Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera won't open at all

My Casio will not open at all. the lens does not open and it won't extend either. It makes the noise I programmed it to make when I turn it on.. but that's it! My Mother has the same exact camera.. we tried switching batteries to see if that was the problem. But it is not. My toddler may have done something with it.. but I'm not sure what! Any potential answers out there?

"My toddler may have done something with it.. but I'm not sure what!" Does the camera power down after it tries to open the lens? If the camera was dropped with the lens extended, then chances are that the lens is bent which would prevent the lens from opening. Was something spilled on it? This might be your problem too. Try sliding in a small piece of paper around the lens and see if you can free it up and get it to come out. If it does, wipe down the outside of the lens with a damp cloth (but not the optical glass!) and use a dry cloth to remove any moisture before retracting the lens. Hope this helps! Good luck!

Casio EX-Z700 was dropped in sand. When camera is turned on lens makes a grating sound and the moniter screen is cloudy. It originally said lens error, but no longer says anything.

Hello, I'm Mark Faith from the states. I purchased the CASIO EX-Z700 series.
However, I accidentally dropped the camera when the camera was on and the lens was extended.
It makes a grating sound, and the monitor screen said "Lens error".

Now, the camera is turned off with its lens extended.
When I see the lens from the top, the lens position is more concentrated to the right, and the gaps between each lens is bigger on the left hand side of the lens.

I sincerely hope this would help you to analyze the lens situation.
I'll be patiently waiting for a list of solutions.

Casio EXILIM camera lens will not extend fully!!!

Try plugging the PC interface cord into the external connector. No need to hook it up to your computer, just plug it in and out a few times. Then try to power up the camera.
Good luck.

Casio EXILIM camera lens will not extend fully!!!

It's the focus lens gears. The often times get knocked out of alignment by an impact, or debris gets in there. This can be fixed, but Casio won't help. my username. ;)

Beeps 3 times

Is it an actual beep, or is it a beeping noise coming from the lens? Does the lens extend? I ask this because this is the noise the lens focus gears make when they are knocked out of alignment, or debris gets in them and jams them.
