The lens gets stuck out and the little green light bleeps but it won't work or turn on -.- what do i do?!??!!?


Put in fresh batteries in your camera and try to power on. If this didn't work, to do this little trick:

1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.

2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.

Chances are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.

Hope this helps.

The issue is likely a bad lens assembly. Consumers wishing to repair this can check ebay for a replacement lens assembly, motor and sensor are usually included.

This happened to my Samsung s700 while I was mucking with it recently. It can happen when the lens meets severe resistance while trying to open, thus damaging the lens. The camera turns on and cannot tell precisely where the lens is, and subsequently the camera leaves the CCD imaging sensor turned off.

Replacement is easier than repair as lots of intricate parts are involved. However, the centermost ring will pop off with a little force, revealing four screws. The screws on the back side of the lens assembly are pretty obvious. Best of luck to anyone trying to fix this rather than replace it...

Camera frozen


The autofocus motor is stuck. It's a Samsung common problem and can't be fixed by the user. If it's still under warrenty you can send it to the the listed repair facility in NYC, otherwise you might wind up paying aa much as what you bought if for. BTW, they fixed mine while it was still under warrenty and three months later, it's broken again with the same problem. My advice? DON'T BUY ANOTHER SAMSUNG PRODUCT AS LONG AS YOU LIVE!!

Camera wont turn on...gives beep sounds and green light glows when pressing power button


Does the lens extend in either of these cases? If there has been some malfunction in the lens and it fails to extend the situation can cause the camera to power-off in order to protect itself. Some cameras show error messages before powering off, others do not. Hold the camera up to your ear and turn the power on. Is there a series of mechanical sounds before the beeps? Hearing sounds but not seeing the lens extend indicates some sort of failure in the lens assembly. If you hear nothing then the problem most likely lies elsewhere, possibly a failed electronic component or something as simple as a loose connection. Check with your manufacturer for any recalls or technical bulletins, and see if they will service your camera under warranty. If not there are a number of repair facilitys available on the internet who generally have better rates than out-of-warranty service at the factory. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
