Is it notifieing you that there is a lens eror? or does it just not turn on? This type of problem you won't be able to fix yourself, and don't try to either! You will need to contact Kodak and tell them there is a lens eror (don't give details that you shouldn't be giving), hopefully they will be willing to fix it for you or replace with refurb.

    Yes, I understand, I had the same problem.
    What you CAN try, is: Very softly, try moving the lens to all directions. It might just be stuck on some metal. If it does not work, just use my first solution

Beach dust dropped in beach.


Cameras and beaches don\'t do well at all. The most important thing is to remove as much sand as possible without scratching any part of the camera. I\'d suggest to not wipe it at all, but take it home and try to vacuum the sand and dust off. It can get wedged in the drive mechanism for the lens focusing and will stop the camera from going through its normal initialization cycle. Check around the edges of where the lens moves in and out for sand, and try to suck it out.

The lens is stuck, it doesn't come out


Hi, This is a very common problem with digital cameras. The lense is a very complicated piece that has motors sensors focus motors that can see clearly at a distance or close or in between. So any rough handling or trying to open lense in a case or pocket by accidental getting its on button pushed is a death sentence for lenses on digital cameras, dirt sand etc getting in the conical tube setup is not good either, they CAN NOT be mishandled if you think that that bump the camera got wasn't that bad the lense will have the final say and odds are it will say NO. Final thought is it's broke so try wiggling the lense with you fingers,tapping gently on a hard surface if it don't fix it it is still broke and probably to expensive to repair.

I have an sl502 camera that I bought new for my son and shortly after I bought it it stopped working. It beeps 3 times and does nothing. I am very dissatisfied as well as disappointed with this product....


Hi Jim

If the camera was bought new and is less than a year old, return to the store where you bought it and ask about warranty repair, or call the Samsung from the paperwork inside the box.

The camera sounds like it has a stuck lens, either from being dropped or maybe getting sand/dirt into the lens gears and jamming it up. There's not much you are going to be able to do with it, lenses are very delicate and complex. Some may tell you to blow compressed air into it or bang it on the table, you can do these things if you like and don't mind risking further damage to your camera.

So: Less than a year old? Warranty repair. More than a year old? Might have to pay Samsung for repair, I don't see refurbished lenses available for this model and a new lens would be about $125 or more. Hope this helps.

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.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try:
