The condition you described is usually a problem with power to the circuit board in Samsung cameras. I know you mentioned the battery but try the following:
1. Ensure battery is good
2. Remove the battery from the camera.
3. Let the camera sit with the battery removed
for approximately 60 minutes.
4. Clean your battery contacts on the battery and in the camera with a clean cloth, or Q-tip dampened with alcohol or contact cleaner.
5. Reinstall the battery and try to power on the camera. If your camera still doesn't work it will need to go in for service.
won't record photos.
Make sure you've selected a photography mode with your camera, rather than a
playback mode or a video mode. If your camera's battery power is low, the
camera might not be able to record photos.
if your camera's internal memory area or your Memory card is full, the camera won't record
any more photos.
With some cameras, the internal software only
allows a certain number of photos to be recorded on a single memory card
because of how the software numbers each photo. Once the camera hits its limit,
it won't save any more photos. (This problem is more likely to occur when an
older camera is paired with a new, large memory card.) The battery is the root
of most common digital camera issues. Though battery life has been extended as
battery and digital camera technologies evolve, no battery lasts forever. When
your batteries begin to run out, sometimes your camera responds in wacky ways
that may not seem connected. The flash may not come on, the autofocus won't
engage as quickly as it did before or the LCD screen will power off
intermittently. All of your camera's responsiveness is linked to its battery
strength. Change batteries and try to recreate a problem; odds are you won't be
able to. It's a good idea to carry a backup battery for cameras that use
lithium-ion cells or a pack of spares for cameras that use AA. Watch your
battery icon for a general idea of
Solution 1 • Unlock focus area selector. • Auto-area AF selected for Custom Setting 2 (AFarea mode): choose another mode. • Press shutter-release button halfway to turn monitor o?¬? or activate exposure meter • Memory card is full, locked, or not inserted. • Flash is charging. • Camera is not in focus. • CPU lens with aperture ring attached without locking aperture at highest f/-number. • Non-CPU lens is attached: rotate camera mode dial to M. • Mode dial rotated to S after shutter speed of bulb selected in mode M: choose new shutter speed • P, S, A, and M modes: lower ?¬? ash. • Digital Vari-Program modes: turn ?¬? ash o?¬? Turn long exposure noise reduction o?¬? Turn long exposure noise reduction o?¬? Press multi selector up or down or rotate sub-command dial to choose photo information displayed Select All for Playback folder. Note that Current will automatically be selected when next photo is taken • Select On for Rotate tall. • Photo was taken with O?¬? selected for Auto image rotation. • Camera orientation was changed while shutter-release button was pressed in continuous shooting mode. • Camera was pointed up or down when photo was taken Use Nikon-approved card. • Card may be damaged. Contact retailer or Nikonauthorized service representative. • Delete unwanted ?¬ les or insert new memory car
Had this problem myself and found that the voltage of the battery was too low for the camera to charge (2.8 volt,s)
I manually charged the battery up past 3 volt,s then put it back in the camera and plugged it in--the light did stop flashing and did finaly turn green.
Or just get an external charger online for cheep.
I just posted another solution on the main link. Basically hook up the unit to the ac adapter, reset the menu to get rid of the blinking red light, and then put a new tape in on camera mode. The unit was able to record again and also work in camera mode.
it means you have no back up battery installed to save time/date info. I know on the GL2 if you open the LCD screen there is another small plastic tab you can open and insert a relatively small battery. Do it and the icon will disappear. Otherwise its no big deal. If you dont need time/date stamps on your tapes then there is no need to install the battery unless you are just annoyed.
This sounds similar to a problem I had. I brought the camera in under warranty and the repair shop fixed it. They shop text is cryptic.
Problem: Camera light keeps flashing, not charge
Solution: Troubleshoot to intermittent switch block control, replace with new one, test OK.
