I tried alkaline batteries in this camera and it would only work for a few pictures, then it would go unstable and do unpredictable things. The lithium batterys also caused problems like the ones you described. As a last resort I found that there was a ni-mh battery for this camera. I could not find this accessory. I purchase some batteries and charger then installed them into camera. reset the camera using the reset function, then tested camera. It now works correctly and consistantly takes good pictures. If the camera does not work with the ni-mh batteries it might be damaged or bad.

@ alan o'brien, Samsung D53 digimax draws a lot of current from the battery thus, you need to replace your batteries with a HIGHER current ratings, sufficient enough to run the motor. This miniature motor inside the D53 camera drives the reduction gears functions, to extend and retract the mechanical lens. During this processes it is drawing a lot of current from the battery. In order to conserve and prolong battery power avoid zooming in and out, utilize the function speed 50-400 and manually adjust aperture to minimize the unnecessary use of flash. In other words, go manual mode. Here's the battery specs. 2800ma NiMH rechargeable battery. Refer and follow manufacturers recharging instructions for best result. Do not leave batteries inside the camera even when not in use because the circuit inside is still on the standby mode and not necessarily off. Hope i have satisfy your curiosity. If you can, kindly share with me some of your best photo taken from your D53 digimax. Thank you.

Short battery life with AAs or camera won't even power up on new batteries?


Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

Samsung Digimax D53 wont turn on at all brand new batteries and still wont turn on


Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

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!

D53 camera will not fully turn on...help??


If you've tried the suggestions for similar problems on here - use NiMH or lithium batteries (not alkalines), then it may be a warantee job. Afraid I don't have any other suggestions.

Broken Camera


It''s the battery..you need to buy rechargable batteries or lithium batteries. These batteries are specialied made for digital cameras. The lense is shutting off and or stuck because there isnt enough power/energy from the batteries. This is also a COMMON problem in these specific models! You can buy recharge batteies wityh the chrager and like 4 aa batteries for around $20.00 at wal-mart..Energizer is a nice one that plugs right into your wall outlet to recharge. My camera Samsung diximax D53 Works great now taht O realized it was teh batteries..No vody told em, and it doesnt specify which batterios to use in teh camera manual..at least I dont think..I even thought the camera came with regular alkaline batteries ( the ones taht wont work fior this camera)?

Samsung Digimax D53; 5.0 megapixels


Mind did the same thing. Try taking out the memory card. If it works after that, you'll have to buy a new memory card.
