Casio Exilim zoom Lens Error

When I switch it on the lens comes out crunching and grinding. Never manages to focus, and I can't get it to zoom any further. Is this repairable by me, or shall I take it to a shop, or just get another?

Re: Casio Exilim zoom Lens Error

Get the next one is probably the best bet. The motor mechanism is either damaged or dirt has got in. Parts can be a problem and the hour rate just to look is a good chunk of the replacement price. Check out Casio website first - support but I think you will go for the new one once you see a repair price

I own a casio exilim ex-z850. it has been showing a lens error, every time i try to take switch it on. the memory card is fine, i view the pictures. but the lens wont open up or anything. please reply...

This error indicate that focusing ring got stuck or jammed due sand, dust, may be due to external shock caused by dropping the device.
  • You can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
  • You can try to turn camera ON at the table (facing it to the ceiling), don't put camera down face to the floor when opening.
  • If motor is running but lens won't retract sometimes lens would slip off with the gear or break off a tooth in the gear when it gets dropped. Try to gently move the lens barrel around with the finger and see if it is moving, but if tooth or gear is broken lens will move onces or twice then it will stuck again.
Else your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring at Service Center.

Good luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

My Casio Exilim EX-Z80 wont turn on

The lens barrels are jamming someplace. wen the camera moves the lens out immediately pop out the battery so that it stays and then turn the zoom from the outer most barrel in the direction it comes out side. Do not force it too much. If that works fine other wise take it to the service center

Casio EXILIM camera lens will not extend fully!!!

Try plugging the PC interface cord into the external connector. No need to hook it up to your computer, just plug it in and out a few times. Then try to power up the camera.
Good luck.

Casio EXILIM camera lens will not extend fully!!!

It's the focus lens gears. The often times get knocked out of alignment by an impact, or debris gets in there. This can be fixed, but Casio won't help. my username. ;)

Lens does not come out anymore- crunching sound!

Sounds like there might be some kind of lens damage. If you call Casio repair center they may be able to give you a ballpark figure on what it would cost to send it in and have it fixed. The way you described it sounds like what they call a "lens error". Give them a call at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1.
