    I can turn the camera on - the lens opens and extends however the screen remains black. I can view the photos that are on the camera but it won't let me take any. THe batteries are new and show full.

Motor stalled - if newish try returning it for replacement
If not so new - replace it
Repair is not an option.

My S850 won't turn on anymore. The lens is out and open. I can't get it to come on even to close the lens. What can I do about this??


Hello. It sounds like your battery is low on power, or possibly worn out and needing to be replaced. Take your camera into any radio shack and ask them to check the battery for you. a free service. Joe

Camera beeps loud 3 times and shuts right off!!


sounds like a lens error, does the lens extend or retract? You probably have to get the lens back on track, use gentle pressure wiht the camera face down on a towel covered table and turn on to see if the camera tries to retract the lens. I really dislike these types of cameras that extend the lens everytime, if it turns on in your pocket, your doomed!

Digimax samsung s500 beeps 3 times lens stuck wont stay on


Mine got stuck with lens out. The batteries were new so I never imagined it could be the batteries, but they were cheap ones so I recharged a pair of good ones and once I put tried them on it worked just fine again. Conclusion, the "new" cheap batteries had only enough energy to turn it on and then they couldn't give it enough energy to make it work anymore and that's why I couldn't retract the lens or even turn it off properly. So in your case, try using a couple of good and new batteries.

Camera won't turn on


Plug it into the charger, then remove the battery. Disconnect is and then insert the battery/ That may reset it.

This also sometimes happens when a camera is dropped and the lens assembly is tweaked just a bit. Point it to your face and turn it on. Press on different places on the lens assembly while you toggle it off and on. If it comes out, your lens unit is out of line. You can try moving it side to side and even forcing it a little but it will probably never be just right.
