20 Most Recent Samsung i85 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Sure the battery is charged? Can you operate the camera with just the adapter? If so, does the camera work then. If so the new battery is defective.

Had same problem but mine was still under warranty. Returned to supplier who passed it to Samsung. They had to replace the circuit board. now works perfectly

Firmware update will not solve this issue, most likely someone else has dropped your camera and the connector between the camera and screen is loose or damaged. If you cannot live with the stripes in the viewing screen the camera will need service of repair.

Hello

The problem is 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 center 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.

Regards
Andrea

Jerry, Good try with the hair dryer but it won't work. the damage has already been done, it's like dropping your television in the bath tub and praying it will still work. The repair cost is going to more than a new camera. I know because I repair cameras.

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Hi David: If you can check menu settings there, isn't the LCD screenviewer issue; then sound like a malfunctioning CCD (Charge Coupled Device) image sensor... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card. I suggest check this link for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD and next contact your Canon service. I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

It's a battery problem.

The iris is probably shut closed or the CCD is bad. The iris controls the amount of light that enters the CCD (charged coupled device). Sometime the iris get moisture inside and cannot open. Or the CCD is defective. Leave it in a dry environment for a day. If it doesn't cure then return it to the store for a refund because the CCD will need to be removed and replaced.

Please try this card with your PC and if there is any issues in detection after inserting into the card detection slot, then the card is faulty for sure.
If not make sure there are no foreign particles inside of the slot, make sure with a good air jet the slot is clear.
If there is no detection remove battery, keep it off for few hours/overnight and retry.
If the fault stays the fault is in the interface to the processor in the main board.

Hi,
Unfortunately what you have described indicates that there is a problem with the ccd (the light sensitive chip that produces the image)or the connection to it.

Often in the cameras Setup menu there is an option to be set that makes the camera behave in one of two ways when it is plugged into the computer.

The setting is usually called USB:
The options are, "Disk Drive" and "Camera".

Disk Drive is what you want, so the camera behaves like a flash disk and shares your pictures with the computer when it is plugged in.

Camera mode, will make your camera behave like a web cam attached to your computer.

Finding this setting will requre the correct Mode the camera is in, (probably Review), and the correct menu, often there are different tabs for camera settings and picture taking settings.

Hope this helps.
