Question about Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera
WE HAVE FRESH EXPENSIVE BATTERIES IN THE CAMERA AND WHEN WE TRY TO TURN IT ON IT JUST BEEPS A FEW TIMES AND WON'T TURN ON...............HELP?????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've only had the camera for about 3 months before it started having the problem of beeping 3 times and shutting off. the lense is stuck out of place, and won't return. No one at samsung have been able to offer any real assistance. I want my camera back. please help!!
Cameras belonging to the S Series really do have a battery type option that needs to be set up first for proper power connection.
Recommended batteries are just:
- Alkaline (Non-rechargeable)
- Nickel-metal Hydride (Rechargeable)
Just the proper battery type by:
- Pressing MENU/OK button
- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Keep on scrolling down and look for battery type
- Press the right button to pick up on 2 options
like Alkaline and Ni-MH
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Keep pressing MENU/OK to get out of the MENU
Once, it's done, camera needs to be turned off for a few seconds
so that settings made will be refreshed with the camera.
As you turn camera on, you're now ready to take many pictures.
ALKALINE (Non-rechargeable) batteries when set to the correct battery type will really take a maximum of 100 pictures.
For the Rechargeable batteries (Ni-MH), when those are fully charged, and the battery type is set to Ni-MH, it will be taking more than a hundred of course.
I hope this help you a lot.
For the lens problem you can try the below method:
Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on.
Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.
Fix #3: Insert the cameras AV cable, and turn the camera on in picture review mode. Have no idea why this would work, except that quite a few people have reported some success with it.
Fix #4: Place the camera flat on its back on the kitchen table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum cleaner.
Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. Take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables.
Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. Many people have also reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include pulling, pushing, rotating or twisting on the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the lens barrel side that has the largest gap. While doing these, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.
