Question about Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera screen dark

I dropped my Casio Exilim EX-S500, and now the screen is very dark (almost black) and impossibl to shoot with. It still takes pictures, and if I look very closely I can see that the screen is recording what the lens is pointed at, but it is too dark to be useful. What can I do? I love this camera, please help!

Re: camera screen dark

It sounds like you broke the backlight on the display. I would contact Casio to find a repair center.

I dropped my casio ex-s10, but it was in a hard case.ever since then,when i turn it on the screen is black and so i cannot see the pictures on the screen.what can i do?


The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to Casio service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost.

Thank you

Casio exilim EX-S500 overexpose

If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

It's need repair camera machine shutter.

Casio Exilim EX-S500 screen is black when turned on

you camera shutter is stuck at close position, you will need to open
the thing up to repair.


As for the totally dark screen, either your LCD or driver board is bad. You will need to open and replace the broken part.
