Suspect dirty battery terminals that may need to be cleaned, or bent upwards, to improve contact with the batteries. Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be seen here.

Samsung digimax s700 gives 3 beeps and turns off


The Samsung digimax takes standard AA batteries (but you already new that). The beeps sound like a flat battery warning.

A lot of reviews of this camera note its very high drain on batteries. Are you using good quality AA batteries (for example Duracell M3 or Energizer lithiums)?

If you are trying to run it with "very inexpensive" alkalines (or worse yet - common zincs), then you may proceed directly to flat battery warning, as they cannot provide enough sustained current to run it.

Camera shows low Battery and goes off even if u insert a new one


are you using NiMh rechargeable batteries?
If yes, check that they are fully charged. If that doesn't do the trick, sounds like it might be a power circuit issue. Samsung is in Secaucus, NJ
or SamsungUSA on the web

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.

Beeping


The beeping is as a result of low power. I found several articles on-line about this, and you are not alone. The best solution I saw was to use NiMH Rechargable batteries. They say it takes the life from 30 shots, to 30 days worth of shots if you get the correct rechargable AA Batteries.

If it is not power, then I am sorry, but I am of no help.

Many people complain about the life of batteries, and this beeping though, best to try it, and see.

Digimax samsung s500 beeps 3 times lens stuck wont stay on


Mine got stuck with lens out. The batteries were new so I never imagined it could be the batteries, but they were cheap ones so I recharged a pair of good ones and once I put tried them on it worked just fine again. Conclusion, the "new" cheap batteries had only enough energy to turn it on and then they couldn't give it enough energy to make it work anymore and that's why I couldn't retract the lens or even turn it off properly. So in your case, try using a couple of good and new batteries.

Camera wont turn on...gives beep sounds and green light glows when pressing power button


Does the lens extend in either of these cases? If there has been some malfunction in the lens and it fails to extend the situation can cause the camera to power-off in order to protect itself. Some cameras show error messages before powering off, others do not. Hold the camera up to your ear and turn the power on. Is there a series of mechanical sounds before the beeps? Hearing sounds but not seeing the lens extend indicates some sort of failure in the lens assembly. If you hear nothing then the problem most likely lies elsewhere, possibly a failed electronic component or something as simple as a loose connection. Check with your manufacturer for any recalls or technical bulletins, and see if they will service your camera under warranty. If not there are a number of repair facilitys available on the internet who generally have better rates than out-of-warranty service at the factory. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
