    I tried to load the cd onto my laptop, with windows vista and would not work at all

  • cedaridge Jul 31, 2008

    Dropped the camera. Have used it for over a year and been totally thrilled

    with the camera. Now it is saying (when turned on), Camera Stabilizer is not available.

    Nothing works, as demonstrated by all the reviews I have read. I would

    like to know the cost of fixing it at the CASIO fix-it place or with you ??

    How much will it cost and what has to be changed.. to make it work again.

Ok, here is an option. goto casio's site and download the new bin. follow the instructions...more times than not the camera will work , but the error message will still appear...if U are using movie mode this will not matter because it uses E.I.S. instead. as for taking stills you can use the auto or image blurr to activate the E.I.S. (Electronic Image Stabilizer)..

The problem is with one of the U.S.M. ultrasonic shaft motors, there are 2 of them one in the vertical plane and the other in horizontal plane..almost...more precisely angle'd axis. The "H" U.S.M. is the one that is bad or might work again..(i have had this happen) there is NO fix for it, unless U are skill'd in hi-temp ceramics. So just a replacement of the imager block and support components must be done and have to be replaced as one.

Can't offer a solution - but here's the reply from Casio-Europe after sending my Exilim EX-V7 (bought end November 2007) to the service center:
the whole lens-unit has to replaced. as there are clear signs of heavy usage and inappropriate handling (???) there's no gurantee repair > costs 99,- EUR
especially the "heavy signs of usage" and "inappropriate handling" kinda fret me...the camera has always been stwoed in a camera bag and never fell to the floor or anything similar...

PhotoMAX software CD?

# Try inserting a different CD to make sure your CD-ROM drive is working. If the CD-ROM drive cannot read any CD, contact your computer manufacturer -- it's possible that your CD-ROM drive is not working properly. # Make sure the PhotoMAX CD is clean, with no fingerprints, dirt, or smudges. If necessary, you can clean the CD with a lint-free cloth and warm water. Dry with a hairdryer on the cool setting. Make sure the CD-ROM is completely dry before attempting to load it again.
