Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Digimax S500 5.1 mega pixels

The camera still functions but the 'screen' has been knocked and doesn't show what you are taking. As there is no viewfinder other than this screen its difficult to use. Can you tell me if there is any way it can be repaired and if so how much would it cost. The camera is about two years old.

    I felt it inappropriate because I am in England and you priced the repair in dollars! Thanks for the info you gave, but I wanted to know if a new screen could be fitted and at what price (sterling)and where.

Well, either the LCD screen or the ribbon connectors are at fault. Depending upon the cause, it could cost you between $50-$150 for a repair.

    Why an inappropriate rating??? I told you what you needed to know!
    Please change the rating to something like helpful.

    Yes, I agree. The website should be a little clearer on what the ratings mean..Inappropriate and Thanks for trying are negative ratings..Ratings here can make or break a Fixya Expert...

    Well,I'm not sure how much it would cost in Sterling, however, a new screen CAN be fitted. It would be best to contact an authorised service center. You can find one here:

    However, most electronics repair stores can do this too, if you can't find a service centre thats close enough..

I have a A7 digimax Samsung digital camera 7.0 mega pixels and when I turn it on the screen is blank so I can not see to take a picture and when I do the picutre comes out black as well.


This is a problem with the CCD imaging in the camera. To put it simply the camera needs major repair. You can follow this link to inquire with samsung about getting it repaired.

Zoom error - samsung digital camera 4.0 mega pixels


Most likely the lens has been knocked out of aligment. If you look head on at the lens. The gap should be the same all the way around. You can try and "click" it back in to place yourself. Otherwise the camera is in need of repair, which based on most peoples level of experience should be left to a professional.
Thanks,

Using Internal Memory...now says memory full, no image!


I own the same camera, Not sure about no pictures showing in the memory but you can get a 2 gig memory card for around $20 in stores or around $15 or $16 on ebay, holds over 700 pictures at the highest resolution. Also try to download your pictures to your computer if you haven't already. Hope this helps.
