I got my camera 2 christmases ago, used it that day, and then not since, because I needed to buy a memory card. Then I put it back in the original box which got stored in another box, and I forgot that I had it. I was reminded of it and decided to go and buy a memory card to begin using it. I put in new batteries (out of the package today) and it turned on, beeped 3 times and turned off. I tried this solution with every kind of battery I could find, and still nothing. What am I supposed to do with it now?

Re: camera wont turn on
As i've posted with many other problems like this, ensure you aren't using alkaline batteries. I have had similar problems with Samsung cameras before. The one I was using behaved much better on rechargeables or oxyride disposable batteries. It's nuts that this one was supplied with a pair of alkalines in the box :(

@ alan o'brien, Samsung D53 digimax draws a lot of current from the battery thus, you need to replace your batteries with a HIGHER current ratings, sufficient enough to run the motor. This miniature motor inside the D53 camera drives the reduction gears functions, to extend and retract the mechanical lens. During this processes it is drawing a lot of current from the battery. In order to conserve and prolong battery power avoid zooming in and out, utilize the function speed 50-400 and manually adjust aperture to minimize the unnecessary use of flash. In other words, go manual mode. Here's the battery specs. 2800ma NiMH rechargeable battery. Refer and follow manufacturers recharging instructions for best result. Do not leave batteries inside the camera even when not in use because the circuit inside is still on the standby mode and not necessarily off. Hope i have satisfy your curiosity. If you can, kindly share with me some of your best photo taken from your D53 digimax. Thank you.
The camera lens is jammed, caused by dirt or worn out gears. a camera technician would be solution but not cheap, or you can take matters in your own hands and try a risky trick "NOT RECOMMENDED" take the palm of your hand and sharply hit it around the lens housing and applying power as you do so in an effort to get lens to retract, if you are lucky it will work or make things worse.
First, make sure you have a charged battery. Once you have that, try turning it on, and gently press on the lens to try to help it reseat. You might try googling the problem, there are free suggestions to try before you take it to a repair facility. But if you do decide to have a shop fix it, get an estimate first. Oftentimes, the repair is about what you will pay for a good, used camera on Ebay.
i called the company (1-888-553-4448) olympusamerica.com and they told me to send it in and they will repair it for 70.95 plus a 6months warranty because i cant find my reciept. they also said what eva is wrong with it they will be able to repair it, but if u have ur warranty u can send it to them it wont cost u anything because u have ur reciept.
had the same problem with my D53 eneded up buyin a new camera pulled the D53 out the other day was going to toss it then i noticed the lense was just a lil crooked i played with it a freed it up camera works great now
I had the exact same problem. Camera turned on but turned off soon after, with lens still outside. Not to mention that awful beeping noise. I noticed the lens was crooked as if it was stuck. I pulled it out and I heard it click into place, for a second I thought I had broken it. I then turned it on . waited & it remained on, I turned it off and the lens went in and it turned off! It was working again. Good Luck!
