RANDOMLY my digital camera (samsung digimax 360) has just stopped working - well in the sense that the lcd screen shows only black instead of whatevers in front of me - as if the lense was covered, but it is still opening. The LCD screen isnt broken as it still displays the samsung logo etc... when i take the photo it says "low light" and the picture is just of complete blackness. Jessops where i bought it from tells me i'll have to pay them £40 just for a repair quote, and my insurance excess is £50, so i'm halfway to a new camera if i pay all that. I've been told i can send it into samsung and they'll do me a quote for free but i wondered if there was something i'm missing (yes i've taken the batteries out, and reset it, with no luck). Cheers!
Whilst it's nice to know it's a chip, which one, and is it related to the very badly flowsoldered pec I have found? This makes it a manufactures problem and should be addresed. The fact that the solder paste makes it hang in untill past warrenty is not on IMHO.
May I also suggest saying to just sell on eBay is NOT quite playing cricket as some youngster (as I know) will end up buying with little pocket monies and then be very upset. Sorry, my opinion.

lens assembly (barrel unit) struck up. slightly push lens while power off & pull the lens while power on. repeat this 2 to 3 times it will works. dont apply any oil in the barrel unit. but you may use body spray or room spray to solve this issue permanently
If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that is preventing the camera from powering up properly. If it hasn't been dropped, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or 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, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
