The most prevalent complaint on that camera is battery life.

The next time it happens, install fresh batteries and see it that fixes the problem.

If you are using AA Alkaline batteries, you should switch to AA NiMH rechargeable batteries.
You can buy AA NiMH batteries with a charger for around $15

First thing to do is reset the camera back to factory defaults.
Just in case you have inadvertently set something that is causing the problem.

For Reset - see page 37 of the User Manual.

If you still get the failure, there is nothing you can fix.

You could contact Samsung about repairing the camera.
If they want more than $100, you should consider trashing the camera and buy a new one.
