Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
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.

The pros never use the camera....they always use a separate card reader. You should too.

When I switch on to download photos the camera lense slightly comes out and there is also no beep noise that normally follows, it is not letting me download?


Even if the USB cable is connected perfectly to the camera and PC it still is not sure everything in the cable and both connectors is 100%. Or even the drivers in the computer can be corrupted.
Start with another cable, and if possible try to connect another camera to the compeer, to check the computer acts normal to that.
Always try to isolate a problem to one thing.
For the time being, you perhaps could place the memory card in an external card reader connected to the computer, to put the pictures on your computer that way?

Resume light coming on but printer won't work


Normal 0 Probably has corrupt driver.
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have just recently purchased a Samsung SHB J700, and have just installed the PC programe. I have checked that the software it up to dtae. But when trying to sync the phone to the PC, the USB connection...


after you've installed the samsung software and driver,

plug the USB cable for your phone into the BACK of your PC (or a "USB2 slot"), your computer should detect the device properly now.
the USB ports at the front often are not USB2 ports (or aren't configured properly).

this is worth a try before contacting samsung for support.
