Question about Samsung Digimax L830 Digital Camera
Camera lens is stuck out and won't go in, when i turn camera on the on light is on but screen is black and am unable to take photo. Also when I charge the light on charger is red....camera was bought in Nov 07, rarely used...hasn't been dropped
I fixed mine today.
Found a small piece of junk between the gear wheel teaths. Could not see a way it could come there from outside word.
I could not turn the engine by hand, so no wonder the electronics could neither.
I took the red front off (7 screws and both are off)
The "big" engine is the one that gets stuck, as the gear gets blocked inside the black gear box
Unsoldering the 4 pins on the gear house and remove 3 black screws, and the top gets off
Remove the gearwheel closest to the engine, and you should (if not too blocked) be able to turn the wheels, by grabbing the big ring on the lens
Put an inkmark on each gearwheel, and the one that gets stuck almost in same position might have dirth between two teaths where it meets another wheel
Remove dust, also if invisible, maybe between all theeths too
Test: The engine will pull lens in and out by using a 3V coincell to the engine (unsolder first, not to kill electronics)

I had exactly the same problem
all i did was take out the battery, put it back in, pressed the power button and it started working normally.
im afraid this is all i can suggest.
hope it works for you (:

Well when you charge your camera your charger should be red at first; green means it's fully charged...as for the lens....try turning it on and gently pull or push on the part that sticks out and maybe it might activate and go back in.
that happened to mine and I tried that and it worked...now my only issue is that the shutters won't close and when I turn it on i get like 3 beeps and the screen shuts off with the power button still on...
seems like everyone's having this problem.
good luck. :]
