    Hello - I have the same problem. and the camera emits 3 loud bleeps - any ideas?

  • DeniseKiv Mar 14, 2008

    I have the exact same problem. Every other time I press the power button all I get is 3 beeps other than that - nothing. My brother said it's probably because it's just out of the warranty - typical. Please help

    Another person here with the same problem - The camera is just over 1 year old - Tried new batteries etc - Still no joy - Just get the 3 beeps and the the camera powers down - Can't seem to find any support for this on the WEB? - Interested to see if there is a fix?

    Same symptoms... get the beeps ... can pull out lens with finger nails but can't be doing the motor any good. This is the second time this is going back - warranty is one year not 2 I think but presumably I can argeue with PC World under the Consumer Act

This product has a 2 year warranty, unfortunately I lost the original till receipt, but managed to get the transaction details from PC World (I bought it in Dec 2006). The Samsung telephone number for the UK is 00800 12263727 - I have now sent it off to them for repair (recorded delivery) to the service centre at Samsung Opto-Electronics UK Ltd, Samsung House, 1000 Hillswood Drive, Hillswood Business Park, Chertsey, KT16 0PS - On talking to their service team, when the camera "Beeps" 3 times and turns off it is faulty, and will need to be repaired - So no easy fix - It's over to you now!!

This error is due to the lens mechanism being jammed and unable to extended, usually due to dirt or grit getting inside. The motor times out and the camera beeps 3 times before shutting down.
If you are unable to have Samsung fix this under warranty, you can carefully prise the lens out using a feeler gauge while powering the camera on, giving the motor a little help.

I have had my Digimax D103 since December 2006, and it has worked absolutely perfectly eveery time. However, just yesteerday, I turned the camera on, and the viewing screen was half the normal size, and in the bottom right hand corner, a kind of black fogg seemed to have appeared from nowhere. On trying to get the camera to work, the screen went black and displays nothing. It does still take pictures however, though you cannot see what you are framing!

Samsung Digimax D53 will not stay on


This is most likely a lens failure. Try contacting your manufacture if your camera is still under warranty. If not, try contacting your local electronic repair shop to get it fixed. Hope this helps!

I had the same problem - found the answer on another forum: remove battery and memory card, press shutter button twice, replace battery and memory card, and switch on.

Stuck


Could it be that there is something stuck in the lens barrel? Possibly grit of some sort? I would suggest pushing the lens in gently until the front shutter closes, then try to power on again, if this works and the barrel extends try to inspect for dirt in the barrel and get it out.

Will not turn on


Sounds like your lens is stuck. Try a gentle tug and it should open all the way. Then you can power your camera down.

Digimax i6 pmp SHUTTER problems!!!


Congratulations on fixing the problem! However I just wanted to let you and everyone else who reads this solution know that the part which failed on your camera is not actually the shutter. The shutter is deep inside the lens assembly right next to the image sensor. What you were dealing with was simply a protective cover for the lens. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
