Re: 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!

When turned on camera beeps 3 times & the zoom

Does it take standard disposable batteries or a rechargeable pack?
If the first, check they are inserted correctly as per the illustration in the battery compartment or instruction manual section on inserting batteries.
If the second type, recharge the pack.
If problem continues check Troubleshooting section of manual or online at Samsung's website.

Everytime I try to turn it on, the lens comes out for about a second, the camera beeps 3 times, the lens retracts and the camera shuts off. The battery is completely charged and the camera is only 4 months old. HELPP :(

Beeps 3 Times

I need more information.
How was the camera treated, such as: Was it ever dropped, impacted, or otherwise treated roughly. Water or liquid can also do a lot of damage internally, without seeing any evidence from the outside.

get a butter knife or any thin object like that and use it to push out the lens and turning it on at the same time you will hear a clicking noise which is normal once completely out, use your hand with a gentle but firm presure move it form left to right
and then hopefully it should work after that

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.
