    Does your camera have a charger with it or a way of plugging electrical power to it?

The 3.3v is for a charger. If you camera has rechargeable batteries in it, thats where that goes.

Samsung.com has them available on their website.

You could inspect the battery contact to see if their getting a connection. sometimes they get bent, corroded, or oxided. You can try cleaning them up.

Hi,
Clean the battery terminals and clean the metal contacts in your camera and insert your battery and check, whether you get low battery warning.

Hope this helps.

Hi---our Digimax won't stay powered up, even with fresh batteries. When the power button is pushed, we get a green light for about two seconds, then camera shuts down. Any tips?


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

No picture on screen after 1 second


Try this. Go to your tools menu, look for something like power saver or display off and change the duration that the screen stays on.

HELP!


Use lithium batteries. I had a problem when our camera would turn on for a few seconds, beep 3 times, and then shut off. The best batteries, which are actually recomended for this camera is the lithium batteries. I strongly suggest them.
