    I feel this camera needs a lot battery power. Alkaline batteries are not so good for this cam. Should be OK with NIMH batteries.

    One of the bad product of Samsung.

    I have the exact same problem for my samsung s85. the green LED turns on and it beeps three times. New batteries does not fix the problem, there's no explanation for it in the manual and so far the only help a search online has gotten me is this page and the answer really wasn't any help either

    I am having the same issue, I wonder if the manufacturers ever come to these websites. Given how many others have had this issue, Samsung should issue a recall.

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!

    Oops. That should have been AA batteries, not AAA. Sorry.

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.

Wont turn on, new batteries, green light just blinks.


Make sure you are using the correct batteries, and that they are installed correctly. Some cameras require more powerful kinds of batteries and will not work with the cheaper kinds.
A blinking light can mean something is wrong with the power, not enough or something else.
If you have a power adapter or can get one, you may try that, to see if the camera will work without batteries. If it does, then some problem exists in the battery circuit.

My Samsung won't turn on :(


Try to move the lens a bit or straighten it out, that usually works when it makes the three beep sounds.

Samsung S85 problem


I have had similar symptoms that seem to be due to battery power.
Using and OHM meter I find that the Samsung S85 eats batteries. If the charge drops to 1.4 something volts from a 1.5+ volt battery, the camera does not function properly.
The camera is nice an compact ... but I need to carry the same volume in batteries to make sure I can use it.

Camera won't turn on


Plug it into the charger, then remove the battery. Disconnect is and then insert the battery/ That may reset it.

This also sometimes happens when a camera is dropped and the lens assembly is tweaked just a bit. Point it to your face and turn it on. Press on different places on the lens assembly while you toggle it off and on. If it comes out, your lens unit is out of line. You can try moving it side to side and even forcing it a little but it will probably never be just right.
