    When I turn on my camera, the screen is totally dark. No icons, nothing. I am not able to view previously taken pictures in the view mode. It acts as if the flash is warming up (blinking red lights turns green), but nothing on the display.

You camera shutter is stuck at close position, you will need to open
the thing up to repair.


As for the totally dark screen, either your LCD or driver board is bad. You will need to open and replace the broken part.

I dropped my casio ex-s10, but it was in a hard case.ever since then,when i turn it on the screen is black and so i cannot see the pictures on the screen.what can i do?


The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to Casio service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost.

Thank you

It sounds like you broke the backlight on the display. I would contact Casio to find a repair center.

Casio Exilim EX-Z3 Displays turns off when taking a picture

I have the exact same problem. Casio wants the camera mailed in and charges $79 for a new LCD screen (if that is the problem). Any other suggestions?
