I have a Samsung s500 and ever since I attached it to my PLaystation, when I try to turn it on it only comes up with a green light for a second then does nothing. This is only 2 days old. What should I do?

Re: Doesn't turn on

Customer support at Samsung it may be fixable under warranty- because I do not know what effect Play station would have on a camera.

When i try to take a photo it comes up with F 2.8 1/30 on the screen for Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera. How can I fix this?

When the camera refuses t make a picture, please try putting the main dial to the automatic setting. (most camera's do have that little green camera logo on the dial. Put it there. Then try again.
When you tried one of the manual settings or the scene settings, and the camera does not get enough light, it could be it refuses to take the picture. Same when it can't focus, because there is not enough contrast.

I have a samsung S500 and when I turn it on the lens doesn't open or extend and it will beep 3 times and shut off. I have tried new batteries and nothing works. I took it to a camera shop and they

Well, have you ever considered that the lenses MIGHT be defected? If it's true, you can send it back to the manufacturer, as long as it wasn't YOU who made it defected.
Another tip, is maybe the lens isn't made for that type of camera.
Lastly, the lens can just be broken, so you should carefully examine it, and see INSIDE of it, to make sure all of the parts are their. Hope this helps (:

Camera will not stay on.....

the 3 beeping sound means that the camera has low battery capacity. the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one:
-turn the camera on
-click on Menu button
-select options using left/right, up/down button
-select Set up 2
-Select Battery type
-Select Alkaline for non-rechargable
or Ni-MH for rechargable
-click OK button

this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.
