Question about Samsung SC-X300L Camcorder
I have the external lens for this camera (helmet cam) which plugs into the back of the camera, near the charger input. To use the external lens, when connected you start with the camera off and hold the button on the external lens. The camera will then turn on and use the external lens. I can get mine to start fine, but as soon as I move (likely the connection at the camera) the camera turns off and restarts in a normal video mode without use of the external lens.
I'm pretty sure the problem is with the connection between the two, but whether it is on the camera side or the lens side I cannot say. Any input?

This is most likely a defective CCD problem. While most manufacturers have advertised a service advisory for this problem, Samsung has not. Call them and suggest a defective CCD and they'll send you a mailing label for a warranty repair at no charge. 1-800-726-7864

okay.... Try this if lens is stuck out... look at the side profile of the lens... you should notice the it is not even.. the lens is probably stuck at a slight angle.. GENTLY force the lens to where it looks even... should fix the problem.... worked for me.

This is not an elegant solution, but it seems to be working. (I might have read some one else mentioning it for another brand of Samsung camera). I hit the end of the camera where the attachment to the computer gets plugged in against the palm of my hand pretty hard about 6 times. Then I tried it and it worked! There is some logic there since it started having the problem right after I put it down on a soft surface from about three feet.(Ididn't really drop it, but tossed it there - gently, I thought - because my hands were full and I was starting to lose everything). In the future I will treat the camera a little more gently knowing that mechanism is somewhat easily knocked out of adjustment.
