Digimax s500 cutting off

Mine does the same thing. I put in fresh batteries, turn it on, it shows full battery power but then after 2-3 seconds it beeps 3 times then shuts off.

One quick thing to try would be to use a different SD card, I can see a scenario in which the camera tries to start up - sees a invalid card or a improper format and fails.
Otherwise...try plugging it in your computer via USB. or to another power outlet using a compatible power cable. If it starts and allows you to access the menu, try a factory reset and then try using the battery power again.
Sometimes cameras are very picky about the "Type" of battery they use - there are several. Try a lithium set, or try a NiMH set - just don't mix them.

No picture on screen after 1 second

Try this. Go to your tools menu, look for something like power saver or display off and change the duration that the screen stays on.

My camera doesn't turn on at all

It is not turning on maybe it was exposed to extreme temperature that is why it's acting up that way.

First thing to try is to do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Return batteries
- Turn on camera

Make sure to use fresh batteries:

Alkaline batteries (Non-rechargeable) or
Nickel-metal Hydride [Ni-MH] (Rechargeable)

Once your camera turned on, kindly set the battery type option of it properly so there is proper connection between batteries and camera.

To set the battery type:
- Put batteries
- Turn on camera
- Press MENU button
- Scroll to the right until you see SETUP
- Keep on scrolling down until you are in BATTERY TYPE
- Press right button for you to see 2 options like Alkaline or Ni-MH
- Select the batteries you are currently using
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Get out of those by keeping on pressing MENU
- Turn off camera for 10 seconds for settings to be refreshed
- Turn it on and take pictures

* If it still does not work, send the camera for repair.

Call the hotline of your camera's manufacturer so
they could provide with how you could safely send your camera.

Use lithium batteries. I had a problem when our camera would turn on for a few seconds, beep 3 times, and then shut off. The best batteries, which are actually recomended for this camera is the lithium batteries. I strongly suggest them.
