Samsung Digimax D53; 5.0 megapixels

Subject camera worked fine up until two weeks ago.  U turn it on and the lens wont retract.  Already checked the batteries; it wont respond to any normal commands.  Have to take out batteries to get camera to turn off.

Camera is 10 months old, should i just send it back to mfg?  If so, where.

Mind did the same thing. Try taking out the memory card. If it works after that, you'll have to buy a new memory card.

My samsung digital L730 wont turn on

Just fixed mine, if the lens is out that's the problem we had, it was jammed and not allowing it to switch on, we gently pushed it back in, then switched on, the lens came out a bit then jammed, pushed it in again & kept doing it until it cleared the blockage.  
Works fine now!  
Hope it works for yo

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.

Digimax 430 camera won't turn on

If your lens is open and the camera turns off after those dreaded beeps, I have a fix for your problem. Basically, for this model of camera, the lens first pushes out a bit and then it retracts into the camera. Well, my lens got stuck on the pushout and it prevented the camera from turning on. I used some finger pressure and wiggled the lens a bit. Then I turned it on and it retracted to where is was supposed to be to take pictures. Then I turned it off and it retracted into the camera. Problem solved!
