Black screen

The issue is likely a bad lens assembly. Consumers wishing to repair this can check ebay for a replacement lens assembly, motor and sensor are usually included.

This happened to my Samsung s700 while I was mucking with it recently. It can happen when the lens meets severe resistance while trying to open, thus damaging the lens. The camera turns on and cannot tell precisely where the lens is, and subsequently the camera leaves the CCD imaging sensor turned off.

Replacement is easier than repair as lots of intricate parts are involved. However, the centermost ring will pop off with a little force, revealing four screws. The screws on the back side of the lens assembly are pretty obvious. Best of luck to anyone trying to fix this rather than replace it...

Digimax S500

The lens stays in the outmost position although batteries are fully charged. This has happend twice. The first time I had a valid waranty so the problem was fixed for free. Now it has happend again and there seems to be no way to get the lens back into the camera. Also the display is totally black.
I guess I have taken about 500 pictures since the last repair. Not very much - even a cheap camera should last for longer than that.
Never Samsung again!!!

Digimax samsung s500 beeps 3 times lens stuck wont stay on

Mine got stuck with lens out. The batteries were new so I never imagined it could be the batteries, but they were cheap ones so I recharged a pair of good ones and once I put tried them on it worked just fine again. Conclusion, the "new" cheap batteries had only enough energy to turn it on and then they couldn't give it enough energy to make it work anymore and that's why I couldn't retract the lens or even turn it off properly. So in your case, try using a couple of good and new batteries.

My samsung s500 digimax isd problematic

The Zoom motor is shot probably because it has had a knock or dropped. This is not an economic repair option I feel Check Samsung customer support
