Batter Life We purchased a Samsung S630 camera from you a while ago, but have found that alkaline AA 1.5v batteries only last a few photos before they run down. We're therefore wondering whether you have any suggestions on which type/make of battery is best to use with this model, or is there any other way of avoiding this?
This isn't a solution but is a confirmation. Battery life in this camera is terrrible, especially with alkaline batteries. The rechargable NiMh batteries do better, but even there life is substandard. When setting up the camera on the munus, you h ... Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

My Samsung S730 says "low battery" and turns itself off immediately. I know that my batteries are fully charged and I have tried four different sets of batteries. Each time, it says the batteries are low and turns itself off. What can I do to fix it? This camera goes through very light usage (probably have only ever taken 200 pictures with it) and is in perfect condition. How can it be broken?

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

I have a samsung digimax A402 camera. I have never had a problem with it powering on until now. I have placed brand new double A batteries and when I press the power button on the camera the screen tells me my battery is low and the camera powers off.
