Having problems with your Samsung Digimax S730 Digital Camera ?

Why is the camera beeping?

\015 Was using the camera with no problems. Turned same off. Went to use it later and when I went to turn on the camera the lens opened, the images appeared, it beeped and then shut-off automatically. I have had this camera for about 8 months. Can you please help and let me know why this is happening?\015

Answers :

I had t he three beep problem and also the lens was open. I tried batteries - then i noticed the lens was slightly bent - i tried straightening and it snapped and went into place. then i tried turning it on and it was fine and when i turned it off the lens closed.
\015\012Maybe your lens is bent.
I believe its because it is a p.o.s. .... samsung is cheap. my camera does the same thing. thankfully i still had the receipt and i sent it in. they supposively fixed it but it sometimes does the same beeping again. very badly made camera.
