    Same problem (except, I get 3 beeps) The lens is out and won't retract.

    The 2 or 3 beeps must be error codes. Is there a reset button or combination of bussonts anywhere on this camera?

    thanks!

    Nikon Coolpix L5 when I turn it on the green power button comes on but the lens does not come out and the screen is blank, and it does not make the chime sound it usually does when it turns on
    any help with this would be great.

SOURCE: it dont turn on

I had the same problem. Try to turn it on, 3 beeps and then it would shut down. Screen would come on for that time. Also, the lens was stuck open. It wouldn't close.

I twisted the lens (gently) and it appeared stuck. A gentle screw motioned seemed to free it. I hit the power button and it come on, but this time no 3 beeps and shut down. I then turned it off and this time the lens retracted and closed.

So, it appears that if the lens gets stuck open, it has a shut down feature that doesn't allow the camera to go further into its operation modes. I believe this stuck open problem occured on our camera when the batteries went low.

Again, a second of gentle twisting seemed to unstick it and with fresh batteries in, it was able to operate and shut down properly.

As far as batteries, I use the rechargeable Ni-Cad 2500 mA. They last a while.

Blessings to you!

This product has a 2 year warranty, unfortunately I lost the original till receipt, but managed to get the transaction details from PC World (I bought it in Dec 2006). The Samsung telephone number for the UK is 00800 12263727 - I have now sent it off to them for repair (recorded delivery) to the service centre at Samsung Opto-Electronics UK Ltd, Samsung House, 1000 Hillswood Drive, Hillswood Business Park, Chertsey, KT16 0PS - On talking to their service team, when the camera "Beeps" 3 times and turns off it is faulty, and will need to be repaired - So no easy fix - It's over to you now!!

This error is due to the lens mechanism being jammed and unable to extended, usually due to dirt or grit getting inside. The motor times out and the camera beeps 3 times before shutting down.
If you are unable to have Samsung fix this under warranty, you can carefully prise the lens out using a feeler gauge while powering the camera on, giving the motor a little help.

you must have dropped your camera where it caused damage in internal part. when cameras are dropped wires and screws inside loosen which will cause trouble. Have it checked by a pro. you might destroy it more if you try to fix it yourself. Thanks.

I have the same problem


Hi:

If you did not drop it, you probably have some dust or small particles around the outside of the lense. They prevent the lense from fully opening. The lense cover might have the same problem. As a result it is stuck.

When the lense open up try to clean around the lenseor the cover. If it opens, but not all the way out, try to pull it out NOT too hard.

When it opens, try dust off. Make sure you do not force too hard on all of the steps above.

Good LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Samsung Digimax L730 Digital Camera


I encountered this issue today while taking a photo of my dog she licked the lens... the LCD screen went all blurry and I was unable to take any photos. The thing kept beeping at me and I was about to throw it in the bin until I had a good look at the lens. As there was a picture coming through on the LCD I knew it wasn't completely stuffed however as the camera couldn't focus an image it gives the unhelpful beeps which apparently translates to clean the lens! So i gave it a clean and presto it was fixed!

Just be careful when u clean it make sure u don't scratch the lens with rough material or use chemicals. Hope it works.

Samsung camera not turning on.


First make sure you batteries are strong.

Then this is not a great solution, but try this. 1) Remove the battery. 2) Hold down the power button and wait 30 seconds...but keep holding the button. 3) After 30 seconds and while holding the button down insert the batteries and then close the compartment. It should come on.

I managed to duplicate the problem by opening the battery compartment with the camera turn on and then if I put them back it would turn on and the lense does not retract.

Good Luck
