CARD ERROR - Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z600 Digital Camera

My digital camera was fine when it I was taking photos, and when my friend used it to take several photos in a roll then suddenly it shows "Card Error" message on my screen. and I cannot open any pictures any more. I've switched the memory card to my friend's camera, and all of the pictures can be viewed. I've backed up all of the files for in the memory card, however I still cannot make it work. everytime I turn on the digital camera it shows me "Card Error" message. But If i remove the memory card from the camera it works fine but just has limited storage, I was wondering why this happens? I've updated the camera's firmware to the newest version as well but problem still presists

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

When I switched on the camera, the screen showed me "The card is locked" I assume it's talking about the memory card...but why???? My camera is a Casio Exilim EX-Z600

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Outdoor snap is full white

It really sounds like an exposure setting. Check the manual exposure, it will use that setting when not in auto mode.
