    I have the same problem.
    Also, when it turns on, the batteries are empty within 5 minutes!
    WTF is this? Samsung doesnt even know this model, on their site there is nothing about the D73!

    I too have the same problem and know of a frined who also has the same camera ... the only way I fixed it last time was to take it into a camera shop and they said to plug it into the PC for a while and switch it on .... this worked for another 6 months and now I cannot even get it on with brand new batteries for the PC to even recognise it! I am going to complain to Samsung online please join me as this is a nightmare ... I am on my holidays with the best sites in Australia and no photographs!!

    Well i think we have the same problem we've put lots of new batteries in and we must have more luck than most because at least we get to press the shutter button before it dies Oh by the way this is a replacement camera our first one did the same and went back to Makro

I had the same problem, but it appeared, when my rechargeable batteries died.. it just friezed  while the lens was coming out. it came out abaout a half of it's length.. tried connecting to pc, different batteries, until pressed the lens a bit towards camera and then tried to pull it out a bit - and it came back again. It started to work. So I gues all of your problems has something to do with the lens.

Had a very similar problem, the camera beeped three times but no lens action at all. what i did was sparingly applied wd40 useing a q tip all around the lens circles with the camera lens face up and left it for ten minutes for the wd40 to penatrate, then here comes the tricky. part turned the camera lens down and as i turned it on i tapped the corner of the camera on to the edge of the table useing my mouse mat as a cushionand hepresto out came the lens and the camera turned on i cleaned allround the lens and all was ok good luck with yours

Try using alkaline batteries.. shop bought batteries such as morrison's own are generally very poor

I have the same problem; but it happened right after I accidentally used non-rechargable batteries after charging them. I'm looking for a way to reset the camera and see if this works, I also have no computer cable.

My Samsung ES63 camera won't turn on even though it's fully charged. It makes a weird bleep instead.

did the camera sustain any drops or water damage?
if not then i would recommend to take it back to the manufacturer and request a refound for the defective equipment.

My camera wont stay on it bleeps once then turns off

That sounds like your battery could be dead/not hold a charge. If you've charged your battery already and your camera still won't stay off and turns off right away, it's time to purchase a new battery for your Samsung TL105.

You can purchase replacement batteries quite cheap here:

My Samsung Digimax S800 Camera, when push power bottom, the camera green lite near power button and camera bleeps twice. Then turn off. Zoom len is fully extended. Chnage Battery three times.

this problem is a is usual occurrence when the camera is not well powered.
ie. the battery might not have enough charge on it or might have gone bad and require you to replacei it.

please ensure you get the battery with right voltage and wattage, the required is usually written around or in the battery compartment.

Hello my camera is a samsung digimax d73 and when i turn it on it says its locked and would like to know how to corrected thanks ernie

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
