Question about Samsung S1070 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens is stuck out, camera makes a three beep noise

The lens is stuck out, camera makes a three beep noise and refuses to be turned on. what can I do please? My daughters' S1070, of course she has no idea as to how it was broken! The lens seems to be at a slight angle but even when straight refuses to go in. I can get the outer lens part to go in with a little jiggle, but the centre lens is very stuck. There is also a "geary" type noise as well as the 3 beeps. Any ideas please?

I'd say the lens gears are stripped or at least out of alignment. Probably due to dropping it on the lens while extended. The camera will have to be sent to the factory or a factory authorized service center. You can also call the customer service folks for help but that will most likely be in vain.

Hi,
It seems your camera Lens got stuck in open condition.
This will happens due to two reason.
1) Either your camera battery got died or need to be recharged or replace. or 2) Your camera is malfunctioning and need service (repair).
To resolve the problem, follow these steps.
1) Switch the camera OFF and then ON again. (May be your camera lens is struggling to extend)
2) Remove and recharge / replace the battery, If the error does not clear, Keep battery battery out of the camera overnight, and try again the next day.
Else your device need service (repair)
good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

My samsung s1070 will not turn on. it was working yesterday and i was able to take pictures with it. now when i turn on the power button the camera beeps three times but nothing is visisble on the lcd...


OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!

Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.

Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.

Please rate our help to keep the service online+++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Three beeps when i try to turn it on


i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

Zoom problem Hi, my Samsung S1070 camera won't zoom in and starts making noises & won't shut down or zoom out again, and the vision gets all blurry! what to do?


You have sand or some other small particles trapped between the moving parts of the lens. But I don't recommend you to try to clean it! Because you need to disassemble the camera and if you don't set the lens as exactly as it should be, the images will be blurry forever!

Lens stuck


First, if you can, try to save the pictures on the camera to something off the camera. Then, on the camera menu, navigate to the RESET menu option and select it. The camera should reset and hopefully it will function properly. If this doesn'r work, then the camera will have to be repaired or replaced.

Lens stuck


If the lens is not coming out, its stuck, or it wont completely open or close, that is the lens assembly, that needs to be repaired. You need to take it to somebody, that can either repair it or replace it for you. There is nothing that can be done, other than that......
