Hi, i have a samsung digimax s800 camera and love it, but the batteries don't appear to be lasting. i have tried the samsung rechargeable one that came with the docking station. this used to last for weeks, but now that doesnt last at all, i have old 1800 mah rechargeables and brand new 2000mah batteies and non make any difference. the battery life goes up and down on the screen and will go from full battery showing to low battery and switches off. the battery bars go up and down and after it flashes low battery and switches off it will sometimes go back on again. any ideas?

check first if battery is ok, maybe your problem is your barrel, if barrel not function properly you need to change motor or barrel allignment. if barrel is ok you have short circuit in your assy pcb main.
According to the Samsung website, the Digimax 800 uses a BP1310 7.4V Lithium-ion rechargable battery, not double "A"s. You can download the manual at the following link: http://www.samsungcamera.com/popup/download.asp?prol_uid=1170&prj_uid=348
the lens mechanism is not initialising, the cogs that move the lens are out of alignment slightly. you colud try and fix this yourself by taking the camera apart and realigning it manually, or sometimes you can get hold of the prodtruding lens and gently pull, be carefull !! you might hear a grinding noise as you pull this is just the main lens cog turning. once fully out put batterys back in and give it a go
i had the same problem with my samsung s800 camera (from new!!!) draining batteries quickly and then being left with the lense out, i took the camera back to where i got it from (argos) and after being asked if i was sure i was putting charged batteries in they sent it away for repair and it turned out that the lense mechanism was broken, i think they charged me £10 to get it fixed but i have had no problems since then.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
