Question about Samsung Maxima Zoom 70GL 35mm Point and Shoot Camera
When I try to load a new roll of film I get "E" flashing on the little screen and then it shuts off. I have used this camera hundreds of times with no problem, but now can't get it to do a thing.

I am Judy Malone in Tenn and I had my camera all in box and ready to mail back to place listed on camera box. I had worked on camera for last few days and to no avail. I got the notice via email today and the usual steps that I've read before.
To take batteries out, insert again. And to hold the ON button to keep camera powered. Then press Center button OK and press RIGHT 3 times to Setup2...
Well, I could not get my camera to co-operate past the Press Right 3 times to setup 2. Only the usual screen with a few of the icons showing my battery had power. It would not do anything past this.
Well, I got mad...(smile) and figured something had to be wrong as it kept showing a 32 for picts and I knew I had taken 414 at least on my Lexar 512 MB (SD).
I thought something must not be aleigned properly..some pins inside or somthing, so I GENTLE tapped the camera against my kitchen table... First one side, then the other..and GUESS WHAT. My camera came to life and has been working fine since. I HOPE this is a permanent fix...as I love the camera and have said so.
So, for what it's worth...try this if everything else seems to fail...but please do it gently. And start from the beginning.
Take batteries out, then reinsert...and GOOD LUCK.
I will post again...and let you know if this continues to work.
I am amazed.
