Question about Samsung Digimax D53 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My camera will not work

I have used my camera 3 x's since I have had it since last Christmas. When I got it out this year for Christmas to take pictures. It took 1 picture and then it did not work again. We have changed the batteries, but it will stil not work. The lens will not longer go in or out. It just beeps when you turn it on and screen will not come on. I have no receipt and Walmart will not exchange.

    I still need my camera fixed, but why should I pay to get it fixed when I only used it 3 x's before and it's not working. I can go buy another cmera from another dealer if Samsung can not help me and I will let Walmart know that you do not get good assistance with Samsung plus they try to charge you for everything. This camera is not working and its not right that they should not stand behind their products.

    I pulled out my Samsung Digimax D53 to take some pictures of the snow here in North Texas which is unusual. Pulled it out and only thing it would do was make a grinding noise and the lens would not extend. I haven't used my camera since Christmas 2007.

    I have the same problem. I tried to turn the power on and all it does is grin. The lense will not extend. I bought it al walmart as well and they will not take it back or exchange it. Samsung wants to charge me as well.

Try to put regular batteries in it to reset it and if it turn on shut it off and take out your SD card turn it back on and go to the menu screen and format it and then reset it, it should work after that if not all i can say to do is to send it in to sansung and have them fix it.

Nikon Coolpix L110 camera was bought for me for Christmas 2010. Worked fine at first, but now seems to be having problems. Batteries don't last. I just bought new batteries in Feb/March this year...

You have to charge the batteries for nearly 8-10 hours. Brand new batteries also require a full recharge of 8-10 hours.Not only making sure the batteries are charged, have you changed the battery in the menu under type of batteries.

Take a look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

It seems there is some where inside the camera leakage.. Are you using Li-ion rechargeable batteries or AA batteries For previously cameras, always comes with AA batteries, and most of the battery are with low capacity.

When i leave a video on Facebook it isn't fully clear like other videos i see, what can i do? i got it for christmas last year

What camera are you using because if it is the camera on your macbook then it is because webcams are almost always 1.3 to 2.0 MP. When a decent camera is at the very least 3.2 MP, but your problem could also be because the room is not well lit.

My mum brought me a camera last year for christmas and the charger won't charge my camera battery. We can't find the recipt, will we still be able to use the warranty

I don't think you will get far on the warranty without a receipt. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever, anyway, so they might not be covered under a warranty.

The good news is you can buy replacement batteries and chargers for most cameras very cheaply. You don't say what the make and model of your camera is, but what I would do is go to Amazon online and search on your model number and the word "battery".

Last year I bought my mom a digital camera for christmas. It worked great for about 2-3 months. Since then it is speratic, it will turn on let you take a couple of pictures then shuts down all by itsels....

Hi! Most digital cameras require outrageous amounts of power to work properly. Be sure to use only high quality, hi power ni-mh rechargeable batteries. Check for Sanyo Eneloop or Duracell. Sometimes we think the camera is broken, but in most cases is only insufficient amout of power. If you can't find the before mentioned batteries, look for 2500mA NI-MH type rechargeable batteries and a proper charger. Good luck!

My camera screen is broken!!!

It can be fixed, but I would be willing to bet that you would rather put the amount of money toward a new digital camera.  They are extremely inexpensive, especially for Christmas this year.   Splurge and get a second, new camera for yourself, and give the old broken screen one to someone who doesn't have a digital camera.
Good luck, and Merry Christmas!
