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.

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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
