When this happened in my camera, it meant that the film winder gear was stripped. How old is this camera?

    The good thing about film cameras is that they are repairable. Digital cameras are usually either working or thrown away.

    The bad would be that repairs are sometimes not inexpensive. In my case, the bill was almost $200. The gear itself is cheap--it's the labor involved in disassembling the camera body just to replace it and put everything back together...

Dead battery

Yes, there is almost always a secondary battery for things like the time and date, they usually do not make it easy to get to this battery. For a point and shoot you'll need to take apart the camera.

Samsung ES30 just will not power on

I have similar problem with DiMAGE 7. Even when I use AC adapter the only thing that happens is a low-charge battery image in the display.
Iguess there is an internal battery that keeps the time/date going when the regular power supply is off. The quesrion I have not found an answer to is can I replace the internal battery myself? Or is something else wrong?

Polaroid Time-Zero Pronto AutoFocus is not ejecting film when shutter button pressed

This camera appears to be some 40 years old now, so spares and service are unlikely to be obtainable. Why not replace it with a more up-to-date digital model ?

Lock broke an door for film

Look on Ebay for another one. Either use the new one for parts(unless it works fine) or use it as your main camera and keep the parts one for spares.
This might be a good time to switch to 35mm.

Need to reset time and date every time I turn on camera.

The backup battery needs to be replaced. This small button battery (CR1220) provides the power for your camera to 'remember' settings when you change or remove the AA batteries. Instructions for changing this battery are in the manual on page 191 (US version of manual).
You can view/download the manual here.

Did you try this?

Well I have had similar problems with this camera model. I tried several types of batteries and changed the battery type settings from the menue too... the problem changed a little bit but it did not solve the issue. I send the camera to Samsung service but got it back with "no fault found".
as I am working in this business I could not believe that a camera like this is not able to make less than 10 pictures with one set of batteries....I gave not up.
here is what I found:
when you open the camera by releasing the little screws from the buddy you will find several connector clips holding flatcables. this clips have not been closed correctly. just close them carefully!!! with a forceps and you will have a nice camera! this work can't be done in take your time.

Samsung S630 date gets reset while changing the batteries

It is really NORMAL that the date will be reset to the Manufacturer's date whenever you are changing batteries.

For you not to keep on changing the date and time of your camera, use Rechargeable batteries for a longer battery life span but make sure that you will be setting the battery type of your camera for the Rechargeable ones.

To set the correct battery type.
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see BATTERY TYPE
- Select ALKALINE if you're using NON-RECHARGEABLE
- Select Ni-MH if you're using RECHARGEABLE
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved

Turn off camera after the settings
have been changed to refresh the camera.
