Question about Cameras
Hi. I switched off my Samsung Digimax S500 & while the lens was retracting I mistakenly opened the battery compartment. Now the lens is still sticking out and the camera wont come on. It makes a buzzing sound when i push the on button. Please help, I go on holiday soon and would hate to leave my S500 at home!
Don't try and manually push in the lens at first...the buzzing is a warning letting you know that something is wrong with the camera. By accidently removing the batteries during shut down you interupted the shut down sequence. Try and turn on the camera and immediately press the play button on the back. This should reset the camera. If not and if you are under warranty it needs to be serviced. If you are not under warranty then you can try and push the lens down. Don't use a lot of force but try and gently do it.
