Question about Samsung Digimax A7 Digital Camera
no matter if the batteries are new alkaline or rechargeable, camera shuts down and displays "low battery"-very frustrating! Peggy
I had exactly this problem and found the solution - I was using the wrong type of batteries.
You might be doing the same so what you need to do is check to see what mAh the batteries you're using. I was using Energizer rechargables with 1300mAh when the camera stopped working and switched to 2500mAh rechargables (on the advice of a friend) as a last desperate attempt to get it to work and it solved my problem. I got 2500mAh Energizer rechargables and would advise the same but you should go for batteries with at least 2100mAh.
I hope this helps some people :)

THIS IS NOT A SOLUTION, BUT i FOUND THAT WHEN IT SHUTS OFF JUST SWITCH IT BACK ON AGAIN, YOU CAN TAKE 3 OR 4 MORE THEN SHUTS OFF AGAIN. SWITCH ON AGAIN AND GET A FEW MORE. THIS WAY I GET ALMOST 50 SHOTS PER SET OF BATTERIES, NO MATER THE MAKE. iT'S A GOOD CAMERA, i JUST THINK IT HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE BATTERY LEVEL SENSOR. HOPE THIS HELPS

I can't understand why, but my A7 instantly shuts down with fresh alkaline batteries, two of which supply just over three volts. Install NiMh batteries which total only 2.8 volts and the darn thing works. On the other hand, my Olympus uses four batteries and works fine with alkalines, but if I use the rechargeable NiMh batteries it will only take a few pics before the batteries get too low to power it. Very confusing.

Make sure the batteries are all the same brand sometimes that helps but it does sound like theres a problem with the camera itself, If the batterys good then it means its not holding a charge maybe take it too a camera expert-depending on what is wrong with it, It might be cheaper to buy a new camera than get it fixed.
