Question about Samsung Digimax 301 Digital Camera

Camera Won't Turn On

I've had my camera for about a year and a half. A while ago I was using it, reviewing pictures, and it turned off. I haven't been able to turn it back on, no matter what! I've tried new batteries, cleaning it, etc. I was thinking maybe I put in the batteries incorrectly once and that messed up the camera. Perhaps it's the batteries I was using that caused the problem - they are brand new NI-MH rechargable digital camera batteries I bought at a store. Anyone have any ideas of what could be the problem? (and how to fix it!!) Anyone that can help me turn on my camera... I would deeply appreciate it! Thanks ahead of time!

Have you tried plugging it to the wall AC? Use a reset button if there is one. Leave the camera with batteries out for a day or two. If nothing seems to have an effect take it to a repair shop to get a repair estimate, see if it's worth it. Good luck!

My LCD monitor won't light up to take a picture but it does when I review those I have taken thru the viewfinder

Most screens can be turned off for low battery usage. Check battery with tester or have it tested or replace battery and check menu and see if review screen is turned off. Rich

I haven't turned the camera on for a couple of years. I've tried charging the battery, but I can't get it to power up. Do I need to replace battery or is it something else?

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.

Picture does not appear on the monitor, I must look through the view finder to see what I,m pointing at to photograph

The D40x operates as SLRs have operated for half a century, offering you an optical viewfinder with which to frame and compose your picture. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing.

Nikon introduced the live view feature, which allows you to hold your camera so it wobbles at arms' length, with the D3 and D300, released half a year after the D40x.

While almost all current DSLRs have this capability, it was not so common five years ago when the D40x was introduced.

Nikon d40 monitor is black when camera is on

Does the menu show when you press the MENU button? Can you see your pictures when you press the Playback button (right-pointing triangle)? If so, then there's nothing to fix.
The D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century. There's a viewfinder which allows you to frame and compose your picture. The LCD monitor is for menus, camera settings, and picture review. LiveView, which allows you to use the monitor for shooting, is a recent development, which Nikon introduced into their cameras with the D3 and D300, both introduced years after the D40.

Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way. I can put...

If the lever won't advance even when there is no film in the camera, then I would say there is a problem. (p.s. You haven't told us the make and model)

When I connect the Coolpix S3000 to the computer to transfer pictures, it turns off and won't turn on

I've had some S3000's become gimmicy when connecting to a computer. The easiest way I've found to get photos off of the camera is to use a card reader connected to your computers USB.

Pictures turn out pink & with lines in it.It also displays this on the screen when previewing pictures.Old pictures on the memory card still look normal on the screen when reviewing them. The camera...

Try to reformat your internal memory, and then turn On the camera and use the auto mode or smart scene mode. Take a two pictures on a same subject then review the pictures after, now if the two pictures has lines on it and it has a pink in colors it means that the lens of the camera is defective that`s why it will not take a good picture. Please call kodak 1 800 235 6325 so you can request for repair
