Question about Samsung NV3 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Won't charge!! I've had my NV3 for awhile and never had any problems with it. I was downloading and Photoshopping some pictures this morning for quite some time and must have left the camera on until the battery completely drained. This afternoon, I tried to turn it on and it wouldn't work. I plugged it in for a couple of hours, still won't power up. I've taken the battery out, reinserted it, tried the plug in the computer's USB and using it with the travel charger. I see the charger flash 3 different colors, then nothing. HELP PLEASE!!!

    I bought a NV3 about a year ago, couple of months just after the warranty expired, and my camera won't power up anymore. Tried charging the batteries (I have 2 rechargeable batteries) but the light first turned green, then red, and then orange (blinking). What are the odds for 2 batteries to go dead at the same time? Then I sent my camera to the service center, and they told me that the 'motherboard' is not functioning anymore. A replacement motherboard would cost around USD250. Could've get a new camera with this money. The service center probably don't know how to fix it...

    exactly the same thing has happened to me! I have used and loved my camera for months now, and when I went to turn it on one day, it wouldn't. I went home and tried to charge it, but the charger just flashed orange, read user manual and it said "charging error" but doesn't explain how to fix it. I then decided my next best option was to buy a new battery, so I did. However, when I tried to charge this in the camera, once again the orange blinking light reared its ugly head...!! Somebody help please...

Hey ppl, my camera has just doen the same, it wont charge although it works completely fine in all other cases. Ive had it just over a year. Has anyone tried using a new cable? Or is it defintely the camera thats the problem? Either was a simple solution is to buy a charger for the battery itself, one thats independant of the camera. Its not as convienient, as you need to remove the battery and place it in a stand to charge, but it does solve the problem :-D They cost about £10.

Importing pictures


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Hi, I have a Samsung NV3 camera, I have installed a new 4 GB memory card but it is showing memory full. Is there and internal memory on the camera that is full that requires deleting? many thanks


I've tried to download a manual for this camera to give you the most accurate answer possible, however after a few minutes of frustration I'm going to answer this sort of "off the top of my head so to speak" My first impression is that the 4GB memory card my be beyond your cameras capabilities but first try this. Have you checked the memory card to make sure it's not locked I'll include a diagram check the small circle for the correct orientation the arrow shows the lock position.

Once you have made sure the card is unlocked install the memory card and then format the card. Formatting "programs and new card to work with the camera it has been installed into. Also Formatting should be done after each download of pictures to the computer hard drive. In this case formatting cleanse the old pictures off and programs the card once again to give optimum performance between the camera and memory card. If this still doesn't work then I suspect the 4GB card is to large for the camera "firmware and you will need to update your camera on the Samsung web site to a newer version of firmware. Sounds complicated but heck i did it so it's not all that technical. Also the memory card you are replacing may only need to be formatted to begin to work properly again (that's if you were having problems)

My samsung NV3 camera takes great videos but I can't play them on my PC. The error message say Codec isn't installed. Then I hear the audio, but the video is just windows randomizations.


It's because that camera records video in MPEG-4 format. I believe the easiest solution is to download the free quick time player and play your videos on that. Just Google quick time player.

Magnavox model 50ML8105D/17 shuts down after only a few seconds and overheat and lamp failure lights come on , I`ve replaced the lamp , but the problem still occurs


We reduced the picture size to 4:3 and was able to get quite a bit more life out of the lamp, without it shutting down. It does take awhile to get use to. But is much better than a dust catcher
