Question about Samsung S850 Digital Camera
My camera has this green light that blinks then it makes beeping noises and turns off. I tried new batteries. I dont know what to do about it.
My daughter has a Samsung S850, and returned from a weekend trip last night. She pressed the "Power" button and the blue light next to the button came on, as did the screen. The camera then gave a "buzzy beep" three times and shut-down. She decided the batteries were low and replaced them with ordinary AAA alkaline batteries, nothing special, and got the same result.
This morning I checked the voltage on the new and old batteries with a volt-ohm meter and found the old ones were low but the new ones were good.
I read this site and saw a comment that the camera worked after the lens was worked a little bit.
Upon a close look at the lens, I could see tiny grains of sand around the outside of the glass, so I got a wooden toothpick and gently worked the sand out with plenty of tapping on a solid surface to drop them from the area. I also worked the tip of a clean toothpick under what appears to be a soft rubber sealing ring on the outer surface of the glass.
After all this, when the "Power" button was pushed, the lens moved out and the screen lighted, and all the camera now seems to be working.
I should add that shortly after my daughter bought the camera, she lost some kind of metal or plastic ring from around the lens, and that left the "works" around the lens open to view: I can see two tiny screws the lens that are probably ordinarily covered.
Is the lens supposed to be covered by a curtain when power is off? From what I see, the lens is always uncovered. Maybe that lost ring held something else!

Cameras beep when it has a problem. most likely the lens get stuck or lens gear failed or motor drive gear to lens, or allot of other problems like it doesnt reconize the optical sensor.
look online for the beep codes and problems.
hope I helped
