    I am having the same issue. everything i read tells me that gears must be stuck causing the lense to only come out part of the way and it doesnt know what to do. i was told to go to a repair shop. but wear?

    Same problems...the thing is just flaky and has a mind of it's own. Sometimes blinky, sometimes on, sometimes flashy. We got lucky and just kept messing with the batteries. The camera has internal settings for what kind of batteries are in it. When you have it set for one type, and then they die, so you replace with another kind, it confuses the camera and causes internal Khaos and jamming. Try different batteries until it turns on, then go to the menu, go under settings, down past end of page to battery type, then change it to whatever battery you're using and don't ever change the battery type again (alkaline or NI-MH). That's our plan. Good Luck.

Do as someone said above, just go to menu and settings and change the battery type to NI-MH, that's if you're using rechargeable batteries. My nieces' cam did the same thing for about a day until we figured out that if you use rechargeable batteries you have to change the settings to NI-MH.

If you use regular batteries, change the setting to alkaline. Her cam is working excellent and better than before now when changing the setting.

The camera beeps 3 times on startup and then shuts down...

You have dirt trapped in the lense mechanism. use compressed air can to blow it out then turn camera off ans slap it into the palm of your hand a few times and turn on again to test if it has cleared. This is not a joke it actually works. Lots of these types of cameras suffer from this problem and I have fixed them using this method. Passed on By a Canon Tech!!! It certainly worked for mine . Be persistent some work immediately others take several goes of blowing and slapping face down

Samsung s860 camera lens will not close and is out of focus.

I hate to say it but your camera needs to be serviced. Might not be worth the repair. Try to take it to a local repair center that would offer you a free estimate....
