My Samsung Digimax D53 issues several fast beeps then immediately shuts down again on start-up. I have tried new Duracell AA batteries and fully charged rechargeable NiMH AA batteries. The strange part is that sometimes the camera will start up and operate fine for a short period.
Now something that will actually help you. 1) the reason this is most likely happening is that the lens is blocked.
how i fixed this was (I'm not kidding) I hit mine against a card board box. and that dislodged the lens, now it works. you can also just try taking it apart and cleaning it. that gave me an electric shock so be careful.
hope I helped you.
PS "you might need an idiot to do this for you. no kidding."

Does it turn off immediately after the it beeped? Are you using a rechargeable battery? Have you tried fully charging the it? You should also try fresh set of batteries and see if it will resolve your problem.
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.
For digital cameras you should use either Rechargeable(whith high Ampere) or high performance alkaline batteries (ie. Lithium Duracel or Enegizer) normal alkaline batteries will not be able to charge the Flash. If you are useing high performance batteries then it is sadly your camera which is faulty. repairing it you could but it is cheaper to get a new camera.
Well I have had similar problems with this camera model. I tried
several types of batteries and changed the battery type settings from
the menue too... the problem changed a little bit but it did not solve
the issue. I send the camera to Samsung service but got it back with
"no fault found". as I am working in this business I could not
believe that a camera like this is not able to make less than 10
pictures with one set of batteries....I gave not up. here is what I found: when
you open the camera by releasing the little screws from the buddy you
will find several connector clips holding flatcables. this clips have
not been closed correctly. just close them carefully!!! with a forceps
and you will have a nice camera! this work can't be done in hurry...so
take your time.
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.
I had the exact same problem. Camera turned on but turned off soon after, with lens still outside. I noticed the lens was crooked as if it was stuck. I pulled it out and I heard it click into place, for a second I thought I had broken it. I then turned it on and everything was working again ! Whew ! Problem Solved :D Good luck!!
