HEY ! my Samsung WB500 won't turn on...I've just bought it, well it was a present but its brand new AND i've charged it and everything, but it won't turn. need help ASAP.


I just had the same problem. All I did to solve it was take the battery out, scratch the contact on the battery (CAREFULLY) and put the battery back in and now it works. The contacts must have oxadised a little. This is not good as far as quality is concerned but it was an easy fix.
Hope this helps!
PS I love my WB500!!!

I have the same problem with my WB500. From the start I haven't been able to charge it via the computer or down load photos. I solved the problem by buying a card reader and a separate battery charger. I tried to get the problem resolved by Samsung, but with no luck, so solved it my way instead

My Samsung WB500 will not connect to my computer any more. The computer is not recognising the device.


Do a restore on your computer to an earlier date that you know when it was recognized

How do I get my samsung WB500 to recognise pictures I have renamed


If you renamed them in your computer and then inserted the card into your camera, they won't show up. The computer uses a different system to write to the card.
