Question about Casio EXILIM EX-Z1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Focus & Zoom motor out of sync

Hello sir,
My name is Corey & I own a casio EX-Z1000. Unfortunately I have this problem that I can turn the camera on in file mode but not picture mode. The lens comes out, beeps like it is turning on than shuts off. I am a telephone repair man who is good with my hands & fixing things. The problem is that I live in Michigan & we are in DIRE Straights up here due to the economy. I almost bought a new battery with money I do not have until I read your solution. Thank you very much for saving me the money. That alone will pay for my internet bill for the next couple of months so God bless you. I bought the camera years ago when times were good. My question is do you think I may be able to fix it myself or will I probably do more harm than good? Also is there a simple explanation of how to sync the focus & zoom motor up? You have already saved me total fustration on top of the guilt I would have had spending money on a new battery. But I would like to hear it straight meaning "if youv'e never done it don't try or it is possible". I'm so bummed. It stinks owning such an expensive piece of equipment that doesn't work properly. If you have a moment I would be greatfull recieving a reply.
Thankyou Sir.

Turns on for 1/2 second and turns off


It sounds like the focus element inside the lens is stuck. This is usually either due to an impact knocking the elements out of alignment, or to sand/debris entering the focus motor's gear drive and preventing it from rotating. The buzzing sound you hear is the focus motor attempting to rotate, but buzzing up against some obstruction. When the lens extends, you hear a buzzing sound, and then the lens retracts - this is usually the cause of the issue. Unfortunately there is not much you can do externally to fix this problem. The camera will need to be taken apart and repaired by a professional or by the manufacturer. David Millier http://advancecamera.com/repair

I dropped my Casio EX-Z1000 on a tile floor. The camera turns on and the lens goes out and quickly retracts and camera shuts off. I can still view pictures on my card and can enter info on date, time, etc....


Unfortunitly when ever a digital camera is dropped it can cause the lens to come out of alignment this is what causes the error or problem. The len has several moving parts and can be replace most of the time it knocks the focus motor and zoom motor out of sync thust causing the lens to go out to try and post and sience the camera can tell the alignment is off then the lens goes back in. The repair for this should be around 100.00 I just got through fixing 2 of these for the same problem. Sorry but I hope this helps.

Can't e-mail video


Email systems will not allow file attachments over 10Mb in size, and video files are huge. The way to avoid it in the future is to record videos with a free service like mailVU.com, which allows 10 minute webcam videos to be emailed to anyone. It's free to use.

Blurry pictures, beep-click noise


Angie, You can call the repairs dept and they can give you a pretty good idea over the phone of how much it will cost. Their number is 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1. They might ask you to send it in so they can look at it but they will send you an estimate of what it would cost to fix it before they do any work. If your camera will stay on long enough you can try resetting the camera but I doubt if that will do anything.
