Will not turn on

My shutter lens is open and when I try to turn on my camera the green light comes on for a few seconds, then the camera beeps and shuts down again.  I have tried new batteries but no avail.  Can you please offer any solution as to why this has happened.

Sounds like your lens is stuck. Try a gentle tug and it should open all the way. Then you can power your camera down.

Turns on for 1/2 second and turns off


It sounds like the focus element inside the lens is stuck. This is usually either due to an impact knocking the elements out of alignment, or to sand/debris entering the focus motor's gear drive and preventing it from rotating. The buzzing sound you hear is the focus motor attempting to rotate, but buzzing up against some obstruction. When the lens extends, you hear a buzzing sound, and then the lens retracts - this is usually the cause of the issue. Unfortunately there is not much you can do externally to fix this problem. The camera will need to be taken apart and repaired by a professional or by the manufacturer. David Millier http://advancecamera.com/repair

Samsung Digimax D53 will not stay on


This is most likely a lens failure. Try contacting your manufacture if your camera is still under warranty. If not, try contacting your local electronic repair shop to get it fixed. Hope this helps!

My Samsung won't turn on :(


Try to move the lens a bit or straighten it out, that usually works when it makes the three beep sounds.

My samsung L830 camera has jammed with the lens open and


Just had this happen to my L100. First, take out the battery and wait a couple hours for everything to cool down and discharge. Then place the battery back in. Then plug the USB cord into the camera and PC. Then turn the camera on and it should be okay. Just worked for mine.

My samsung l830 camera lens is stuck open and when i press the power button it beeps 3 times and remains blue then does nothing


If the lens on the camera is stuck out, look to see if it's a little crooked. If it is, try to gently straighten it. If it still won't retract, try to gently push it in as you turn the power on.
If it won't turn on (the green light blinks and it beeps 3 times) push and hold the 'power' button and the 'play' button at the same time for a few seconds - it worked for my S730. Good luck!

"turn off and on again"


a few weeks ago i dropped my camera in the sea and i thought, ****. i was in the same boat, so i opened the shutter myself and turned on the camera and it works and takes pictures but the shutter wont close again so if you can make sure you have no dirt in your lense and you can manually open the shutter yourself it may work and if it stops turning on all together keep charging it and once it goes green turn the switch off and on again until it always turns green then it should work again.

HELP! dropped camera, lens won't go back in, shutter won't close


$100 is hardly expensive, and at that cost it would be cheaper to replace it than have it repaired. In future, keep it on the neck strap.
