    So any answer for the 3 beeps? Are your lenses out? Mine is and the batteries were dead when I found it... New batteries only produces 3 beeps... Calling Samsung for advice gets the request to send it in for repairs... So off it goes.

I figured out the fix:
Take the batteries out, put them back in and close the battery cover. Next, turn on the camera and before it can finish the three beep sequence, open up the battery cover(disconnecting the battery power). Close the battery cover (reconnecting the batteries) and switch on the camera. It may take a couple of tries, but it seems to be a "poor man's reset"

I had the three beeps problem also and was told to remove the batteries for about a minute and turn it on and it worked.

Samsungs are notorious for needing s**t hot batteries I would suugest trying these first before assuming the camera is faulty : Lithium Batteries or 2500mah NiMh rechargeables

Samsung S85 camera wont turn on. When the power button is pressed the green light flashes and the camera beeps three times than turns off. how do i fix it?


I quote the solution posted for another expert about this same problem...
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My daughter has a Samsung S850, and returned from a weekend trip last night. She pressed the "Power" button and the blue light next to the button came on, as did the screen. The camera then gave a "buzzy beep" three times and shut-down. She decided the batteries were low and replaced them with ordinary AAA alkaline batteries, nothing special, and got the same result.

This morning I checked the voltage on the new and old batteries with a volt-ohm meter and found the old ones were low but the new ones were good.

I read this site and saw a comment that the camera worked after the lens was worked a little bit.

Upon a close look at the lens, I could see tiny grains of sand around the outside of the glass, so I got a wooden toothpick and gently worked the sand out with plenty of tapping on a solid surface to drop them from the area. I also worked the tip of a clean toothpick under what appears to be a soft rubber sealing ring on the outer surface of the glass.

After all this, when the "Power" button was pushed, the lens moved out and the screen lighted, and all the camera now seems to be working.

I should add that shortly after my daughter bought the camera, she lost some kind of metal or plastic ring from around the lens, and that left the "works" around the lens open to view: I can see two tiny screws the lens that are probably ordinarily covered.

Is the lens supposed to be covered by a curtain when power is off? From what I see, the lens is always uncovered. Maybe that lost ring held something else!

Hello i have a samsung camera model S85 and when i try to turn it on it does 3 beeps and doesnt even turn on.


Assuming you've tried the obvious test of using new batteries, it's unfortunately likely to be the infamous "lens error". This is such a common problem that someone has written a blog just addressing this one error. You can read it here - it describes it far more completely than I ever could!

Also, check this post.

Turn on the power and the camera beeps 3 times?


hmmm... accesses the card ok? 3 beeps on a computer is a memory thing... might try a differnt SD card... Otherwise, probably is trash, cameras are so cheap that having a shop repair them is just not worth it.

Peace,

We have a Samsung S85 and the lens is sticking. It either will not go in or will not come out without effort on our part. when it is stuck it beeps 4 times and shuts off. What can we do to fix this?...


You can try with fully charged batteries. If this does not help, you may need to take it to a camera repair shop or buy a new one.

Overall there have been issues with the S85, as the lens gives a problem. Lubricating can be a good idea but you should not use any liquid that can not evaporate, however the best idea woudl be to go to the nearest Samsung dealer and have it checked.

If it won't turn on (the green light blinks and it beeps 3 times) push and hold the 'power' button and the 'play' button at the same time for a few seconds - it worked for my S730. Good luck!

Samsung S85 problem


I have had similar symptoms that seem to be due to battery power.
Using and OHM meter I find that the Samsung S85 eats batteries. If the charge drops to 1.4 something volts from a 1.5+ volt battery, the camera does not function properly.
The camera is nice an compact ... but I need to carry the same volume in batteries to make sure I can use it.

My samsung s85 camera indicated low battery condition. I replaced the batteries with new/fresh AA batteries. When I turn on the camera, the camera starts normally, then beeps three times and shuts itself...


For the small sum of only $9.98 you can purchase my experts method of fixating the problem that fix-yore-**** wouldn't do. What a scam.

The fix is simple and effective and you can get it quickly for 10.99 in addition to the base price of only 9.98 and have yore dream fix right before yore very ****..

email me personally at : jack@oath.com

if you are for real, I'll tell you the simple fix. If you are fixya, eat me

Camera not working - S85 Digital Samsung Camera


If you've had the rechargeable batteries for a long time, they can wear out. I would try getting some new rechargeable batteries or try some lithium batteries in your camera. They're a little more expensive but they're the best for digital devices and they last a little longer.

Try a different brand of batteries. I found that my Samsung S85 went completely bonkers with some (unbranded) Nimh batteries I had. I switched to Engergizers and it's been fine ever since.

Also go into the camera settings and see if you have an option for which type of battery you are using (Nimh vs Alkaline).
