Question about Samsung Digimax D53 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Samsung Digimax D53 goes dead when taking pictures

When installed new batteries, whether it be rechargable or alkaline, the camera shuts off when i go to take a picture. I push the picture button and the camera shuts off. What's the deal. I've looked online for help, there doesnt seem to be any. Help please. This camera is only a year or so old.

If you plug it into an electrical outlet (if you have a power cord for your camera) does it do the same thing?

If you already replaced the batteries and you don't have a way of plugging a power cord in it, it sounds like you have a power problem with the camera.

You should take it into a camera shop and have them look at it.

Where can i find new samsung model: SNB-2312 batteries for my samsung Digimax D53 camera?


This camera takes AA size batteries, which can be rechargeable or just disposable Alkaline cells. You would have got a set of alkaline AAs with the camera, and when these expire, you just put in a fresh set, that you can buy anywhere. They don't need to be Samsung. DON'T use cheap zinc or "long life" AAs, though. They are not up to the task, and can leak and corrode your camera.

NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2700mAH are available, and these will last longer, per charge, than name brand alkalines, as well as being rechargeable. You can buy these with a charger fairly cheaply now (though they obviously cost more than disposables). You will probably want two sets, one to be on charge while you use the other.

Tip

Short battery life with AAs or camera won't even power up on new batteries?


Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

Draining rechargable batteries;


Carry spare alkaline batteries - just in case...
Does the same symptom happen with alkaline batteries?
Lithium Ion batteries are 1.2volts
Alkaline are are 1.5volts
Rechargeable Alkaline batteries are 1.5volts

Perhaps you should switch to Rechargeable Alkaline batteries if the symptom goes away when you use alkaline batts...

Samsung Digimax D53 Camera says low battery but just replaced with brand new ones. Camera beeps and shuts down immediately.


For digital cameras you should use either Rechargeable(whith high Ampere) or high performance alkaline batteries (ie. Lithium Duracel or Enegizer) normal alkaline batteries will not be able to charge the Flash. If you are useing high performance batteries then it is sadly your camera which is faulty. repairing it you could but it is cheaper to get a new camera.

Good luck!

Recently changed the battery and now everytime I shoot a picture the camera goes off and has to be re-powered back on to take another. Now, it won't power back on.


you need to check that you have put in the correct type of battery. Some cameras will only work with alkaline batteries.. I had this problem with my samsung when i inserted zinc batteries instead of alkaline, I use duracell cause they are pretty good for taking lots of shots before running out.

Camera wont turn on unless i take the batteries out


I tried alkaline batteries in this camera and it would only work for a few pictures, then it would go unstable and do unpredictable things. The lithium batterys also caused problems like the ones you described. As a last resort I found that there was a ni-mh battery for this camera. I could not find this accessory. I purchase some batteries and charger then installed them into camera. reset the camera using the reset function, then tested camera. It now works correctly and consistantly takes good pictures. If the camera does not work with the ni-mh batteries it might be damaged or bad.

Camera will not turn on


Are you sure the batteries are fully charged? I would suggest using rechargeable not alkaline batteries.

Whats wrong


What kind of batteries are you using? I had this problem with a Samsung camera when using alkalines. It behaved much better with rechargeables or oxyride batteries.
