Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 Digital Camera
This problem has happened three times in the past. Each time I have been able to retract it after sever tries. The camera will still take pictures and save them. The other problem with this is that the zoom no longer works as well. It will zoom in an 1/8th of the way and then the camera will stop and then say "LENS ERROR" or "RETRY POWER ON" After that the lens does not fully retract. Actually it barely retracts and is still sticking out quite a bit. Please let me know if this is: one fixable, two cost effective fix, and three who should I send it too.
Thank you for your time
With Battery out try to pull the lens towards outside
Do that gently do Don't rip it off !!!
Probably you will hear a click sound and If you do,
than put the battery back turn on and you should be fine
Every case is different so of the lens is jammed this will help
If the lens assembly is damaged than the only way is to sell the rest of the camera for parts.

I'm sure that every1 looking at this right now would love to
be able to do a quick fix for the dreaded E18 error. Well, I have fixed mine
several time in less time that it takes to take a picture. So here it is: This
error occurs when the lens is "stuck" or not extending "straight". The error can
happen in 3 ways: either when the lens wont "come out", or "comes out" and then
retracts, or does not retract at all. Mine did all of these at one stage or
1) If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, but then retracts again, do as follow:
Turn the camera off. Place the camera on it's back with the lens facing up and have a look at the "spacing" between the lens and the lens housing. You'll probably notice that the gap is NOT EVEN all the way around. To fix this, simply -VERY GENTLY- press down on the side where the gap is the biggest. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Try powering it back on.
2) If the lens is extended all the time and won't retract at all, do as follow:
Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently, in turn, take the two part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will once again hear a little "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on.
This has worked for me many times and it seems to happen when the camera has been carried around and possible had a little knock. I hope this is of help to someone else.
