Hello there,

Are you sure you battery pack is fully charged? If yes then there is a hardware problem on your camera that's why when the system detected that, it automatically shuts itself off. Usually this is caused by a lens error. The camera cannot retract out the lens because there may be a grit of sand or dust build up in between the lens barrel and the camera. Here is what you try to do:

Hold the camera with your right hand with the lens facing the ground. Then hit the camera's base to your left palm as you turn on the camera. This aims to take off that grit and the lens to retract out. You may need to do this several times.

Please let me know how this goes.

Base from the description of your problem this can be an issue with the lens of the camera, first thing that we need to do is to make sure battery is fully charge.

Then power on the camera , Press the Playback button on the back of the camera , the lens should retract and camera should be fine after that but if still same problem try this following steps.

Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button.

Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum .

    Sorry but there's no reset button on this camera and doing those procedure that I provided you and still camera not working, the issue here now is the lens mechanism inside the camera and the only way to correct that is to have the camera dismantle and also clean from inside , and to do that the best thing is to have it check to a service center to avoid further damage.

I have a Samsung TL100 camera and it will not take a charge

If you haven't used it for the last 8 months and before it was all fine then the most common reason would be the battery. Your battery is absolutely dead but then again if you plug it to AC then it must show some sign of life. But give it a go by replacing new battery. To check get it from a friend and then test the camera on it.

If the battery replacement doesn't work then take it to an authorized dealer for inspection.

Why my ST50 Samsung camera cannot work even after battery being charged. If I put on photo taking or video icon it will beep and then it gets turn off. Thanks Helen

It could be a lens error or battery already malfunctioning. Do you get any error message or any message at all before it turns off?

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.

I dropped it while taking a picture onto concrete floor, and now the lens are out but it's turned off and when i try to turn it back on it beeps 3 times and turns itself off, and the batteries are fine.

The lens mechanism is jammed, and any any DIY repair attempts will probably make it worse. The camera needs professional help, so I suggest that you take it to a local camera shop (NOT the camera department in a chain store) or contact Samsung via their web site to arrange repair. Be sure to get a firm price, not just an estimate, before you commit to anything. The price of the fix can approach the cost of a new camera, and repairs typically only carry a 30-day warranty.

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!
