Samsung s1050 lockup problems

Sometimes the camera locks up when taking a photo on auto setting. the image freezes on the lcd and nothing works, the camera also wont turn off the only way to rectify is to remove the batteries. Sometimes when taking a photo the red beam stays on and the camera locks up with no lcd.

    from the outset the batteries supplied ran out after 20 minutes or so. Thenafter purchasing re chargables, even when left out of the camera when not in use, it would say low battery then turn off. Up side, i've taken 5 very nice pictures!!

    When power button is pressed the green power light comes on and the lens extends but no picture shows on the screen. The camera is frozen and no function can be made. When you take the batteries out the lights go off but the lens does not retract. When the batteries are replaced the green light comes on but again the camera is frozen. At present I can't get the lens to retract and the camera is inoperable.

    Samsung S1050 will lockup when taking a low light picture without flash in AUTO. Only way to reset is to remove batteries. Called Samsung support, "Diane" said I should use rechargable batteries and the problem should go away. I told her the problem occured even with fresh batteries. I suspect they have a software problem and either do not know about it or they are instructing their support personel to lie.

    just got the Samsung s1050- having all the same lock up problems as described by others-freezing, batteries reading low and shutting off (with brand new batteries) etc.

    C'mon Samsung- you are going to lose your reputation.

    Bought the camera.. inserted my brand new £7 Energizer Lithium batteries (Up to 650 photos).. it said that they were dead. Inserted the ones that came with the camera.. took 2 pictures, and the lense stopped moving. Couldn't turn the camera off with the power button. Removed batteries, inserted them.. camera dead. Sent off for a replacement.. Energizer Lithium dead, ones that came with the camera took 6 pictures.. dead.

    Getting a completely different camera... on Samsung's own reccomendations.

    I tried to play back a video and it just froze. the power button would not work, i finally opened the battery compartment and loosened it just enough to turn the power off. it seems to be OK now.

Why is my Samsung S1050 no longer taking photos, the outdoor shots are totally 'burnt out' but most flash photos are fine

Don't know if this is the problem but is the camera set on the right setting.
I had a problem whereby the pics were showing like duotones but then found the setting dial had moved when it was put into its case after use. When re-used I did not check to see if it was on the auto setting hence the problem!!

My samsung s1050 keeps locking up intermitantly. beem stays on.lens freezing.have to re insert batterys over and over to get working. any ideas?

The Samsung S1050 is very battery hungry - make sure you use very fresh new batteries, rechargeable are great - the higher the mAh rating the better. I use Intec rechargeable batteries which are rated at 2900 mAh. If you do use rechargeables, you will have to set the appropriate menu setting for battery type to reflect the type of batteries used.

Samsung L50: I get a very blurry - near white image when taking pics outside. Inside the pics look ok, a little blurry though. Movie recording works fine. Help please. Tried changing batteries, reseting...

Check if you are using Auto settings. It seems you are using Manual (M) and the exposure time is too long for outside conditions (inside there is less light).
Switch the camera to Auto and it should work fine. Please let us know how it went.

Memory card fault or camera fault?

When the camera writes the image files to the memory card, it also creates index/information files. Without those files the camera will not display the images.

Check the software you used to upload the images with. There's probably a checkbox or option that tells it to delete the images from the card after uploading them.

S1050 Samsung crashed?

ok, i had a similar problem I had normal batteries in there... cheap ones... and accidentally set the battery type to NiMh in the camera settings... it wouldnt turn on after that. Make sure you try NiMh batteries in case that might be your problem. Another thing i have noticed (may be just my camera) is that it doesnt want to work if its cold....

I see nothing in the Viewfinder...

The camera has a mirror lock up feature for cleaning the CCD sensor. You may have engaged it. Check your manual about this function
