Hi Amber, This is an almost epidemic problem with all brands of digital cameras that have extending zoom lenses. I've had Canons hang before and now my Samsung S500 lens is stuck and camera is beeping in error mode (the kids dropping them you know). Continuing to power on the camera may cause further damage, but you have to face the fact that these cameras sell for $99, so sending it in for service of a very delicate lens assembly is probably going to be a tough call. First make sure you have brand new batteries or a full charge. Sometimes it's this simple. If not, maybe it's just hung and you can gently rock the lens extender as you power on the camera. I've had a lot of success with this method. If the camera takes a lot of hits to the lens assembly, it will eventually strip some of the plastic parts driven by the servo motor. At this point, it's all over; you'll get nothing but some clicking noises as the motor tries to extend the lens and the camera starts beeping in error mode. All is not lost. You can always recover your pictures from the memory card by purchasing a USB card reader from most any electronics retailer. As for the camera, you can try to get it serviced. I'd probably opt for a local service center rather than withering into a skeleton while dealing with the manufacturer. If you know someone handy with a miniature screwdriver, there are dozens of this model camera for sale on ebay for $0.99. Many of them power up and are in great condition except for the LCD screen. You could easily take the LCD screen from yours, transplant it and have a working camera again for 20 bucks or so! Good Luck

Is there anything that sounds like a "beeping" noise when it extends? A lot of times the focus motor gears are knocked out of place. This causes a lens error, even if the lens extends fine. The camera has the "external" zoom lens, and an internal focus lens. This can be only fixed with disassembly of the lens, if indeed this is the problem you're talking about.

Had a similar problem once. Fixed it by opening the camera and freeing up the lens cover.
1)Undo 2 screws each side and the base (6 in all) ignore the one on the front edge of the base for now.
2)Separate the base from the case (gently!) don't pull them too far apart, because they're joined by ribbon cables.
3)Then remove the long screw you ignored above, and again carefully separate the front panel.from the body.
4) At this point, you should be able to access the back of the lens cover, and free up the mechanism.
Once that' s done, put it back together, reversing the above sequence. Don't force anything, just make sure they're all lined up and fit before inserting the screws.

This is not an elegant solution, but it seems to be working. (I might have read some one else mentioning it for another brand of Samsung camera). I hit the end of the camera where the attachment to the computer gets plugged in against the palm of my hand pretty hard about 6 times. Then I tried it and it worked! There is some logic there since it started having the problem right after I put it down on a soft surface from about three feet.(Ididn't really drop it, but tossed it there - gently, I thought - because my hands were full and I was starting to lose everything). In the future I will treat the camera a little more gently knowing that mechanism is somewhat easily knocked out of adjustment.

Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
To reset the Camera back to factory default, press the RESET button located above the PHOTO button which will change all settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
If the issue persists, service may be required.
