When turned on camera beeps 3 times & the zoom

Does it take standard disposable batteries or a rechargeable pack?
If the first, check they are inserted correctly as per the illustration in the battery compartment or instruction manual section on inserting batteries.
If the second type, recharge the pack.
If problem continues check Troubleshooting section of manual or online at Samsung's website.

Lens stuck open

hey, I had the same problem when I accidentally droped my camera, some parts in the mechanism are probably broken or jammed.

Most likely repairs required.

I have a EX-S600 Casio. When I turn it on the lens pops out, I get 3 audible beeps, hear some grinding and then the lens retracts and the camera shuts off, it all takes about about 6 to 7 seconds. I've...

If you hear a grinding then it's toast. Any issue with the mechanism would cost more to have repaired than replaced. This usually happens as a result of the lens being bumped while open or opened in a bag. Or, a contaminate such as sand inside the body of the camera.

Put new batteries in and it does not power up anymore. Beeps 3 times and nothing happens.

Are the batteries fully charged?

Does it work with the old batteries?

Chances are that the batteries are faulty. If they are in warranty it shouldn't be a problem replacing them with new ones.

When it is turned on it beeps 3 times and then turns off

Problem could be a bad battery. The beeps you're hearing could be a signal that power is low or almost dead. Assuming that your charger and the power/outlet in your house is fine, you could take a chance by buying a generic battery on the web. is a great source and usually they are pretty cheap. Try going to E-bay and type in your brand and model along with the word battery. By the way, I do not endorse E-bay nor am I affiliated in any way with the site or any of it's vendors. I just know they have many items such as the one you might need.

Good luck!

Lens,not close properly

If it is your camera's time to go, there is no helping that. Most likely a grain of sand has found it's way into your camera mech. You can turn your camera on and off while banging it on the counter gently, but it is unlikely you will succeed, due to most lens parts use a sticky lithium grease for lubricant.

Samsung Digimax S600 is stucked in off position

I've had this with a diff model of Samsumg (V10). The problem with mine was that the lens wasn't opening, which was causing the beeping. I held the camera with lens facing down and when I pressed the power button I lightly tapped the camera against the palm of my other hand. The lens extracted.

I have more problems with the lens now but that may have something to do with me dropping it later:(
