This is a very common problem with compact cams. All you've got to do is dampen a Q-Tip don't soak it, with rubbing alcohol. Next remove the battery and clean the contacts inside the battery compartment. Be cautious not to snag the battery ejection spring to the outer edge of the comparment. Do the same to the battery and the charging station. Your cam should work fine now. If not you need a new battery. Good luck, Dana

Samsun sl201 lens will not extend, then camera shuts down


If the camera's lens will not retract out, then eventually shuts down, here is what you try to do.

Hold the camera from your right hand with the lens facing down. Then tap the base of the camera to your left palm while turning the camara on; do this several times until the camera's lens retracts out.

This problem often occur when the camera was taken outdoor or in the beach. Sand or a tiny granule of dirt might got stuck in the base of the lens.

Lens error, restart camera


Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

My camera did the same thing. Try doing a couple of things.

1) remove and digital media cards.
2) turn the camera on and delete any pictures that may be stored in the camera memory (not on a removeable card)
3) remove the batteries for 60 seconds
4) replace the batteries without the media card and lay the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing up (not sure if this helps, but it worked for me)
5) The lens should retract.
6) Turn off the camera
7) replace the media card and turn on.

I think for some reason my camera was getting hung up on the pictures stored in the camera's memory.

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!
