S730 wont turn on

Ok I read the other postings but nothing helped or is the same. I hear the fizz sound but the camera won't turn on nor is the lens out. I put new batteries in and did nothing. I hadn't used the camera for about a month and left out batteries and card since I knew I wouldnt be using it. I haven't taken more than 50 pictures with it anyway and only about 6 months old. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Anyone had success at sending it back to samsung?

Same problem(s), and I have tried EVERY "Tip" I found on this website.... NOTHING!

So, I returned it to Samsung "Repair" - paying the freight, and they sent me back the SAME camera, saying they re-configured the "Charge", which means ??? IDK...

Within 4 days SAME EXACT PROBLEM!! I called & talked to 3 of the worst CS people EVER (do they recruit them from Fry's?). They said to send it back AGAIN - & of course I need to pay ALL freight. I asked how many times I would have to continue doing this until they "replaced" the camera... well we have in our records that there was nothing wrong with it the 1st time (!!!) - The NERVE!!?!?!?! So after 3 CS people all w/NO answers, they said they would email me the ticket info to return it again & have a "Manager" call me back. That was three months ago..... I gave up, figured I'd be better off using the freight $$$ & saving my time by just getting a different camera - ANYTHING but Samsung! NEVER again!!! They will not even acknowledge that this is a reoccuring, or common problem. And I see them advertising this piece of "****" daily STILL.

If anyone else found re-course, I would love to hear about it :)

I just had that same problem happen last night, which is frustrating considering vacation is one week away. The camera started working again after I held down the power button for several seconds. I don't know if this will work for you, but it got my camera working again.

Some stupid person has dropped and then kicked my brand new Samsung camera and now it won't turn on and the lens is stuck out :( When I try to turn it on it makes a weird beep and won't turn on and...

You should try to get that stupid person to buy you a new camera if the following doesn't help. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.

Last time I tried to turn on my camera (Samsung SL502) the lens came out but the screen didn't come on. I hit the power button again and nothing happened, now the lens is extended and won't go back...

Sounds like the lens mechanism is stuck - mine does the same thing after my 2 year old dropped it on the cement. Looking for a replacement lens now, but not having much luck. Read the previous posts for other solutions. Good luck!

Samsung s730 wont turn on even with fresh batteries???

The lens mechanism is jamming by the sounds of it.
You may be able to free it with gentle manipulations
I guess there is no repair option.

Camera lens stuck

We dropped our Samsung s730 (twice!) and got the lens jammed slightly sideways. I read a blog somewhere about this and just did what she said- If it is stuck out and obviously jammed sideways, push on the lens the way it should sit. I had to press really hard, but it snapped back into place and now works fine!

This WILL NOT work if: The lens retracts normally and goes back out normally, or it is not OBVIOUSLY stuck slightly askew. Sadly, with cameras this low in price about the only option is to replace it as repairs would cost more than a replacement.

In the future I plan on getting a damage warranty on ALL my small 'droppable' electronics, it is pretty inexpensive (usually the same price as 'store brand' extended warranties that only cover defects).
