Casio EX-Z55 wont turn on after lens error

Please help! Our camera wont turn on. We have had lens error messages for a while and then it died altogether. The lens has actually remained half open and when you press the on/off button a green light flashes as if its trying to turn itself on but theres nothing else (not even any motor noises as we'd usually get) We took it to a camera repair centre today and they said it would be approx £120 to repair!!!!!

Re: Casio EX-Z55 wont turn on after lens error

What i did for this was, remove the memory card, charge the battery fully, once fully charged, hold the on button and push very lightly down on the lens. had to do it twice to get it right for me. once it was fully in i shut it off and pulled the battery out for a few minutes.
do not push the lens in to hard, it will crack or get out of alignment.

hope this helped it fixed it for me

A lens error is something that can only be fixed my sending in to the repairs department. There is nothing that can be done at home to fix that.

Maximale Kapazität von SD-Speicherkarten bei Verwendung mit CASIO Digitalkameras Error 0e01: It has to do with the maximum save capacity of the used SD-Cards (max. 1GB for following models). You can format the card (somehow, maybe with docking station), then it would only have 1GB capacity...

Casio exilim ex-z55 lens gear problem

You may be lucky like me .My wife turned on the Casio Lens down and got same problem as you.
I dismantled the front face of camera to gain access to the lens system and found that one of the plastic sprockets had its teeth slightly twisted!I managed to straightened these carefully with a knife and now Casio good as new....zoom also working perfectly.
This is an easy fix and from what I hear people are giving up on an out of warranty camera,when in fact they maybe abke to easily fix it themselves.
I dont mind helping anyone email is

Error messages seen at power-on if not caused by the memory card are generally related to the lens assembly either being jammed or malfunctioning. We do not see many Casio cameras here in my shop but I can say that statement applies to these kind of cameras in general. Hold the camera close to your ear when you power it on. Do you hear a series of different sounds, or do you hear chattering or repeating sounds? Perhaps no sounds at all? David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Seen a few of these, with no apparent fix. regarding the 0e01 error, I heard it really got fixed by a firware update. A firmware update is not available through the casio site though, not for your model. Try taking out the batteries for 24 hours, the SD card aswell, and when you put back the bats(use good NimHs), don't put back the card. See what happens. Also try connecting to electricity through the adapter. What about warranty? have you contacted casio? Do they have anything usefull to say or are they only qualified to answer the phone and offer you a 200 $ repair/replacement? Good luck
