Question about Samsung Digimax A7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Menu function not working

We've had this camera for over a year and use it fairly regularly but we use it more lately as we get more comfortable with it. Decided to try some more advanced features instead of just point and shoot but all of these are accessed through the MENU button. I can change modes on the top wheel from AUTO to SCENE or movies, etc. but I can't access the MENU functions or use the LCD or ASM buttons. Everything else seems to function fine. We take pics, download, and delete. We just came back from vacation and several hundred shots just fine but I can't get menu to work. I know it did once because I set the image size when we first got it. Could I have turned this button off at some point? Can I reboot the camera? I have read through the manual and have tried removing the batteries and reinserting them. Samsung's website takes me to a nonexistent website when I try to contact them for help. Is this thing dead?

Take the battery out for while and replace it, to see if it 'resets'. If it does not then there is something you are missing- check the software Cd- there is usually a more detailed manual in PDF format. Failing that perhaps it is sick- a repair would not be a economical thing I guess.

Hearthrite Radiant heater HR30EN-1 The heater has been setting for about 2 years. It works in the manual setting with the battery, but does nothing when plugged in and turned to electronic.

Peggy, I hope that you thoroughly cleaned the heater inside and out, before firing it up after it has set for 2 years. If you didn't, more than likely, that's the problem. Not using it regularly does it more harm than using it constantly. That's because, while it was sitting for 2 years gathering dust, spiders went in it and may have built nests. These nests clog things up.

If after you've cleaned it and it still doesn't work in electronic mode, contact Empire Comfort Systems, Technical Service Dept 800-851-3153, for further advice. They are good folks to work with.

Hope this helps you to start troubleshooting the problem.

My functions no longer work on the zr850 I recently ran a mini dv cleaner and changed the cr1616 and charged it and it still no longer works to take movies on camera and the function menu on camera won't...

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Viewfinder and lcd non functioning

I like the XL2. It's a great camera.

The first thing that comes to mind is the connections between the viewfinder and the camera. This is going to involve some electronic troubleshooting. If you're not comfortable with modern electronics then this can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively.

Hi, i have problem with my z650 , i`ve had bought lately new sd card (high capacity) and camera just doesnt detect that. Can i do anything or i just have to buy some specific old type one? thanks. Seb

Your camera is incompatible with SDHC cards.

As it's a hardware incompatibility your only fix is to get a regular SD card. Although you may be able to find one up to the maximum 4GB, stick to a maximum of 2GB as most SD compliant devices were never actually tested with 4GB cards and so they often don't work.
