Samsung NV10 - 4 bleeps on switching on then turns off

My Samsung NV10 has been working perfectly for the past month. Yesterday it stopped mid use and now the lens is out, and everying time i press the power button, the camera gives 4 bleeps and switches off. If i press the play button i can still scroll through my pictures and the buttons are still responding, but i can't use it. Any advice Thanks

Been shooting at the beach or high sea. There is prob some salt/sand inside your lens. If you gently slide a piece of paper with some strength (be shure it does not rip off inside your lens) in between the moving part of the lens. Turn on your cam and gently slide the paper around the lens. In my case this always works. I turn it on and off again if the lens is out a few times repeating theprocess and now it is fully opperational again.

Listen!! this is a homemade fix. to unsure good usage along time let samsung repair it because the sand is still in there !!!

Have fun kids

I was able to contact the manufacturer who repaired my camera under warranty. They were wonderful to work with and my camera was only out of my hands for 10 days, out just before Thanksgiving and back just after! Amazing for a holiday time frame.

Ok my camera lens got stuck...so i fixed it...the fix didnt last long as after 10/15 mins it got stuck again...and keeps gettn stuck so now to take a picture i have 2 pull the lens out every time...what...


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.

Problem with camera


The lens is sticking, I had same problem, thought it was the battery. It kept doing 4 beeps and turning off, but the lens would be out.

Lightly lube the lens area with WD 40 worked, be real careful and don't use alot of it. My camera works fine now. I actually read the solution someone on this site, can't find it now, but wanted to post that it worked for me. I love the camera and was bummed it wasn't working. Works great now!

Not sure about the battery... that could be it and I haven't tried switching it out for a new one yet, but in the meantime I am getting around this problem my grabbing the lens with my fingers and "helping" come all the way out... just give it a little pull, a little encouragement and it will come all the way out... but the trick is that you have to do it right after you try to turn it on and before you get the beeps...

So if your lens is stuck out right now and the camera is powered off, then turn the camera on and then pull the lens out before you get the beeps... once you give it a little tug, the mechanics should take over and it will extend all the way... the LCD will come on and you'll be good to go...

Like I said, I'm having this problem too and my girlfriend suggested we change the battery... I guess that's possible, that the battery is not holding enough of a charge to push the lens all the way out... I'll investigate how much a new battery costs and then determine if I think its worth a try...

The lens is jammed.
This is a result of damage to the gear in the motor asssembly.
The gear teeth have been broken off & as a result the gears that drive the opening& closing of the barrel dont mesh together resulting in the jam and your 4 beeps!!
