Will not detect

Turns on with fresh batteries and does the usual series of beeps. All the buttons work and the settings can be changed but does not detect anything at all on any setting.

It sounds like you could have a bad coil if you know of anyone with a Bounty Hunter detector than just try swapping out the coils and see if it takes care of the problem. If you need to you can order a new coil from the manufacturer or on eBay. If this is not the problem than you should contact the factory (First Texas Products) about repairing it. If it is less than 5 years old they will repair it for FREE, even if you are not sure how old it is they have no serial numbers on their products so they can not tell how old they are so they will still repair it for free if you tell them it is less than 5 yrs old. Call them first before sending it in, 915-633-8354

I hope this helps, Dutch

My camera has a "lens error". It will not contract back and stays out in beeps and gives me this message to start, but doesn't do anything.


The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended.

1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera.

Thank you !!

Camera wont turn on

The camera may in fact be hung in voice recording mode, or may in fact have a low voltage error or internal failure. Suggest that you follow this routine. 1 remove batteries and press the on button, nothing should happen. Allow camera to sit for five minutes. 2 remove memory card if one is installed into camera. 3 install two fresh batteries in camera and attempt to power it on. 4. once on set the time and date. attempt to take a photo. then cycle the camera off. Once again power it on and see if the settings remain intact. If it is working then power off and insert the memory card and test again. I have found that allowing the camera batteries to run low and die in the camera cause a series of problems like the one that you have. Always use rechargable batteries of the Nickel metal hydride construction in this camera. This is the only known reliable power source for this camera. Note: camera instructions for this model can not be found on the samsungusa site and you will have to go to to find instructions for this older model.

Don't work.

Cameras belonging to the S Series really do have a battery type option that needs to be set up first for proper power connection.

Recommended batteries are just:
- Alkaline (Non-rechargeable)
- Nickel-metal Hydride (Rechargeable)

Just set the proper battery type by:
- Pressing MENU/OK button
- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Keep on scrolling down and look for battery type
- Press the right button to pick up on 2 options
like Alkaline and Ni-MH
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Keep pressing MENU/OK to get out of the MENU

Once, it's done, camera needs to be turned off for a few seconds
so that settings made will be refreshed with the camera.

As you turn camera on, you're now ready to take many pictures.
ALKALINE (Non-rechargeable) batteries when set to the correct battery type will really take a maximum of 100 pictures.

It really doesn't matter if you'll be using 2500mAh. So long as those are the recommended batteries, those will work.

Weird problem. Camedia d-520 doesn't turn on. Blinks and Beeps.

I'm having the same problem with mine. Happens on rechargeables or brand new standard batteries as well. Very frustrating. I can't take more than 2 videos in a row without the dreaded orange/green lights flashing (low battery warning). Leaving it for 10-20 minutes and it works again, with the battery charge showing full.
