Have you checked your batteries? If it's an old camera (keep in mind that it's not less than 3 years old) and you still use the original rechargeable batteries, they may need to be replaced as well.  Those rechargeable do not last for ever in a certain way. Go to a specialised photo shop and ask for your model. Hope that helps.

Camera lens is stuck in out position, but screen is not on, beeps three times when i push the on/off button


I had this problem with my Nikon CoolPix S500. The problem was that my step-daughter had dropped it while the lens was out, causing it to get wedged out of alignment. On close inspection, I could actually see that one edge of the lens was protruding just a little more than the opposite edge.

The fix was to gently but firmly press or tap on the edge that's protruding a little more, just to get it sufficiently unstuck for the low-torque built-in motor to retract it properly.

Once it's unstuck, you still need power it off and on a couple of times to reset and recalibrate the in and out positions. Good luck!

It turns on but beeps 3 times then shuts off


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
This indicates that the Camera lens is retracted, to D.I.Y be careful not to be aggressive with the Gadget If the lens is retracted, hold up the camera to your eye and look at the lens. If you see one end sticking out a little bit, push that side in and press the power button. It should work. If the lens isn't retracted, push the lens around until it is in its regular position. When you press the power button, it will retract and come out again and should work fine.
If the procedure above does not resolve the problem, your camera requires service, fill out our online service request form so that we can further diagnose and correct the problem.
I hope this will help you out, If you are still having issues/questions, do ask.

If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.

Three beeps when i try to turn it on


i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

Samsung L100 digital camera beep problem


If the lens is retracted, hold up the camera to your eye and look at the lens. If you see one end sticking out a little bit, push that side in and press the power button. It should work.
If the lens isn't retracted, push the lens around until it is in its regular position. When you press the power button, it will retract and come out again and should work fine.

Hope this advice helps!

My samsung l830 camera lens is stuck open and when i press the power button it beeps 3 times and remains blue then does nothing


If the lens on the camera is stuck out, look to see if it's a little crooked. If it is, try to gently straighten it. If it still won't retract, try to gently push it in as you turn the power on.
If it won't turn on (the green light blinks and it beeps 3 times) push and hold the 'power' button and the 'play' button at the same time for a few seconds - it worked for my S730. Good luck!

Polaroid i735 Camera won't turn on. Lens stuck.


I had the same problem, and fixed it by wiggling the lens a little, when turning it on.
After a few tries, it finally wiggled free, and the lens retracted.

Camera DSC-W% is not getting on and lens not retracting


Try turning it on while manually pulling the lens assembly ever so lightly. Also try the same thing pushing it in, if that doesn't work.
Hope that works. Ed
