Question about Samsung Digimax 530 Digital Camera
Camera bleeps and will not not turn on
Posted by Anonymous on
This problem is usually caused by grit in the mechanics of the lense. To resolve the problem:
1. Ensure the lense itself is clear, removing any visible objects.
2. Try tapping / knocking the camera to dislodge any obstruction.
3. Failing this you can force the mechanics by turning the lense sections - however be careful when attempting this as you may snap the lense if turned too hard or the wrong way.

SOURCE: My camera won't turn on.
If you've recently dropped the camera you may have lens damage that is causing the camera to shut down. If you haven't dropped it, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If the lens is stuck out then you will find it is usually one of a few reasons.
1. Check the batteries. (obvious I know).
2. The camera has been dropped or knocked.
3. The camera has grit or dirt in the lens mechanism.
Providing the batteries are ok then 2 and 3 usually mean a professional repair. The lenses tend not to be something that the average home user can remove and take apart. The cost of repair also might be more than the camera value so you will need to find a good repair shop near you and get a quote.

The problem with mine was that the lens motor was somehow stuck. I gently pulled the lens out as I turned the camera on. It went back to normal afterward. Hope this helps
