Take a broomstraw and stick up your ***** Cindy. Next, crack the case open with a nutcracker. You should then be able to see the gears. At this point, spray in WD40 until everything is coated. Re-assemble the case, and then use the broomstraw to poke out your eye.

Camera will not come on but green light flashes and camera makes three beeping sounds. Already changed batteries and still same thing when powered on. What could be causing this problem?

The reason why your Samsung Digimax S500 camera beeps 3 times and shuts down is because the internal workings of the telescoping / retracting lens barrels may be damaged beyond reasonable repair, of the casual user, and the internal circuitry senses the malfunction.

And to open up and attempt to service any digital camera, with an electronic flash, is a dangerous proposition. The Samsung Digimax S500, for example, has an internal 320 Volt, 110 microfarad photo-flash capacitor that, if accidentally touched, would hit you like a stun gun. In fact, I had to discharge the capacitor by bridging two soldered contacts (just to the upper-left and upper-right of the "53", of the "STS2-53-SR" printed on the internal circuit board). And, even though I was careful to use an old, worn out flat-head screwdriver, electrically grounded (MUST have an insulated wooden or plastic handle), the discharge arc was so violent that it destroyed the tip of the screwdriver.

And don't think that the telescoping / retracting lens barrel can be "gently forced" open or closed, as the tiny DC motor has a plastic worm-gear on its shaft, initiating torque to a miniature train of 7 plastic spur gears, before reaching the final plastic spur gear track, 120 degrees part-way around the large outside lens barrel. So, to make a long story short, any attempt to manually move the lens barrel out, or in, will most certainly damage the spur gears, as absolutely no manual movement is possible at the worm gear on the motor shaft. And, anyway, the geared motor drive provides more than enough torque, by itself, to extend / retract the lens barrel, unless there is grit and debris interfering with the smooth motion of the gears and angled slots.

Sand, grit, and other debris can sometimes find its way between both lens barrels, and into the curved, 120 degree spur gear track. And since the 120 degree spur gear track is not lubricated, it can possibly be cleaned by very lightly tapping the camera on a table top, with the lens down (this is assuming that both lens barrels are fully retracted) , to loosen any debris, and then using a vacuum cleaner: Taking care to apply the open nozzle of the vacuum cleaner, tilted (to reduce its intensity), but directly on the perimeter of both lens barrels, so as not to **** the lens barrels out, yet apply a strong vacuum into the narrow grooves.

This may damage your camera -but do you really have a choice?

Also, a piece of paper can easily inserted between the lens barrels and run along the circumference to help clean out some of the grit. And repeat the process above, until the lens works.

But that's assuming that the problem is caused by dirt and grit in the inner workings of the lens.

The other cause for the telescoping / retracting lens barrel to malfunction is either the camera was dropped (while the lens barrels were extended), or the camera "POWER" button was somehow depressed while the camera was stowed away, and the lens barrel was prevented from extending. Either situations will break off 2 teeth of the final circular plastic spur gear, that powers the 120 degree spur gear track on the outer lens barrel. If you know either of these to be the case, then your camera cannot be fixed, and a repair would probably cost more than the camera.
