Answers :

This is not a user solvable problem. One thing that should not be done is to turn on the camera when it has been dropped in dirt, sand or water. This will, in your case, grind the dirt around and parts try to move and contaminate additional parts of the camera. It's only worse if water is involved as this will likely cause shorts in electrical areas.
Take the camera to a repair shop and get their opinion on whether it is fixable and if so what they estimate the cost to be. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new or used camera.

I have a Samsung L201. I dropped my camera today (lens down) on sand, and now the lens won't go back it. Every time i turn it on it sounds a distinct 4x buzz sound, followed by a pause and then 3 beep sounds, followed by another 4x buzz sounds. There is no sand noticeable anywhere in the mechanism and was picked up as soon as it was dropped. Can I do anything to reset it myself? Please help. Thank you :)

How do I get sand out of my OlympusFE-100? Dropped it in the sand now it won't turn on. When it tries to turn on the zoom just goes out and in several times and then it shuts down. I am hoping that I can clean out the sand somehow.

I would be hesitant about cleaning it out yourself. If you use canned air, then you may make the problem worse by blowing sand deeper into the works. If you disassemble, critical alignment of the lense may be lost.Take the camera to a W ... Olympus Camedia Brio D-100 Digital Camera

GDay, I have a black spot in my image. I previously dropped the camera in the sand. Sand had blocked up the opening shutter. I have since tried to remove the sand in the opening mechanism. Any ideas about the black spot? And how to remove it. Many thanks

While at the beach, someone threw a frizbee at my wife and she dropped the camera in the sand. We were careful as we could be picking it up to avoid entrance of sand into the camera.
