Jackboy is onto it, I think if condensation is the problem. But I also think that cleaning of the contacts is a good idea too. You can do this with a pencil eraser quite easily.

Lastly, you could try resetting the camera. This is a fairly easy procedure which involves either going into your setup menu and choosing "reset," holding down the menu key for 5 seconds, or, removing the batteries for a few minutes. It may be that the firmware loading got corrupted and the camera just needs to be "rebooted," which is something that turning it on/off won't accomplish. But after which, you should have the camera reset to factory default settings.

Another tip is to go to the camera's website and look for firmware updates. Download and install them.

Lastly, digital cameras need alot of battery power. ALOT. batteries with a higher mAh - like around 2500mAh would satisfy the higher power requirements of your camera.

You can check the battery with a DVM (Digital Volt Meter) but you may not know how to check the current of the battery.

Just because you have the right voltage, your current can be low, battery no longer hold charges.

Please try Solution #1, also.

This seems like a major error with the camera.
1st thing check the batteries are in good condition and the contacts are clean.
I suspect too that you live in a high humidity zone? is this so
Damp can cause problems- put the camera without batteries and card in a polythene bag with a quantity of dry[uncooked] rice or salt to attract moisture and leave in a warn dry place for a day or so
Tell me what happens

Samsung Digimax D53 will not stay on


This is most likely a lens failure. Try contacting your manufacture if your camera is still under warranty. If not, try contacting your local electronic repair shop to get it fixed. Hope this helps!

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.

Samsung Digimax S600 is stucked in off position


I've had this with a diff model of Samsumg (V10). The problem with mine was that the lens wasn't opening, which was causing the beeping. I held the camera with lens facing down and when I pressed the power button I lightly tapped the camera against the palm of my other hand. The lens extracted.

I have more problems with the lens now but that may have something to do with me dropping it later:(

Power on problem


Batteries are probably dead. Try getting rechargable batteries since Samsung S630 really drains batteries.

Camera will not stay on.....


the 3 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.

TROUBLE SHOOTING


We had the same problem. It would beep three times then shut off.
The lens was stuck in the out position. My son played with it until it loosened up and it works now. It had nothing to do with batteries.
If yours is stuck out. twist and push until it goes back in.
Good luck
