Having problems with your Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera ?

Digimax S500 I get 3 beeps and lens is stuck is ther a solution to correct this proble?


Answers :

The lens stays in the outmost position although batteries are fully charged. This has happend twice. The first time I had a valid waranty so the problem was fixed for free. Now it has happend again and there seems to be no way to get the lens back into the camera. Also the display is totally black.
\015\012I guess I have taken about 500 pictures since the last repair. Not very much - even a cheap camera should last for longer than that.
\015\012Never Samsung again!!!

My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position. I get a screen that says lens error, restart camera, but when I try to connect to the software, I get a screen on the computer telling me the computer cannot detect the camera. Battery is freshly charged, and I get the little yellow bird picture on the camera when I turn it on. It beeps about 4 times, and then turns off. Is there a safe way to get the lens to retract?

When I turn the camera on, the lens cover opens and then closes. When I turn the camera off, the lens cover closes and then opens. So, how can I get the timing of the lens cover correct? Or can you tell me how I can keep the lens cover open all the time? (not the best solution but now I can't take a photo at all!)

Screen blackness I have the same problem. The lens is NOT stuck - it does deploy and the lens cover opens. I have replaced the batteries, tried a differant memory stick, and I turn it on and off to reboot. None of these solutions work. The camera is only a year or so old - it doesn't get a lot of use so it is not mishandled. Does anybody have any suggestions?
