    I had the same problem, returned the camera and got another, and I have the same problem again.

    Alright, I have had the same problem--and there is a way I fixed it. The problem lies within the lens, I later discovered--because I was pretty much screwed out of getting a new camera, I threw that thing so hard against the wall, the batteries and memory card came out of it BUT the lens on the camera adjusted itself when I re-iserted the batteries and memory card. It was fixed! So, if you have no options left, throw that camera hard (but not too hard) against the wall, pick up the batteries and insert them in again, turn on the camera...and viola! Hopefully it will work for you too!

    Any legitimate solution for this issue? There has to be some kind of reset.

You can buy Litheum E squared batteries. They work long enough for you to change the setting on the camera. =/ but the same thing still happened to me...

I know this is a litytle late BUT for people that find this thred,the problem in not in the lense but in the batteries that you use. You need to make sure that you get batteries that have a mA rating of 2100ma our more. I sugest you use 2700ma (milliamp) batteries. The no name and even the energiser ones are only 1500ma and might work the first few times but then end up making the cam work incorecttly. 2700ma abtteries are the way to go.

Camera Stuck with lens out. Beeps


I dropped the camera on the table a couple of times, twisted the front of it. Suddenly the lens retracted into the camera, the beeping quit, and now I can take pictures again. The Samsung website is horrible.

Samsung S630 camera says "low battery" then shuts off


This camera needs rechargeable batteries usually lasts about a week with much use. I thought what a waste of batteries then tried these rechargable and the situation hasn't occured . it is probably because it is small digtal camera which uses alot of power.

Power on problem


Batteries are probably dead. Try getting rechargable batteries since Samsung S630 really drains batteries.

Camera not working


This might be because you have to change your battery settings. Go to the options and change the battery settings to Nlmh for rechargeable batteries.

Won't take a picture


There is a Battery Type setting in the Menu of your camera.

Do the following:
- Press Menu/ Ok button
- Go to Set Up 2 (icon looks like a wrench with number 2 on it)
- Scroll down to Battery Type

Under Battery Type, there are two options:
- Alkaline- if you are using non- rechargeable battery
- NiMH- if you are using rechargeable battery

Wont stay on


You probably don't have the batteries fully charged up. Also you will need to change battery type from alkaline to metal hydride in the "wrench2"(the last icon on the menu) menu. You did get metal hydride rechargeable batteries??? If you got nickel-cadmium rechargeables that might also be your problem with your camera as they don't have enough power.
