Re: Samsung S73 batteries


i got samsung s730 the screen would turn white after i use the cam for more then 30 minutes at a time and the lens would stay extended when it turn off

i hold the picture preview button (looks like arrow point to right in box that square) i hold that, then the lens go back inside and "NO Image!" screen come up, i let it sit at that screen with charged ni-mh batteries, if the screen goes black i do it again, took 5 times, then i power up no problem for 30 minutes again

my guess is the flash cell (the photo cell battery inside) is being charged that way, and is used some what for when you use the camera, thats why i always use PROGRAM MODE with AEB selected.

Re: Samsung S73 batteries

I just called Samsung support about the issue. The solution technical support offered seems to have fixed my problem. Here's what the solution was:

1. Press the button that shows the last picture taken. It is a triangle inside of a box.
2. Now you should see the last picture taken on the back display. Press the Menu button. This is a round button towards the bottom.
3. Use the bigger round button that surrounds the menu button to select Setup2.
4. Under Setup2, navigate down to Battery Type and change from Alkaline to Ni-MH.
5. Exit menu.
6. Now try to the power button.

Wont take a pic and it hasd a flashing red eye

Hi kv,

Normally that would indicate the flash capacitor building enough of a charge to trigger. If the batteries are getting low, this can take a while. The camera may even shut itself off.

Make sure you have good fresh batteries in your camera.

As an alternative, try turning off the flash completely and trying it. That will either confirm it, or make me look like an idiot.

Best regards

Hello. My daughter has had her samsung S73 for 3

The eye flashing is normal when the flash is trying to charge up , if the batteries are healthy the camera won`t take a picture until the flash is charged fully.Try turning the flash off and see if the camera fires, get some higher rated rechargeable batteries (2000mah) or above this may resolve your problem.

Samsung S73 batteries

How long do you keep the batteries in the camera? When the batteroes stay long a liquid oozes out that may reduce the amount of power reaching the camera. clean battery contacts in the camera with an abrasive substance e.g. sand paper and then clean with alcohol or ethanol obtained from the chemist.

You Can Change The Size Of The Picture By Clicking The +/- Button And There You Can Select The Size Used In The Memory For The Picture But You Cannot Change The MegaPixels Used Becase MegaPixels Just Mean The Quality Of The Picture

Began with "low battery". Replaced with new ones. took 3 photos, again message "low battery. Replaced batteries again. Same thing. NOW, , AND BIGGEST PROBLEM CAN'T GET POWER . LENS WON'T RETRACT, POWER...

Hi there.
You may not like this solution, but it's real anyway. Average low-end digital camera life span is approximately 2 years depending on how much you use it. They vary between manufacturer. Low-end cameras ($100. to $200. range) have an approximate 1500 to 3000 shutter clicks which equates to about 1 cent per photo. Granted, more expensive cameras equal more shutter clicks and thusly and lower cost ratio. So, I'm sorry to say that you have just about hit the life span of your device. It would cost more to fix than to purchase a new one.
I hope this helps you, but no one here can suggest a "fix" for it. Thanks for coming to FixYa, and feel free to rate my solution.
