Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z57 Digital Camera
I took my camera to the beach and evidently got sand in it. The power still works and the lens cover opens slightly, but it won't open all the way and the lens won't extend at all. I was wondering if there is any way to clean it by taking it apart and looking for something blocking the gears.
No need to take apart just power up and gently pull the lens out and vaccuum the sand out, camera now works perfectly

Pull the lence as it comes out works....this method dislodges fine sand.... found out this after having removed screws etc!

I have a camera and I dropped it in the sand. The zoom works and everything, but when I turn the camera on and off you can hear the sand inside the zoom. I am really worried because I am not preparhed to have it repaired as it is out of guarantee. I was wondering if there is a way to fix it.

Me too :( I didn't even get it out, it was in a sock in my bag and it still managed to get some sand stuck inside - i'm really annoyed as this isn't covered by warranty - nothing's working! How do I take it apart?
