I turn on my samsung s860 and it beeps twice, then the lens will not fully extend and it beeps twice again. It will not fully retract and has the same beeping. I have put in new batteries, it has not been dropped or exposed to liquid of any kind. Its kept out of extreme heat. It worked fine this afternoon and now having this problem.

I'm not sure what type of batteries you are currently using, but if you are using regular alkaline batteries, I would suggest trying some lithium ones. They are a little more expensive but they're a lot better in digital devices and they last a lot longer too. You can find them anywhere they sell batteries. They're the energizer e2 ones in the blue package.

The camera turns on but it is all blurry. And when I turn it off it beeps twice and the lense won't go all the way in.


Sounds like your lens assembly is damaged, it isn't able to twist the lens appropriately in order to fully close it or to focus in on the images you want. You will more than likely need to have the camera serviced. In most cases if it isn't under its warranty it will be a repair ranging close to $100, which is typically the cost of a new camera. Check your date of purchase as camera's come with at least a 1 year manufacturer's warranty, and hopefully you can get set straight.

My Samsung S860 will no longer focus and will only take blurry photos. When you press the power button to off, when the lenses retracts, it beeps twice. Is this fixable?


Yes, the problem of your camera still repairable and I hope only adjustment of focus or cleaning of gear inside of the lens.

If you can open your camera and try to adjust the focus gear or clean the gear inside of lens.kindly check alos if the cable is not broken and connected properly.

goodluck and thank you my friend

I have a samsung 860 digital camera ang my problem is the lens... the lens is still retracted even its turned off... before it happened the camera have a low battery.. and when i charged the battery for...


This may be similar to another solution posted. Try heavy duty batteries - I used ACDelco Super Alkaline, but any brand of "heavy duty" AA should work. Make sure battereis are not cold; low temp causes any battery to lose power. If fresh heavy duty batteries do not help, it may need professional service. (DO NOT try to force the lens back to retracted position - something WILL break.)

Samsun sl201 lens will not extend, then camera shuts down


If the camera's lens will not retract out, then eventually shuts down, here is what you try to do.

Hold the camera from your right hand with the lens facing down. Then tap the base of the camera to your left palm while turning the camara on; do this several times until the camera's lens retracts out.

This problem often occur when the camera was taken outdoor or in the beach. Sand or a tiny granule of dirt might got stuck in the base of the lens.

Samsung L100 digital camera beep problem


If the lens is retracted, hold up the camera to your eye and look at the lens. If you see one end sticking out a little bit, push that side in and press the power button. It should work.
If the lens isn't retracted, push the lens around until it is in its regular position. When you press the power button, it will retract and come out again and should work fine.

Hope this advice helps!

Samsung s860 camera lens will not close and is out of focus.


I hate to say it but your camera needs to be serviced. Might not be worth the repair. Try to take it to a local repair center that would offer you a free estimate....

Camera beeps loud 3 times and shuts right off!!


sounds like a lens error, does the lens extend or retract? You probably have to get the lens back on track, use gentle pressure wiht the camera face down on a towel covered table and turn on to see if the camera tries to retract the lens. I really dislike these types of cameras that extend the lens everytime, if it turns on in your pocket, your doomed!
