Your camera almost certainly has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Samsung service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera, or at least are able to use the information to help decide whether to buy another camera. If you do decide that you have to throw your camera away then don't forget to remove the memory card as it can be used in other devices. Please take a moment to rate the free and speedy answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome.

When I click the button to take a picture the screen goes blank and doesn't come back on. Power light is still on.


Your shutter is stuck open. Remove the lens. Set to fireworks mode. May need to be in a dark room. When you press the shutter button tap the camera with an object that won't damage it. I used a rubber coated knife handle. Pull the battery and repeat. Tapping all around the camera. Hopefully it will break free. Then do some continuous shooting to loosen it up.

2007 fatboy front disc brake makes a type of rattling noise when still cold but the noise goes away when front brake applied and disappears completley when bike/brakes warmed up after about 1km. Pad...


I your pads are only 2mm (0.080") thick, you are due for some new pads. They should be nearer 20mm thick without measuring the metal backing plate, both of them. Good reason for the rattle.

Good Luck

How do you restart a Canon power shot sx110is camera


usually there's just a very small (maybe 1 or 2mm) button that needs to be pressed (by maybe a ballpen). it might be under the camera or somewhere else that is not easy to mess with, since you don't really want to do a reset unless nothing else works for you. i don't think it's harmful though. goodluck!

Battery connection on my Shure SM58


Hiya,
I know they could have come have come up with something a little more durable!!

What we used to do is put a piece of double side tape at the back (the thick 2mm spongy one) and then put paper or something over the front so the battery doesnt stick to it, battery then has alot more pressure on it. The tape sticks into the back of the mic. Its a bit stoneage, but worked pretty well.

Best of luck

Wobbly lens


Half mm or so movement is normal in fully extended lens. If camera is not giving any error display during function then every thing is just fine in it.

The motor circuit on most handycams has it's own fuse since it draws more power then the rest of the camera combined.
The fuse will only be a tiny white blip on the circuit board about 1-2mm in size.
Safest option would be to have a technician take a look at it since they can be stubborn to even get apart, let alone track down mico fuses.
