Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Case problem My camera is functioning properly (as far as I can tell - no notice of degradation of pictures). But, the case is not fitted tight at the top along where the power button is located. Any suggestions or will this have to go to a CASIO repair shop? Can any camera repair fix this? The camera is about 6 months old. The "gap" is where the shiney bar is that has the shutter release and power button and is widest at the power button end.

    I suspect they will claim user damage. Now I don't remember dropping it, but maybe someone dropped it and replaced it where I left it. Since I posted, DS has tried to fix. Now the LCD is showing damage as well (black spot and white area). Pics seem okay, but can't see all the settings. Suspect I will have to replace.

    Is it possible for end user to try and salvage with replacement LCD from "parts" camera on Ebay?

  • Kay Bens Jun 23, 2007

    I am pretty good at taking things apart and putting them together. Plan is to get another Exilim (60Z or 75Z if it takes the same battery) for compatibility. I would like to try adn salvage this one if possible -- but need help on getting past the first set of screws. I figure I would buy another for carrying in my bag, keep the first (if I fix it) for days at the beach, etc., and still look for my UltraZoom. Really cuts into what I can spend now on the Ultrazoom, but know I will always want a small camera I can carry anytime.

    Dismantling a camera can be an awesome business unless your are good at fine instrument work.
    My advice - get the new camera.
    Then fiddle with the existing one for parts etc you make get lucky and have two cameras or you may have knowledge and a pile of pieces - that you sell on E-bay ;-)

I have a necchi 4825 machine and the needle dthread is getting caught on the bobbin case as it goes around , why would this happen


One reason would be the holder that pushes against the bobbin is too tightly pushing against the bobbin. If it is much too tight it won't allow the thread to go past that point and get stuck. Another reason would be the bobbin case has a small cut on it. This must be smooth all the way around since the thread has to ride on it. The tension on the bobbin case should also be checked. If it is too tight it won't be able to extend the thread from the upper thread.

LCD woont turn on properly but the camera takes pictures while the screen remains black or in my case dark grey as its not totally black.


The water has ruined the LCD, water and electronics seldom mix, you are lucky it still will at least take pictures. If it is a high end model then send it back to the Factory repair center listed in the user manual (or phone number to find a repair center).

Cant take a picture


Either the batteries are bad (try newly charged batteries) or unfortunately, the camera is broken inside as far as the electronics are concerned.

Hope the latter is not the case.

The built-in flash on my Canon Powershot pro1 is not firing. The settings are correct and I can hear it cycle, it just won't flash. The pin on the hot shoe is functioning properly.


In that case, either the trigger circuit has partially failed or (far more likely) the xenon flash tube has blown.

Either way the camera needs to go to an authorised Canon service outlet for diagnosis and repair. Or you could just put the repair costs towards a far more useful external flash unit.

I hope that this has helped and that you kindly remember to rate my answer.

Where can I get various problems with my Leica C11 repaired or overhauled? Basically, it need a new rubberized back panel (chemical damage?) and the zoom is sluggish or stuck much of the time. I love this...


Hi David, thanks for the extra info.

In that case, the best place by far for your particular camera is Leica's own service centre in Germany.

The C11 sold in such tiny numbers for such a brief time that even Leica themselves may have trouble replacing the rubberised back panel with an original part, but if anyone does have the ability to locate the part it's them. The other problem is that the original part was clearly an unstable compound, so spares may have degraded as well or may soon start to degrade once fitted to your camera. Leica would normally have revised this part once they were aware, but as there are so few C11's in existence the retooling costs would be uneconomical to remanufacture the part.

Good luck, and I sincerely hope that I'm proved wrong!.

Singer 4562 t bobbin case won't fit properly, what am I doing wro


Make sure the bobbin case sets sort of on top and not under the ridge of the metal ring. There is a small latch on the upper left of the bobbin case. It is metal. rotate the latch to cover the bobbin case and this should stabilize the case without making it immobile

Buttons Messed Up and Screw Driver Size


I had exactly this problem and was able to fix it.

Two of the screws on the case are 'special', with a Y-shaped slot. The appropriate screwdriver seems to be known as a "tri-wing" screwdriver and is sold on ebay (and elsewhere) to open the Nintendo Wii and DS amongst other things. I bought one on ebay, and it worked fine although I think one size smaller would have been better. The screwdriver is labelled 360/Y x 50.

Opening the case was easy. If in doubt there are videos on youtube showing how to replace the LCD display that show how to do it. The only place it was tight was on the side just below the shutter button.

In my case the problem appeared to be that the ribbon cable connecting the button-membrane to the main circuit board had been creased (folded too tightly on itself) although I have heard that the same problem can occur if it isn't properly seated in its socket on the main board. The buttons worked perfectly with the case open, but failed whenever the ribbon cable was squished flat by closing up the case.

I folded the edge of a small piece of paper to make a small roll, and taped it in position just behind the crease in the ribbon cable so that it prevented the crease from flattening completely even under the pressure of screwing the camera together again.

Amazed and delighted to have my camera fully functional again for the price of a cheap screwdriver and 30 minutes fiddling.

Bobbin thread is catching on bobbin case


Could be a few things: 1) the tiny screws that adjust the thread tension may have loosened, or even tightened. 2) the bobbinnitself is not wound well. Place the bobbin in the case, and gentlpull on the thread, if it is too loose, it will cascade out quickly. if too tight, it will give resistance when you tug on it. he little screws on the case will either tighten or loosen the thread tension on the bobbin. Make sure that when you re-engage the case, the bobbin fits al the way into the machine. You should here a little "snap" when it fits all the way in. Also, check to see if the bobbin has too uch thread, making ithard to put all the way in the case.

I have a canon powershot sd10 ad the flash stopped working .ithink because the settin changed and i dont know how to restore it to facorty settings


You can restore it to factory settings by turning the camera on, and then holding the menu button down for five seconds, then following the on-screen prompts.

But if that doesn't help, next thing to check would be to make sure that all screws are present and tight along the external case of the camera. The case screws not only hold the camera case on, they also serve as a safety switch to turn the flash off when the case is opened (an exposed flash can give a severe shock). Try to find a replacement screw if you notice one missing.
