Having problems with your Samsung BL103 Digital Camera ?
Beeps three times but does not come on, changed batteries, zoom stuck... not going back in
I found this answer on another forum. I giggled the lens as it was stuck out and then pushed the power button to guide it back closed. Then I gave it a soft whack on my palm when the lens was closed. I think I had a piece of sand stuck where the lens goes in and out. I also made sure that the battery type was Ni-Mh instead of alkaline on the menu. This is a recurring problem with Samsung cameras.

I own a canon s2 is power shot. Symptoms began with the digital zoom beeping and the screen going blank when invoked to draw an image closer. After a periood of time of avoiding the zoom, the camera lense stuck inside and gave an e18 message when beeping. I could still survey old pics but can't take new pics as the screen is blank and the lense won't come out. The warranty expired 10 months ago, I've tried forced air, changing batteries and mem card and pressing on the lense. The lense is off to

The entire zoom lens will not come out when I turn the camera on. It moves a little, makes a sound, and then my camera says turn off camera off and back on. I tried that several times and it is still not working. The battery is charged. I did go to the beach and wondering if sand got into the camera. I also cannot review my pictures as the message comes up about turning it off. What is the best solution?

Zoom error Today after using my camera for awhile the back screen displayed "zoom error" and a little sound whirled. Then the camera shut off by itself. I turned it on and off a couple of times, but without success. The lens is extended and will not withdraw back into the camera. I have taken out the batteries and re-inserted them. Finally, I gently pushed the lenses back to the body of the camera (as they seemed to be trying to go back to the camera), I am still getting the zoom error reading a

Zoom my camera isnt an olympus FE - 230 digital camera, its a kodak M836, i can look at my pictures okay, but i cant take any, as when i turn it on to take a picture the lens goes out, and then back it and it switches off. it is nothing to do with the battery as i have charged it several times. - my dad thinks that it goes back in because there is some sand inside (as we recently went on a beach holiday) and that the sand is stopping the zoom from coming out all the way, so it goes back in, alth

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.

Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing! Newbie in the extreme and ready to go back to my MX !!

How are the batteries supposed to go into the Vivicam8690? I've got a new one and can't get it to come on no matter how I put them in and there's no clear instructions (P.S. This is the second one -- took the first one back with the same problem so if I can't get it to work I'm going to ask for a refund this time)
Can you bring it back to the store or maybe call them to find out? The instructions should tell you, but sometimes they don't give much info. ... Digital Cameras

My fujifilm E550 digital camera has a problem where the cilyndrical piece in front that usually moves in/out is stuck half way (won't go back inside) and the camera will not take pictures. The camera is giving me a "zoom error" message. This problem started when the batteries where running out of charge. The problem is not resolving even when I put in fully charged batteries.
You may need to use some light "force" to manipulate the lens barrel into its proper orientation. Try a combination of turning it on and helping the barrel to rotate one way or the other. Also try a little manipulation when the camera is shut off, to ... Digital Cameras
