It works fine when I use it to view pictures. You'll even see that the battery is still "full." But when you turn it on to take pictures, it beeps and then switches off. I don't know if it's a battery problem because as I said it works fine when used to view pictures.
I hope you can help me. Thank you! :)

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.
Hi I had exactly the same problem with mine it worked the DVD player fine but not the TV even though previously it had worked both .......... Manual Guide In the manual guide I managed to dig out it says to do the following to set up the remote to work the TV
Press the TV button on the remote Then whilst holding down the power button you need to enter in the samsung TV codes until your TV turns off (I only got to the first and it did it) The numbers are 00, 15, 16, 17, 40, 43, 46, 47, 48, 49, 59, 60, 98
an idea passed over my head just now
was the camera droped
was the camera exposed to heat
was the camera exposed to static electricity
was the camera exposed to water or liquids
if these or other things happened to camera
the shutter inside camera has malfunctioned due to the reasons
Are you using NiMH rechargable batteries? Digital caemras are real battery eaters and Nickel Metal Hydride batteries are the only ones that can stand up to the drain. Buy ones with the highest power rating yu can get. If this doesn't help, then the power board has started to fail and needs replacing.
Are you certain the batteries are good and fully charged. They do wear out eventually.
Hopefully it's not a jammed lens causing the problem. Does the display come up with an error number or maybe even "lens error" before switching off? If it does it will mean a trip to the camera doctor.
How far are you actually getting with the switch on? Try switching to view picture instead of the shoot mode. This consumes less power and if you can see the last picture you took on the LCD or even a flash of it before closedown I'd put my money on bad batteries.
Make sure the battery ends are clean and the camera battery contacts aren't corroded or dirty. It's sometimes amazing how trouble a little dirt can cause.
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.
