Help with s630 Digital Camera

No matter what I use the camera does not stay charge even when it is off. I use rechargeable batteries and even when the camera stays off, the next day the camera refuses to go on and I have to recharge the batteries again and they don't stay charged for long.

    batteries keep going down within minutes

  • tbuger Apr 27, 2008

    The camera eats batteries like crazy. I used 6 new batteries in a 15 minutes span. The batteries would last long enough to take about 3 pictures each and then the low battery indicator light would come on and that was it.

    Help!!!

Change the brand and type of batteries you use if the camera appears to discharge too quickly.

I have found a lot of incompatibility with certain brands of camera and battery. As for rechargeables, as above... they go bad, no questions. =-]

Rechargable batteries actually do not recharge the 100 times advertised. After maybe 10 times they are reduced in capacity noticably. For instance, new alkaline batteries will last me maybe 60 pictures, however the rechargables are only good for about 5. To test this try taking out the batteries, and put back in before you wish to try them, also turn off the flash if it is not needed.(flash uses a lot of power)

Hi, I have a Nikon coolpix S630 camera - 8 mnths old. Whenever I switch on the camera it says 'Battery Exhausted' and when I try to recharge the same, but it is not charging. Please help. /Suresh


if the camera still under warranty, i suggest to bring it to the center to have it checked both the battery and the cable and also the camera for possible problem. i have a nikon cam before and experienced the same problem, after sending it to the service center, they replaced the battery with a new one and the camera is now ok.

that means your batteries are not charged fully. I'm assuming you have new fresh batteries? Does the panel stay up long enough to show the charge level?

The camera doesn't turn on at all. Tried new duracells and freshly charged rechargables. The green light comes on whilst the switch is held down but nothing happens, nothing on the screen and the lens...


Hello. Begin by cleaning all of the terminals in the camera and all of the battery terminals with the eraser end of a common pencil. you may merely have a thin coating of corrosioin preventing you from getting a good connection and also a good recharge.
If that does not fix it, try these steps:
f your camera will not turn on, do the following:
  1. Remove all sources of power (batteries and AC Adapter) from the camera.
  2. Remove the Picture Card.
  3. Wait a full minute.
  4. Press the Power button twice.
  5. Connect the appropriate AC Adapter to the camera.

Low battery


Your cam has a not so rare battery drain defect, mine had the same problem.

call Samsung and send yours in, they will either fix it or give you a new one.

Fun mode and batteries


Dont use Ni-cd batteries, only NiMH or the new "Oxy" batteries from Panasonic, 5X the power of Alkaline and higher voltage, GREAT disposable battery for a Digi-cam. Some cams will NOT work on the old zinc batteries, even brand new. Fun mode is probably just to edit anyway, probably not a shooting mode.

S630 lens out and wont turn on


Cameras belonging to the S Series really do have a battery type option that needs to be set up first for proper power connection.

Recommended batteries are just:
- Alkaline (Non-rechargeable)
- Nickel-metal Hydride (Rechargeable)

Just the proper battery type by:

- Pressing MENU/OK button
- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Keep on scrolling down and look for battery type
- Press the right button to pick up on 2 options
like Alkaline and Ni-MH
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Keep pressing MENU/OK to get out of the MENU

Once, it's done, camera needs to be turned off for a few seconds
so that settings made will be refreshed with the camera.

As you turn camera on, you're now ready to take many pictures.

ALKALINE (Non-rechargeable) batteries when set to the correct battery type will really take a maximum of 100 pictures.

For the Rechargeable batteries (Ni-MH), when those are fully charged, and the battery type is set to Ni-MH, it will be taking more than a hundred of course.

I hope this help you a lot.

Won't stay turned on!


IF YOU GO IN TO YOUR CAMERAS MENU AND OPTIONS YOU WILL FIND A SETTING FOR THAT. EITHER UNDER POWER SAVER OR MAIN CAMERA OPTIONS AND SETTINGS. I HAD TO CHANGE MY DELAY TIME TO MAX. ALL CAMERAS NOW HAVE A TIME DELAY BEFORE POWERING OFF TO SAVE YOUR BATTERIES. ITS A GOOD IDEA IF YOU ACCIDENTLY SET YOUR CAMERA DOWN AND FORGET. BUT IT IS A PAIN WHEN IT COMES SET FOR 5 SECONDS. HOPE THATS ALL IT IS

Wont stay on


You probably don't have the batteries fully charged up. Also you will need to change battery type from alkaline to metal hydride in the "wrench2"(the last icon on the menu) menu. You did get metal hydride rechargeable batteries??? If you got nickel-cadmium rechargeables that might also be your problem with your camera as they don't have enough power.
