Having problems with your Samsung S860 Digital Camera ?

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!?


Answers :

The drive motor and actuator for the auto focus is defective, this is the most common problem i see after battery issues, yes the camera can be fixed, but here is the deal, they don't sell the parts to fix it to the public, only Samsung authorized repair stations (listed in the user manual) can get the parts, u need a manual just to get it apart and special tools, so it comes to this u must balance the cost of repair against the replacement cost of the camera. They may offer an exchange program, other camera makers so like Canon and Sony, call and check into it.

Canon SD4000 camera, when hitting the power button, the screen remains black screen, the green light blinks twice, lens zooms out, shutter opens. Screen remains black, and I do not seem to have any control at all; pressing the zoom button doesn't move lens, no notable reaction to anything. Hit the power button again, the lens zooms back into it's original position, shutter closes (occasionally does not shut completely), green light blinks twice, screen remains black. Tried turning on w/o SD card

Inoperable When click camera "on", the lens protrudes only slightly, goes no further and I cannot see an image either through viewfinder or screen; the orange indicator light does not illuminate. Sometimes I hear the camera motor working, but nothing happens with the lens.. When I press "off", camera recedes normally. When I move the lever to view, green light illuminates and I'm able to view previous photos normally. I would greatly appreciate response promptly, since there are some beautiful s

I have an Akai digital camera model DC6371. On start up the lens pops out and screen lights up, but then the screen closes down and (often) the lens remains out even when the camera has been turned off. On trying to operate it again today, the green light indicates the camera is on for a few seconds and the screen lights up momentarily, but the lens doesn't pop out and the camera closes down again.


Looks like you have the notorious lens stuck problem. Since you said it pops out occasionally but does not go in, it is probably a faulty motor or some kind of mechanical obstruction. A qualified camera should be able to fix this for you but I recomm ... Akai DC6371 Digital Camera

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?

Hi, my friend dropped my samsung PL500 camera on the floor in a dusty place. The lens is now stuck however, it turns on, beeps and freezes on a black screen. The on button is lit up blue and the light next to the playback button is green. I'm not sure what to do here as I can not send it off to be fixed because i've been told i might as well 'buy a new one' .. I would like to just easily fix it by myself. Your sincerly, Shannon.

Samsung L730 My camera appears to be stuck. The lens usually pops out when it is turned on. However, when I turned it off today, it remained out. I tried removing the memory card and battery. Also, it won't turn off unless I remove the battery. When it is on, the screen is black and the usual green light goes off after initially pressing the power button. Is there a way to reset it?

A95 Trouble My camera will not turn on. If i press the on/off button the little green light goes on, the lens starts to extend out, then a beeping noise sounds and it shuts off. On the screen, its black and a tiny code is displayed on the bottom that says "E18"


The E18 error is fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
