Question about Samsung Digimax D53 Digital Camera

My camera won't turn on!

For the past couple of months, my camera has not been turning on. I've tried numerous pairs of new batteries, but they aren't doing anything! I have no idea what could be wrong, and I have taken no steps in trying to solve this problem myself.

    I could turn my camera on and it would make a beeping sound then go off so i sent it in to be repaired and they said that it was sand, water, and dust damaged but now i see it is just the camera. Everybody here has the same exact problem how funny!!!

    Well mine turns on for a couple seconds then turns off again

    I have the same problem, my camera eats batteries, I can use it for 5 minutes and then have to replace the batteries, or it will flash on and then off again. The lense has also occasionally stuck open.

    I used to have a problem with my camera. I agree with the other suggested solution - switch to lithium batteries. My camera has had no problems since then and the batteries last for a pretty long time. I used Energizer e2 Lithium batteries and they work great!

Here in my side...

I do suggest that you have to set the correct battery settings in the camera...

Advised to set the correct battery type.
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see BATTERY TYPE
- Select ALKALINE if you're using NON-RECHARGEABLE
- Select Ni-MH if you're using RECHARGEABLE
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved

For other camera you just have to go to setup... and look for battery type...

Yes yes yes i think i have solved the problem with s1065 (if your camera lens is stuck on open and makes a bleeping noise-then read on ) its not the battery's it seams the lens motor is a bit temperamental ...... grip lens as if you were opening a jar ,with the thumb and index finger gentle twist left and right with little pressure thus should solve you problems ......IT DID ON MY S1065 STEVE FROM MONTROSE SCOTLAND

Had this problem, then i looked at my lens it was still out and i noticed it was bent. Luckily for me a little muscle i popped it back right and now it works :D

Posted on Jan 29, 2008

Check the batteries...if they're alkaline, switch to lithium, that's what worked for me just a couple of days ago, I was having the exact same problem OR talk to your camera retailer, either way works.

Samsung Technical Support team. If a year or less or perhaps a little over old There may be a manufacture issue with this. If not and they are unable to help replace the camera there is no repair option that is economic

My Moultrie camera turns itself off. i have set it numerous times and when i go back to check it for pictures, the power is off. the batteries are showing 99% so its not the batteries??

Don't know what causes it, but I have 2 cams that are doing the same thing. Batteries are 95%. Don't know if has anything to do with cold weather. Haven't had this problem in the past.

Sony Cyber Shot, camera wont turn on

Try cleaning the connectors inside the battery compartment, top and bottom and then replace the rechargable batteries with disposable alkaline batteries and try again. If this works then the problem may be the rechargable battery pack.

Sony DSC-S650 ( 7.2 MP and 3x zoom) - Not working

I have the same camera and have had the same problem. The first time I had to change batteries I could not find lithium batteries and ended up trying alkaline batteries. I was only able to take 1 or 2 pictures before they would die and the camera would shut down. When I switched back to lithium batteries, everything worked fine. I hope this helps.

Camera won't turn on.

Mine had the same problem.  I consulted and it said to use rechargeable batteries only.  The entry claimed that alkaline batteries, even if they're brand new, don't have sufficient power for more than a few pictures and may not even be powerful enough to turn the camera on.  I was dubious, but I tried putting in a pair of fully charged rechargeables and, by Gum, the camera was suddenly working again.  So before junking the camera, try investing 20 bucks in a battery charger and a pair of AA rechargeables and see if that fixes it.

Whats wrong

What kind of batteries are you using? I had this problem with a Samsung camera when using alkalines. It behaved much better with rechargeables or oxyride batteries.

Technical problem

I purchased a *ist DS used a couple of weeks ago, and it turns out to have similar problems. This camera seems very fussy about batteries. I am using rechargeable NiMh AAs. After about 30-40 exposures, the camera shows battery depleted. If I turn the camera off, then back on, it will show a charge - sometimes a full charge and will work for another 20 or so exposures. It can keep this up for a couple of days.

I read an explanation in one of the photo blogs (can't remember which) that suggested this was caused by one or two incompletely charged batteries in set of 4. If one is discharged the current from the others supposedly will flow to it, giving fluctuating power readings to the power management curcuit. This sounded plausible enough that I purchased a new charger yesterday which monitors the charge on each battery. Too early to tell whether this solved the problem or not. The other option is to switch to disposable batteries.
