I had this same problem and it was driving me crazy. I looked the camera over carefully and noticed that the lens was a little crooked. I gently pulled the protruding lens piece a little and it popped into place. After that, the camera worked fine. I guess if the lens is jammed the camera won't turn on if the lens can't move. I hope this helps you.

I had the same problem and was told by the tech support guy to go to the website and follow the instructions there. That doesn't work I searched the FAQs for some kind of return address and found nothing so I used the same solution that someone else posted about the video camera I also have and it worked for me. All I did was turn the camera on and just as the screen lit up tapped it with my hand and that made it stay on then zoom in as far as it will go. When I did it wasn't focused so I zoomed backout and cut it off and back on again and it was working again.

The view screan on my Samsung S630 camera is all blurry

Hi Guys

Every time I'd try to turn my camera on, it would give three beeps and then go off.

I decided to search your Fixya tips, and I found it. All I needed to do was press and Hold the OK/Menu button while I turned on my Samsung S630 camera and it worked!!!!!!
Thanks for the tip, and I hope Someone else will get the same benefit

My S630 Samsung shows a code on the screen evry time I try to take a picture. The code is F2.8 1/45 and the little eye on the left that indicates the flash blinks for a few seconds.

your carera is set on shutter priority,,,
change it to auto
what its telling you is,, its set at a lens opening of F2.8 ( thats wide open ,,,so little or no depth of field in photos) ,(and a shutter speed of 1.45 of a second?) witch means its realy dark were you are??
the little eye flashing tells you to use the flash,,,
i bet you have left it set on flash photos only?
switch it over to auto mode and out of flash mode!

Camera Stuck with lens out. Beeps

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.

Samsung S630 camera says "low battery" then shuts off

This camera needs rechargeable batteries usually lasts about a week with much use. I thought what a waste of batteries then tried these rechargable and the situation hasn't occured . it is probably because it is small digtal camera which uses alot of power.

This is because you have to use disposable batteries designed for digital cameras. Some disposables are designed for different uses. SInce digital cameras use a lot of power you have to use ones that are designed for them which is why it is almost always recommended to use rechargeable batteries for digicams

S630 camera not working !!!!!!!

If the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues.

You could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved - Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

Third, you could try cleaning the lens with a soft clean cloth.
Make sure you are wiping gently.

Fourth, try to take a picture using this way:
- Press and hold the shutter button halfway first for 3-5 seconds,
and then press it all the way down

Fifth, if it still does the same thing, then your camera needs to be repaired by a technician.

If you want to know where you could send it, just call the hotline of the manufacturer of your product so you could get assistance
about this matter.
