I turn camera on. Lens comes out. beep 3 times. turns off.


Everytime I try to turn it on, the lens comes out for about a second, the camera beeps 3 times, the lens retracts and the camera shuts off. The battery is completely charged and the camera is only 4 months old. HELPP :(

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...

When I try to turn on my camera (Samsung Digimax S500), it beeps 3 times.


My Samsung S500 kept shutting down (with lens extended but no beeping) as soon as it was turned on. After reading similar problems being caused by a jammed lens mechanism, I GENTLY twisted & tugged the extended lens mechanism (no crude comments please), and it worked the next time it was turned on.

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!!

Digimax samsung s500 beeps 3 times lens stuck wont stay on


Mine got stuck with lens out. The batteries were new so I never imagined it could be the batteries, but they were cheap ones so I recharged a pair of good ones and once I put tried them on it worked just fine again. Conclusion, the "new" cheap batteries had only enough energy to turn it on and then they couldn't give it enough energy to make it work anymore and that's why I couldn't retract the lens or even turn it off properly. So in your case, try using a couple of good and new batteries.
