Sounds like it might have a messed up the lens. You have some options. Get a one off ebay that has a damaged LCD if your going to repair it yourself. or you can have it repaired it should not cost to much to fix. On those unit it takes about 30 min to change out the lens and test it out. some times less if you are going to try to repair it your self please watch for the flash compasitor. It has a bit of a bite if you touch it.

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.

My camera wont turn on when i hit the button it beeps three timesa and shuts off


low battery or hardware error. three beeps-- that's important-- you can always call the company's 800 number and ask them what 3 beeps means.

Since I assume you tried new batteries, it sounds like hardware failure, especially if it was dropped. Try even newer batteries, or call the company to see if you're under warranty.

E 18 message


Lens errors (E18 errors on Canons) are fairly common. 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 ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Power on n off


sounds like a battery power problem or problem with the terminal of the camera ; you know the point where the battery meets the camera.
I would recommend a service center

Will not turn on


My guess is that your camera has been dropped recently and that the beeping is a result of the lens not extended when powered on. My Mother-in-Law has the same camera exhibiting the same symptoms. I've been able to get it to turn on by slightly pulling on the lens prior to turning it on. One of the plastic gears inside is probably damaged.

A beeping sound???


"IS IT PLUGGED IN?" How many times have we heard THAT anecdote, yet it can be so true. You replaced the batteries - good - but did you do this more than once, just to be sure the "new" batteries were good? Better still, use freshly-charged RECHARGABLE batteries. A battery without enough "juice" CAN cause the symptoms you mention. If these don't work, SOME of the Digimax cameras have a RESET button on the bottom. Consult the manual, or simply look at the camera base. These cameras are an OUTSTANDING value, and tend to be very durable. But, if it's broken, it'll be less expensive to buy a new one. GOOD LUCK!
