Having problems with your Samsung SL420 Digital Camera ?
It will not charge - Samsung SL420 Digital Camera
I have the exact camera, when you plug it in does the USB cable show red? If so this means the cable and the battery are connected and the red is a charging status. If you can turn on the camera while it's plugged in then its not the cord or the camera but the battery. If it just fails to charge but does power up and connect via USB i would look into a new bettery. If the USB cable does NOT respond at all when plugged into the PC by itself then the cable is bad and you need a new one. It will flash red/green/yellow if it's 100% functional. If your cable does respond but does nothing when the camera is plugged in then it may also be the cable's connections or the camera's internal port has been damaged. If you want to make sure it is the battery then plug in your cable, wait for it to cycle through the colors and connect your camera WITHOUT the battery inserted. It should do nothing, then while its connected to the cable insert the battery, If the cable turns red but will not charge then it's 95% a battery issue.

I have an SL620 Samsung Digital camera, when I try to take pictures I can't due to it saying card locked. I have taken the memory card out, re-charged, cleaned and looked at the manual for this camera. I can not find anything on how to deactivate this. I do not have a switch next to my camera or memory chip to switch over. I read the suggestion on flipping the switch I do not have one. I have no switch on any part of my camera just all the buttons for mamory etc. please help I am very frustrated
Look at the memory card itself. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper ... Samsung SL620 Digital Camera
