Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera
Get a butter knife or any thin object like that
and use it to push out the lens and turning it on at the same time
you will hear a clicking noise which is normal
once completely out, use your hand with a gentle but firm presure move it form left to right
and then hopefully it should work after that

Probably the lens may have been stuck out so it would not power on. It will in this case create a 3 beeps and power off. You can kept putting it on and
at the same time pushing the lens left and right. After you heard a
click sound and the lens would be back probably. It continues to shut down because the lens were
stuck and that is why it was not booting up. This is a major flaw for this particular model.
Please Rate Thanks!

I've got the same problem. i tried changing the batteries but iot didn't work. i tried to connect the unit to the pc to reset but it doesn't work just the same. i took had the camera taken to the samsung service center in greenhills. the unit beeps because the lens barrel was stuck. it had to be replaced. the parts plus repair cost almost P2k. according to the technician, problem must have been due to moist build up

Its not the batteries...I have the same camera and I am extremely dissapointed. I can put in brand new LITHIUM batteries and it will still beep 3 times...I also have the problem of the lens staying out...I will go to take a picture and as soon as I click the shutter button half way to focus it will turn off....Right now I am having this problem but this time the camera won't turn back on...It usually will turn back on after it does this...I have friends who also have the same camera and I was taking a picture for them and it did the same thing...just last night!
