Kyocera finecam S3R not working

Hi there, I have two year old kyocera finecam S3R. It's lense and the flash light are not going back inside. And because of that it's not starting also. Even after replacing the old batteries with new ones it's not working. Any idea what can be wrong? Thanks. Ashish.

    Have same problem as Ashish - Kyocera Finecam won't pack itself away or turn on. Not a battery problem.

    i also have the same with that kyocera S3R camera. the flas and the lens wont go back and it cant be turn on.

    It crashed while in use, leaving the lens extended and flash lid up.

    When I try to power up, the top flash indicator flickers for a split second followed by a half second 'critical bleep' and then the welcome display flashes on for perhaps a tenth of a second.

Won't power up upon pressing on button, flash won't retract, neither will lens. batteries are charged but old

Due to the tight tolerances inside the lense mechanism - small bits of sand or lint may become trapped in the mechanics.

It is advised to take the camera to a camera repair shop and have it disassembled and cleaned.

There are many small parts and intricacies that will render it totally useless if not done properly.

Kyocera M410 resets date and time when changing batteries

There are tiny Li batteries to maintain the short term memory for interim period. Normally they last very long but unexpected can be expected. You may not have enough tools to open it & reach there. Either go to camera repair or just entering it everytime or give it to the kids & buy new one instead of repair..

I have just bought a 8GB Panasonic memory chip for my Kyocera Finecam M410R camera. But it comes up with card error on it. I put back my little old 124mg card and it is fine. Can I use a panasonic card...

The brand isn't important. The 8GB card is an SDHC(secure digital high capacity) card and the smaller one is an SD. Your camera may not be able to use an SDHC card. Try formatting it in the camera before giving up on it.

Lost the driver cd rom for instilled the picture on pc

Kyocera does not list the S3X, but the driver software listed for the S3R will probably work for you. NOTE: according to the site, the driver is only needed for Windows 98 and 98SE. Windows 2000, Me, and XP are plug and play (no software needed). Vista and Windows 7 may or may not be supported. You can download the driver here:

Problem in the camera

The Kyocera web site tech support, will have that information Manually pulling and pushing a stuck zoom lens will run it, It is a very delicate mechanism, and there will be no service option if it is broken.
