Question about Samsung Digimax D53 Digital Camera

Problem with startup

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.

Thanks in advance for your assistance

Re: problem with startup

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.

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.

Samsung Digimax D53 will not stay on

This is most likely a lens failure. Try contacting your manufacture if your camera is still under warranty. If not, try contacting your local electronic repair shop to get it fixed. Hope this helps!

Samsung Digimax D53 Camera says low battery but just replaced with brand new ones. Camera beeps and shuts down immediately.

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.

Good luck!

Mine did the same thing. Just let it sit for a couple of days. Don't mess with it. It'll eventually stop doing that and work. That's what i did. It worked for mine.

Did you try this?

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 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.

Samsung Digimax D53 beeps and shuts off

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!!
