I had the same problem with my samsung s800 camera (from new!!!) draining batteries quickly and then being left with the lense out, i took the camera back to where i got it from (argos) and after being asked if i was sure i was putting charged batteries in they sent it away for repair and it turned out that the lense mechanism was broken, i think they charged me £10 to get it fixed but i have had no problems since then.

My zoom will not come out, just clicks trying to come out.


Stuck zoom is the most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with this problem include "E18 lens error", or "lens error, restart camera". Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.
The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended.
A camera owner that suffers this problem may have no recourse for having the camera repaired. Many camera makers will not honor repairing this problem under warranty as they claim it is due to impact damage to the camera, or sand or debris getting into the lens gearing mechanism (neither of which is covered under warranty). The quoted repair cost is usually close to or more than what the camera is actually worth.
This part can be easily replaced in most cameras.

My s800 camera wont turn on or it does but the zoom/lens is stuck and wont come out-it then has 3 beeps and turns off


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

My S800 has been amazing, however since Thursday when I take a pic and zoom in, the image is very bright, or white and has lines all over it (looks like a bad canvass painting, non zoomed images are fine!...


Hi, the problem is in the shutter that you can found inside of the lens unit and maybe the shutter not work properly or damage. you will notice also once you take picture during night time the pictue is good but if you zoom in you will find the lines all over the picture.

tryo to open your camera and check the lens unit. First try to disconnect the the lens cable and connect then check. if the problem still occur, you need to do is open the lens unit and adjust the shutter if working fine or not.also check the flat cable if its not broken.

if you can't do this bring to service center

goodluck and thank you my friend

My samsung digimax s800 won't turn on,the batterys are ok


the lens mechanism is not initialising, the cogs that move the lens are out of alignment slightly. you colud try and fix this yourself by taking the camera apart and realigning it manually, or sometimes you can get hold of the prodtruding lens and gently pull, be carefull !! you might hear a grinding noise as you pull this is just the main lens cog turning. once fully out put batterys back in and give it a go

Stuck


Could it be that there is something stuck in the lens barrel? Possibly grit of some sort? I would suggest pushing the lens in gently until the front shutter closes, then try to power on again, if this works and the barrel extends try to inspect for dirt in the barrel and get it out.

It wont turn on, And the zoom is extended.


I had exactly the same problem. Lens stayed open, when powered on you get three beeps and nothing. I found when I pulled the lens out a little harder it gave a little click. When I powered on it worked perfectly.

Jammed camera


A temporary fix to power up is to press the menu and power button at the same time. When the lens is extended and it beeps, on my camera , the lens is *stuck* Give it a gentle tug , then try the power button again
