Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Samsung PL100 digital camera. I dropped it while at beach, it was switched off. When I went to switch it on the lens came out but then it made a buzzing sound and switched itself off. The lens is still out but the shutter cover is still open. I love my camera and take it everywhere with me, can you help?

I had the same exact issue.... try putting it on the charger, even if you think it's fully charged... If the light is red, leave it on the charger until it turns green, and then remove the battery for a second and then put it back in the camera before turning it back on..... try turning it on. If it still won't close, put it back on the charger. If the charger is automatically indicating a red light, that means you have exhausted your battery and will nee a new one... they cost about 5-11 dollars on amazon...... hope that helps...

SOURCE: Digital camera switches on and then off very quickly

I too am experiencing the same problem with this model. Have you found a solution? I think it could be a firmware problem, but I can not find a update download.

SOURCE: Frozen lens and shutter

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

SOURCE: HELP! dropped camera, lens won't go back in, shutter won't close

I have a camsung L830 that had similar problems and and after I would turn it on, it would beep three times and turn off....but I somehow fixed the lens by turning the camera on and then either pushing/pulling on the part the stickes out and hopefully it might activate the mechanism and it'll go in...that's what happened with mine...the shutters still won't close though. But I'm happy I can use my camera now.

SOURCE: lens error restart camera but

Hi

Your lens is defective needs to be cleaned, repaired or replaced. If you got sand in the gears it will definitely jam up the lens! Sometimes you can tear down the lens and clean out the sand, and if none of the gears are damaged the lens will then work properly again.

There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

I know this because I OWN ONE that charges a reasonable price to do the repair! (Google 'darntoothysam')

Just let us know if we can help! Good luck from

SOURCE: Digital camera got dropped into

THIS SOUNDS TERMINAL, BUT YOU MIGHT TRY USING CANNED AIR LIKE YOU USE TO BLOW DUST OUT OF YOUR COMPUTER, AND SEE IF IT HELPS ANY. MOST OF THESE CAMERAS ARE MADE WITH THE IDEA THAT THEY WILL NEVER BE TAKEN APART OR OPENED FOR CLEANING ETC. SO, THAT IS THE ONE PROBLEM YOU ARE FACING. I DOUBT IF IT WOULD BE WORTH SPENDING THE MONEY TO SEND IT IN TO BE CLEANED. THAT CAN GET VERY EXPENSIVE IN A HURRY, PLUS TAKE A GOOD MONTH OR MORE FOR THE REPAIR. SORRY, I CAN'T HAVE MORE CHEERY NEWS, BUT THINGS LIKE THIS JUST AREN'T TAKEN INTO ACCORD WHEN THEY MAKE THESE CAMERAS. IF I CAN HELP MORE JUST REPLY TO:

My samsung pl100 wont turn on. the lens is extended and its fully charged the green light comes on then beeps and shuts off. This camera is brand new ive only had it 1 week! how do i fix it?


OK this might sound harsh but i just did this. I pushed in, gently with some force, on the lens while pushing the power button. It made a gawd awful crunch sound, but it worked. Good luck.

The lens is stuck out and is slightly bent and it wont switch on. the light comes on and then switches off. it was dropped


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Lens stuck half way out


it seems that your cam and barrel assembly has been damaged. The worst part is that you do not get the spare part either from Samsung or any other vendor. if you get a solution please mail me
