    same problem, switch the camera on, 3 beeps, then nothing happens. You have to take out the battery to switch it off - as if you don't the power button stays lit up

Met the same problem. I disassembled camera and found a lot of sand in lens transmission. I couldn't move lens even by hand. It was strongly jammed. I had to disassemble lens block completely to remove all sand. Now camera fully functional.

The lens on my L730 digital camera does not open.


Hi, I had exact the same problem with mine Samsung L730. I opened it and took the 2 flatcables from the circuit board (to the lens-unit) out of there connectors. After I put them back in again, the camera worked. I geuss it was a bad electric connection of the lens-unit. Maybe this will solve your problem. If the camera is older than 1 year and has no warrenty, just try this. Good luck.

My samsung digital L730 wont turn on


Just fixed mine, if the lens is out that's the problem we had, it was jammed and not allowing it to switch on, we gently pushed it back in, then switched on, the lens came out a bit then jammed, pushed it in again & kept doing it until it cleared the blockage.  
Works fine now!  
Hope it works for yo

Try removing the batteries and memory card. Let the camera set for awhile. Put the batteries back in but not the memory card, restart the camera. Does it work know? If it does, turn the camera off put the memory card back in. Turn the camera on, does it work now? If it doesn't, replace the memory card.

Samsung L730


This camera would have to be tested more, but it sounds like a ccd or sensor problem.
If this camera was made around the year 2000 or after a bit, then it could be a ccd problem common with many Sony made ccds in this period.
A loose connection internally could also cause similar problems.

Samsung L730 stuck


I tried turning it on, removing the battery, replacing the battery, and turning it on. This didn't work. When I repeated this but also removed the memory card, it did work.
