Will not come on

Dear Friend,
When I press the button to turn on the camera, normally
the lens cover opens and the lens zooms out. All of a sudden when I press the button to turn on it will not do anything.

    Dear Friend,

    When I switch the camera on it does nothing, I thought it was the battery so I bought a new one and still it does not work. Occassionally it comes on, but then it generally freezes and it won't even turn itself off and also I am unable to take or view any pictures.

    I wonder if you can advise, as Christmas is coming and I don't have a camera to take any pictures with.


    Kind Regards

    When the camera is turned on, the operation lamp lights and beeps but nothing happens; the lens does not work and the camera does not work either. The battery is well charged and even thought of getting a new battery just in case that might help but no. What should I do?

My camera stopped working suddenly. When I turn


Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.

Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).

Thank you!

Well there are two different case in your post. If you are in case A (dear friend post) , then I can try to find a fix, the problem may be shutter locked, sensor, electronics etc.
If you are in case B (fee 126.95 from Casio) then there is nothing to do, probably board inside must be replaced and it will cost nearly the price of a new camera.
A way out of this may be buying a faulty camera of same kind (maybe on ebay) and getting the board replaced by yourself or a local repair shop, I am sure it will be cheaper than what Casio estimated.

I switch the camera on. I get 3 beeps and it shuts down.

The problem is of zoom lens motor which operates lens cover along with zoom, and it needs replacement with new part, and camera will start working fine again.
Thanks for using fixya

Hi my camera is telling me to...

Is the camera turned on? Removed the Cap on the Zoom lens? Try turning it off and on, while the cap cover on the lens is removed, then press the heart button and take some photos. What specifically is the warning?

Olympus Stylus 730 shuts off after few seconds. Battery is fully charged, tried a resetting: no change.

To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover opens and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

I have the same problem. It looks like a defective battery as I tried a friends battery and the camera worked.

Mine is less than a year old so not happy.

Frozen lens and shutter

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

Lens won't open and retract.

It sound like a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!
