Having problems with your Samsung Digimax S730 Digital Camera ?

Camera or cell problem??

\015 Hi!! I have a Samsung S730 camera..it works on rechargable AA cells. The problem is..the camera always shows "low battery" how much ever i charge the cell!! And wonderfully. the cell works when i use it with the TV remote!! Is that a camera or a cell problem??\015

Answers :

A tv remote needs an extremely low amount of power. In fact, many people save the batteries from other devices when they stop working and place them in their remotes. Questions to ask yourself...are the batteries old?....have they been recharged many, many times?...have I accidentally allowed them to completely discharge?...have I cleaned the battery contacts in the camera and the batteries themselves with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol?

You've subjected the card to two different operating systems. You need to decide on one. If it's the camera, then download any pics you want to save from the card...then with the card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on- ...

I bought a battery charger with two NI-MH cells. After charging it is not being able to open the camera. Now I am in a doubt what should I do now. There is no service centre here in Kolkata. I talked with experts. They told this may be a problem of the battery. Is it possible with the new batteries. I am confused. Kindly suggest.


I have bought new batteries which would not charge up. It is possible.Does the camera operate with other batteries? Can you check whether the NiMH batteries work in something else (perhaps a flashlight or torch)? ... Sanyo Digital Cameras

Hi, I have two Cannon 40D Cameras and am experiencing problems with both at the moment. One Camera is very slow after pushing the button to take a photo. I have checked all of the batteries and this is not the problem. The other camera will take 4/5 shots without a problem then as I am taking the shot I feel like the camera flutters, the lcd screen shows an error symbol and says the contacts between the lens needs cleaning. When I turn the camera on and off it fixes the problem temporarily but i

3 times i've the same problem with my camera, 3 times they've sent it back. The problem still exists. A new battery, properly charged by me, the camera takes between 1 and 5 photos and then the camera goes dead. I was told by Canon that the battery lid on the camera was causing a short, they said 'Problem solved.' Nope, the problem is still there and i've run out of extended warranty. Please, please help.

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....


Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

When I view my card in the camera, I see all my photos. When I go to down load them using different programs, besides Kodak, it shows that some of the photo are "drawing failed". Is the problem with my camera or my memory card? Also be advised that when I first got the camera (about 7 months ago), I never had any problems. This type of problem has occurred within the past two months. That is why I am not sure if it's the camera or card.


It's much more likely to be the card than the camera, but it could be either.Try removing all of the files from the card, then reformatting it. Using an external card reader to reformat would be preferable, because it removes the camera ... Kodak Easyshare Z812-IS Digital Zoom Digital Camera

File error very so often after clicking a few photographs the camera shows FILE ERROR . On the first review the camera displays the photograph there after the photos are lost. the only solution to the problem is to format the memory card after which it clicks a few photographs & then the same problem occurs. is it the problem of memory card or a problem with the camera


It could be either. There is not any way to tell, but if the problem is too bad I would replace the memory card first and then address the issue within the camera if it continues.\015\012\015\012David Millier\015\012Advance Camera Repair ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera

Camera stalling The problems started after using my camera on a windy day at the beach 3weeks ago. After a few days, the lens started getting stuck, and wouldn't come out, or if it did, didn't focus properly. This problem was intermittent. Then, in the past several days, the camera systems stall when I switch it on. The lens comes out and zooms fully. but It will not respond to any of the control buttons.

Lens Problem I just bought an Olympus C-8080. While switching the camera on there are some 4 to 5 light pixels on the display (lcd monitor on the back of the camera), even when directing the camera into the dark. It is not really a problem now, but do you also have this problem with your LCD monitor? What if they become more?


Dead pixels are a nightmare of every LCD screen. There is no way to avoid them - you can just hope they never happen to you. There is no pattern to how they appear and when, but the ones you have will stay for ever. If they bother you right now, send ... Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

Battery Problem I bought a Nikon Coolpix L12 Digital Camera this past summer and have had no problem until last night. My camera turned off and said "battery exhausted."

My fujifilm E550 digital camera has a problem where the cilyndrical piece in front that usually moves in/out is stuck half way (won't go back inside) and the camera will not take pictures.

My touch screen of samsung ST550 camera isn't working. I cant switch on the dual screen because the button on the bottom left isn't working. I was just taking some pictures of water and a very little bit of water splashed into my camera. I wiped the water off and that's when the problem started. How should i fix the problem? I dont think the water created the problem because the amount of water which splashed into my camera was very small. Thank you.

My NIkon D70s has colored streaks and grainy pixels throughout all of my photos. This happened a few times intermittently and cleared by turning the camera on and off. It is now worse and doing it on every photo. Turning the camera off no longer clears the problem. I have tried different lenses and the problem is consistent with all of them so it is specific to the camera itself. I have reset the menu but the problem still persists.

I have continuously had battery problems with my Nikon CoolPix L18; after shipping back to Nikon I was informed that there was not a problem. I have since purchased another L18 for my Mom thinking that it could not be a manufacturer problem - however, now we have two cameras that will not hold a battery charge for more than a few pics - literally I had less than an hour of pics on my camera.

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!

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off. Now the camera doesn't open fully and when pusing the "play" button the power goes on and off straight away. At first I thought this was a problem with the battery so I have fully charged the battery and the problem is still the same. What do I need to do to correct the problem? Thanks
