This error is due to the lens mechanism being jammed and unable to extended, usually due to dirt or grit getting inside. The motor times out and the camera beeps 3 times before shutting down.
If you are unable to have Samsung fix this under warranty, you can carefully prise the lens out using a feeler gauge while powering the camera on, giving the motor a little help.

Hi, I had exact the same problem with mine Samsung L730. I opened it and took the 2 flatcables from the circuit board (to the lens-unit) out of there connectors. After I put them back in again, the camera worked. I geuss it was a bad electric connection of the lens-unit. Maybe this will solve your problem. If the camera is older than 1 year and has no warrenty, just try this. Good luck.

i had this problem. what i did was, i used a small screwdriver (like the ones from a tech deck :D) to open up the camera. i then turned the camera on and twisted the lens at the same time and it became free. just fixed it today even though its been broken for a year!

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.
