Re: Camera will no power up

I had the same problem and even sent the camera out to be repaired. It worked for about 2 weeks and then the same thing happened. I was looking on the internet for help and someone said to pull on the silver part around the lens because when it shut off this part was still sticking out some. I pulled on it a little bit and the camera started working again.

Shutter button does nothing when pressed halfway, will not focus automatically. It doesn't make the beeping noise, no green box, nothing happens! I can press it all the way and take a picture, but t

Please check if yu did set the camera in AF mode continuous. In that mode, the camera is focusing on whatever is aimed at. Even when the shutter button is not pressed, allowing you to shoot without missing opportunities.
The mode where you see the camera focus when the button is pressed half way, is called single. This setting will conserve battery power.
Look in the manual under Switching between Focus Settings. I can't tell you war page that is for your camera, in mine it is page 100.
On the last pages in the book are all settings for each shooting mode.

When I power on our Samsung L210, it turns on for about 4 seconds, beeps 3 times then turns off. What is the issue?

Sometimes the LENS can get stuck inside of it or outside of it. I would wiggle the lens around a little bit, putting a bit of pressure on it while doing so and see if that fixes it. Make sure you're attemping to turn the camera on while doing this.

Good luck!

When the power is turned on, the lens stays in the camera, it starts beeping and it tells you to turn the power off and on again

1) Remove SD Card.
2) Remove Battery.
3) Hold power button for 10 seconds.
4) Install Battery.
5) Attempt to power on.
6) If works, reinstall SD Card and you're ready to go!

Thanks and please rate if this helps you!

My Camera Won't Charge!!!

Your batteries are dead. You can buy them buy doing a search for your model number on your camera, and it will tell what batteries to use.

My camera will not immediately take a picture.

The beep and no shutter action is usually because the auto focus is not focused. If you are using a zoom lens try backing up or unzooming a little.

Beep - Beep - Beep - but No Picture

1. If the camera can not focus on a subject, or can not determine the appropriate exposure setting, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. This is to avoid improper processing of the image. This is usually due to either poor lighting conditions or movement. 2. The camera Flash Element requires ten seconds to recharge between images. Although the camera is ready to continue capturing images almost immediately in bright (daylight) settings, if you are using Flash photography the Flash element will need to charge between shots. If you try to take a picture before the Flash is charged, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. Once the Flash unit is fully charged (10 seconds), the camera is ready to continue. 3. The batteries may be running low. LCD Display, Flash, and Playback use much more power than taking pictures. It is possible to quickly consume battery power, even if you are not taking many pictures. Try turning the Mode Dial to the OFF position to recycle power. If the camera beeps and will not take a picture under normal conditions, you may need to change batteries. Please refer to the section pertaining to Battery Life.
