If it won't turn on (the green light blinks and it beeps 3 times) push and hold the 'power' button and the 'play' button at the same time for a few seconds - it worked for my S730. Good luck!

Samsung S85 lens cover only closes halfway


Sounds like the lens cover will have got knocked off the guide rails, not much you can do, try blowing it with some compressed air incase there is any debris/grit stuck in there

Samsung Digimax S800 has lens stuck in open position. Replaced with fresh alkaline batteries, pressed on button, screen lit up for a second or so, turned off and gave 3 beeps. Any ideas? Thanks, Kevin


Did you accidentally drop it? If you did then there is a big chance that the lens is busted. If you didn't drop it, then it could be just dust/dirt inside the lens mechanism. Hold your camera with the lens facing the ground and then repeatedly tap it your camera gently - moderately to remove the dirt. You can also try spraying compressed air into it.

Samsung S85 camera wont turn on. When the power button is pressed the green light flashes and the camera beeps three times than turns off. how do i fix it?


I quote the solution posted for another expert about this same problem...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My daughter has a Samsung S850, and returned from a weekend trip last night. She pressed the "Power" button and the blue light next to the button came on, as did the screen. The camera then gave a "buzzy beep" three times and shut-down. She decided the batteries were low and replaced them with ordinary AAA alkaline batteries, nothing special, and got the same result.

This morning I checked the voltage on the new and old batteries with a volt-ohm meter and found the old ones were low but the new ones were good.

I read this site and saw a comment that the camera worked after the lens was worked a little bit.

Upon a close look at the lens, I could see tiny grains of sand around the outside of the glass, so I got a wooden toothpick and gently worked the sand out with plenty of tapping on a solid surface to drop them from the area. I also worked the tip of a clean toothpick under what appears to be a soft rubber sealing ring on the outer surface of the glass.

After all this, when the "Power" button was pushed, the lens moved out and the screen lighted, and all the camera now seems to be working.

I should add that shortly after my daughter bought the camera, she lost some kind of metal or plastic ring from around the lens, and that left the "works" around the lens open to view: I can see two tiny screws the lens that are probably ordinarily covered.

Is the lens supposed to be covered by a curtain when power is off? From what I see, the lens is always uncovered. Maybe that lost ring held something else!

Hello i have a samsung camera model S85 and when i try to turn it on it does 3 beeps and doesnt even turn on.


Assuming you've tried the obvious test of using new batteries, it's unfortunately likely to be the infamous "lens error". This is such a common problem that someone has written a blog just addressing this one error. You can read it here - it describes it far more completely than I ever could!

Also, check this post.

The power is okay the lens open a second then closed again what do you think the problem?


Hi,

There may be any of the three possible fault in your device.


1) There may be dirt or dust in the lens area, preventing your device to extant the lens. you'll need to blow some air to get any possible dirt/dust out of it on the lens area.

2) May be battery is malfunctioning.

3) May be your ON / OFF switch is malfunctioning, you need to take your device to service centre for repair.


Have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

We have a Samsung S85 and the lens is sticking. It either will not go in or will not come out without effort on our part. when it is stuck it beeps 4 times and shuts off. What can we do to fix this?...


You can try with fully charged batteries. If this does not help, you may need to take it to a camera repair shop or buy a new one.

Overall there have been issues with the S85, as the lens gives a problem. Lubricating can be a good idea but you should not use any liquid that can not evaporate, however the best idea woudl be to go to the nearest Samsung dealer and have it checked.

The camera beeps 3 times on startup and then shuts down...


You have dirt trapped in the lense mechanism. use compressed air can to blow it out then turn camera off ans slap it into the palm of your hand a few times and turn on again to test if it has cleared. This is not a joke it actually works. Lots of these types of cameras suffer from this problem and I have fixed them using this method. Passed on By a Canon Tech!!! It certainly worked for mine . Be persistent some work immediately others take several goes of blowing and slapping face down

Samsung S85 problem


I have had similar symptoms that seem to be due to battery power.
Using and OHM meter I find that the Samsung S85 eats batteries. If the charge drops to 1.4 something volts from a 1.5+ volt battery, the camera does not function properly.
The camera is nice an compact ... but I need to carry the same volume in batteries to make sure I can use it.

Camera showing ERR message and the shutter will not open


Sounds like the connection between the camera and the lens is the issue. Try gently removing the lens. Be sure both camera and lens areas are free of dirt or debris. Be very careful NOT to get any dust, dirt or anything in the camera. That will cause bigger problems yet.
