The camera is trying to turn on, but either the lens is stuck, causing an overload in an effort to turn the motor that, through gears, extends the lens. That's a common problem, and the 2nd most common problem is that the batteries are not holding enough charge to drive the motor, contacts are dirty, things like that. There are 2 excellent web blogs that detail the problems, and what you can check and try. Here they are:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

    I removed the lens system, and LCD screen. But the problem is still there. This is a very common problem now with many cameras. But the solution given is not correct.

I cannot turn the cameras flash on

I am not sure whether this is a recent problem with your camera or you are trying to use the camera for the first time. I suggest you to look at the user manual. If you dont have one, then download it free from:

In the manual, pages 8 & 9 explains how to set the flash.
If it is a recent problem, then you need to get it repaired. Sometimes, it may be due to a bad capacitor which hold the charge for the flash. It is difficult to replace the capacitor. It is soldered to the inner board. Also, the capacitor hold charge once it is turned on. So it is not advisable to do it yourself unless your are a technical person. You need to discharge the capacitor before you can remove it, else you may get severe electric shock.
The following site explains the capacitor charge:

Please make use of a ggood lens to inspect the shutters, use a good swap to clean. rectify if any mechanical damage. hope this advice helps. Good day

When camera turns on it shows the insignia sign, gives 3 beeps then turns off. What could be the problem?

Hi there 3 beeps means system error. Remove the memory card and try again. If you get the beeps again then the problem occur in Lens. Its stuck from in side. Its happens when the guide pin is damaged or dislocated. In that case you have to visit service center. After remove the card if problem solve then before fix back the card please, format it and use. I hope your problem will solve then. Thanks.

Insignia camera turns on beeps three times and turns back off

Three beeps indicates a low battery or other warning. It also indicates error messages, such as memory full or card error. You should try replacing the batteries, erasing files from the memory, or verifying that your memory card is in the correct format and/or not defective. Additional details can be found in the owner's manual.

My insignia 7.0 megapixel camera model NS-DSC7B09 will

A few things. Make sure the batteries are in the camera correctly.
You could test the camera by using an adapter which is for this camera to see if it will work without the batteries. That will tell you if the camera's circuit can work with out the batteries. If it works the camera needs repairs. If the camera does not work with an adapter, then it needs repair or can be sold for repairs or as is on a site such as Ebay.

Three beeps when i try to turn it on

i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

My Samsung won't turn on :(

Try to move the lens a bit or straighten it out, that usually works when it makes the three beep sounds.

Camera issues:(

I had the same problem, stuck lens, 3 beeps and shutdown. You must get pissed off at the camera first. Then bite the lens, clenching it like pliars (you could probably use pliars too), turn the camera on and immediately start pilling on the lens in the outward direction. The tooth grip unstuck the lens and vot it worked. you can take this solution to the bank.
