Having problems with your Samsung SL30 Digital Camera ?

My Camera have 3 months of use and now the lens don't save when i turn off. Works well, but i have to force the lens inside when i stop use it.


Answers :

Don't force it, you'll break it.

You can try some of the fixes listed in this link as it's likely to just be a bit of dirt stuck in the mechanism, but given that the camera is only three months old it's fully covered by the manufacturer's warranty as long as there's no evidence that you have been clumsy or have tried repairing it yourself.

I hope that you get your camera working again and that you found my reply to be of use. If so, please rate my answer.

Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?! Many thanks

HI! I have a one year old Lumix DMC-FS15 that I barely used for some personal photos, I bought a 4 GB SDHC memory card with it, it used to work just fine but now whenever I turn o the camera I message saying that the pictures will be saved on built in memory.

Hi. I use my Nikon D2x and 80-200 f2.8 zoom extensively, generally with a Hama cable release. Recently, the set-up stopped working. The camera focuses, but the release will not trip the shutter. The only clue (with a freshly formatted 16Gb CF card in use) is r17 in the viewfinder, although the manual fails to mention what this means. The cable release works perfectly on my D700 with the same lens. Anyone any ideas? Paul Perton Cape Town


This problem seems to your camera Auto-Focus, first I suggest reset all the focus settigns in your camera.If the "r17" message come on again, and, if you try anything more then that can damage your camera so you can contact your nearest s ... Nikon D2X Digital Camera

Here we are on our DREAM trip West, currently at the Grand Canyon. Now, with my D80 getting an 'F---' error message in my LCD settings area. Was using my 18-135mm lens. Finally, and regrettably, switched to my telephoto and error message disappeared. This AM put the 18-135 lens back on and worked perfectly for a few inside shots inside our RV.


Use a clean moist cloth and clean the electrical contacts on the back of the lens and in the mount on the body. When putting the lens back on, try jiggling the lens a little and see if that helps. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

I have a Nikon D70 (with a 18-55mm lens) and have always used it in Auto mode. It suddenly stopped working in auto mode...won't take the picture at all. Did I break the lens??? If I tip the camera back and forth the lens will move (zoom in and out) by itself...don't remember it doing that before??? Fixable or do I need a new lens?

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??

I have a FE4010 camera. Whenever I try and turn on the camera, the lens barrel comes in and out 3 times and then retracts and the camera shuts off. I assume it is sand because after using it in somewhat sandy conditions this happened. I've tried tapping and twisting when I can hold the lens and stop it from retracting, but nothing works. Any ideas besides taking it apart?

Dropped Camera. Basically, the thing stopped working. DMC-FZ1 It was dropped from a tripod it landed Lens DOWN. So it kind of smashed into it maybe? But nothing on the outside seems to be actually broken. The lens is crooked, but thats all that seems to be wrong. Yet it won't turn on at all. Maybe if someone could suggest something? Perhaps maybe something needs to be fidgeted around inside? Or is it a better idea if I pay a professional? But whatever the case. Anyone who has any suggestions it
