Question about Samsung Digimax S1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Samsung digimax s1000 turned on before, lens came out then shut off.power light blinks when you try to turn it on. but will not turn back on. lights up only when button pressed. tried different batteries. Using N-Mi Rechargeable batteries. Tried with sd card Worked fine the day before. But, it looks like the lens did not come all the way out and the first lens is at an angle to the second. Gears stuck maybe? Don't remember interfering with the lens when it was turned on. If it's the gears being stuck, can it be fixed or should I get a new camera?

I am assuming the camera is out of warranty. If it is less then 12 months old have it repaired by the manufacturer. If your still having issues then it is most likely you are better off just purchasing a replacement camera. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Thank you,
Lee

My samsung l830 camera lens is stuck open and when i press the power button it beeps 3 times and remains blue then does nothing


If the lens on the camera is stuck out, look to see if it's a little crooked. If it is, try to gently straighten it. If it still won't retract, try to gently push it in as you turn the power on.
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!

Camera turns off when shutter button is pressed.


[source]Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera[/source]
Try replacing batteries (high Ah photographic type).
The lens motor & electronics may be draining power if Ah capacity has dropped too low. At night, it could be that your flash is trying to fire (another drain), or shutter timer / mirror staying open longer.

My samsung digimax s800 won't turn on,the batterys are ok


the lens mechanism is not initialising, the cogs that move the lens are out of alignment slightly. you colud try and fix this yourself by taking the camera apart and realigning it manually, or sometimes you can get hold of the prodtruding lens and gently pull, be carefull !! you might hear a grinding noise as you pull this is just the main lens cog turning. once fully out put batterys back in and give it a go

Digimax L60 issue


When I turn my l60 on, the lens doesn't open all the way. Usually I just use my finger to help it along... then earlier tonight I turned on the camera again to take pictures and all I had was a white screen. I took out the battery.. then the sd card, nothing worked.

I later came online and searched for solutions.. seems this is a common problem for other cameras as well.. I tried their methods.. they say to hold the camera and just tap on it.. I tapped on the Samsung logo a few times.. the white screen was still there.. and I gave up, turned the camera back off... then decided to try again, turned it on and now I have my lcd screen working again. O_o *shrugs* I'm not going to question how it got fixed, I just hope I don't get this problem again.

Will not turn on


Sounds like your lens is stuck. Try a gentle tug and it should open all the way. Then you can power your camera down.

It dont turn on


I had the same problem. Try to turn it on, 3 beeps and then it would shut down. Screen would come on for that time. Also, the lens was stuck open. It wouldn't close.

I twisted the lens (gently) and it appeared stuck. A gentle screw motioned seemed to free it. I hit the power button and it come on, but this time no 3 beeps and shut down. I then turned it off and this time the lens retracted and closed.

So, it appears that if the lens gets stuck open, it has a shut down feature that doesn't allow the camera to go further into its operation modes. I believe this stuck open problem occured on our camera when the batteries went low.

Again, a second of gentle twisting seemed to unstick it and with fresh batteries in, it was able to operate and shut down properly.

As far as batteries, I use the rechargeable Ni-Cad 2500 mA. They last a while.

Blessings to you!

Green Light Blinks But Does'nt Turn On...


It sounds as though your lens is jammed. The clicking sound is likely the camera trying to open the lens and failing, then it turns itself off. Check with your manufacturer for recalls and technical bullitins. See if they will service the camera under warranty. If you cannot get it serviced economicly at the factory there are repair services on the internet who will work on your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
