    Same prob here... Except mine was very severe. I actually had to stick my finger nail around the silver piece around the lens and pry it off. Then it worked perfectly. Thanks to this website!!!!

    I have the same problem and eventually in desparation I took the cover off to see if I could spot anything. I turned the lens inside and things appeared to click into place. Problem is that I think I have now disconnected the power switch at the top. I think that camera is now a bin job unless anyone can give advice about what I might have done wrong.

    Camera beeps three times

  • desilew Sep 26, 2008

    Whenever I put in my batteries, the power only last for about 2-3 minutes. It beeps me and says "low battery", but the indicator on the camera reads the battery life as full. I brought new batteries and a charger, so I know it's not the batteries.

Same problem - lens had got stuck & screen wasn't working. So recharged batteries, put them back in & had the start up beep & sometimes the 3 beeps. Nothing obviously out of alignment with lens but gave it a wiggle & it retracted next time I tried turning it on, but still wouldn't go. Plugged in my phone adapter & it worked. Turns out must have been the lens, plus the rechargeable batteries had got too old & lost charge. Hope this helps someone.

Sometimes pulling a little harder is needed don't be afraid to do it, and you may have to pop it once or twice..

Had this problem on a Samsung D85. When I took the back cover off I noticed that the metal frame of the LCD was at a slightly different voltage to the negative battery connection. Less than 0.1volts so I was doubtful that it was anything important. Anyway I soldered a wire between the minus battery connection and the nearest bit of the LCD frame. Problem was solved.

The above advise about gently pulling and twisting the lens worked perfectly.  Thank you so much!

Posted on Oct 31, 2007

I just had the same problem and figured out what it was with my camera.  One of my kids had got it and turned it on and then dropped it.  The lens looked as if it was fine, but when I took a closer look I realized that it had been stuck on one side.  I grasped the lens on each side and gently pulled while twisting and it popped back into place.  I then turned it back on and off again and the problem was solved.

Solution worked great!! I was just about to give up & buy a new camera. I LOOKED at my lens that was extended & it WAS tilted just a little. I gently pulled it & it popped into place. THANKS!! I really like this camera because it's simple to use-so hated to have to get a new one!!

Posted on Apr 14, 2010

Same problem here. I observed the smaller piece of the telescoping lens looking tilted. Grabbed it and pulled it gently away from the camera body. It popped out a little, seated itself level and retracted itself. Good as new! Thanks for the tip.

Finallly sent it in for repair - two times! First time, it took several weeks before I got it back. When it arrived it still would not work, so it had to be sent in again. Then they tell me I broke the camera myself so if they are to send it back (unrepaired) I would have to pay them $50. At this time, paying shipping costs back and forth I figured it wouldnt be cost effective. All together it cost me a total of $200 for 15 pictures taken with the first battery set, which after it would do nothing but beep three times. Some people mention the cause being that they dropped it, but I never did, it was like that straight out of the box.

My camera turns on then beeps 3 times then shuts off is it broken or is there a reset button?


The three beeps mean that the lens motor is unable to extend the lens assembly.
This could be due to a low battery situation, but the most likely cause is the lens drive train stuck or jammed. You'll find generic instructions on solving some cases of jamming here.
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Unfortunately, more serious cases (due to falls, shocks, and most of all, the camera being turned on while some resistance prevents the lens from extending: e.g., if the camera accidentally turns on while in a pocket) require the repair shop.

Three beeps when i try to turn it on


i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

My polaroid i733 turns on the beeps 3 times then turns off when the sd card is in. i have tried formatting the card and camera but it still is not working any help


Had the same problem with our i733 Pink Polaroid. Beeps three times and then shuts off. The reason for this is that the lens is stuck in the partially open position. Because our camera was long past warranty and we bought it for $40 second hand I took the brute force approach. I grabbed hold of the lens and wiggled it from side to side while trying to pull it out (forcefully but being as careful as I could not to damage it) and then there was a small "pop" and the lens came out all the way and the camera was good to go again. Hope this helps.

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.

Why is the camera beeping?


I had t he three beep problem and also the lens was open. I tried batteries - then i noticed the lens was slightly bent - i tried straightening and it snapped and went into place. then i tried turning it on and it was fine and when i turned it off the lens closed.

Maybe your lens is bent.
