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 Exilim EX-S880 won't turn on, lens clicks


Do you have a mem card installed? If so what size? Make sure it is the right size for your camera. Also make sure the battery is fully charged. The lens clicking twice makes me believe that there was some kind of damage done to the lens like maybe accident powering on when it wasn't supposed to like in a pocket or something. You may have to send it in. Expecially if it says "lens error".

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 ...my email is [email protected].

Camera lens cover is sticky


Try blowing lots of compressed air around the open lens shutter to clean the mechanism. Or use a hair dryer for a few seconds (don't want to heat up the camera). Also with the lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off. A grain of sand in the mechanism is usually the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it.

You can open it up, but only as a very last resort. The above procedures usually work if you try them enough. But for those particularly nasty stuck mechanisms, here's an example repair on a Canon Powershot A400 (do this at your own risk):

High humidity problem


Might as well send it in and see what they say. If nothing else they might offer you a trade up option to a newer model. They can be reached at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1.
