Question about Cameras
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.
