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.

That is usually a lens error.
Try removing and replacing batteries to reset the camera. Ensure that batteries are fully charged.

If that does not clear the problem, then the lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. This happens because there is dirt inside the lens (sand dust), or one part in the lens assembly is bad or went out of place.
Because of this he 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.
If if does not extend tapping gently the back of the camera, and if it does not retract helping lens back in while turning camera respectively on and off. Remember that you can also damage the camera if you put too much strength. Try also blowing air in the lens mechanism joints.

More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Our Samsung SL201 camera shuts down as soon as we turn it on. We purchased a new battery and it continues to do the same thing.


If it beeps before it shuts down, this indicates the lens cannot extend properly. Often dirt or sand is the problem and it will need to be professionally serviced.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Camera beeps loud 3 times and shuts right off!!


sounds like a lens error, does the lens extend or retract? You probably have to get the lens back on track, use gentle pressure wiht the camera face down on a towel covered table and turn on to see if the camera tries to retract the lens. I really dislike these types of cameras that extend the lens everytime, if it turns on in your pocket, your doomed!

Nikon L3 Lens wont extend


Hi:
If the camera has not been abused, such as dropping, impact of some sort, or restricting the extending lens, then there is an internal problem.
See my other posts on suggestions of selling it.
