The problem you describe is frequently battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Some stupid person has dropped and then kicked my brand new Samsung camera and now it won't turn on and the lens is stuck out :( When I try to turn it on it makes a weird beep and won't turn on and...


You should try to get that stupid person to buy you a new camera if the following doesn't help. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.

My camera turns on then beeps 3 times then shuts off is it broken or is there a reset button?


The three beeps mean that the lens motor is unable to extend the lens assembly.
This could be due to a low battery situation, but the most likely cause is the lens drive train stuck or jammed. You'll find generic instructions on solving some cases of jamming here.

Unfortunately, more serious cases (due to falls, shocks, and most of all, the camera being turned on while some resistance prevents the lens from extending: e.g., if the camera accidentally turns on while in a pocket) require the repair shop.

Camera lens stuck


We dropped our Samsung s730 (twice!) and got the lens jammed slightly sideways. I read a blog somewhere about this and just did what she said- If it is stuck out and obviously jammed sideways, push on the lens the way it should sit. I had to press really hard, but it snapped back into place and now works fine!

This WILL NOT work if: The lens retracts normally and goes back out normally, or it is not OBVIOUSLY stuck slightly askew. Sadly, with cameras this low in price about the only option is to replace it as repairs would cost more than a replacement.

In the future I plan on getting a squaretrade.com damage warranty on ALL my small 'droppable' electronics, it is pretty inexpensive (usually the same price as 'store brand' extended warranties that only cover defects).

Already frustrated wit samsung S73


Make sure you are using alkaline batteries.
I agree the battery use an ugly problem. Mine does the same. It's either a design flaw or really bad quality control.
