    My camera which is fairly new also uses batteries almost instantly. It's an s730 and I did not purchase the warranty. Sometimes it will also tell me the battery is full and get stuck with the shutter open. Any answers?

Digital cameras in general use massive amounts of power to supply their internal electronics and that big, beautiful, bright LCD view screen.

We switched to 2500ma NiMH rechargeable batteries. At first they would barely work, about 25 shots and they would die, after 5 to 10 discharge/ recharge cycles though, they now work great. I recharge them every night and like to leave at least one set on the charger all the time to keep it 'topped up'. Most chargers have this feature, ours even has a built in fan for when the batteries get hot (they do on fast-charge mode).

Now the rechargeables work great, we recently went to a race for my daughter and took 1.5 gigs of photos and movies on one set of batteries! Amazing, considering with standard AAs, we would get about 6-10 minutes of 640x480 movies on a set of batteries.

Our rechargeable set is a cheapo Walmart close out (got it for $15- four batteries and charger!) by Digital Concepts.

Hope this helps,

Sorry, the Digimax 201 cannot be used as a webcam. It is designed to store images and videos to memory, not to stream them live to another device.

Help with frozen lense


the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one:
-turn the camera on
-click on Menu button
-select options using left/right, up/down button
-select Set up 2
-Select Battery type
-Select Alkaline for non-rechargable
or Ni-MH for rechargable
-click OK button

this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.

Samsung digimax 201 not turning on not even with fresh batteries


It could be anything... Did you over charged the batteries (if rechargeable)?

can you see if theres any broken tin inside the battery compartment?

does the power button taps normally when depressed?

Samsung Digimax S700 is frozen with lens open


I had this same problem, and all i did was pop out the SD card, and tried turning it on without it in there.  It powered up just fine.  I then replaced the SD card and all was well.  Possibly a problem with teh SD card.

Won't take a picture


There is a Battery Type setting in the Menu of your camera.

Do the following:
- Press Menu/ Ok button
- Go to Set Up 2 (icon looks like a wrench with number 2 on it)
- Scroll down to Battery Type

Under Battery Type, there are two options:
- Alkaline- if you are using non- rechargeable battery
- NiMH- if you are using rechargeable battery
