Re: Beeps/not coming on
If you are sure it has got sand in it, then the only thing you can do to fix it for more than a couple of uses is to get it open and clean the sand out.
If you have access to dry air (not diving bottles or gas station tyre air if possible) then you can probably open it up and try yourself.
Be aware that this is not the best way unless you have the right tools to open it and the knowledge to understand the inside.
Take it to a service centre if you are in ANY doubt. ask again with general location details and we can find a service centre near you.
Here is the link to the user manual if you need it;
Check page 59 of the pdf (page 58 of the manual) for the reset instructions - worth a try before doing anything drastic.
Hope this helps :)

It's possible that the inside of the button has gotten some soap or "gunk" which is showing the button as being held on. Try and clean out around and behind the button, even a small squirt of WD 30 may loosen anything behind the button. Make sure the power is off before doing anything.
Hi Remove the sound card and blow the slot with dry air to rid off dust. Examine it to make sure nothing's damaged and fix it again. Checkout the RAM's.Probably remove them,wipe the slots off dust and fix them again.Make sure they're well seated on their slots.
First check the battery. Charge the battery to full condition or change with new battery and try to turn on your camera. Or you can put off all batteries and memory card, wait for a moment, then put in again and turn on your camera.
I found this answer on another forum. I giggled the lens as it was stuck out and then pushed the power button to guide it back closed. Then I gave it a soft whack on my palm when the lens was closed. I think I had a piece of sand stuck where the lens goes in and out. I also made sure that the battery type was Ni-Mh instead of alkaline on the menu. This is a recurring problem with Samsung cameras.
