Samsung NV10 - 4 bleeps on switching on then turns off

My Samsung NV10 has been working perfectly for the past month. Yesterday it stopped mid use and now the lens is out, and everying time i press the power button, the camera gives 4 bleeps and switches off. If i press the play button i can still scroll through my pictures and the buttons are still responding, but i can't use it. Any advice Thanks

Re: Samsung NV10 - 4 bleeps on switching on then turns...

Been shooting at the beach or high sea. There is prob some salt/sand inside your lens. If you gently slide a piece of paper with some strength (be shure it does not rip off inside your lens) in between the moving part of the lens. Turn on your cam and gently slide the paper around the lens. In my case this always works. I turn it on and off again if the lens is out a few times repeating theprocess and now it is fully opperational again.

Listen!! this is a homemade fix. to unsure good usage along time let samsung repair it because the sand is still in there !!!

Have fun kids

Not a clue as to why, but the company helped me out. Might give them a try.

I was able to contact the manufacturer who repaired my camera under warranty. They were wonderful to work with and my camera was only out of my hands for 10 days, out just before Thanksgiving and back just after! Amazing for a holiday time frame.

Fujifilm finepix J32 Zoom error

Had exactly the same problem with my fujifilm j32, after reading a few things on the net and definitely couldn't be bothered to waste money and time sending off a camera that cost a few quid I took matters into my own hands!
I turned the camera on and quickly grabbed the lens to stop it retracting again, once it was held out I gave it a good 'wiggle' moving it in all directions fairly firmly!
I then pressed the on/off button again to switch it off and then turned it back on and low and behold it turned on and worked perfectly after!
Hope this helps others cause it could save you a lot of time and money!

Samsung pl50 camera - lense wont go back in and wont turn on

The problem with mine was that the lens motor was somehow stuck. I gently pulled the lens out as I turned the camera on. It went back to normal afterward. Hope this helps

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Samsung S1065 does not turn on, beeps 3 times before powering off. Lens is extended, have checked batteries, not sure what else to do??

I had the same problem, firstly you will be able to press the button on the back to view your pictures, when you do and the camera powers up quickly press the menu button. Check that your battery settings are set to alkaline, then buy some good alkaline batteries and not cheap ones. Check that they are alkaline and not like what I did and bought panasonic zinc carbon.
This worked for me and mine would not turn on either until i changed the batteries to a good make.
