Battery died during finalizing

We borrowed this camera from a friend and when we were finalizing the dvd-r, the battery died. Now it will not let me re-finalize and my computer will not read the disk. Help!! It is a very important video.

If you cannot finalize the cd but the camera can still play it then you will have to dupe the video to the computer using firewire or usb or video/audio.
likley part of the writing to the vtoc was done and now cannot be repeated.
if you cant play it on the camera you will need more professional help to hack the dvd.

My camera samsung when turned on , the lens out and log in again and power then die


Suspect battery - won't hold a charge. Go to Walmart, borrow a replacement battery that is charged, and test the camera - if no issues with borrowed battery, purchase a new one. Enjoy.
DO NOT force the lens in or out, the gears are tiny and very fragile - another possibility, if the lens moves and then stops and the power dies - gears are jammed or broken. But go for the battery test first. Good luck.

I have the ex-s600 camera and am very happy with the camera but I just tried to recharge it and it never charges. The red light blinks continuously and never turns green.


Remove the battery and make sure the contacts are clean. It might even be sufficient (for a while) to just remove the battery and put it back in. If that works, you should clean the contacts.

The next step is to try another battery. If you can borrow one from a friend with the same model, do so. If that charges, your battery is bad. If it doesn't charge, ask your friend to try charging your battery in the other camera. If it charges, then try borrowing the AC adapter. That will help isolate the problem without spending money. If it goes this far, post a response on your results.

J100 Battery Does Not Work


your battery is a NP45 Li ion ... even if it seems to charge ok it still could be bad ... if you can substitute another battery to make sure ... borrow one from a friend or take it to the place you purchased it and see if they will just try one of their batteries .. or you can see if it will work while its plugged into the charger ... if it does then its likely the battery needs replacing ..

Won't play on any other dvd


You have to use your friend's DVD recorder to finalize the disc. Once the DVD is finalized, it will play in other DVD players.
On your friend's DVD recorder, pop the disc in, and use his remote to go to Setup --> Disc Edit --> Finalize --> OK
Voila!

Finalizing dvd


I had the same problem for about an hour. I finally got it, though not sure how. I think it had something to do with the green button on the on/off switch. I pressed it down while at the same time pushing the on/off button down to "mode". When I went back to finalize it yet again, I got the option to select "Yes". Hooray!
