    Have a Samsung S730, used to work fine. Suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason - when I turn it on, it comes on for a second, and then shuts off. Tried brand new batteries - didn't help. Frustrated!!

    I have pretty much the same problem. It sometimes won't turn on at all and when it does and I push the button to take a picture it turns off!

I try to turn on my camera and the lens comes out but then goes right back in and beeps as if the batteries are low but I know they aren't. I can still view the pictures I have already taken by pressing...


i know its sounds odd but yes the charge on the batteries (Voltage/Amps) is falling short for the camera to start as it takes more power to run the camera than to just preview your pictures

one suggestion i can give here is
(this could be potentially hezardous so tread caution)
if you have rechargale batts then try electro jump to them take any source which is roughly 2-3times the voltage of the batteries (eg: if the batt voltage is 1.25 volts take a 3-5volts source) and connect the +ve wire to the +ve and -ve wire to the -ve of the battery and hold for 10 to 15 secs and then immediatly place it for charging and let them fill charge and use them till the batteries are completely drained
repeat this cycle for 2 -3 times and batteries will come back to life

be careful to connect the wires correctly else they might destroy the batts also not to hold for more than 10-15 secs

pls rate if this was any help

Samsung L730 wont extend lens and dosent turn on right

Try removing the batteries and memory card. Let the camera set for awhile. Put the batteries back in but not the memory card, restart the camera. Does it work know? If it does, turn the camera off put the memory card back in. Turn the camera on, does it work now? If it doesn't, replace the memory card.

Hi Pexxva,

I know this might sound crazy, but I want you to re-install the software. Yeah, that's right. Reinstall the software. Then restart your computer. Now try to go to uninstall programs and it will work.

Thanks for coming to FixYa. If you have anymore questions, you can leave me a comment. I'll check back to make sure you're ok.

Camera not turning on any more, can't put the memory card back in

Make sure you are putting the card back in the correct way - usually a little symbol to help you on the inside of the card chamber cover or see your manual. Check also that no foreign body has got into the card chamber Come back when you have checked this out.
