Having problems with your Samsung Digital Cameras ?

My camera will turn on and go to the samsung screen and then it beeps three times and it turns off

Hi there,

Well it's just because of lens errors, they are very common in these digital cameras. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Follow the below steps to do a try to correct it -
1. Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh (or new) set of batteries back in and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on. (We know that you camera battery's are in good condition but the newest battery help better).
2. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).
3. Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins back into their slots. If further you have the same problem it means there is a gear-motor alignment of the lens which moves in and out with the help of motor. This part is replaceable at an authorized Samsung Service Center. You can follow the below link for tech support -  http://www.samsung.com/uk/info/contactus.html

The battery of my samsung s860 was recently dead so i though that was why the lens wouldnt go out all the way. I have tried two new sets of batteries and the camera is reacting the same way. The lense wont go out all the way, a blurry image is projected on the screen then the screen goes black, the green light flickers, it beeps rather obnoxiously three times and the lens retracks again as it turns off. can my camera be resuscitated!?
