I bought my casio digi-cam 1,5 years ago and during my vacation last week, this problem occured:
I wanted to take a coupling shot and suddenly the cam crashed (not physically) - the display slowly turned black (off). The prob was that the lens stayed "outside", nothing worked anymore. at home: after putting it into the docking station the lens went back, the viewing worked, I could see all the pix, my SD card works properly, the battery was tested today, its alright!
and now i have no clue what to do! whats the problem??
any advices for me?? i love my cam and dont want to buy a new one....but I think thats the only solution, right? :-(
send it back for reparation is expensive and takes a long time - no money no time ;)
Many thanks for yall help in advance!!!

Okay I just fixed this on my camera the same thing. First make sure your battery is charged. You will need to get a paper clip. Take the battery out and unfold the clip so that you can use it to pull up the contacts between the battery positive and negative and the camera. The conductors need to touch the positive and negative on the battery. If you battery is dead you will need to do this as it will not charge your battery on the cradle becaue there was no connection. over time I think that the battery loses its connection and the spring is not strong enough to push up the battery far enough. I ordered a battery charger and new battery and it still didnt work so I started to tinker with it. I held the battery with my finger pushing it up and holding it, and simaltaneuously powered on the camera. Thats when I figured it wasnt the battery but it wa the connection with the battery and the camera.
I have HAD the exact same problem. Turns out a whole bunch of people too. But there is a solution. You can get a free new battery by calling the casio technical support. 1-800-435-7732. They are very friendly. They'll ask you a few questions, like where you live, you number and your camera serial number[ under your camera ] and all you have to do is explain to them your problem. I got my new battery and now my camera works as good as new.
I think we have the same problem with the Exlim s600 model, if the camera take picture outdoor, the picture is almost white, with horizontal line. I have taken it to the repair center at Compex, Quezon Ave., They say the problem is in the camera CCD lense. which cost P7,500 to fix. A new one Casio 8.1 meg pixel, cost just about P8 to 9T. I bought mine March 2006, Use it for only about 35 times. got a feeling these camera were made to be broken just about after the warranty expire.
on the desktop click start, then search, then pictures, etc, then pictures and photos, then use advanced options and pick the hard drive, probably c and under when modified you can narrow it down to the last week or month or year
My camera charger was blinking red and the battery would not charge. I called Casio customer service and they offered to send one out! They did ask when the camera was purchased and I told them it was just a couple of months ago when it was actually more than a year. Casio 1-800-435-7732
I don't believe a "lens error" can be fixed at home. That is something that is going to have to be sent in.
Sometimes if repairing the camera costs more than what it's worth Casio will offer you a trade up to a different model.
Call the repairs dept and ask them about that program. Their number is 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 1.
