    i have the same kind of problem. i went to turn my camera off and the lens went in half way and froze. i tried to turn it back on, and the green light came on, the screen stayed black and the lens stayed frozen. i changed the batteries and then tried to turn it on and it did the same thing. so i plugged it into my computer and my computer didn't even detect it. so i don't know what to do.

Why has my samsung camera froze. It will not open with different batteries.

Is the lens stuck? Does the camera come on at all.
If not, then the camera may need repair.
It may not be worth repairing, in which case you may want ot sell it as a camera for repair or parts on a site such as Ebay. (include all that came with it, and you may get more).

The stupid thing won't power up anymore. I try and cut it on and the green light just flickers then goes off. it froze when the lens was out too which means its been stuck that way for a while. I didn't...

I found that cheap (new) batteries will not work in my camera. Duracell or Rayovac seem to work best.
I added 2 (new) cheaper batteries it took 1 picture the lenses would not retract and the battery light flickered. I found 2 new Durnacell and it works fine now. Hope this helps.

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....

you need to take it to a camera shop, they probally have this problem more then you might imagine. 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

Samsung s860 camera lens will not close and is out of focus.

I hate to say it but your camera needs to be serviced. Might not be worth the repair. Try to take it to a local repair center that would offer you a free estimate....
