    Hi, same problem here : the lenses are out, the screen is black, and the blue light is on (for when the camera is on). I can't turn off the camera unless I remove the battery.

If none of the other solutions work this is a more extrema option
I had this same problem with the Samsung L830
I had no camera experience so you know this is not too difficult.

  1. I unscrewed the front cover by taking out the screws on the sides and bottom. (make sure you put them where they wont get lost they are very small)
  2. Snap off the front cover
  3. In the upper right hand corner next to the lens there is a cover with three screws in it remove this cover.
  4. There Should be some gears if you remove the gears clean them and make sure it is running smoothly, then replace everything in the correct order it may solve your problem
This is what i did hopefully it helps

The lens has stuck in the closed position This happened 12 months ago as as repaired under warranty. the camera has not been used for a few months but has no stuck. thsi is a silver samsung l820 digital


Since you were not as clear as you could have been, my expertise is limited. When I had a camera like this, mine did the same thing. I sent it in to the manufacturer and they told me it was unfixable and my best bet was to purchase a new one. I purchased a refurbished version of the same model, and it worked fine. This is a very rare problem, and your best bet is to get rid of the camera and get a new one.

Camera has jammed with the lens extended


If the lens on the camera is stuck out, look to see if it's a little crooked. If it is, try to gently straighten it. If it still won't retract, try to gently push it in as you turn the power on.

My samsung L830 camera has jammed with the lens open and


Just had this happen to my L100. First, take out the battery and wait a couple hours for everything to cool down and discharge. Then place the battery back in. Then plug the USB cord into the camera and PC. Then turn the camera on and it should be okay. Just worked for mine.

My samsung l830 camera lens is stuck open and when i press the power button it beeps 3 times and remains blue then does nothing


If the lens on the camera is stuck out, look to see if it's a little crooked. If it is, try to gently straighten it. If it still won't retract, try to gently push it in as you turn the power on.
If it won't turn on (the green light blinks and it beeps 3 times) push and hold the 'power' button and the 'play' button at the same time for a few seconds - it worked for my S730. Good luck!

Samsung L830 wont' work


well when you charge your camera your charger should be red at first; green means it's fully charged...as for the lens....try turning it on and gently pull or push on the part that sticks out and maybe it might activate and go back in.

that happened to mine and I tried that and it worked...now my only issue is that the shutters won't close and when I turn it on i get like 3 beeps and the screen shuts off with the power button still on...

seems like everyone's having this problem.

good luck. :]

Wont turn on


Sounds like what I just explained in my own fix to in subject: "Samsung L830 wont' work".
I found some junk in the gearwheels, so the engine got stuck, leaving the lens in some fixed position.
Small parts as do-it-yourself, but easy to get into as explained in other thread
