Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

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

    I guess what I failed to mention is that the screen error appears after the lens extends part way then gets stuck. I personally have not witnessed what happens (the battery was dead when my daughter filled me in). My interpretation from that was that something was physically impeding it's motion (something sticky I figured). Perhaps it is a sensor failure as you suggest. Time will tell. I will update when I know more. Thanks...

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.

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.

since you or someone spilled soda pop on your shifter you could lift the boot cover and unscrew the gain access to this area. however this could be a real pain in the !!! what i would try first is to get a solution of hot soapy water and pour it slowwly or repeatedly down the shifter hole to wash out the soda pop. this all goes right out onto the ground.

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.

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.
