This problem is usually caused by grit in the mechanics of the lense. To resolve the problem:

1. Ensure the lense itself is clear, removing any visible objects.
2. Try tapping / knocking the camera to dislodge any obstruction.
3. Failing this you can force the mechanics by turning the lense sections - however be careful when attempting this as you may snap the lense if turned too hard or the wrong way.

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.

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.

this problem is a is usual occurrence when the camera is not well powered.
ie. the battery might not have enough charge on it or might have gone bad and require you to replacei it.

please ensure you get the battery with right voltage and wattage, the required is usually written around or in the battery compartment.

SOURCE: my daughters L730 charges, powers

Digital cameras work off different voltages. For instant the lens zoom motor usually runs on 6 volts of power. The power switch can run as little as 2 volts/ Capacitors are used for each circuit to provide the correct voltage as neede to operate. The circuit for the power on switch has a faulty capacitor in yours. It will be less expensive to purchase a new camera than having this one repaired

Dropped my L730 digital camera and since then when viewing pictures taken, there are lines across the screen...?


Sounds like the shutter has been damaged and is stuck open, which overexposes photos and gives a 'venition blind' effect - the shutter and/or lens unit would need to be replaced. Probably marginal given low replacement costs.

I have same prob


If the lens is uneven it may have became jamed to one side. I've seen a lot of these. The lens really should be replaced but I have be sucessful in poping them back into alignment, very dangerous however and a job best left to an expert like me. If you are going to throw it away anyway I guess you could try it at your own risk.

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.
