Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

I have a Samsung TL220 digital camera. Every time I try to turn it on, it will open, beep, and close back. I thought it could be the battery, so I ordered a new one. I'm still having the same prob


From the description provided the problem is in the systems control board, this the brains of the camera and controls vital area's of the device. My sense is to replace the camera, unless it was expensive then have it assessed.

My samsung TL220 i dropped it won't power on or anything


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on (no power, no lights, no noise, nothing) are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

But if there is some electrical activity, then you're more likely experiencing a lens error. In that case, see this article.

My samsung tl220 takes blurry far away pictures. how do i fix that?


As this is such a common problem I hope that you don't mind me pasting my generic answer below; there's no point in reinventing the wheel :-)

You have probably left your camera set to "macro" mode. This is used to focus closer than the lens can usually do and when in use the lens cannot focus on infinity (distant objects). If there's no button or menu item labelled "macro" the standard icon for it is a picture of a flower with the stem and two leaves.

Please report back if this free answer doesn't work and I will research a model-specific answer for you (also free), but if I have fixed your problem then please let me know by rating my answer.

Samsung TL220 storage issue


If you format the camera without the memory card inserted, the internal memory should be erased. Then, making sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position, insert the card and format it. Things should work after that. If they still don't, go into the camera menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions.
