Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Washing Machine and DigitalCams dont mix

Recently, i went paintballing and took a lot of photo's. After which, i washed my paintball pants and unknown to me, my Casio Exlim EZ-Z60 was in my pocket, so i found it after the washer had turned off.

I have been airing it out for 3 days now, and the only way it will turn on is if i hold the power button, or to press the power button once then again after a second or so, and then it makes a noise like if you were to go to the gallery, and will show a screen that says "Adjust" and it has a Time&Date setup, but my keypad doesn't have any affect on the screen.

If i try to turn it on normally, it will flash the green power light and stay black, a couple minutes later it will make a noise as it turns itself off.

Help me please. I would really really appreciate some feedback that might help.

If it requires taking apart i have the materials required to do so. I figured that would be a last resort, in the case it couldn't be replaced and that i cant get any help.

Sorry if the replay comes late, but whenever that happen with any electronic device, the best thing to do is, first off all remove the batteries, after is to taking it apart and just wash with alcool, to remove the water and humidity, and after dry it up, u can still trying it, therefore just do it as quick as possible.

good luck

There is no way to say what went wrong, a digital camera is a very complex machine, lots of very tiny circuits and components that can malfunction. The best thing do here is just replace it or have it exchanged for refurbished camera. Information on getting it repaired is in the user manual for the camera.

I have a canon powershot sx200 IS and I recently went on vacation and took a lot of pictures using teh SD memory card provided with the camera. For some reason, after almost filling the card I received a...

The likely reason this keeps happening is that these cards weren't formatted in the camera when you first got them. However, don't do so just yet as formatting also erases the card. If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones. Now AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the cards IN THE CAMERA USING THE CAMERAS FORMAT FEATURE. Look for it, it's located under the "tools" menu (look for the item stating the card's memory capacity). This should rejuvenate both cards, and prevent reoccurrence.

If you have them on a removable card, try them in a card reader.

It's quite likely there's nothing wrong with the photo's, but your camera may have a problem.

Unable to View Photos/Video - is my SD card to blame?

The question to ask is - is you camera happy with a 2 Gig card? Coming to files on the card you could try one or more of the recovery programs for example for 'pc inspector' see what this manages to pull up. You also try 'Irfanview' which has a little more latitude at file discrimination that a regular editor.
