Casio Ex-z55 Lens cover not closing and lens does not operate

After 3 years of using my EX-Z55 without any problems at all, I have now found that the lens cover (consisting of two plastic "Ying Yang" shaped pieces) does not close fully. The upper part closes ok, but the bottom only about 1/2 of what it should. The retractable lens has not closed completely either. When I try to power on my camera it makes the noise that it normally would when it turns on, but neither the lens extends/retracts nor can I view my recently taken photos on the screen. Is it possible to remove the lens covers from the front of the camera (without accessing the lens from the back/in between all the electronics)? Alternatively what is the best approach?

Buy the next camera- at 3 years old no economic repair will be feasible- but you could play with it some I guess

Casio EX-Z55. When a memory card is in camera, the screen reads 'card error' and the camera is unusable.

The above says to try another card. If that doesn't work try to send the camera in to for evaluation.

I wish you luck in repairing this camera.

Casio exilim ex-z55 lens gear problem

You may be lucky like me .My wife turned on the Casio Lens down and got same problem as you.
I dismantled the front face of camera to gain access to the lens system and found that one of the plastic sprockets had its teeth slightly twisted!I managed to straightened these carefully with a knife and now Casio good as new....zoom also working perfectly.
This is an easy fix and from what I hear people are giving up on an out of warranty camera,when in fact they maybe abke to easily fix it themselves.
I dont mind helping anyone email is
