Question about Samsung Digimax L730 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Samsung L730 won't come on...


Press power button, lense doesn't expand out but view screen comes on blurry for about 3 seconds then camera beeps 3 times and screen goes blank, blue power light stays on and camera is locked up, won't do anything without taking battery out and trying again. Anyone have any ideas??? Camera worked 3 days ago then this just happened. Hasn't been dropped.

Just fixed mine, if the lens is out that's the problem we had, it was jammed and not allowing it to switch on, we gently pushed it back in, then switched on, the lens came out a bit then jammed, pushed it in again & kept doing it until it cleared the blockage. 
Works fine now! 
Hope it works for you.

The lens on my L730 digital camera does not open.


Hi, I had exact the same problem with mine Samsung L730. I opened it and took the 2 flatcables from the circuit board (to the lens-unit) out of there connectors. After I put them back in again, the camera worked. I geuss it was a bad electric connection of the lens-unit. Maybe this will solve your problem. If the camera is older than 1 year and has no warrenty, just try this. Good luck.

The camera may be faulty or it needs to be reset to the factory settings.
Try removing the battery leave it out for at least 1/2 hour, then replace the battery.
If it doesn't work then you need a new camera.

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.
