Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z600 Digital Camera
I can't get the camera to focus after trying everything listed in the book. Is it the battery?
SOURCE: fuzzy view and fuzzy pictures
I posted on Nov. 25th that I was having the same problem and would be contacting Casio to report the issue. Well did and want to update all of you on the results. I have great news on the blur/fuzzy issue for the EX-Z70 Casio. I called the Casio help line 800-706-2534 and explained the problems I was having with the camera - and mentiond that I believed this to be a manufacturer's defect as I found postings on the internet from other owners of the same camera which were bought around the same time I made my purchase. The rep was very helpful. She instructed me to write exactly what I told her in a letter and mail the camera to the address she provided. If I had my receipt I should include a copy of it - which I did. I mailed the camera requesting repair or replacement on Nov. 26, 2007 and received my camera back today Dec 6, 2007. That's only ten days - Repaired!! The repair report indicates the lens assembly and lens ring were replaced - and a new battery was incuded in the box. The packing slip indicates Defect Code #11. So this IS a camera defect and they were absolutely GREAT about repairing it ASAP and supplying me with a new battery too. Call Casio today and you will have your camera back by Christmas. Have a Merry Christmas - and take lots of pics! Debra - OnPeaHill!

The motor that controls the focus of the lense may be bad. Here is a link to the manual, and you many need to have the camera serviced at a local shop or by Vivatar.

Same here no matter what i try the pictures are a blur, i should of known not to buy a budget camera and think i have learned my lesson to spend close to 300 and get a cannon if i want quality pictures.
Worst part is since i bought this in january of this year it has been used about 4 times. Im hoping since i do alot of buisness with staples that they take this pos back so i can purchase a decent point and shoot, i want no part of waiting 2 months for sony to send me back the same camera with most likely the same problem.

check to see if a flower appears on the screen. If it does then the camera is set to macro and all your pictures except close up will be fuzzy. To switch macro off, move the ring on the front of the camera till the arrow is pointed straight down. I was having the same problem. Wasted a whole day of vacation pictures. That was what fixed my problem and I hope it fixes yours too,

If your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do
is to take it to the nearest official Canon repair shop and Canon should
fix it for free.
If your camera is out of warranty, or if Canon refuses to repair it for free (happens sometimes if for example they suspect the camera has not been treated properly) you can try some of the methods listed here to repair it yourself. These simple methods have helped a lot of people fix their cameras.
Before trying any of the suggestions, make sure your Canon has fresh batteries and it is in recording mode.
1) Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for a couple of minutes, then put them back in and turn the camera on.
2) Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function fine.
3) Another method is to tap the padded USB cover part on a hard surface, for example, a desk. It sounds so simple, but very often in works.
4) Try forcing the camera lens:
Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if the camera was dropped while the lens was extended.
Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on.
If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts again, do the following. Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on.
Another version of this fix would be to pull and twist on the largest ring of the lens while turning the camera on. Listen for a "click". If at first the focus seems to be off, turn the camera on and off and take lots of pictures, close ups and distance. Focus should slowly start improving.
5) If that doesn't work, there is an online guide for dismantling Canon cameras and fixing the E18 error. (NOTE: Try this only if your camera is no longer under warranty!) It is a great guide with pictures and it can be found here.
