Sir this is my solution
try to refresh it by detaching your battery and attach it back. charge it for the time that the battery come in full charge and turn it on. just be sure that your new battery was compatible or not high voltage to accept it on your camera. if not, it must be the hardware inside the camera was broken or damage. hope that helps!

The battery contacts are dirty.

The batteries are inserted wrongly.

You have a problem with the lens mechanism.

Shake camera and listen for anything rattling around. If metal it could short anything out.

    i suggest you to once try switching over to 2500 mAh Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries.
    you will see a difference.Digital cameras with zoom lens need more power than what can be supplied by ordinary batteries..

    ,Polish the terminals with
    a dry cloth and make sure the terminals are clean. If the terminals are
    covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor
    contact and power may not be fully supplied to the camera.

    polish the battery charger terminals with a dry cloth before charging
    the battery. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or
    similar matter, this may cause poor contact and the battery may not be
    fully charged.

    the lens does not extend then it is possible that it has become jammed.
    Sometimes this can cause the camera to sense an error and shut itself
    down immediately after powering on.There
    are other explanations for the behavior, but if the lens does not move
    this is the most likely cause. If the lens does extend but then the
    camera shuts right back off it is possible that an inner component such
    as the focusing element is not functioning properly.

    you are not getting a display on your LCD then it is a CCD sensor
    issue.There are no home remedies for this problem and you will have to
    get it repaired.

Green light goes on when I turn camera on, but 3 red lights flash when I shoot & nothing happens. I tried changing multiple batteries, all alkaline. No luck yet. Any ideas?

The 3 flashing red lights indicate low battery power! This could be because of low battery power (all 4 batteries must be good), the battery contacts in the camera are poor, the make of battery being used (try different make of battery)

Multi indicator light flashes red then green but camera won't turn on - VPC CA8EX

The condition you described is usually a problem with power to the circuit board in Samsung cameras. I know you mentioned the battery but try the following:
1. Ensure battery is good
2. Remove the battery from the camera.
3. Let the camera sit with the battery removed
for approximately 60 minutes.
4. Clean your battery contacts on the battery and in the camera with a clean cloth, or Q-tip dampened with alcohol or contact cleaner.
5. Reinstall the battery and try to power on the camera. If your camera still doesn't work it will need to go in for service.

Red flashing light

Find a new supply of "Duracell Ultra with M3 Technology" batteries and give them a try. The flashing red light is usually an indication that the batteries you have in the unit are not producing sufficient power to run the camera. Rechargable batteries are should have a rating of 2500mAh or above in order to provide enough power to maintain the draw from the camera.

Hope this helps!

I've had my camera for a long time so I don't think I'll get the option of taking it back and exchanging it but I keep having the same charging problem. I just tried the flash button trick... the green light is on, steady, and holding. I'm not going to touch it any more and I hope that if I leave it this way for a bit it'll charge up.

My advice is to NOT LET THE BATTERY RUN DOWN past half charge, otherwise it won't have enough power to stay on long enough to register the fact that its plugged in to the computer.
