the provided car DC adapter, so I do not mind the bad battery too much.

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.

Low battery warning


What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

Olympus Stylus 730 Digital - Won't work 60 days old


I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .

Battery Low with NiMH (won't turn on) OK with Alkaline


Not the camera obviously - works OK Replace the NiMah batteries- get several sets and keep one set in the bag charged with one set in the camera. You may be able to 'refresh' the original batteries by putting them into a small flashlight and running them until the bulb goes out. This discharges them completely- then recharge. It is said batteries have a 'memory' so that a battery that is down say 50% and recharged will only recharge that 50% and the other 50% is lost for use. So you have to flatten the batteries completely
