Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Beeps/not coming on

The camera will only beep when the power button is pushed. I suspect it has gotten sand in it. Is there anyway to fix this that will not cost more then the value of the camera? Thank you!

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; http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=HQ&CttFileID=1390763&CDCttType=UM&ModelType=N&ModelName=DIGIMAX-S500B&VPath=UM/200703/20070331074441859_DigimaxS500_S600_ENG.pdf 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 :)

Maytag dryer, model #MEDE200XW1 was working fine, then I pushed the start button and was walking away and didn't get button pushed in or held long enough to start. Now it just beeps when it the start...

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.

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.

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.

Beeps three times but does not come on, changed batteries, zoom stuck... not going back in

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.

Lens will not come out when powereing on. Battery is charged.

You are right, the lens is stuck, and it might be a sand in the engine of lens,. Take a part the camera and see the engine. Its not dificult.
