Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z50 Digital Camera

Pop spilled on camera

My daughter spilled some pop (yes pop, not soda) on her camera and now she occasionally gets an error when turning the camera on. The screen goes black and in white letters it says lens error. It seems pretty likely that she still has some residue inside the camera since she has cleaned it from the outside as much as possible. We need to go inside and would prefer not to send it back to Casio for repair. We're nervous about opening the case on our own. Does anyone know if there are any components that are loose inside that will move about when we open it ?? Otherwise, any advice for fixing this problem on our own without making things worse? Thanks -sar

Re: Pop spilled on camera

I think you can consider this is a water damaged item since water has been immersed into the mainboard which cause sensor failure. Camera internal components were very fragile and I suggest you not open it if you really don't know what is inside unless you have opened it once. I have fixed cameras for my friend before but mostly with part failure not water damaged and I believe your is just partial damaged only. Below is some help links to direct you how to fix your own camera: and other easy way is go to google search URL window or Yahoo and type Casio Digital Camera Service Guides, then they will provide you a lot of links where you can get information to fix your camera. I hope this help.

Spilled soda on my camera sticky lens

Buy lens cleaner, to wipe off what you can, but in truth the lens should be dis-mantled to clean it properly not to mention the rest of the camera.

Is there anything to do for when soda pop gets in camera and it doesn't work

Its depend on the quantity of the soda or drink spilled on the camera you are using. Use the blower to dry the liquid and do not use it at least 10 to 12 hrs. Allow more time to drying.

I am getting this message on my EOS 450d, (camera's built in flash pop up was obstructed turn the power switch to off and on again). I have done this several times the flash wont pop up - can you please...

Sometimes the pop-up flash on the EOS range of cameras can get stuck. The EOS family have a very tiny micro switch under one blade of the flash hot-shoe.

Get a toothpick and manually pop the switch. It should clear your error, too.

Good Luck.

Soda spill

If you turned it on while it was still wet inside, a short circuit may have occured. I don't advise opening the camera unless you are trained to do so.

Occasionally I get 'ERROR 5' appear on the display on my EOS 450D - it is suggested that the pop-up flash is being impeded, but I know that it isn't. What is happening?

This is a common canon mechanical error.

Most of there SLRS do this the release inside the pop up flash hangs either due to weak spring or release catch itself. If it hangs for even a split second you get error code.

Try This.
  1. Clean Flash Release & Apply wd-40 with a q-tip to moving parts. DO NOT SPRAY INTO CAMERA. Use oil lightly.
  2. Or Assist flash when it tries to p up by lifting on flash gently. Maybe one day canon will fix this problem.
PS this happens to even Brand new Canons.

Using exturnel flash

Already answered by me in another question by you...

The "error 99" is a general error on Canon cameras meaning "something's gone wrong and I don't know what to do about it". If you get them all the time, the camera is effectively dead and must go back to Canon for a service repair (circa £175 if I remember correctly).

If the error 99 only happens when you try to pop up the flash, but otherwise the camera can take good pictures, then yes, an external flash unit could well solve your problem. With an external flash on the hot-shoe, the internal flash is completely bypassed and the camera will never try to pop it up.

I recommend taking your camera to a shop such as Jessops and ask to try out a flash gun to be sure.

Built-in flash auto pop-up problem

Does the 'pop up' pop up? If it does and still says obstructed- closes it and pop it again If it still persists Canon customer support will advise the next move. If a repair price seems high you could perhaps get a separate flash if the camera accepts them.

Camera problem

Make sure that the battery is fully charged. If the problem still occurs, take the caemra with your proof of purchase to any authorised Olympus repair shop and they will repair it for you. Provided you haven't taken it to the beach and got it sandy or wet or spilled soda pop on it.
