Dear Claireee,
If this is DSC-S500 Sony cyber-shot, you should scan it with updated anti-viruse software and then format its internal memory with USB connected to PC. Hope problem will be solved.

Digimax S500


The lens stays in the outmost position although batteries are fully charged. This has happend twice. The first time I had a valid waranty so the problem was fixed for free. Now it has happend again and there seems to be no way to get the lens back into the camera. Also the display is totally black.
I guess I have taken about 500 pictures since the last repair. Not very much - even a cheap camera should last for longer than that.
Never Samsung again!!!

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.

Hi jenn8918,
I had the same problem until a friend of mine told me to use Energizer LITHIUM batteries instead (Silver and blue packaging).
 I will warn you ahead they are expensive (1 pack of 2 goes for about & $ 8:00 to $9.00 but they last quite a while (and I use my camera every day practically) they last me about 3 to 4 months. using anything other than the Lithium batteries is a waste of money ...believe me, I've learned my lesson by trying every "super" alkaline battery only to quit on me after 1 hrs use!

Good luck.
Denise
