Camera beeps and turns off and lens won't retract


Lens error / Battery expire.
1. Use a new battery will fully charged and then use it. Hope you get good result.

2. Some time lens zooming gear getting damaged by dust. if that gear is scrached by dust then your lens can't work and it will stucked. Your camera automatically turn off.

Of those 2 85% chance of poor/ long time used Battery & 15% chance of lens zooming gear damaged.

Thanks, i am waiting for your feed back & if you satisfied then thumps me please.

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.

get a butter knife or any thin object like that and use it to push out the lens and turning it on at the same time you will hear a clicking noise which is normal once completely out, use your hand with a gentle but firm presure move it form left to right
and then hopefully it should work after that

It dont turn on


I had the same problem. Try to turn it on, 3 beeps and then it would shut down. Screen would come on for that time. Also, the lens was stuck open. It wouldn't close.

I twisted the lens (gently) and it appeared stuck. A gentle screw motioned seemed to free it. I hit the power button and it come on, but this time no 3 beeps and shut down. I then turned it off and this time the lens retracted and closed.

So, it appears that if the lens gets stuck open, it has a shut down feature that doesn't allow the camera to go further into its operation modes. I believe this stuck open problem occured on our camera when the batteries went low.

Again, a second of gentle twisting seemed to unstick it and with fresh batteries in, it was able to operate and shut down properly.

As far as batteries, I use the rechargeable Ni-Cad 2500 mA. They last a while.

Blessings to you!
