    the camera doesn't stay on long enough for me to change in the menu options. I use rechargeable batteries, and its showing a full charge, but continues to beep 3 times and shuts off.

  • carajuleen Feb 02, 2008

    okay, I thank you for your assistance, but I'm unsure how the lense got stuck. I don't remember ever dropping it. the battery and lense problem happened at the same time, so I just figured the lense was out when the camera died.

    please reply to what i asked. only then i can move further with the problem..

    so please cooperate..

    thank you

  • dewan nafees ahmed Feb 02, 2008

    ya ok. first off all let me make you one thing clear. there is very less chance of lens getting stuck due to new battery.



    lens get stuck due only one reason mostly.

    its when the camera gets turned ON with out your knowledge when it is inside your camera pouch or when it is inside some kind of bag or something. this may happen without your knowledge. and its not a new problem. when ever camera turns ON its lens comes out. and when it is stopped by some obstacle like your bag it gets stuck. new user of all digital camera with a optical zoom get this problem while they start using the camera.



    this is the issue i think off. and so for solving(service) it they charge 1800rupees in india here. 39 rupees = 1$. so that is the amount.



    when ever the lens system is being repaired. this is the standard cost incured. because when i went to replace my digi cams battery cover they showed me many cams with the "lens stuck" problem.



    and hence go ahead with full confidence.



    thank you

Hi,

Cameras belonging to the S Series really do have a battery type option that needs to be set up first for proper power connection.

Recommended batteries are just:
- Alkaline (Non-rechargeable)
- Nickel-metal Hydride (Rechargeable)

Just the proper battery type by:

- Pressing MENU/OK button
- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Keep on scrolling down and look for battery type
- Press the right button to pick up on 2 options
like Alkaline and Ni-MH
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved
- Keep pressing MENU/OK to get out of the MENU

Once, it's done, camera needs to be turned off for a few seconds
so that settings made will be refreshed with the camera.

As you turn camera on, you're now ready to take many pictures.

ALKALINE (Non-rechargeable) batteries when set to the correct battery type will really take a maximum of 100 pictures.

For the Rechargeable batteries (Ni-MH), when those are fully charged, and the battery type is set to Ni-MH, it will be taking more than a hundred of course.

I hope this help you a lot.

For the lens problem you can try the below method:

Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on.
Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Fix #3: Insert the cameras AV cable, and turn the camera on in picture review mode. Have no idea why this would work, except that quite a few people have reported some success with it.

Fix #4: Place the camera flat on its back on the kitchen table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.

Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum cleaner.

Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. Take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables.

Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. Many people have also reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include pulling, pushing, rotating or twisting on the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the lens barrel side that has the largest gap. While doing these, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

    If the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues.



    You could still try these steps below:



    First, do the POWER RESET:

    - Turn off camera
    - Remove batteries for a minute
    - Reload batteries
    - Turn on camera



    Second, do the MASTER RESET
    - Press on MENU button
    - Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
    - Scroll down until you see RESET
    - Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
    - Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved
    - Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed



    Third, you could try cleaning the lens with a soft clean cloth.

    Make sure you are wiping gently.



    Fourth, try to take a picture using this way:

    - Press and hold the shutter button halfway first for 3-5 seconds,

    and then press it all the way down



    Fifth, if it still does the same thing, then your camera needs to be repaired by a technician.



    If you want to know where you could send it, just call the hotline of
    the manufacturer of your product so you could get assistance

    about this matter.

My camera has a "lens error". It will not contract back and stays out in zoom...it beeps and gives me this message to start, but doesn't do anything.


Hi,

The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended.


1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

2.
Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera.

Thank you !!

Error message: "Lens error, restart camera" unable to get it to work Have powered on & off several times. Also removed batteries and powered on several times all to no avail.


There are 2 fixes I know for this you can try.


1. Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

2. If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. You don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the sd card and turn it on one last time.

Samsung S1065 beeps 3 times and nothing else


If you have recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens tube (housing). This damage will prevent the lens from moving properly and will cause the camera to shut itself off after a few seconds. If the lens is damaged the camera will require professional repair. If the lens is not damaged, the problem may be battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

The power supply get drops


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A few ideas that you can consider/try:
  • make sure the batteries are fresh/fully charged;
  • clean the battery terminals of the camera;
  • in some instances, it may be needed that these terminals be scrapped/scratched to remove corrosion/oxidation and expose fresh metal;
  • at times, it may even require that these contacts be stretched/bended so as they offer stronger pressure to the batteries.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I had something similar happen after five minutes. The included batteries are crap, try some rechargeables or brand new alkaline. Be warned this camera likes to eat alkalines but does well with nimh.

The batteries need to be changed. The digital batteries sold at the stores die out too fast. I had this same problem. In result, I purchased rechargeable battieries.
