Camera Samsung S800

Hi! My name is Jason McCool, and I have a new problem. I just bought the camera on 10/15/2007 and the camera powers on just fine but it won't do anything after that. I usually have to wait about 20 minutes before the buttons start working and I still have to wait for the camera to take pictures. The power light comes on then just the light shuts off but the camera is still on. Can you help me??? My email address is

On my Samsung Digimax S800, when I put the memory card in, it says to check sd card. What do I do about it?

When the card worked before, check if you did not switch the lock switch down. And check all contacts on the card and in the camera. They should be clean and shiny.
When you recently bought a new card you could have bough a SDHC card and these won't work in your S800.
The S800 only accepts MMC and SD cards, The SDHC and SDXC cards won't work.
A few years ago you still could buy 4 Gbyte SD cards. Now even most 1 Gbyte and 2 Gbyte cards are already SDHC. SDHC was introduced at least 7 or 8 years ago, so all new devices accept SDHC. The SDXC was introduced at least 4 years ago, so in a couple of years, you perhaps only can buy these cards?

this problem is a is usual occurrence when the camera is not well powered.
ie. the battery might not have enough charge on it or might have gone bad and require you to replacei it.

please ensure you get the battery with right voltage and wattage, the required is usually written around or in the battery compartment.

S800 powers on and goes off, lens stuck zoomed out.

i had the same problem with my samsung s800 camera (from new!!!) draining batteries quickly and then being left with the lense out, i took the camera back to where i got it from (argos) and after being asked if i was sure i was putting charged batteries in they sent it away for repair and it turned out that the lense mechanism was broken, i think they charged me £10 to get it fixed but i have had no problems since then.
