Lens,not close properly

Hi there i have an Samsung S600 and ive kept it in really good condition, but just recently, something had happened. I was about to use my camera, then i tried turning it on and i got three beeps.Then I looked at my lens and realized it wasnt properly closed like it should be, I've tried changing the batteries thinking it was that but it wasnt. Im in desperate need to fix this:(

    Same problem here. Switched off S600 after taking pics, switched on and now the lens refuses to close. Tried changing batteries, used blowing machine in case any invisible sand got in there but no luck. For the looks of it, this seems more and more like a manufacturing issue than a user issue......

The drive gear has been damaged and will need to be replaced.
If you cannot find a donor s600 try fuji finepix F460 or F470. the lens unit is virtually identical. Drive gear is interchangeable

If it is your camera's time to go, there is no helping that. Most likely a grain of sand has found it's way into your camera mech. You can turn your camera on and off while banging it on the counter gently, but it is unlikely you will succeed, due to most lens parts use a sticky lithium grease for lubricant.

Samsung Digimax S600 is stucked in off position


I've had this with a diff model of Samsumg (V10). The problem with mine was that the lens wasn't opening, which was causing the beeping. I held the camera with lens facing down and when I pressed the power button I lightly tapped the camera against the palm of my other hand. The lens extracted.

I have more problems with the lens now but that may have something to do with me dropping it later:(

JAMMED LENS


The track inside of the lens and maybe other damage has been done. This is something that you cannot do yourself, unless you are trained, have access to the parts, and experience in camera servicing.

You should send the camera to the manufacture authorized service rep for an estimate.

CLICKING NOISE


The clicking noise is the internal focus lens. The S500 and S600 are very succeptible to debris getting in the lens. Or, the focus lens was knocked out of alignment.

Samsung digimax D73 not turning on


i had the same problem, but it appeared, when my rechargeable batteries died.. it just friezed  while the lens was coming out. it came out abaout a half of it's length.. tried connecting to pc, different batteries, until pressed the lens a bit towards camera and then tried to pull it out a bit - and it came back again. It started to work. So I gues all of your problems has something to do with the lens.
