Question about Samsung NV10 Digital Camera
Our Samsung NV10 will turn on but will not take a picture and the lens won't shut. It also beeps 3 times when you turn it on.
The lens is jammed.
This is a result of damage to the gear in the motor asssembly.
The gear teeth have been broken off & as a result the gears that drive the opening& closing of the barrel dont mesh together resulting in the jam and your 4 beeps!!
If your interested in selling it to me let me know.

As the user before said. The lens has stuck, the reason is that one of the gear has some missing teeth.
Probably the gear just next the the lens. that gear is in plastic but the rest of the gears is in metal.
This problem has been fixed in newer models of samsung cameras. If you want to change the gear its easy. The camera has screws, 2 at each side, one on the bottom and one under the flash. Remove those and the front will come loose.
on the top left of the lens you see 2 screws. one on the top and one e little bit lower to the left. unscrew those 2 and then you can easily and carefully open it and there you see the gears. The problem is to find a new gear to buy, i got 2 new gears from a samsung service firm in my neighborhood. Change the part that has been damaged and your camera is back in working order.
I do not take any responsibilty if the fix doesnt work. It worked for me when my lens stuck. The best solution is always a proffesional.

I had the same problem actually... for some reason i decide to give the lens a gentle twist anti-clockwise being that it kinda projects out ,,, it gave a slight pop sound like it got unjammed,.. and surprizingly it started working again ... dont know if it will work for any of u guys... but maybe you can give it a try,,,, at your on risk of course,,, but to be honest dont think it can get any worst if your lens is already jammed,,,,
