Question about Casio EXILIM EX-Z1000 Digital Camera
Everytime I turn on the camera, the lens comes out but after a second the lens retracts and the green light below the shutter button flashes. Can you help?
I had the same problem when i went to casio they told me it was the battery so ibought a battery when it did not fix it i got my other digital camera switched memory cards now it works fine so i guess i'll be buying a new card on the bright side the memory card worked fine in the other camera and now i have an extra battery which i got from sourcing map for $8.99 my only complaint was that it took almost a month to get here but was still $30 cheaper than wal-mart

I had exactly the same problem I seem to have solved it by holding down the shutter button and then pressing the on/off button. It powered up and the lens stayed out. It was not auto focusing, so I placed it into manual focus and ran it back and forth in manual focus mode. (The circular button on the back adjusts manual focus by pressing it to the right or left) I suspect it's part of the start up self test that checks to see if the auto focus system is working, if it fails it shuts off. I think I stumbled onto a override of sorts by the button combination. Running the manual focus seemed to help. I do have a small black area in the upper right of the screen that gets no light - a dark spot. I store the camera in my pocket, I wonder if some pocket fuzz got into the camera somehow...
