Sometimes the camera locks up when taking a photo on auto setting. the image freezes on the lcd and nothing works, the camera also wont turn off the only way to rectify is to remove the batteries. Sometimes when taking a photo the red beam stays on and the camera locks up with no lcd.

Don't know if this is the problem but is the camera set on the right setting.
I had a problem whereby the pics were showing like duotones but then found the setting dial had moved when it was put into its case after use. When re-used I did not check to see if it was on the auto setting hence the problem!!
The Samsung S1050 is very battery hungry - make sure you use very fresh new batteries, rechargeable are great - the higher the mAh rating the better. I use Intec rechargeable batteries which are rated at 2900 mAh. If you do use rechargeables, you will have to set the appropriate menu setting for battery type to reflect the type of batteries used.
ok, i had a similar problem
I had normal batteries in there... cheap ones... and accidentally set the battery type to NiMh in the camera settings... it wouldnt turn on after that. Make sure you try NiMh batteries in case that might be your problem.
Another thing i have noticed (may be just my camera) is that it doesnt want to work if its cold....
