I have a samsung s1065 and when i try to switch it on the lens wont come out though the motor is trying i have installed new batteries


THE PROBLEM IS NOT OF THE BATTERIES. YOU MIGHT HAVE SWITCHED ON THE CAMERA AND SOMETHING MIGHT HAVE BLOCKED THE LENS WHILE IT WAS BEING PUSHED OUT. IN THIS CASE SOMETIMES THE GEARS SLIP OR GET DAMAGED .THIS MIGHT LOOK ODD BUT GIVE IT A TRY.WHILE SWITCHING ON THE CAMERA TRY TO PULL OUT THE LENS PHYSICALLY. THIS MANY A TIMES HAS SOLVED THE ISSUE. ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND NEVER TO BLOCK OR PUT PRESSURE ON THE LENS AS THE DELICATE GEARS MIGHT GET DAMAGED.

Samsung S1065 beeps 3 times and nothing else


If you have recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens tube (housing). This damage will prevent the lens from moving properly and will cause the camera to shut itself off after a few seconds. If the lens is damaged the camera will require professional repair. If the lens is not damaged, the problem may be battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Samsung s1065 beeps 3 times nothing else. only 6months old wont turn on. bought recommended batteries, still wont turn on


One of the 4 conditions a-batteries are inserted incorrectly b-batteries have died and need to be replaced c-you have selected the wrong battery type option on the Setup2 menu d-your camera is malfunctioning and needs servicing.

Memory


I had thesame problem when I bought my s1065, until I opened the battery compartment & found I had no memory card in, I went to Argus & bought one for £19 50p & now I can take as many photos as I like.

My camera won't turn on!


Here in my side...

I do suggest that you have to set the correct battery settings in the camera...

Advised to set the correct battery type.
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see BATTERY TYPE
- Select ALKALINE if you're using NON-RECHARGEABLE
- Select Ni-MH if you're using RECHARGEABLE
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved

For other camera you just have to go to setup... and look for battery type...
