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).

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 outer glass lens has come apart from the body of the lens. The part has a thread but I don't know how to re-assemble it. Any ideas?


Is this a completely flat piece of glass? If so, it is only what is called a filter (probably a UV filter) and is not vital to the functioning of the lens. It's an accessory that is mostly used to protect the actual front element of the lens. Filters normally have a screw thread that simply screws into the front of a lens.

If the part that has come loose is curved on either surface, then it is part of the lens and you may need to have a comera shop help you put it back.

Hi, When i turn on my camera attached with my 18-135mm lens, it says F-- . I've tried change with another lens, then it became normal and it seems like no problem at all. What is the problem actually...


Hi Norhid. There may be no problem at all. If your camera body is in shutter priority and your lense's aperture ring is turned to any setting besides its widest, the body and lense will not synch. See if you can find an orange aperture setting on your lense's ring, and a white dot on the lense alongside the aperture ring. Mount your 18-135 and line up the orange aperture number with the white dot and see if everything works. If that doesn't help, try switching the exposure modes you're shooting in. Hope this helps.

F EEwhen i put the camera on don`t shut


This means one of two things:-

1. You have not set the lens to it's smallest aperture before fitting it to the camera body; or...

2. The EE servo coupling post on the outer edge of the lens mounting flange on the body has broken off. This is a switch which senses when the lens is set to it's minimum aperture. Looking at the camera body, with the lens removed, it's at about the eight o' clock position on the outer edge of the body lens mounting flange.

1. is easily fixed:just fit the lens correctly. 2. Really needs a professional repair, but as you can get a used F60 (N60 in USA) for free these days (FreeCycle/Freegle) it's not worth doing: just fasten it permanently in the "activated" position. Do a bit of googling and you'll see what I mean.

I hope this has solved your problem, if so please rate my answer.

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.

Camera dropped an the lens broke off the camera


I have the same problem - the plastic bayonet lugs are the weak point on the lens assembly, but better that then breaking the camera body mating ring. I've dissasembled the rear of the lens and will try to reglue the two split lugs with cyanoacrylate glue. Be very careful not to mix up the 3 different types of screws, avoid damage to the multi-contact plate ribbon cable, and to not to loose the backfocus shims! Cheers.
