Question about Samsung S860 Digital Camera

Open Question

I took a photo on Christmas Eve with my 5-year-old camera and the lens will not go back in. Batteries are fresh.

When the button is pressed, the light comes on, but nothing else responds. The button will not turn the green light off. Only opening up the battery cover turns it off.

SOURCE: camera wont turn on...gives beep sounds and green light glows when pressing power button

Does the lens extend in either of these cases? If there has been some malfunction in the lens and it fails to extend the situation can cause the camera to power-off in order to protect itself. Some cameras show error messages before powering off, others do not. Hold the camera up to your ear and turn the power on. Is there a series of mechanical sounds before the beeps? Hearing sounds but not seeing the lens extend indicates some sort of failure in the lens assembly. If you hear nothing then the problem most likely lies elsewhere, possibly a failed electronic component or something as simple as a loose connection. Check with your manufacturer for any recalls or technical bulletins, and see if they will service your camera under warranty. If not there are a number of repair facilitys available on the internet who generally have better rates than out-of-warranty service at the factory. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Try to power reset your camera by removing the batteries for a minute and reattach them again.

Use lithium batteries.

If that doesnt work, consider sending your camera for service.

SOURCE: Wont turn on, new batteries, green light just blinks.

Make sure you are using the correct batteries, and that they are installed correctly. Some cameras require more powerful kinds of batteries and will not work with the cheaper kinds.
A blinking light can mean something is wrong with the power, not enough or something else.
If you have a power adapter or can get one, you may try that, to see if the camera will work without batteries. If it does, then some problem exists in the battery circuit.

I am receiving error message lens obstructed. Nothing appears to be wrong with the lens, camera will not stay on and I cannot download photos I already took. Just changed fresh batteries.


There are some steps which can be followed which may resolve this problem which as follows,
STEP 1: Switch on the camera while you hold the shutter button and connect it to the AC adapter or to the USB cable at the same time.
STEP 2: Now by default the lens should get properly aligned if not try to twist them slightly by holding down the camera lens with soft hands.
STEP 3: Just push and pull the lens slightly as it extends automatically.
STEP 4: Now when the lens is in the hard surface power on your camera.
STEP 5: Try to hit the camera softly beside the lens which might solve the issue.
You can try to format the memory card completely and then reinsert to your camera which might be the issue at times.

There is propably a connection problem between the camera and the lens. Try taking the lens og the camera, and reattach it. If this does not work, try cleaning the golden connectors on the lens and the camera. Use a q-tip, gently rub the connectors, and reattatch the lens. If this does not work, you should get the camera serviced at a repair center.

Turn camera on, lens comes out, goes back in ,and says lens error.


try these fixes

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 using rechargeables, and they're more than a year old, consider purchasing new rechargeable batteries as they may not be providing sufficient power to startup the camera. If new batteries didn't work, try pressing and holding the 'Function' or OK button while turning the camera on.

2.If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

3.Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins back into their slots.

4.Insert the cameras audio/video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fix 3 as a means to provide extra power to help to this fix. Reinsert the cable only after tapping the camera.

Hi I have a Nikon coolpix L10. Took 2 photos, turned it off. Wont start up and red light stays on, any ideas


There is a capacitor dump that you can try.

Remove the batteries, wait 5-10 minutes.
With the batteries out, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds or so.
Put the batteries back in and your camera will start over (re-boot). You will know if it worked if you have to reset the date. But if that lens is really stuck you may be out of luck. The cost to repair it will exceed the cost of a new camera.

Took a few photos, switch off, 5 minutes later switched back on, blank screen but can view playback and menus


Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.

3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.

5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

Have you checked your batteries? If it's an old camera (keep in mind that it's not less than 3 years old) and you still use the original rechargeable batteries, they may need to be replaced as well.  Those rechargeable do not last for ever in a certain way. Go to a specialised photo shop and ask for your model. Hope that helps.

NIKON D80 MY CAMERA IS DEAD


if after replacing the batteries with new ones or freshly charged ones your camera does not start up, high chances that something internal has failed - that needs some professional checks to be done. The cam is built to identify and report most issues that can be corrected by the user. so if it does not turn on, chances are you need support from a camera repair shop. (Alt : one step that you already tried could have helped is the factory reset - there should be one or two buttons on the cam that needs to be pressed together to reset the cam)

CAMARA turns off when i press to take a photo


I have the same camera... and it was doing the same thing AFTER i changed my old batteries, because they were getting low. It was only after i put in the NEW batteries that i had this problem... I tried putting the old batteries back in and sure enough it worked again, so it probably all just depends on the brand of the battery you use.
