    My HP Photosmart 537 digital cam is experiencing a similar problem. When powering up, it beeps and makes a small noise up front(a plastic gear to gear grind type noise) and a message on the back says LENS ERROR Turn Cam off and on again....Error Code M537-033

    I did what they suggested by off and on agin with no new result. I have also changed the batteries.

My camera samsung when turned on , the lens out and log in again and power then die

Suspect battery - won't hold a charge. Go to Walmart, borrow a replacement battery that is charged, and test the camera - if no issues with borrowed battery, purchase a new one. Enjoy.
DO NOT force the lens in or out, the gears are tiny and very fragile - another possibility, if the lens moves and then stops and the power dies - gears are jammed or broken. But go for the battery test first. Good luck.

Screen colour distorted

Your monitor needs to be replaced more than likely.

Try using another monitor to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor shows the distorted colors, then your video card inside the computer is bad.

If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same as your original monitor, then the video card inside the computer is bad.

On the small viewing screen on the top right corner, and when looking through the view finder bottom middle, I get a capital F with 2 small dashes afterwards flashing, when the camera is switched on, and...

The issue is in the contact point between your camera body and whatever lens you are using. When the lens is screwed on to the camera it is not contacting the body; the camera essentially doesn't think a lens is present.

You can rectify this a few different ways:
1) Remove the lens and put it back on. Make sure to twist tightly so the contact is tight.
2) Take a pencil eraser to the small contacts to clean them off
3) If that doesn't fix the issue try another lens (borrow from a friend if needed). If the problem goes away you know the contacts on the lens need adjustment through the manufacturer.
4) Lastly, if 1-3 do not work. Send your camera body to the manufacturer to get the contacts fixed.

When i push the power button on my camera the lens just moves inward and outward and then shuts off and when i plug my battery in to charge it doesnt charge

Sounds like its time to replace the battery to me, the only other way to find out for free is to borrow a battery from a willing friendly soul and trying that out first.
