Having problems with your Samsung Digimax i5 Digital Camera ?

Batter problem? Hi the battery is fully charged, but when I turn the camera on, it stays on for a few seconds, and then automatically shuts off. Do you have any idea what I can do?


Answers :

I hate to tell you this, but you may have charged the battery so much that it doesn't hold a charge anymore.

You should either try to get a new battery for it or maybe make sure you have the right kind of battery installed.

Good Luck!
Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Depending on the length of service, it may be time to replace the rechargeable batteries. It is possible that the batteries wold accept the charge but thereafter not able to retain it, hence your described condition.

In some instances of removable batteries, it may be necessary to clean/scrape the battery contacts of the camera. They tend to have corrosion after some time and it would help to expose fresh metal. Additionally, you could also try to bend/stretch these contacts so as to exert more pressure on the battery terminals.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
