See if you can access the menu and format the card to see if the card is damaged.

They can but there is an inherent issue with those cards. They are RAM memory and can be easily damaged by a lot of things. Static electricity is one downfall of them.

To connect to the computer, you should first install the software on the computer that is on the CD, that came with the camera.
See page 88 of the manual.

Consider 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.

Hello

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

This is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take the unit to your nearest service centre. Feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.

The problem might be that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Do you really need a driver?

I presume you have re-charged or replaced the batteries.

Samsung Cameras | Answered on Jan 11, 2020


Have you considered consulting the relevant page of the manual which would have been supplied with the camera when you purchased it ?

Samsung Cameras | Answered on Jan 01, 2020


Is the battery fully charged?
Is there anything bent or damaged on the camera that is interfering with the lens mechanism?

Hi,

To be able for you to play mp4 videos on your camera, you have to make sure that you have converted the videos to a format acceptable to your device. Formats like , vlc, avi etc. then you also need to check the size of the video as well.

Hope this helps

Thanks
