Remove battery and remove the memory . Reset the battery back after about 10 minutes. When the battery is put back , press power on and hold. If the display does not come on or the camera shuts off, remove battery and check for the voltage and current factor of the battery, if possible the battery must be checked out with another set as a low current factor on the battery can,make the battery switch off in this manner.
Or test the battery to power any device to ensure that the amperage is present.
However if the battery is good and the camera is still shutting down it needs a closer look. Open the set only if equipped or experienced as it will bettter to get this sorted out with the help of an Olympus service centre because even if the power board is identified, the spares cannot be sourced but by them. so call up the nearest centre , get an estimation,decide and set over.

I have a Pentax k1000, and was given a few vivitar and olypus lenses. They do not fit the camera. What can I do?????


Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Lenses with the Pentax K-mount can be used on the K1000, lenses with other mounts can not.

Olympus lenses will not mount onto a Pentax camera.

You can sell the lenses, give them to someone with the appropriate camera(s), or use them as paperweights.

Zoomes lense wont come back in and the camera beeps 3 times and shuts off when you try to turn it on.


I would check the batteries and also try to reset the camera.
If that doesn't work, the camera needs to be sent back to Samsung.com for repairs.

Beeps about 3 times and turns off. lense wont retract


Your problem may be due to a weak/worn out battery or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your battery may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Our Camera was dropped and the lense was out while it was dropped. The lense now appears to be bent in a downward direction and wont retract in or out. The camera did a series of beeps and turned off. Now...


I had a similar problem with my FE 280. I just used a pair of plyers and gently straighten the lens and it works fine. You are going to pay to fix it more than the camera is worth so no harm in trying

I dropped my camera and now when turning camera on the shutter comes out for about 2 seconds then it beeps and then it goes back in, I can view photos but not take any.


The most of cases problems is your camera lense wont come out properly. it's appear to be a electronic problem but it's defenetly a mechanical problem. do do as i say. turn on your camera and after lense came out quickly remove the battery. after that camera lense move out shake it well. shake your camera well. your target should be remove if ther any blocking thing the way your camera lense come out. if this way wont work you have to open your camera and check your mechanism. some time it can be broken lense.

I have a polaroid i733 camera and the lense is out and it makes 3 beeps and wont turn on how can I fix this


My Son's camera had the same problem. 3 beeps and
it would turn off with the lens out. I think it must have
been dropped, he says no! Look carefully at your lens
and see if it looks crooked. If it is like his was, pull it out
a bit to straighten it out. His is working fine now!

Turns on four beeps and it shuts down


I was all over this site and the only solution was to send it into repair for the "4 beeps and shut off" problem. I found another site that talked about lense errors, and one of their suggestions was to take the camera, lense up, smack it into your other hand (not too hard) (screen down toward your receiving hand) while the lense was out. You have to be fast, because when you power on, the lense comes out, and you have about 2 seconds to do it. My first light smack, and the camera came alive again! They also talked about lightly tweaking the lense while it was out in case it fell off track or skipped a tooth, but that wasn't my problem apparently!
