Having problems with your Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera ?

Samsung S630 Camera

\015 Hi. \015\012\015\012We were given the advice below by FixYa:\015\012\015\012Avoid the three main power drains in a digital camera: power cycling, unnecessary flash, and excessive LCD (liquid-crystal display) use. A camera uses power each time it initializes or shuts down, so avoid cycling the camera on and off between shots; you should only turn the camera off when you finish taking pictures. \015\012\015\012Also, because it takes energy to use a flash, turn this component off in daylight or high-light areas. Even if your camera doesn\342\200\231t fire the flash, it takes energy to keep the flash charged. \015\012In addition, the color LCDs used on digital cameras can demand a lot of power (especially if the camera is left on for a prolonged period), so turn off the LCD and use the optical viewfinder rather than the LCD to frame the snapshot. Plus, make sure you only use the LCD sparingly to review your snapshots. \015\012\015\012If you haven\342\200\231t purchased a camera yet, choose one that uses common (low-cost) alkaline batteries rather than the more expensive lithium cells. Most cameras that operate on AA or AAA batteries also will accept rechargeable batteries, which may cost more initially but can easily pay for themselves in the long run. Of course, always refer to a camera\342\200\231s manual for specific operating suggestions and precautions. \015\012\015\012However, we have already purchased the Samsung S630 camera and have found that alkaline AA 1.5v batteries (including the ones provided with the camera) only last 4 or 5 photos before the camera shuts down, with or without the flash.\015\012We are therefore wondering whether there is a standard type/make of battery we are supposed to be using with this model, or whether the camera itself is faulty?\015\012\015\012Or better still should be return the camera back to the suppliers and get a refund?\015\012\015\012Look forward to hearing from you\015\012\015\012\015

Hi, you may have seem my postings on other Samsung bogs, but this is my update. My little red S630 keeps on ticking and has not had one problem with the blings, beeps and shutting down SINCE I tapped the camera lightly on both sides--but not top or bottom--of camera. Apparently this made things go back in alignment. And I also wiggled the lens as the lens was stuck and not retract. I had bought the camera in Aug 07 and it had taken great picts and was so easy to use..until the shut down with beeps/blings.
\015\012 I am reporting that here today, this March 19th, the camera is still going strong and I have had it out on the farm here in Tenn and in snow and cold weather and it stilll works! It went from being super sensitive to a very durable camera. And i just throw it in my purse or backpack. No case or extra protection. And my four year old granddaughter uses it also.
\015\012 My camera also had all the problems that everyone has mentioned--and saying card full when I had only taken a few shots or batteries already used up when they were new and I had just inserted them.
\015\012 I use the very basic Kodak rechargable batteries and get plenty shots. And even when it says low battery, if I shut the camera down and wait a few minutes, and turn it back on, I can get many more shots. I have a total of FOUR batteries...two in the camera and two that I keep charged up and always with me.
\015\012That way, I never have to worry abt the dreaded camera shut down when some important shot comes up. The 15.00 or 20.00 dollars (can't remember exact price) I paid for the Kodak battery recharger with the batteries has paid for itself many times over. The regular batteries were going to cost me a fortune at the rate I was going thru them.
\015\012 I have also tried going back to regular batteries and I found the Energizer batteries works fine. So, it is nice to know I can use them if I find myself in some situtaion where they are the only batteries available.
\015\012 I did what the others suggested also. I have the things turned off that I don't need or rarely use. I don't have the sound on and I don't keep the LCD on. I shoot in 1mp most of time which is all I need for my purposes--granddaughter and my dogs-- and they email very easy.
\015\012 I still wish that Samsung would address this problem and make it known what the solution is. If our solution of getting it back in aligment is the answer, how much better it would be if they would make this known rather than have many many folks buy camera and only give up on it and then give it negative remarks. I see the comments on almost every site I go to that mentions the Samsung cameras.
\015\012 It is really a great camera for the price, but it has to work. I am curious by nature and just did not want to let the camera problem defeat me!
\015\012 Hope this helps and hope you will post back later.
