Question about Samsung Digimax S730 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera won't respond

After taking a picture, the camera made a fizzling sound and the screen went blank. It stopped responding to any buttons and is locked in the on position with thwe lens out. I've used this camera for three days with joy and success, and was on my third x-mas pic when it quit. I've taken about 50 - 60 shots in all. I've tried replacing the batteries, with no results.

    the same thing happened with mine. i got it for my birthday - it never worked quite properly. it would start fizzling and switching modes back and forth and wouldn't respond to any buttons - so i took the batteries out and put them back in to make it work again. it worked that way for about a month, the problem happening more and more and more until it just quit. the lens is stuck out and everything - it won't even turn on!

I just fixed it!, you need to use rechargable batteries, i had it set on rechargable and when i put alkalines in it it made that noise, but when i put rechargables back in it and gave it a slight pat against my hand to make sure nothing was loose inside it came back on and works fine!

Are you formatting the card in the camera as you're supposed to? Have you tried going into the menu and finding "reset" and followed the on-screen instructions? Do you have photos on the internal memory? If so, remove your card and format the camera to erase the memory.

I would suggest a new camera...and never do that again. There's a reason we don't look directly at an eclipse...your camera's sensor doesn't have healing abilities.

THE LCD DISPLAY IS BLANK


I had an older nikon and it gave me that same problem, I was told that it was the internal lenses getting stuck. If that is what your problem is, then take the camera while it is off and slam it against the palm of your hand, I know it sounds pretty weird, and I was nervous to try it, but after a couple of hard hits to the hand, it turned on and stayed on perfectly.

LCD screen stopped working


sounds like the LCD screen viewfinder may have been twisted or accidentally catched or got hooked or snagged on on something at one stage and pulled something, if the screen went yellow it means the three wires going to it are possibly broken or the small white clip was slowly coming undone inside the Viewfinder for the red and green to no longer work to complete the image also indicates why the buttons on the viewfinder are not responding, try twisting the viewfinder very lightly whilst on, but most likely the small white clip holding the wires has come off at the elbow inside the camera
