Having problems with your Samsung Digimax L730 Digital Camera ?

Samsung L730 Lense Stuck Open...

\015 Okay. I got my Samsung L730 Digital Camera last Christmas (of 2007) and it worked fine. But then on March 13, 2008 I was looking through some of my pictures and I was zooming in on one of them and the screen just went completely blank...black. And the lens of the camera is still open. It's stuck/frozen. I tried turning it on but nothing happened. I tried charging it and nothing happened. I did not damage it in any way. Is there anything that I can do? Thanks in advance.\015

I have the same problem.. suddenly everything became blurry. mem card and battery out does nothing .. fiddle fiddle fiddle then all of a sudden it starts working correctly again - focussing clearly... took 1 or 2 photos then all of a sudden, it reverted back to its crappy state again. 3 days later its still in its crappy state of focus and seeing that a lot of people have the same problem with no real solution pisses me off. might as well chuck it in the bin now and save time ...
I too was having problems as my camera switched on but had a blurry screen and would not focus.
I\015\012took out the battery while switched on and carefully cleaned the lens\015\012and magically when i placed the battery back and and switched it on\015\012...IT WORKED!!!!
thanks for your advice.....was going to throw the camera away!!!!!!!

Lense Issue When I turn on the camera the lense started to move out and then got stuck. How when you turn it on it just trys to adjust the lense but again it is stuck.

My lense is stuck open despite turning my camera off. On turning my camera on I am told ''turn camera on off then on'' but the lense does not retract.
