Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z3 Digital Camera

Flash problems, Casio Ex-z3

I own a Casio EX-Z3 digital camera and for a couple of months have been having problems with the flash. The camera works perfectly in light conditions but it next to useless at night. When the camera is used with the flash the result is often a dark, reddish-hued, picture. The flash usually doesn't go off. Sometimes the opposite is true and the picture is flooded by the flash. The best chance I have of getting the flash to go off at all is to wait for the flashing light next to the view finder to stop flashing then take the picture in that instant. Taking pictures this way seems to result in the flash flooding the picture. If I wait a couple of second the flash doesn't go off at all and the picture is red-hued again. Could this be a problem with the battery? The battery life still seems to last as long as it always has. My non-expert opinion is that it could have something to do with the way the flash charges and discharges. Could this be linked to the battery? In which case would replacing the battery solve my problem?

Re: Flash problems, Casio Ex-z3

Try resetting your camera. Sometimes it is just an issue with the flash charging. In rec mode press menu go to setup tab go up to reset press right arrow highlight reset press set If that doesn't work then u will have to send it in. :)

Casio Exilim EX-Z3 not working (accidentally dropped on carpet)

Does the lens retract when you shut the camera off? Or at least press the On/Off button?

It doesn't sound like there is a problem with the lens if your buttons aren't working, it sounds mostly to me that a cable got dislodged and that has disabled your buttons and zoom switch.

You can try sending it to this guy - he might beable to help you.

"lens error" on casio ex-z3

Sorry to say but a lens error actually is a problem that you cannot fix at home. When a lens error occurs, the motors inside that make the lens retract and protract were some how damaged, usually caused if the lens try coming out when you have it in your pocket or against a surface so it cant fully come out. You will have to send the camera in for service and you can do that by calling 1-800-706-2534, option 1.

Casio Exilim EX-Z3 Displays turns off when taking a picture

I have the exact same problem. Casio wants the camera mailed in and charges $79 for a new LCD screen (if that is the problem). Any other suggestions?
