Two possible solutions:

1: Lens Error----If the camera powers on and then beeps a few times and then powers right back off.
Same as above but might also say "lens error" before shutting off.

2: Wrong size memory card --------The EXS880 can take up to a 1 gb memory card right out of the box. If you try to use a memory card larger than that you will have to see if there is a firmware upgrade available. Also Casio only recommends 3 brands of memory cards, they are Toshiba, Panasonic and Sandisc. Using any other kind can make your camera act funny.

If it is a lens error the only way to correct that is to send it into repairs. I would first make sure you are using the correct memory card. If you are then you have no choice but to send in and have it fixed.

Camera opens normally, only takes black pictures


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

My PowerShot A650 IS...the lens opens and closes


try charging the batteries to full when using the camera, if that did not work, update the firmware from CANON.COM.

if that also did not work, you need to visit the service centre as it could be a CCD problem or a shifted lens.

My daughter dropped her sister's Nikon Coolpix S560 in the sanddunes today with the lens open. It still took pictures after that but the lens wouldn't close. Now it opens and closes and makes a grating...


It seems that some sand particles are lodged between the lens casing and the camera's body. and when it finds that there is resistence in moving the lens, it shuts down. Use somethig that sucks, like the vacuum cleaner to **** the sand particles out. Do not blow, else the sand will go further in.

My son pulled out one of the shutters that opens and closes over the lens. The shutters no longer open all the way. The camera is brand new. How can I fix the rest of the shutters? Should I pull them...


You can pull off the other one if you want. To put it back in your basically going to have to take apart the camera. The "Shutters" on the outside is nothing more but to protect the lens will its in the camera. The actual shutter is inside the lens that open and closes very quickly when you take a picture.

Think of it this way, the shutter in the lens opens up to let in light that shows the image to the sensor behind the lens. Then it closes to "finish" capturing the light".

The "shutters" or "doors" on the outside do not move once you take a picture. They only close once the lens retract. (When the camera is turned off or idles)

Hope this has been helpful.

I think you mean your automatic lens cover opens. A stuck shutter is a common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure.

Coolpix lens opens retracts opens then closes again and lens error appears


Hello

When you turn the camera on the lens comes out and has parameters when extending to focus, if the lens does not open fully it sees a problem and then closes.

there are tiny plastic gears inside and may have chipped or a piece of sand got in causing the lens to jamb. "very fragile"

one solution is to ask a camera repair shop how much a lens mechanism would be to replace. (if cost is more than 1/2 of what you paid dont bother)

another solution is to have someone sell your camera on an auction site for parts, to make some money towards another camera purchase
