Question about Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera
The camera turns on fine and the lens comes out but then makes lots of mechanical chuntering and gets jammed. The only way to retract the lens is to press the playback button. Everything else works ok - just doesn't take photos.
I just had this same problem. The lens came out all the way, but then make a crazy beeping and clunking sound. The LCD would not come on. I took off the casing, and the clunking sound was coming from the mechanism that has gears in it, and seems to be what makes the lens come out. I tried blowing canned air into it, and banged it around, but nothing worked. Then I pulled a little too hard on the lens and accidently pulled the whole lens off. Oops. Looks like a new camera for me. So my solution is: don't pull on the lens.
