Question about Samsung Digimax V4 Digital Camera

Samsung Digimax V4 Power Consumption

I bought this camera a while ago, everything on this camera works fine but I think I have some problems with power supply.. I use 2100mAh GP batteries. I have a feeling that it consumes power too fast - I did a test.. I turned off the Power off mode and then waited till it turned off by itself because of a low battery power.. It lasted 45 minutes to do so. I think that batteries should last longer? or I'm wrong? i also noticed that when I was taking pictures in a medium resolution mode i took about 120 pictures using flash.. but when i turned it into a high resolution mode i could only took about 40 pictures with flash is that normal or is something wrong with my camera?

I had similar symptoms as well until it finally died: 1) First started eating batteries like crazy, especially standard AA and rechargeables. The CRV3 seemed to work a bit longer. 2) One day out of nowhere the autofocus stopped working. I replaced the batteries and it worked again for 10 shots. Then the autofocus stopped working and battery died (with the lens stuck open). Pressing power, the LCD backlight flashes on, the LED in the view finder blinks, and the lens motor makes noise. Then nothing just stuck open. 3) Again new batteries and was able to close lens, take a few pictures and dead again with lens stuck open - same problem in 2. 4) Replaced the batteries a couple times and was able to get a shot or two off, and now its complete stuck open, even with brand new batteries - with same problem in 2 it just won't turn on. I finally sent it to Samsung the week of Christmas. I called Friday 1/7/05 to check and had to leave a voicemail. They called back Monday 1/10/05 to let me know they recieved it and that I should call back Thursday to check its status.

Wacker gp 5600 will not power anything above 3400 watts, any ideas on what may be causing this issue. we have checked everything (wires, fuses,gfci)unit still will trip circuit breaker at 3400 watts.


5600 is the maximum wattage it can handle during a power surge, the this is not the load it can carry all the time. I think you have no problem here.

Found this post re: Sony C:31 errors
http://www.camerahacker.com/Forums/DisplayComments.php?file=Video%20Camera/Sony/Sony_DCR-TRV18_-_Error_Code.
In a nutshell: - Remove tape and close door - Remove all power supplies (battery and AC) - Smack the bottom of the camera hard with your palm - Reattach power supply, insert tape and try again
This solution has worked for me, but problem usually reappears after a few uses.

Casio cameras use generally chinese batteries. They are mostly under an acceptable quality. So the battery you have bought may be out of order. I do not think that your camera is out of order.
Try another working battery.
If it will not work then send me a comment and lets control additionally.

Hi Cacy,
I don't want to offend you, please don't take it that way, but since your problems began with the addition of the new battery... I have to ask the question. Are you absolutely sure you bought the right battery for your camera?
It takes a NB-2LH battery pack. If your sure you purchased the correct battery for the camera, and since you dropped it, I would check to make sure it seats properly in the camara and that it locks properly. Also the cover should close with a CLICK sound. If it doesn't then perhaps the battery is not locking in properly. Double check it and let me know if you still have problems.

Cannot power on to take photos


I found that one has to use their batteries of at least 2100mAh and NI-MH. I recharged my batteries removed the new ordinary alkaline batteries I had put in and BINGO IT WORKED. Just to prove the point I put in another set of Alkaline batteries No good. It must be that NI-MH Batteries rated at 2100mAH have more power (or one can draw more currentat start up) a battery guru could maybe veryify my conclusions. Anyhow try NI-MH batteries and see how you go. Best of luck fredlich

Camera won't turn ON


First off, everything was not fine until this morning. You had this occur a month ago. Frankly, I would have done exactly as you did a month ago and nothing more. I have seen too many electrical problems permanently solved by turning a device off and then on, or by rebooting. Here is what I would generally recommend: 1. See what the camera manual suggests. 2. Charge the batteries fully before using them. New ones are often not charged up. They could have been in a warehouse for months. 3. The electrical contacts on your camera, the ones that interface with the batteries, may be a little corroded. If you can access them easily, try cleaning them with the eraser on the end of a pencil. Same with the batteries themselves. 4. If exposed to prolonged high humidity, electrical problems may include not only the power supply, but other electrical switches, such as the reset button., which you cannot address on your own. 5. Call Sony.
