    my camera's lense is frozen and doesnt turn on not even with full batteries

    same issue. camera is frozen in the off position with the lens open, regardless of battery type or power. the light blinks while the power or play button is held, but then it makes a light click sound and switches off.

    same problem, but it only started doing this a few months ago, now the lens is completely frozen all the time. I also think it may be a gear problem inside the lens mechanism, but dont know why this would happen after a year or two usage, and how to fix it

The beeping sound means that the camera has low battery capacity. the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one:
-turn the camera on
-click on Menu button
-select options using left/right, up/down button
-select Set up 2
-Select Battery type
-Select Alkaline for non-rechargable
or Ni-MH for rechargable
-click OK button

this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.

I had this same problem, and all i did was pop out the SD card, and tried turning it on without it in there.  It powered up just fine.  I then replaced the SD card and all was well.  Possibly a problem with teh SD card.

Samsung digimax s700 gives 3 beeps and turns off


The Samsung digimax takes standard AA batteries (but you already new that). The beeps sound like a flat battery warning.

A lot of reviews of this camera note its very high drain on batteries. Are you using good quality AA batteries (for example Duracell M3 or Energizer lithiums)?

If you are trying to run it with "very inexpensive" alkalines (or worse yet - common zincs), then you may proceed directly to flat battery warning, as they cannot provide enough sustained current to run it.

Samsung s700 camera lens won't retract


you must have dropped your camera where it caused damage in internal part. when cameras are dropped wires and screws inside loosen which will cause trouble. Have it checked by a pro. you might destroy it more if you try to fix it yourself. Thanks.

TIPS:
1.)NEVER PUSH THE LENS IN AFTER CAMERA DIES, BUY A NEW BATTERY IMMEDIATLY AND TURN IT BACK ON, CLOSING THE LENS!

2.)NEVER USE AN AC ADAPTER, USE A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY OR A REGULAR BATTERY!

..to fix this...

Do as i say..

1.) Remove battery
2.) Remove front plate (screw driver may be needed)
3.) Check all gears, make sure they are correctly fitted in place)
4.) Move the gear manually to make the lens come out.
5.) keep it out, put the front plate back together.
6.) reinsert the battery, turn it on.


or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Wait about 6-8 hours.
3.) Reinsert the battery.

or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Try hooking it up through AC adapter, put correct voltage.
3.) Try turning it on.
4.) Remove AC adapter, reinsert battery.
5.) Turn it on.
If nothing happens just tell me..

Hope this may help;

OUTER LENS POPPED OUT


Since you are out of warranty you have to repair it yourself or get a new one. If you can open it and take it all apart it's pretty simple just remember how things look on the inside. All lenses that retract are on a little motor and gears. This is what you have to check and unfortunately it's usually under everything else. If you can get there see if the gear housing is cracked, the gears are in place and not striped and meshing ok. I believe it is going to be the gears. It's not as hard to take a part as people make it seem.
