Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Hello there, My Samsung ES55 recently stopped working completely (not turning on) for no apparent reason. I had been taking lots of photos, 153 to be exact, and then it just didn't work. It was still under warranty and when I got it back from the camera shop, they told me it had been dropped - which it hadn't - and whilst it was now working, they would guaruntee it any more. Now the camera works but the images are often blurred. I think it might be an auto-focus problem. When I try and take a photo the central rectangle is usually red and it takes a fair bit of moving the camera around to get it to pick up green. Any ideas.

There may be a fault requiring service (probably not economically viable if they won't do it under warranty), but before you go there, does this camera have a "Macro" feature? This is usually represented by an icon that looks like a flower. If you have set that on, the camera goes into an extreme close-up mode and won't focus on items at normal distances.

Some cameras have a "face recognition" mode that tries to find a face in the shot and focus on that, so check your autofocus modes to see if it is set to something odd like that.

Testimonial: "Two great ideas but unfortunately hasn't solved the problem - but it could have done! It seems to prefer close up objects but its fairly random!"

Hello i have a samsung ce0168 and the speaker is no longer working on it so i have no sound is it possible to have it fixed?


I have a Moto G and the same problem came up after the most recent automatic software update. I use the speakerphone a lot, but it stopped working for no apparent reason. Try turning the volume down (possibly all the way down) and then back up while the speaker is in use. For example, when I make or receive a call and I touch the Speakerphone icon, I then immediately turn the volume down one level and then back up and the speaker works normally. I hope Motorola sends out an update to fix this soon, but, in the meantime, this workaround isn't too bad.

No flash Samsung ES55 cam.


Hu,
Just set your digicam to always flash whenever take photo rather than auto or red eye reduction modes. It will keep your flash when take photo.
If it is not work, then your camera has problem on board and need repair at dealer or local shop.

Hello, I have a samsung es55 camera and need to retrieve some pictures after they have been deleted. I have looked online and it seems this is possible through accessing the recycle bin, thought I can't...


I'm working on the premise that you've deleted the photos from your camera memory or memory card.

If you have and used them since, its unlikely that you'll be able to retrieve them, you could have already over written them.

Its unlikely that you've deleted to your recycle bin, thats on your PC, usually already on your desktop. Camera's normally delete for good.

However, check your pc recycle bin, just double click onto it, it should be on your desk top. Once open you can choose to restore deleted files.

There are 2 file recovery programmes available for free from "filehippo.com" called "recuva" and "PC Inspector File Recovery 4.0". Download and install either of these onto your pc and recover from you camera memory to your pc (just create a folder on you desktop".

Good luck.

there is a switch inside the charging port of the camera that has gone bad. you can find them at lots of repair sites on the internet. (it replaces the entire charging port.) just be sure you are good at soldiering! there are a lot of tiny pieces right around it.
