A stuck shutter is common failure mode for digital cameras. Thesymptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD imagesensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuckclosed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especiallywhen taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). Not sure what causes thisissue, but some say it's heat, others say it's dust.

But anyways, to confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any modeother than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blindyourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take apicture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as theshutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely havea stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and asimple fix that may help:

How to disassemble lens on a casio exilim ex-z75


Jim, I really wouldn't recommend this. It requires extreme patience and meticulous parts tracking. Note that junctions stated: "It's really hard to take apart,", and he ain't kidding.
Really recommend that you return to the remedies that you had been trying. Sometimes it requires many repeated tries to free the gunk from the shutter. I've found that for the smaller pocket cameras that the most effective solution seems to be extending the lens and tapping around the lens barrel with a pen/pencil. Then alternately opening the battery door with the camera turned on (no need to play with shutter modes). Then just alternate with tapping, battery door, tapping, battery door, and keep doing this until the shutter opens/closes. Once this happens, set the camera to continuous shutter mode and snap off about 100 pictures to final lubricate the shutter.Good Luck,t00nz aka CR

Hi! We currently have a problem with our camera (casio EX-S770). every picture i take outdoors are white, while indoors, the pictures horizontally striped, what should we do? and is there a CASIO company...


One of two likely problems. First possible problem is that you're not in auto mode, but one of the camera's manual modes (such as for night shots). First verify that you are indeed in automatic mode. Second possible problem may be a stuck shutter. A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter.

All outside pictures come out very white. Inside seems to be okay. Have tried 'reset' but still no good.

My son pulled out one of the shutters that opens and closes over the lens. The shutters no longer open all the way. The camera is brand new. How can I fix the rest of the shutters? Should I pull them...


You can pull off the other one if you want. To put it back in your basically going to have to take apart the camera. The "Shutters" on the outside is nothing more but to protect the lens will its in the camera. The actual shutter is inside the lens that open and closes very quickly when you take a picture.

Think of it this way, the shutter in the lens opens up to let in light that shows the image to the sensor behind the lens. Then it closes to "finish" capturing the light".

The "shutters" or "doors" on the outside do not move once you take a picture. They only close once the lens retract. (When the camera is turned off or idles)

Hope this has been helpful.

That is what Casio calls a "lens error". It needs to be sent into repairs.

Shutter having trouble opening and closing.


Hey SleepyFairy,
What it sounds like is that something sticky has gotten into the lens cover mechanism, and the only way to fix that is to have it repaired. If this camera is less that a year old it is most likely still covered under manufacturers warranty, and you should have it looked at by an authorized service technician to get it fixed.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
