First check to see if it's a power issue. Try different types of batteries one that will turn it on. The problem could be that the battery type setting on the camera is different then the type you are trying to use.

Samsung digimax s700 gives 3 beeps and turns off


The Samsung digimax takes standard AA batteries (but you already new that). The beeps sound like a flat battery warning.

A lot of reviews of this camera note its very high drain on batteries. Are you using good quality AA batteries (for example Duracell M3 or Energizer lithiums)?

If you are trying to run it with "very inexpensive" alkalines (or worse yet - common zincs), then you may proceed directly to flat battery warning, as they cannot provide enough sustained current to run it.

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

Sounds like a power issue. Make sure you use the recommended batteries. Also, some cameras have settings to where you need to change it in accordance to the type of batteries you are using. exp. alkaline, ni'mh, etc.

Camera will not stay on.....


the 3 beeping sound means that the camera has low battery capacity. the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one:
-turn the camera on
-click on Menu button
-select options using left/right, up/down button
-select Set up 2
-Select Battery type
-Select Alkaline for non-rechargable
or Ni-MH for rechargable
-click OK button

this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.

Camera turns on for three seconds, beeps three times, then stops.


It's the optical zoom. The motor that pushes it in and out died.

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!
