    When the camera is switched on it stays on for only a second then switches off again. The camera is fully charged and I can view pictures already taken. Have checked that the charger is working and also tried to charge from usb port on computer.

How to know battery power in nv3 camera

When the camera is switched on, the battery condition is displayed on the LCD monitor. There is a little battery, with 3, 2, 1 or no bars in it, indicating Full; 3 bars, Low capacity; two bars, one bar and none bar. In all three cases, you should be prepared to recharge the battery. But if really there are no bars, don't shoot pictures anymore,
Recharge or place a spare battery, if you do have one (or more)

When I turn my camera on, it says to turn off and on again.

dear sir,
the first suspect is your battery,ahich is running in low battery....kindly recharge the battery for few hours and then put your camera on........
next,the problem is usually caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not to function,the only solution is to flash ur cam software from the nearest samsung service centre
thank you.....take care................

Samsung NV3 Camera

Hey Rider18,
I would try taking the battery out and waiting a minute or two and then reinserting the battery. If this doesn't work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician, or you could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

SD Card Wont Work

Check if the SD card is iserted properly into the camera, eventually pull it out and push it back inside the camera. Also remove camera batteries , repeat the operation, and put back batteries.
If the card still does not work test the card into a different device, it is not unfrequent that an SD card comes defective from factory. In this case take the card back to the retailer and a have it changed.
If the card works on a different device, then it may be that the NV3 does not support 4 GB , there is no mention about max SD format supported in camera specs, or in the manual. In this case I suggest testing a 1 or 2 Gb card at the shop, and then buying right one.

Won't charge!!

Hey ppl, my camera has just doen the same, it wont charge although it works completely fine in all other cases. Ive had it just over a year. Has anyone tried using a new cable? Or is it defintely the camera thats the problem? Either was a simple solution is to buy a charger for the battery itself, one thats independant of the camera. Its not as convienient, as you need to remove the battery and place it in a stand to charge, but it does solve the problem :-D They cost about £10.
