Having problems with your Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera ?

The lens doesnt close, the camera beeps 3 times and shuts off.


\015 I took a picture and the lens never closed. the screan is functional but when i turn the camera on it's all blurry, like it's out of focus. then the camera beeps three times and the screan shuts off, but the lens is still out. it wont close. when i turn the camera on (those few seconds before it beeps and shuts off) the buttons are not functional either.\015
