Re: samsung S630 date gets reset while changing the...

It is really NORMAL that the date will be reset to the Manufacturer's date whenever you are changing batteries.

For you not to keep on changing the date and time of your camera, use Rechargeable batteries for a longer battery life span but make sure that you will be setting the battery type of your camera for the Rechargeable ones.

To set the correct battery type.
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see BATTERY TYPE
- Select ALKALINE if you're using NON-RECHARGEABLE
- Select Ni-MH if you're using RECHARGEABLE
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved

Turn off camera after the settings
have been changed to refresh the camera.

Dear Expert, I have a problem with my Samsung L100 camera with the time and date. Somehow when I have uploaded the pictures onto my computer it gives the date of the future for example: May 21st 2013....

The date of your pictures is from the date you took it, So, it must be that last year, May 2010, when took those pictures, your camera's date was not set to 2010. You must also know that when a camera's battery is totally drained and stocked for a long time, the date will be reset. So next time make sure that your date is always right on your camera. =)

But here is a good news. You can just change the dates now after downloading it to your computer. Go to the picture you want to change the date, right click on it and choose properties. Click on details, then "date taken" and change it to any date you want.

I hope this helped you.

Date and time setting

The date/time is in Setup 1 (the wrench icon in the middle). Scroll down to Date & Time, then click the right side of the wheel button to set the date and time.

I hope this helps! If so, please rate the solution.

Is it a power problem or something else

Perhaps you are using low quality batteries-

Does the packaging suggest that they be used for digital cameras? Have you checked their expiry date?

My samsung wont turn on

It's not the camera. Are your batteries suggested for digital camera use? Have you checked the expiry date? this camera is quite the battery ****- even if your batteries show up as fully charged, a lot of brand's don't have enough power to support this camera, so MAKE sure you buy good batteries.

Low battery

Your cam has a not so rare battery drain defect, mine had the same problem.

call Samsung and send yours in, they will either fix it or give you a new one.
