Question about Samsung Digimax S600 Digital Camera
When i turn on my camera, i see a bright white screen, the lens still opens, i can still take pictures and view on computer, but NOTHING is on my screen. i tried playing with buttons over and over, i hear beeps, like its going through all the menus, but i still cant see anyything, from what i can tell everything else seems to be working. help!
Same problem with an HP R817, not fixed by tapping / banging it etc.
Figuring I had nothing to lose I removed the back of the camera to get to the LCD, which is a simple job on the R817 - seven obvious screws.
Once open, prod / squeeze the ribbon connector and LCD frame where it enters the LCD, that'll be your most likely problem area. I padded mine with a small strip of plastic and now have a working camera again.

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.

okay.... Try this if lens is stuck out... look at the side profile of the lens... you should notice the it is not even.. the lens is probably stuck at a slight angle.. GENTLY force the lens to where it looks even... should fix the problem.... worked for me.

Same thing happened to me. All I saw was a white screen. So I took apart the back to have a look. I used http://www.lifepixel.com/ir-tutorials/fujifilm-s3-pro-digital-infrared-conversion-instructions.htm as a ref. I took the LCD screen out and put it back. The cable was not connected properly. Now It Works Great.
Hope this helps

Every time I'd try to turn my camera on, it would give three beeps and then go off.
I decided to search your Fixya tips, and I found it. All I needed to do was press and Hold the OK/Menu button while I turned on my Samsung S630 camera and it worked!!!!!!
Thanks for the tip, and I hope Someone else will get the same benefit
The view screan on my Samsung S630 camera is all white looking and blurry! The photos that I take look the same.
Any tips will be most appreciated.
