Question about Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera

Casio Exilim EX-S770

When I turn on the camera (press the power button,) the lense opens, the camera grunts three times, then the lense closes, and the power shuts off. I can still look at pictures on the camera, but I cant take any. I tried to charge the battery and still nothing. The camera says that the battery is fully charged.

    I have the same problem and the green light on the top of the camera flashes all the time. The lens comes out then retracts. My camera is less than 4 months old but it was a present and the friend who gave it to me is not contactable right now.

    Same exact problem. Is this covered underwarranty.

  • devilution May 26, 2008

    I have the same exact problem. The problem occurred after 2 days of using the camera quite often ( vacation )

    I've tried forcing the lens to stay open, but that doesn't seem to work either. I've taken out the battery, Mem card, and even tried turning it on when plugged into the dock on a/c power with no luck

    When I turn the camera on, the lens extends, the camera beeps three or four times, then the lens goes back in and the camera turns off.

    I have the exact same problem, I've tried the hard surface banging and it worked but went straight to the viewing mode and as soon as i pressed any button it switched off again. Now I'm back to the start and i'm too scared about keeping on hitting it against something hard incase i break it even more. What do i do, it's not even my camera AARGH

    Good grief!! I have the ex-z1000 with the exact same problem. I thought it was broken anyway so what the heck, I beat it against the concrete outside twice - works as good as new now!!

    Thanks, I was about to throw it out

    When I turn on my camera, the lense makes 3 distinctive sounds and is very blurry. I then try to adjust the camera and it powers off.

Hey I just tried the banging solution to my EX S770 and it really worked. I did not use the compressed air blow part but I did bang the camera on the bottom on the granite counter top and it working fine. Thanks!

Posted on Nov 25, 2008


Step 1: Take the camera firmly in hand and bang the bottom part against a hard surface. A desk works really well!

Step 2. Take off the right side molding and blow compressed air (A LOT) in the bottom of the camera.

If it doesn't work repeat step 1 and 2 again.

I had this problem and now it all works out!

Holly Sh&% it really works… I took the battery off, blew in it, took side panel off and blew in it, I banged against my desk 3X.. and …IT WORKS!

Posted on Mar 27, 2009

Solution #2 really does work. I couldnt believe it. I just firmly banged the bottom of the camera on the counter 2 or 3 times, hit the power button, and it worked. AMAZING GOOD WORK
I also took off the side panel and sprayed air into it, but I think this solution may work without the air.

First, check if you haven't set the camera for MACRO shoots, if so, only objects very near the lenses are focused. If is not the case you may have drop it and the lens got out of alignment.

Can you see pictures already saved on the camera? If not, the card may be corrupted. Try to format your card if you DO NOT have important pictures on it.

Camera beeps and won't turn on

Try playing with the lense I had the same problem. I would turn it on and the screen was frozen, the three beeps then it turned off. I played with the lense since it was sticking out and I tried turning it on again and it worked. :]
