Having problems with your Samsung S860 Digital Camera ?

My Samsung S860's lens will not close. The camera is off though. Everytime I try to turn it on, the green light comes up, until I take my finger off of the button. The screen doesn't show up or anything. I've changed the batteries, so that isn't the problem. What should I do?

They could replace the lens, as you have had the camrea only 7 months, its probally still under the manufactuer warranty. look for the manufactuer contact details in the booklet which came with the camera and give them a ring

Everything seems to be working but the shutter release button. It does nothing, even depressing the button halfway for metering shows nothing. no indicators in viewfinder info line. I assumed it was a third party Battery problem, as there was a Impact battery being used primarily at the time. However replacing the Battery with a pentax battery didn't change anything. Camera not dropped, or damaged in any way, its a sudden problem i cannot seem to troubleshoot.

Not focusing I'm not sure what happened, nothing seems to be obstructing and to my extent of knowledge nothing has happened to my camera. However when I turn it on the lens comes out once, goes back in, and comes out again.

I have an Olympus FE-330 The problem I am having is when I take pictures at night, focusing on anything is impossible. The view shows black, until the picture is taken. After the picture has been taken it shows a great view of the picture in the screen. Even changing the setting to night, does nothing-it's black I honestly was thinking of replacing the camera for this reason, it is very frustrating. Other than that, it is a great little camera.
