It sounds like your battery is good, but make sure it's charged all the way, and then try it. It sounds like the lens can either be stuck, the gears that drive it out can be bad, or some sand or dirt is making it stick. First thing to try is some compressed air. Blow it in the front of the lens assembly, in hopes of freeing up the gears. If the doesn't work, you can try to gently pull on the lens as you power it up, hoping to engage the gears. Since the unit is making a noise, it is trying to extract the lens, and may just need a little help. If none of these things work, the unit will have to be disassembled and repaired. A broken or stripped gear inside the lens assembly is usually fixed by replacement of the whole assembly, since it isn't labor conducive to take the assembly apart to replace one tiny gear. If you have tried all the suggestions, and want to have it repaired, get an estimate first. The cost of repair can easily exceed the replacement cost of a new camera. Here is an excellent blog about a lens error, and although it's on a different camera, the symptom and problem are the same. It lists all the things you can try to free it up, but it also lists some things that might work, but could possibly further damage the camera. Only try them if you decide not to have it serviced.

Good luck, and hope this helps. They say about 50% of the lens problems can be fixed trying their suggestions.

My samsung PL50 camera: i havent used my camera in a while but i bought a new charger, it is full charged and i can browse the pictures, but as soon as i press the on button the lense trys to move but will...


OK, the lens assembly has failed causing a shutdown error. So, technically, the camera is trash because it would WAY more expensive to fix that one than to just buy a new one. NOW, read carefully. When you power on the camera, watch when the lens tries to come out. You'll notice that the shutter on the lens opens first then it pokes out a bit then goes back in and shuts down. If you time it right, you can slip your fingernail under where the shutter is and "assist" the lens out more. dont pull too hard because you'll rip the fron of the lens assembly off. but once it is able to go past this point, 9 times out of 10, it fixes the problem entirely and the camera works just fine after that.

The lens on my L730 digital camera does not open.


Hi, I had exact the same problem with mine Samsung L730. I opened it and took the 2 flatcables from the circuit board (to the lens-unit) out of there connectors. After I put them back in again, the camera worked. I geuss it was a bad electric connection of the lens-unit. Maybe this will solve your problem. If the camera is older than 1 year and has no warrenty, just try this. Good luck.

Lens stuck, green Power light flashes, nothing happens.


get a butter knife or any thin object like that and use it to push out the lens and turning it on at the same time  you will hear a clicking noise which is normal  once completely out, use your hand with a gentle but firm presure move it form left to right 
and then hopefully it should work after that

Samsung Digimax V4 Power Consumption


I had similar symptoms as well until it finally died: 1) First started eating batteries like crazy, especially standard AA and rechargeables. The CRV3 seemed to work a bit longer. 2) One day out of nowhere the autofocus stopped working. I replaced the batteries and it worked again for 10 shots. Then the autofocus stopped working and battery died (with the lens stuck open). Pressing power, the LCD backlight flashes on, the LED in the view finder blinks, and the lens motor makes noise. Then nothing just stuck open. 3) Again new batteries and was able to close lens, take a few pictures and dead again with lens stuck open - same problem in 2. 4) Replaced the batteries a couple times and was able to get a shot or two off, and now its complete stuck open, even with brand new batteries - with same problem in 2 it just won't turn on. I finally sent it to Samsung the week of Christmas. I called Friday 1/7/05 to check and had to leave a voicemail. They called back Monday 1/10/05 to let me know they recieved it and that I should call back Thursday to check its status.
