Samsung L100 Digital Camera Problem

I have a Samsung L100. I've only had it for 3 months and just yesteray, when I was trying to turn it on. It'd turn on, then the screen would go blank and it'd beep three times and shut off.
Can anyone help me out?

    I have the samsung l100 and I haven't had it long at all, but long enough to not be able to return it. (go figure) It doesn't turn on all the time and when it does I'll try to take a picture and it'll turn off. Battery is fully charged. Also when I try to put it on the charger when I need to charge it the lite turns yellow and shuts off. Why????

Ive charged it but still nothing. The lens is still stuck out and the only way to get the power off is to take the battery out.

    I've had my camera about 8 months or so. Every once in a while, it'll get jammed *the lens will* & it wont work for days. Today, I was using it. Turned it off for a whle, went to ues it again & it wouldnt turn on, the power light was on & three beeps came out of my camera! It wont turn off until I take the battery out. Nothing on it will work & it wasnt dropped or anything. My camera lens wont even pop out!

    This is the 3rd one that was replaced by the store and still doesn't work. When I hit the power the blue light comes on and then it beeps three times. But the camera still doesn't come on. It also seems as though its charged but then when u plug it in the color changes.

Right as the lens comes out very quickly remove the battery before the lens slides back inand beeps three times, wait a second put the battery back in and switch on obviously let the lens go back in and hay presto itshould work, it worked a treat for my L100, i hope this helps some of you but its obvious to us all our camera's are ****.

Turn the camera on then off. Turn the camera on, and while the camera is still on take out the battery and memory card. Put both back in and change the settings turn the wheel all the way around back to auto. try to take a picture. turn the camera off then on again. worked for me.

Dont know how to turn flash off on a samsung l100 camera.

Press the button with the lightning bolt icon and watch the screen. When you see a lightning bolt with a line through it, the flash is off.

My Samsung won't turn on :(

Try to move the lens a bit or straighten it out, that usually works when it makes the three beep sounds.

Card error on L100 samsung camera, help please.

copy all the pictures/files saved in your memory card to your PC then format the card, you can format the card by going to MENU > SET UP > FORMAT

make sure that you have a copy of the files in the memory card because formatting the memory card will erase all the files that are saved in it.

I have a samsung L100 digital camera. the battery had to be recharged but the lens cover only partially closed at the time that it shut down. I tried to recharge the battery, when I turn on the power...

The battery was tested and showed to be fine. The camera just malfunctioned during the shutdown. The used battery was put into a new camera and it's been fine.
