Your camera has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Samsung service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

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.

If this response helps, please post a rating for me. A rating of "Very Helpful" would be appreciated . .

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.

The camera beeps 3 times on startup and then shuts down...


You have dirt trapped in the lense mechanism. use compressed air can to blow it out then turn camera off ans slap it into the palm of your hand a few times and turn on again to test if it has cleared. This is not a joke it actually works. Lots of these types of cameras suffer from this problem and I have fixed them using this method. Passed on By a Canon Tech!!! It certainly worked for mine . Be persistent some work immediately others take several goes of blowing and slapping face down

My samsung L730 lense is stuck


i have the same problem with these camera. to get it fixed just take out the battery wait for a few sec and put the battery back on, then switch the camera on. for the lens just gently move/force the lens to open, then turn off the camera wait for a few seconds then turn on the camera back on see what happens. and if still persist keep doing it till gets back to normal.
this sometimes happens to my camera from time to time i think it just its wear and tear.
one more problem with this camera is that it'll go blurr, just do the basic turn off or take out the battery wait a few sec and then turn it back on.
hope this will help u.

I took it to a camera shop. It cannot be fixed.

Your guy probably figured that out too. He kept the line open for 2 hours before I finally closed the screen. I really don't think his 5 minutes should cost me 14.95.
