Samsung S1065 beeps 3 times and nothing else

\015 I have a new samsung S1065 Camera and only used a few times. When the first set of batteries was running out, it would show on the screen that the batteries are running out. When I bought new ones (enegiser), I took a few shoots and then suddenly it beeps 3 times and goes off. Lenses are stuck out.\015

Answers :

If you have recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens\015\012tube (housing). This damage will prevent the lens from moving properly\015\012and will cause the camera to shut itself off after a few seconds. If\015\012the lens is damaged the camera will require professional repair. If\015\012the lens is not damaged, the problem may be battery related. Make sure\015\012that\015\012you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are\015\012fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion\015\012on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full\015\012battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy\015\012corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand\015\012paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery\015\012compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and\015\012reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about\015\01290% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Just bought my used camera from Salvation Army. I know I shouldn't expect it to work, but it does in a way. I'd like to know why when I turn the camera on, the ready light flashes a few times (7, maybe), but does nothing else. I can't hear inside the camera to see if anything else is trying to function. I hooked the camera up to the computer, and nothing happened. Not sure if this is because I didn't install the CD needed.
