Having problems with your Samsung BL103 Digital Camera ?
Lens stuck half way outm weird beep sound can I fix it
\015 The lens seems to be frozen in this position and it beeps do I need to have it repaired or is it something i can do to fix it\015
I get the three beeps also but the lense is fully retracted. I'm no expert but I've had this camera fixed once (would not focus) and is going back in for this latest issue. I like the little thing but I wish it would not break as much as it has. On the other hand I've had great esxperiences with smasung's warranty service. If your camera was purchased less than a year ago it is still under warranty and a quick call to samsung will get you a shipping lable to an authorized repair center free of charge. You only pay for shipping to the repair center.

Stuck Lens I fell on my camera just recently and the lens is stuck open half way. When you power it on it moves a bit to the side and up, then to the other side and up and then beeps couple of times. You can view all the pictures and see the opening screen when you turn it on on picture-taking mode but it won't open up completely. Is it possible to fix? If so how?

Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?!

Dropped camera Hello, My daughter dropped her camera half on the grass with the lens part hitting the pavement. Now the lens is almost all the way out, but is stuck at an angle.

Hi there, I dropped my Casio Exilim (EX - Z80) a while ago and the lens got stuck half out. However after a while it fixed itself and I can record videos on it perfectly but when I take photos they come out too bright, as if I'm taking photos in the sun with the flash on. Is there an easy way to fix this or am I going to have to spend a fortune? Thanks, Hollee

I bought a Polaroid i733 Digital Camera for my daughter in March, 2007. A couple of weeks ago when she went to change the batteries, the lens got stuck half way out. Now it won't work. By the looks of things on line, it looks like this is an inherant problem with this model. Is it still covered under warranty? If not, any idea what the approximate cost to fix it would be?
