I do not see any solutions here... Got this camera for Christmas and it will nt turn on anymore! I have put every kind of battery imaginable in it! PLEASE tell us what the problem is so we can take pictures.
I also fixed the problem but not like u did with the memory card and such,i just twitched the cam linse back in position and then it was allright again :P diff solutions for the same problem eyh ayyh ayhh !! Regards Thomas
I had the same problem. My boyfriend suggested that it had to do with the camera holding a charge after the initial battery failure. He told me to take the batteries and memory card out for 10 minutes or so then try it again. I tried it and it worked like new. =)

Everytime I try to turn it on, the lens comes out for about a second,
the camera beeps 3 times, the lens retracts and the camera shuts off.
The battery is completely charged and the camera is only 4 months old.
Here is the solution for your problem. If you look at your camera at an angle, you will see the zoom lens is little bent to the side. I want you to put pressure on the cam to snap-it into it's place. After you heard a click, then turn-on your camera. This will fix your cam.
try to put regular batteries in it to reset it and if it turn on shut it off and take out your SD card turn it back on and go to the menu screen and format it and then reset it, it should work after that if not all i can say to do is to send it in to sansung and have them fix it.
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.
As i've posted with many other problems like this, ensure you aren't using alkaline batteries. I have had similar problems with Samsung cameras before. The one I was using behaved much better on rechargeables or oxyride disposable batteries. It's nuts that this one was supplied with a pair of alkalines in the box :(
