This problem is usually caused by grit in the mechanics of the lense. To resolve the problem:

1. Ensure the lense itself is clear, removing any visible objects.
2. Try tapping / knocking the camera to dislodge any obstruction.
3. Failing this you can force the mechanics by turning the lense sections - however be careful when attempting this as you may snap the lense if turned too hard or the wrong way.

I encountered this issue today while taking a photo of my dog she licked the lens... the LCD screen went all blurry and I was unable to take any photos. The thing kept beeping at me and I was about to throw it in the bin until I had a good look at the lens. As there was a picture coming through on the LCD I knew it wasn't completely stuffed however as the camera couldn't focus an image it gives the unhelpful beeps which apparently translates to clean the lens! So i gave it a clean and presto it was fixed!

Just be careful when u clean it make sure u don't scratch the lens with rough material or use chemicals. Hope it works.

this problem is a is usual occurrence when the camera is not well powered.
ie. the battery might not have enough charge on it or might have gone bad and require you to replacei it.

please ensure you get the battery with right voltage and wattage, the required is usually written around or in the battery compartment.

Dropped my L730 digital camera and since then when viewing pictures taken, there are lines across the screen...?


Sounds like the shutter has been damaged and is stuck open, which overexposes photos and gives a 'venition blind' effect - the shutter and/or lens unit would need to be replaced. Probably marginal given low replacement costs.

Samsung L730 wont extend lens and dosent turn on right


Try removing the batteries and memory card. Let the camera set for awhile. Put the batteries back in but not the memory card, restart the camera. Does it work know? If it does, turn the camera off put the memory card back in. Turn the camera on, does it work now? If it doesn't, replace the memory card.

Met the same problem. I disassembled camera and found a lot of sand in lens transmission. I couldn't move lens even by hand. It was strongly jammed. I had to disassemble lens block completely to remove all sand. Now camera fully functional.

hi meeshfriel,

The battery might be damaged. try recharged the battery at least 2 hours maximum of 4 hours. If the problem persist it is your battery needs to be replaced......

Samsung L730 camera. Is fully charged. Power button is permanently on. Lens locked - can't move in or out. No display


take out the battery wait for a few sec and then put the battery back on, then switch the camera on.
for the lens try to gently force open or close the lens.
this works on my camera. i have the same problems. hope this helps.
