Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

Hi jenn8918,
I had the same problem until a friend of mine told me to use Energizer LITHIUM batteries instead (Silver and blue packaging).
 I will warn you ahead they are expensive (1 pack of 2 goes for about & $ 8:00 to $9.00 but they last quite a while (and I use my camera every day practically) they last me about 3 to 4 months. using anything other than the Lithium batteries is a waste of money ...believe me, I've learned my lesson by trying every "super" alkaline battery only to quit on me after 1 hrs use!

Good luck.
Denise

This new battery, if it is the exact type of battery recommended by the manufacturer then it is most likely not the battery. if you bought a similar battery it might be for even the minimum difference makes all the difference with digital cameras. for camera repair this company does a good job and you can even select your problem on their online quote. www.teleplancamerarepair.com

The autofocus motor is stuck. It's a Samsung common problem and can't be fixed by the user. If it's still under warrenty you can send it to the the listed repair facility in NYC, otherwise you might wind up paying aa much as what you bought if for. BTW, they fixed mine while it was still under warrenty and three months later, it's broken again with the same problem. My advice? DON'T BUY ANOTHER SAMSUNG PRODUCT AS LONG AS YOU LIVE!!

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.

We had similiar problems with ours until we started making sure the camera was kept warm when it was shut off. For some reason, it and the batteries don't like the cold...we were able to extend the battery life if we kept it covered when we weren't using it.
