Having problems with your Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera ?

Lens stuck, green Power light flashes, nothing happens.

\015 Have tried every basic solution I could find on this site. None worked. Batteries are fully charged....camera has not been dropped and has not gotten wet. Everyone else mentions their camera beeping 3 times. Mine does nothing...except when I push the Power On button, the green light will FLASH.\015

Answers :

I had the same problem with my camera. I managed to turn around the lens while the camera tried to open / close it. Since I did not know which one is the right direction, I tried very gently to turn to both directions and one of them worked .
But even now whenever I open or close the camera, it does struggle to open/close the lens. There must be a problem with the lens moving part.
Get a butter knife or any thin object like that\015\012and use it to push out the lens and turning it on at the same time \015\012you will hear a clicking noise which is normal \015\012once completely out, use your hand with a gentle but firm presure move it form left to right 
and then hopefully it should work after that

Additionally, when I press the power button or the play button on the back, the LCD lights up and says Sony, but nothing else happens.

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.

I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

Coolpix L18: The LCD screen is broken; just displays a large black "blob" on a white background. Would this prevent all other camera operations? When the camera is turned on, the green power light flashes, but nothing else seems to work. Camera will "beep" when shutter button is pressed, but lens never opens. Is this a LCD issue, or are there other problems as well?
