Beeping, bad noises, then turns itself off

My camera worked fine up til does some loud beeping sounds. I just put newly charged rechargeable batteries in it and now it at least powers on but does this terrible noise in the left part if the screen is facing me and it beeps more then shuts off.

    I got this camera for Christmas 2006.

    In April of last year, I went to turn it on, and the screen didn't turn on, but the green light did. It beeped 3 times, and then nothing. I've tried almost every kind of battery, but nothing worked. It didn't work for about 3 months. Then, I try to just turn it on, and it automatically works. But, in August, it started doing the same thing, and it hasn't worked since. HELP?

If you have a retractable lens then that could be causing the problem. The beeps is letting you know that it's wrong and it shut off as a safe guard. So the noise you are hearing is the motor and gears for the lens.

Sounds like the ac adapter could be putting out the wrong voltage.The battery itself most likely wouldn't cause your problem but the voltage problem may not have a bearing if the battery isn't pulling voltage trying to charge.Also the charging board may be bad or going bad causing a hardware conflict when the battery is inserted as well.

Lenc cover will not open

This can be caused by several different situations. Most commonly the camera has experienced some kind of impact which knocks an element out of alignment, preventing the lens from rotating normally. Symptoms of this include: *you may hear no mechanical sound at all when the camera is turned on *you may see visibly mis-aligned components of the lens *you may hear a loud "snap snap" sound as the camera tries to move the lens when the camera is powered on The second most common cause is a particle of sand getting stuck in the focus motor drive gears. This prevents the focus element from moving normally and causes the camera to shut off to prevent damage to the lens assembly. Symptoms of this include: *A loud "buzzing" sound when the camera is turned on, followed by the beeping and shutdown. Finally the third most common cause of this problem is a broken tooth on the zoom motor drive gears. Symptoms of this include: *the sound of the running motor with a regular "click click click" sound for several seconds. This will not be a "snap snap" sound, that is a different problem. *the lens will move in and out easily by hand as if free from any resistance. All of these problems require disassembly to repair. The charge is around $125 labor at my shop.

Lens is stuck so Camera does not turn on

The battery packs in these units dont have a very long "shelf life" meaning when you charge the battery you need to use it within a few days or it will loose charge. Have you tried a fresh charged battery? They are very power hungry devices and the more advanced they get the more power they need. How old is this unit? how many charges have you put on the pack? it may be time for a second pack. An emergency backup pack good power is key nowdays.
