When i try to power up my camera it trys to turn on and then it beeps three times and shuts off i have put a lot of batteries in it and there good i just dont understand what is wrong with it!!!HELP!!!
My guess is that your camera has been dropped recently and that the beeping is a result of the lens not extended when powered on. My Mother-in-Law has the same camera exhibiting the same symptoms. I've been able to get it to turn on by slightly pulling on the lens prior to turning it on. One of the plastic gears inside is probably damaged.

Make sure the batteries are good and in right. If it keeps doing it you might be having a problem with your lens opening up and staying open, I had a camera that did that to me, and the lens had been knock and wouldnt open properly, check that out. The lens was out of range from normal and would automatically shut down
right as the lens comes out very quickly remove the battery before the lens slides back inand beeps three times, wait a second put the battery back in and switch on obviously let the lens go back in and hay presto itshould work, it worked a treat for my L100, i hope this helps some of you but its obvious to us all our camera's are ****.
If you've had the rechargeable batteries for a long time, they can wear out. I would try getting some new rechargeable batteries or try some lithium batteries in your camera. They're a little more expensive but they're the best for digital devices and they last a little longer.
I figured out the fix: Take the batteries out, put them back in and close the battery cover. Next, turn on the camera and before it can finish the three beep sequence, open up the battery cover(disconnecting the battery power). Close the battery cover (reconnecting the batteries) and switch on the camera. It may take a couple of tries, but it seems to be a "poor man's reset"
the 3 beeping sound means that the camera has low battery capacity. the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one: -turn the camera on -click on Menu button -select options using left/right, up/down button -select Set up 2 -Select Battery type -Select Alkaline for non-rechargable or Ni-MH for rechargable -click OK button
this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.
A temporary fix to power up is to press the menu and power button at
the same time. When the lens is extended and it beeps, on my camera ,
the lens is *stuck* Give it a gentle tug , then try the power button
You probably don't have the batteries fully charged up. Also you will need to change battery type from alkaline to metal hydride in the "wrench2"(the last icon on the menu) menu. You did get metal hydride rechargeable batteries??? If you got nickel-cadmium rechargeables that might also be your problem with your camera as they don't have enough power.
