There may be a problem with the software of the camera. This also happens sometimes when there is moisture in the camera. the moisture usually comes when you take the camera from an air conditioned atmosphere to open and sunny areas.
this usually becomes alright on its own; however if not hten you will have to take the camera to Service center..
it has been few days since you posted this, so i think the problem may have rectified itself

take care

The lens won't close


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Camera won't focus to take a picture


Hi,
If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that is causing the camera to shut down. If you haven't dropped it, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try solution before you do anything else:


Step1: 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).

Step2: 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 batteries may need to be replaced.
Step3: Remove the lens from the camera. Put the body cap on the camera, and put the rear lens cap on the back of the lens. Make sure you are in a clean environment.


Step 4: Take the rear cap off the lens and use the blower to blow large pieces of dust off the lens. Go around the entire rear part of the lens with the blower.


Step 5: Dip the swab in the isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. You should use only a light amount; the best way to ensure this is to wear light vinyl gloves, like those used by health care providers, and squeeze the swab with your fingers after dipping it in the solution. Gently clean the contacts on the lens with the swab. After you have done so, use the blower on the lens contacts again.

Step 6: Repeat the procedure on the contacts on the camera body.


Step 7: Reattach the lens to the camera and test it to see if the error or focusing problems still exist. If they do, try cleaning the contacts again.


Thank you!!

Three beeps when i try to turn it on


i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

How do I set the timer?


To set the timer, you simply need have the camera in ready mode (as if you were going to take a picture normally), then on the back where you have the four directional pad buttons, with the camera facing you press the left button once and you should see a circle with the number 10 in it. If not, press again. This is the timer for 10 seconds. If your press the left button again, you will see a circle with a 2 in it. This is the 2-second timer.

Now choose which one you want, the 10 or 2-second timer. Once you have decided, press the shutter button fully and you will start to hear beeping. This is the count down sound. Now depending on if you have the flash setting to go off, once the beeping and the self-time indicator on the front of the camera stops flashing, your picture has been taken.

To take another timed photo, you must repeat the same steps again.

Hope that helps.

Camera Stuck with lens out. Beeps


I dropped the camera on the table a couple of times, twisted the front of it. Suddenly the lens retracted into the camera, the beeping quit, and now I can take pictures again. The Samsung website is horrible.

Beeps repeatedly, lense won't retract...won't take pictures?


Hi Jeanice21, I just posted the same problem a few minutes ago with my SD400. I followed a few steps of the suggested solutions and here's what worked for me.

1) take apart the front and back by unscrewing the six screws holding the camera together
2) on the left of the flash, there are two little retangular holes with grooved dials in them
3) using a little flat head screwdriver, push up or down to turn the grooves while power up in the movie or capture mode
4) the lens retracted at this point and my camera started working again. Good luck!

Error message


my camera did the same thing, lens retracts 3 or 4 times, and then proceeded with an error message "turn off and on again". I pressed the power button probably about 10 times, didn't work, so then i gave it a good smack on the top of the frame a few times while repeatedly pressing the power button and it did the trick. Hasn't gave me problems since...hope it helps
