SOURCE: lens won't come out

Replace with new batteries. If that doesnt solve the problem then it may be time for new camera. Cheaper to replace than try to fix.

1. turn camera on 2. lens expands 3. lense immediately retracts 4. lens error


If you hear a noise from the lens when you try to take picture or During turn on/off time then it's a lens guide pin problem OR Somehow its jammed or damaged. It's happens when the camera pressed or drop down during turn on mode or long time not use.

For the solution you need to follow the steps.

1. Turn off the camera and remove the memory card and clean the external body of the camera and make sure in place of the lens there is no dust or damaged sign.

2. Now turn on the camera without memory card & make sure the battery are fully charged.

3. If the lens not moving then give a little shake or thrust by hand ( carefully very slow) and then wait for a moment. If no changes then turn on the camera and give a little twist an anti clock side and leave for few second. It is risky ( Do it slowly at your own risk)

4. If nothing change then reset the camera setting from the menu option.


After following all steps, if the camera does not start working then you need to visit service center for replacing the Lens or Repairing. If you have any more questions ask me I fell happy to answer your question. Thank you.

Camera operating slowly...card was emptied (not reformatted, mind you(!?)) + camera still slow....to shut it off is a SLOW process...sometimes wants to rfuse to shoot.


Some cards are available that work at faster speeds and I would definatly try reformating card from within the camera menu

I have had this issue on several Casio camera the lens comes out fine and then goes right back in some times it just gives you two beeps and nothing else. the problem is with the lens its focus motor is out of ajustment. According to Casio this is not covered under any type of warrenty coverage and that ****.but hehe sometimes you can take it back to places like bustbuy and if you have your receipt they will sometime swap it out. But lets say they don't. well you sometime can get a replacement lens for it off ebay for pretty cheap. This is only if you are sure that you can fix the camera. If you choose to have it fixed make sure you shop around there is a huge diffrence between shop to shop.

It dont turn on


I had the same problem. Try to turn it on, 3 beeps and then it would shut down. Screen would come on for that time. Also, the lens was stuck open. It wouldn't close.

I twisted the lens (gently) and it appeared stuck. A gentle screw motioned seemed to free it. I hit the power button and it come on, but this time no 3 beeps and shut down. I then turned it off and this time the lens retracted and closed.

So, it appears that if the lens gets stuck open, it has a shut down feature that doesn't allow the camera to go further into its operation modes. I believe this stuck open problem occured on our camera when the batteries went low.

Again, a second of gentle twisting seemed to unstick it and with fresh batteries in, it was able to operate and shut down properly.

As far as batteries, I use the rechargeable Ni-Cad 2500 mA. They last a while.

Blessings to you!

Power problem with 450


The LCD goes dark after the camera has been inactive for a time, to save battery. When that happens, you can easily restore the LCD display by half-pressing the shutter. If you want to, you can turn this off by selecting menu-setup-SleepTimeout and turn it off. (I don't recommend it, though, as the LCD always on will drain your battery).
