Lens wont shut completely
\015 My cover for my lens doesnt shut all the way also my batteries are draining very fast. I'm wondering if this is a result of the lens not shutting or being hung up, anyones help will be greatly appreciated!\015\012\015\012Aaron\015
Hello,\015\012as you said lens cover does not shut it means camera is in working \015\012mode so naturally it drains the batteries. Actually the problem is in the lens assy. so go to samsung shop.\015\012\015\012\015\012good luck...
The camera's lens sutters won't cause battery problems. Quite often the shutters get knocked slightly out of line or maybe the solenoid get's a Bit dry.\015\012\015\012The batteries maybe the problem. Are they getting a bit old or are they not being fully charged? This would cause premature shut down of the camera and even stop the shutter solenoid from operating due to insufficient voltage.\015\012\015\012The camera itself is designed to close itself down after so many minutes of none use and unless a light or two stays on the camera is indeed closing down.\015\012\015\012Buy yourself a new set of 2600Mah NimH batteries, make sure they're fully charged and try them. It should solve your problem.BMW

Lens error When I first power on my camera, it tells me to retry power on. When I do, it says lens error and shuts down. The lens will extend and then close before the power shuts off, however it does not close fully. The protective shutter on the lens doesn't close completely. I have tried removing the battery and letting the camera sit for awhile hoping that the camera will reset, however this has been of no help.
