When you powered it on, does the power supply fan spinning? If not, then you might need to change the power supply. It may got the led light lit on, but it does not have enough power to turn on the entire computer.
I dropped the camera on the table a couple of times, twisted the front of it. Suddenly the lens retracted into the camera, the beeping quit, and now I can take pictures again. The Samsung website is horrible.
1) Make sure that the batteries are in good condition
2) Check and clean any dirt or corrosion from the battery terminals.
If the power supply voltage suddenly drops during initialization, or when the lens is trying to extend itself, it could produce this kind of error.
3) Make sure that the lens extension tubes are not mechanically jammed.
4) Remove the batteries, turn the unit ON and wait for it to fully discharge any internal capacitors, then put the batteries back and try to turn the unit back on. This should fully RESET the internal CPU. ===
Generally this kind of error means that the camera's internal computer is trying to activate the lens zooming motors, but the motors fail to move as expected.
Other causes could be: a) burned out ZOOM motors b) burned out motor drive circuitry c) bad motor positioning sensor d) defective computer components e) failed internal firm-ware.
If when you press the power button the little green light on the right blinks it indicates that your circuit board is still ok. It would most likely be a bad lens unit. If you press the power button and the little green light does not blink you have a bad circuit board and it needs to be replaced.
Firstly try another battery to remove this as a possible issue. After this check the contacts in the battery compartment are clean and dry (moisture will kill a camera dead quick) If this is good then try plugging in the USB cable. This will sometimes kick the camera back to life. failing this some cameras are eqipped with a dc cord, try plugging it into the wall using the supplied transformer) If none of this helps then give it a light (light) tap against a hard surface and see if anything flickers (make sure there is power) Failing all of this there is little hope I'm afraid. Electronics these days are indeed disposable (not cheap yet still disposable) I will think up some more trys if none of this works.
