    This camera is junk. I have returned mine TWICE to Samsung for this problem. It still happens.

    Now in trying to resolve any kind of help, I can tell u that their customer support is horrible. Unless all u want to do is send it back ( already did twice, not doing it again!) they are not helping me. I have only had the camera 7 months and it's USELESS.

Dear customer

thanks for ur inquiry for ur product

If the LCD screen is blank or black when you have your camera in the Camera or Play mode, the camera may need service. To determine if this is the case, follow these steps:

1. Press the Menu button to see if the LCD screen can display the OSD (On Screen Display). 2. Set your camera to Play mode, and then see if the LCD screen displays a picture. 3. To eliminate the possibility of a user setting causing the problem, put the unit into Auto mode by rotating the dial on the units exterior to Auto Mode. Note: The word "Auto" appears on the screen when this mode is activated. 4. If putting the camera into Auto mode does not resolve the problem, test the unit in Play mode. If the unit operates normally in Play mode, but the screen in Camera mode is blank, your camera requires service which you can arrange by Creating a Service Ticket below. Note: Because your camera has an automatic LCD display shutdown feature, its normal for the LCD to stop displaying when the camera has been on for along period of time. This feature prolongs battery life.

urs sincerely

When I am connecting my Samaung Digital model S860 with PC having Windows Xp (Profectional) via USB cable, nothing is happening at PC screen. Also I don't have driver CD with my camera. Please sen


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

My Samsung S860 won't even turn on anymore. I changed the batteries but it is still not doing anything. Is there something I should do?


Same thing just happened to us. The green light comes on and the lens opens up but the screen stays blank and it gets stuck here. My daughter barely used this camera - only has taken about 180-200 pictures since she received it as a gift.

Screen stays black


Move all the pictures to the camera memory card from your internal memory. Since you have to open the camera, the pictures will be lost otherwise. Save your pictures. If you do not have a memory card, transfer all the pictures to your computer.

Remove batteries from the camera.

Purchase a replacement LCD screen, specific to a Samsung S860 camera. These replacement screens can usually be purchased directly from Samsung or from a camera resale shop. Auction websites should also carry LCD screens specific for these cameras.

Use the mini screwdriver to remove the four screws from the back of the camera. Be careful with this step since the screws are tiny.

Take the back cover of the camera off carefully. Inside the camera, there is a piece of foam that supports the LCD screen. Do not remove the foam. Set the bottom portion of the camera to the side.


Turn the top portion of the camera so it is facing upward. Notice how there are clips holding the LCD screen in place. Carefully lift these clips up and remove the broken LCD screen. The screen clips are extremely fragile and break easily if they are lifted too quickly. A gentle touch is key.

Place the new screen down gently and replace the clips. Gently dust the screen so fingerprints are removed.

Turn the top portion of the camera down so the screen is pointing down. Place this on top of the foam padding.

Turn the screws carefully. The best way to screw the back of the camera in place is to first screw in one corner, move to the corner that is diagonally across and turn that screw. Repeat for the other two screws.

Replace the batteries. Turn the camera on and see if it is function

Samsung s860 camera got dropped turns on but screen is only white


dropping the camera might have caused damage to your LCD screen, best advise I could give is to send it in for repair

check if you can still view old pictures or if the on screen displays are visible, it will narrow down if the problem is with the lens or the screen

hope this helps

hmm,
while plugged up to a usb to computer it might be blank...

I would plug it up and go to "my computer" and find the drive (usally the last letter like g) and find folders and and open them and store the pics to the hard drive.

if the camera is blank screen always... you got a problem with the camera.. I need more info.
like when this happened and if you dropped it?

hope I helped in some way
