Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens assembly The lens assembly has become loose. One of the outer rings has actually detatched from the camera body.When switching on - either the message 'lens fault' is displayed or a very blurred image is displayed in the LCD. The camera shop reckons the problem is quite common and estimates $A200 to fix ie replace lens assembly. Any similar experiences? (Of course, the camera is 3 months out of warranty).

How do I switch to an aperture higher than f/32 on my nikon d3000?

Yes. Just lock the lens aperture ring at its smallest setting (largest f/number). If you need to change the aperture, change it from the camera body by turning the command dial, the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.

Small hair on inner lens needs removing as it gives a spot on the picture. can the outer lens be removed as a diy job?

This is a fixed lens camera and not a Do It Yourself type fix. The only thing I could suggest is to send it in for service which is more frustrating then the spot on the lens. These fixed lens cameras are not totally sealed but much better for not collecting dirt then a "normal" DSLR interchangeable lens camera. Unless you are using it in a dirty environment then I can't see how the "hair" actually got in there unless during assemble. However to answer your original question No this is not a DIY job

I need your help please, I fell with my Nikon camera, the body still works, but the 55-200mm lens does not work again, for seeing through the viewfinder the image is dark. The lens does not hit with...

Okay if you have luck all that's happened is you have jarred the lens contact between the camera body and lens. Make sure the camera is turned off then remove the lens and clean the gold contacts on both the lens and camera body. Remove the battery, install the lens and replace the battery, turn the camera on. If it still doesn't work shut the camera off and try another lens and see if it work properly this will tell you if it's the camera at fault or the lens. Switch lenses between known working cameras. I'm sure you will find the lens has come loose. I only once had a lens come apart from a jar (not impact) and it actual popped apart in pieces.

The lens has lost its ability to zoom. Any thoughts?

If you mean that you turn the zoom ring and nothing happens, they you need to take it in for repair. Theres not really anything on these lenses that you can fix without having the right tools and training.

If you actually mean that it won't focus, then check the switch on the lens and on the camera body, and also clean the contacts that you can see when you take the lens off the body. There is a set on the lens and also on the camera. Just use a cotton swab soaked in alchohol. Let it dry and put the lens back on.

Zoom error appears in viewfinder on FinePix S7000 and cannot take photos.. Please help


The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Error 99 is a generic error in that the camera does not know what the exact error is. The usual fix for this error is ......

Turn the camera off and remove the battery.

Remove the lens and clean the electrical contacts on the rear of the lens with a soft dry cloth.

Refit the lens and the battery and switch back on. Hopefully all will be well again.

Minolta digital camera,s

Simple answer...Take your best working lens to a camera store,and ask to test a sony a100 digital camera. ALL Minolta Maxuum auto focus lenses work with the a100. This includes Konica/minolta type also. If you don't have an auto focus lens, it still might work-but you would loose some features, by swaping camera bodies. In the least it would cost you nothing to find out what camera they would work on, and save you enough money to partly pay for the new camera body you want anyway. Shoot a few stills with your lens on the different bodies-after all your not waisting film-until you find one that is good for you. The camera shop might even have an adapter ring for your lens to the camera body of your choice.

On & off

I have a very similar problem possibly the same one, what the problem is with mine is the actual ON-OFF-Favorites ring you use to turn the camera on and off with is loose and so if I turn the switch too far ON it actually turns off and anytime I brush or move the outer ring (which is hard not to do when the shutter button is in the middle of it) the camera turns off and on again. I sent mine to a KODAK authorized repair center and there estimate was an outrageous $144 to and I quote "replace switch board / take board". I hope you have better luck (or are still under warranty) than I did.
Hope I could be of some assistance,
