It wont turn on!

I was going through the manual and operating the camera to test all its features when suddenly it shutdown when i turned the knob to the GUIDE function. The Optical Zoom lens is extended and even if i tried turning it off and on nothing happened. The battery is fully charged, although the camera had been on for about 20 minutes when it shutdown. It doesn't want to work now everytime i press the on button it just makes a sound and a red light flashes. what do i do? please please reply soon! thank you! kathy de los reyes

Stops taking pictures

I have the similar problem, I turn on the camera and after the lens comes out , red light blink all this time, and suddenly it powers down without retracting the lens back in.
The battery are fully charged AA 2400mah / 2650mah Duracell at 4.0 ma with load test. I was wondering if there is any circuitry problem.? Any experts in digital camera electronics please respond? Trick: To bring back the lens back in for safekeeping i trik this, i turn it on while it is reading the memory etc and after a sec or two i turn the knob to off, this way lens goes back inside.
I have read other brands also have their cameras lens sticking out and never going back inside.

First item to check is the auto shutdown relay in the power distribution center. Also test all fuses. Beyond that, You will need a manual (chilton or haynes are fine) and a digital multimeter to begin testing everything else. Don't forget that power has to go through the ignition switch before anything can operate...make sure that's happening too.

Camara will turn on, show start screen, then shutdown.

Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery

Remove the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.

Knob wont turn on

Push down and to the right to by-pass the safety feature designed to keep the kids from turning it on and those who are new to the feature.

Goes off after lens come out.

Get it repaired under warranty. Sounds like a logic circuit problem.

Samsung s860 digital camera turns on and then goes to blank screen and will do nothing else, to turn off it requires battery removal. same story with new batteries.

Dear customer

thanks for ur inquiry for ur product

If the LCD screen is blank or black when you have your camera in the Camera or Play mode, the camera may need service. To determine if this is the case, follow these steps:

1. Press the Menu button to see if the LCD screen can display the OSD (On Screen Display). 2. Set your camera to Play mode, and then see if the LCD screen displays a picture. 3. To eliminate the possibility of a user setting causing the problem, put the unit into Auto mode by rotating the dial on the units exterior to Auto Mode. Note: The word "Auto" appears on the screen when this mode is activated. 4. If putting the camera into Auto mode does not resolve the problem, test the unit in Play mode. If the unit operates normally in Play mode, but the screen in Camera mode is blank, your camera requires service which you can arrange by Creating a Service Ticket below. Note: Because your camera has an automatic LCD display shutdown feature, its normal for the LCD to stop displaying when the camera has been on for along period of time. This feature prolongs battery life.
