  • gl4ever156 Mar 30, 2008

    i had the exact same problem.....updated your firmware to the newest version (it was released March 2008) and you may be able to use the camera again. sometime the problem is bad enough that you have to send it off. but its worth going to the CASIO offical site and downloading the newest firmware for free and seeing if that works before going through all the trouble of sending it off.

  • tanner_greg Dec 30, 2008

    I had th same problem - have followed the instructions to download and update the latest driver to the camera and, as someone else has commented on an earlier post, I still get the error message for a second or so when I open the lens cover, but it disappears and I can take pictures.



    However I am not too happy if the stabilisation isn't working. One of the reasons we have FIVE Exilim cameras in the house is the image stabilisation. Is there anything else I can do to fix this properly? I have emailed Casio Tech Support to see what they say, but probably won't get an answer for days....



    TIA

    Thank you so much for the download idea...i called tech support at a Casio and they said it would not work to download a new version and they refused to connect me to someone who could help walk me through the download process...called repairs and they said they had no knowledge of a download that would fix this problem and that I would have to send it to them at my expense to have an estimate for repairs they would send me a letter telling me what needed to be done at the max. it would cost 119.00...i tried the download reinstal version 103 and it worked just as the others have said..still have the error message for a second or two but then I am able to take pictures as usual. I had already purchased two new cameras which I will now need to decide weather or not to keep me newer one...i really like the Casio but was very disappointed and inconvenienced at this malfunction and no support found from Casio to meet my satisfaction. Thank you for your posts!!!

I sent my camera back to casio with original reciept and they fixed it and returned it within 14 days. I was really shocked at the turn around time. Just call casio's 800 number and get the information you need.

Download the latest firmware V1.03 will fix the problem. The irritating error message still appears but the camera works fine otherwise.

Try it, don't throw the camera oout yet!

Camera stabiliser not available when power on.cannot use

Posted on May 02, 2008

Wow,
the new version really works. I wished i would have done it earlier.
Im wondering if the error is a problem, should i still send it back? I think ill just use it more.

Posted on Apr 28, 2008

Downloading the newest firmware on your ex-v7 can simply solve this problem. I have this problem too. By downloading the latest software, it goes back to normal. But the "stabilzer not available" thing still pops out after a sec. it'll just back to its normal mode... Hope this helps

Posted on Apr 23, 2008

Hey guys the upload really works! It just sucks that i haven't tried it earlier! I am ot of country for a while and needed it fixed so i found a localcasio repair shop and they told me that it only takes a second to fix it so I got really happy and then asked for a price and it's 180 euros - no thank you! So i went online and read tons of opinions and tried the upload with my fingers crossed! The message about the stabilizer still appears but just for a sec and then i'm able to take pics! Thanks a lot for the help! And Good Luck!

Posted on Apr 17, 2008

Casio suggested that I send it in for repairs. I refuse to do so. I bought the thing on the 27th, its going back to the store. Never buy another one.

Posted on Jan 09, 2008

I recommend downloading and installing the firmware update to version 1.02 from the www.casio.com website. this seems to have solved the problem....I still get the message but I can use the camera now. I wonder if I should get the lense realigned or just let it ride....

Posted on Nov 10, 2007

I know that this means you dropped it and the lens are misaligned now. It should still be under warranty, call the number on the warranty card...but dont tell them you dropped it. It takes 5 weeks to get it back. I had mine back from repair a week and it fell out of my pocket when I sat down and now Im in the same boat as you. I was wondering if anyone has open one of these up and re aligned thier own lens... i dont want to wait 5 weeks again. email me at frankjzamarripa@gmail.com if you find a solution. thanks

Could you confirm that this is a G lens (without an aperture ring)? If so, try cleaning the electrical contacts on the back of the lens and in the lens mount on the camera.

''Lens Error'' with Nikon Coolpix S10


Turn the Coolpix S10 on using the button to the left of the 'OK' rocker which has a picture of a camera and an arrow beside it. You may need to hold this button in for several seconds before it responds.
The camera should turn on in the mode used to view stored photos, and this may bypass the lens error message. Pressing the button again can get the camera to switch to picture taking mode. This worked on my S10 after I dropped it. Hope it works for you! regards Thomas Mann

"lens error" error message


Got to the menu in the camera, click on the lens sixe you wish to use. Then take some pictures, try changing the sizes ans see the diffetrent results.

Also it might be that you did not open the lens cover completely before you take the picture.

Take care

Resetting EX-V7 error message


Hey Go here
http://world.casio.com/qv/download/en/ex_v7_firmup/
Download the latest firmware. Install it. Like the rest of the people. It seems like we all dropped it. And updating the firmware seems to help a bit.
Meaning you can now use tha Camera and take pictures, but when you turn it on, you will get the same error message for like a second. Then the Camera is back to normal.
If its under warranty take it back. And dont tell them it was dropped.
Cheers !

You need to send your camera in. This is something that can't be fixed at home. Call repairs at 800-706-2534 option 2 and they can tell you where to send it.

Message: Camera stabilizer is not available


I had the same problem (Camera stabilizer is not available) 3 days into my Thailand vacation. The Casio authorized repair centre says the ONLY solution is to return the camera for replacement of the lens assembly. In my case, they did not have the part and instead, gave me a USED replacement camera. Battery door is loose. File names are inconsistent (started at 395 on the USED camera and then it went to somewhere in the 200's and then started filling in starting at 1. Was also producing numerous 'globes' (lens reflections?) on many shots.

Although my original camera was only 6 days old when it died suddenly and inexplicably, Casio continues to refuse to give me a new camera, leaving me with the used, malfunctioning junk. Numerous emails have not helped. Casio is NOT a good choice to buy a camera from. Period. They should have stuck to calculators.
