Your camera most likely 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. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

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

Video will not work on ps3


It may be stuck in the opposite mode of what you are using on the TV like HDMI output or S-Video. To check this press and hold down the power button, you will hear the initial beap once and shortly followed by a double beap. After the double beap immediately remove you finger. You may have to do this once or twice to get the right beap because this is a service menu they do not want you to get into. Once this is done you will have prompts on the tv to change settings to what every output you want. Make sure you change it to the right one and you should be all set.

KM-450MAB making beaping noise-compressor will not run


The cleaning valve must be closed duing the ice making mode. If it is open, the machine will not make ice. The beeping you hear is the alarm which is present on the machine. Remove the front cover and read the included text. This will tell you what alarm you have.

Model KM-450MAB--Ice Machine Making Beaping Noise


Keeps on beeping? Every 3 to 4 seconds? Try putting the thermostat wires together. An open bin thermostat will cause this problem and the board see it and starts beeping.

Pairing


With the microphone closed, push in the call button. It should turn purple within a second or two. When it does release it and as quick as possible flip open the microphone. The light should stay purple and it is now in "pairing mode"

Door indicator prevents microwave from starting


This is usually an indication of a bad door interlock. Take resistance readings with the power turned off on the primary and secondary interlocks. You will need to remove the control panel to access them. There should be a wiring diagram somewhere inside the control panel to assist you in determining if the interlock is normally OPEN, or normally CLOSED. As you open and close the door the interlock should change states. Additionally, double all your connectors to make sure they are plugged in correctly. I had a similar problem once and it turned out to be a loose connection on one of the interlocks. I hope this helps you.
