Having problems with your Samsung Digimax L80 Digital Camera ?

I switched on my Samsung L80, but the lens doesn't extend, my camera bleeps and the led is off. I did buy a new battery, but the problem is still present.

Answers :

It is not a battery problem. It is problem related to the lens motor and or lens gears. Something is preventing the lens from extending and the camera is shutting itself down to preven breaking the lens. This one needs to be serviced by a qualified camera tech. You may have to send it off to samsung. Let me know if you want the contact info for your country/state.

I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is happenng to my Powershot - which uses ordinary AA-batteries. Both cameras still take very good pictures - but a retailer told me that this is what happens to digital cameras after a while. Do i really have to by a new one every 3.rd year - or have anyone any suggestions?

A new battery, properly charged by me, the camera takes between 1 and 5 photos and then the camera goes dead.

Bad Battery My DIgimax 530 has had battery problems for some time now. I know that this problem has not been like this forever. When I put a new battery in, it uses it quite quickly, then says low battery. The only problem is, when I test the batteries with my battery tester, it says that they are partially full (still in the "good" zone). I am just a kid and don't have much money, I use it for the video feature. It's warranty has timed out, Is there a simple solution?

I hit the power button and it turns green for a second but then goes out. The camera and LCD screen do nothing. So I have some sort of power problem. When I put the battery in the charger the charger light comes on for about a 10seconds but then goes out (suggesting that the battery is fully charged). Is this a battery problem (not charging or holding a charge) or a camera problem? I don't want to buy a new battery if the camera itself is dead... Thanks!

Olympus e10 problem. Even with new batteries, could only take a couple of shots before the low battery icon came up & camera shut down. Would work fine using mains supply. Fixed by buying new battery holder. Now 3 weeks later doesn't work again - low battery then switch off both using batteries or mains power supply. Any ideas appreciated as it's a great camera when working. Thanks

I have a JVC Everio HDD camcorder, model number gz-mg330rex which is approx 2 years old. The camera has had little use, been well looked after and carefully stored.
