Re: camera wont turn on

The camera may in fact be hung in voice recording mode, or may in fact have a low voltage error or internal failure. Suggest that you follow this routine. 1 remove batteries and press the on button, nothing should happen. Allow camera to sit for five minutes. 2 remove memory card if one is installed into camera. 3 install two fresh batteries in camera and attempt to power it on. 4. once on set the time and date. attempt to take a photo. then cycle the camera off. Once again power it on and see if the settings remain intact. If it is working then power off and insert the memory card and test again. I have found that allowing the camera batteries to run low and die in the camera cause a series of problems like the one that you have. Always use rechargable batteries of the Nickel metal hydride construction in this camera. This is the only known reliable power source for this camera. Note: camera instructions for this model can not be found on the samsungusa site and you will have to go to to find instructions for this older model.

Re: camera wont turn on

The beeping noise and automatic shutoff happens in two cases. Either the batteries are dead and it won't turn on, or the lens is stuck. My batteries were fully charged and it still wouldn't turn back on, so I tried moving the lens and it clicked back into place. Put in charged batteries and now it works fine.

The camera turns on and seems to operate normally but the lcd display is black and the pictures are black. If I review older picures the lcd display is fine.

Time to clean the battery slot. Take a Q-Tip "dampened" in rubbing alcohol and clean the battery contacts within the compartment. Be careful not to snag the small battery ejection spring toward the outer edge. It a good idea to wear a magnifying headset while doing this. Do the same to the battery and the charging station.

Wont take a picture unless I turn off the flash

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Digimax samsung s500 beeps 3 times lens stuck wont stay on

Mine got stuck with lens out. The batteries were new so I never imagined it could be the batteries, but they were cheap ones so I recharged a pair of good ones and once I put tried them on it worked just fine again. Conclusion, the "new" cheap batteries had only enough energy to turn it on and then they couldn't give it enough energy to make it work anymore and that's why I couldn't retract the lens or even turn it off properly. So in your case, try using a couple of good and new batteries.

It wont turn on, And the zoom is extended.

I had exactly the same problem. Lens stayed open, when powered on you get three beeps and nothing. I found when I pulled the lens out a little harder it gave a little click. When I powered on it worked perfectly.
