Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z120 Digital Camera
Hi - I recently purchased a 1gb sandisk sd card for my casio ex-7120. I immediately began experiencing problems with starting my camera. When I press the on button the lens opens up but nothing appears on the lcd screen. After about 30 seconds the camera shuts itself down. If I then again attempt to turn the camera on it starts no problem. I can then take pictures no problem which save to the sd card. This is proving to be a nuisance as by the time I have managed to start the camera up I have often missed the photo opportunity. I have discovered a quick remedy although not favourable by which I remove the sd card and immediately reload it after the first start up fail. This then cuts out the 30 second delay waiting for the camera to shut itself down. I'd really appreciate some thoughts. Thanks Darren (UK)
OK, just got it back after the third try with Casio and they said it's fine--but it isn't. Same problem, no repair. They did not try testing the problem as described by both of us above; instead they just tested a bunch of different SD cards, one after the other, without waiting--which is when the problem occurs. They suggested using a smaller capacity SD Card, but you can see by the above that the 1GB card didn't work either. I'm going to give them another try, and hope that they just replace the camera after spending way too much time on this. I just want to shoot pictures. JT (USA--a Yank but not a Wank)

I almost thought I wrote that myself, except that it's signed Darren (UK). John (US)--that's me--had the exact same problem. I bought my z120 as a factory refurbished, didn't hesitate to send it into Casio Repair, and it came back twice, not fixed though they tried repairing the circuit board on the first try, and replacing the circuit board and firmware on the second try. I hear the standard policy is for them to replace the camera on the third try, which I just sent it back in for (and the person on the phone said the third round replacement is the standard). Note that even though my camera was factory refurbished, and bought on Amazon from someplace in California, Casio did not hesitate to honor the warranty and I did not have to go through the seller to get this done. I've been sending it to Casio Repair directly. Anyway, glad to know I'm not completely bonkers--even though I'm a Yank. Cheers! John (US)
