    While repositioning objects between shots, my screen went black but the lense did not retract. Now, nothing happens when I press the power button. My battery was reading full but I tried charging anyway. The charger light started red but soon turned green. However, the camera is still lifeless! It's only about 6 weeks old and I've maybe taken 50 shots with it! I'm not impressed at all.

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.

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. :]

My samsung L830 camera has jammed with the lens open and


Just had this happen to my L100. First, take out the battery and wait a couple hours for everything to cool down and discharge. Then place the battery back in. Then plug the USB cord into the camera and PC. Then turn the camera on and it should be okay. Just worked for mine.

My samsung l830 camera lens is stuck open and when i press the power button it beeps 3 times and remains blue then does nothing


If the lens on the camera is stuck out, look to see if it's a little crooked. If it is, try to gently straighten it. If it still won't retract, try to gently push it in as you turn the power on.
If it won't turn on (the green light blinks and it beeps 3 times) push and hold the 'power' button and the 'play' button at the same time for a few seconds - it worked for my S730. Good luck!

Frozen camera


i had this same problem with the Samsung L830
I had no camera experience so you know this is not too difficult.

  1. I unscrewed the front cover by taking out the screws on the sides and bottom. (make sure you put them where they wont get lost they are very small)
  2. Snap off the front cover
  3. In the upper right hand corner next to the lens there is a cover with three screws in it remove this cover.
  4. There Should be some gears if you remove the gears clean them and make sure it is running smoothly, then replace everything in the correct order it may solve your problem
This is what i did hopefully it helps

Wont turn on


Sounds like what I just explained in my own fix to in subject: "Samsung L830 wont' work".
I found some junk in the gearwheels, so the engine got stuck, leaving the lens in some fixed position.
Small parts as do-it-yourself, but easy to get into as explained in other thread
