Question about Samsung Digimax A7 Digital Camera
When I turn the camera on the lens shutter will not open and the lens
does not move out I have tried fully charged 2500 rechargable batteries
with no avail this camera is a little over a year old but has not been
used that much at all about 6 or 7 times
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!
