Digimax A503 will not turn on

Hello, I have had this camera since Christmas 2006 (5 months) and yesterday wanted to take some pictures but the camera would not turn on. I changed the batteries and all that happens is the green LED light comes on for about a second and then goes back off. I have tried this several times and do not know what else to do. Any ideas????? Thanks, DY

    Exact same problem. Bought it a year ago and now it will not turn on at all no matter what batteries I put in it. I have no reciept so taking it back to K Mart is not an option.

    The same problem happened to my camera. I was using rechargable batteries for a majority of the camera's life, and then the other day when I changed to batteries to regular alkelines, the camera wont do anything more than turn on it's green light. Is there a solution?

Digimax A503 going into AUTO mode and running down BRAND NEW BATTERIES before they can be used

Attempt to restore camera electronics to factory defaults. If you cannot do so, contact Samsung tech support for assistance/input. If they cannot help they you have a dilemma/ replace or repair? But if not an expensive camera the choice is clear.

I need help with my samsung digimax a503 i have brand new alkiline batteries in...

Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.
