Camera Won't Turn On

I have a Casio Exilim Z600 and suddenly it just won't power on. I also have a docking station and it won't charge. I want to get it fixed but I am probably going to have to mail it off since there doesn't seem to be any repair shops near my home. I want to know if it's worth mailing off or if it could be the battery or an easy at home fix? Thanks for your help.

Re: Camera Won't Turn On

I have bought many "broken" Casio cameras that had this issue. 9 out of 10 were easily fixed.
The first thing you do is remove the battery and card. Let the camera sit empty overnight. Next morning, take the camera and puch down on the power button...the on and off button. Hold it for 15 seconds. Release it after that 15 seconds. This will reset the camera. Then try the battery and card again. Many times...that is all it takes.
If that doesn't do it...but a new battery (NP 20) they sell on more than $7 as rule with shipping. Buy a new charger as more than $8 usually..same place. Do not throw away your camera or take it in for repairs until you at least try this. It could be the cheapest fix possible.
If a new and charged battery still doesn't work, it may be the connection points...inside the camera...the little springs you see when you look into the battery slot. I have never had to adjust these as they were never the problem. What is sometimes the problem, id when the battery is pushed into place...the right way and not backwards (we have ALL done it!) there is a little latch that comes out from the side to hold the battery in...make sure it does in fact hold the battery in tight before shutting the battery cover. The battery cover does not have to be closed for the battery to work.
If all the above fails...sell me the camera and charger and battery...seriously!!

Re: Camera Won't Turn On


I think I have a solution....I had this problem for the last months...Usually after removing the battery 2 or 3 times it went away...

Last week the camera got wet (my Underwater case leaked!!) and the camera did not turn on anymore...but I know it was working because:
- It would work fine for slideshow mode in the cradle
- Although it had the flashing red charging problem also, even with a brand new battery it did not turn on
- When pressing the on/off button, the GREEN led on the camera would flash ONCE (turn on) and the TWICE (turn off)....but the LCD stays off and the lens stay inside
- I did get the camera to turn on SOMETIMES and the i figured out the pattern....I can turn the camera ON using the play button and THEN press the button to the right (shoot mode) and the LENS pop-out and the camera works.

- When you get the camera do work, go to the SETUP menu and configure the PLAY button to turn ON the camera...
- Even if the On/Off does not turn the camera ON, the play button WILL
- Then, in PLAY MODE, press the other button for SHOOT MODE and it will be OK
- My On/OFF button still works to turn OFF but not ON anymore.

Hope this can help someone!!! ;-)

Re: Camera Won't Turn On

We have the same problem three days ago with this camera. Probably the best is just to throw it away

Re: Camera Won't Turn On

Measure your battery with a voltmeter, if you have 3.7V or higher and you camera doesn't start up you most likely have mothbard issue. There are 3rd parth camera repair services that will replacet it if you are out of warranty.

More than likely, you've just got a bad camera. I've helped with several problems with P/S cameras where the screens are either noisey or records a static like image. 9 times out of 10, it's the processor. Unless the camera is new or still under extended warranty..,

Casio exilim lens retracts wen u press to take pic

The battery probably needs charging. The camera will automatically shut down if the battery is going flat.
With the Exilim you need to make sure that you don't overcharge the battery by leaving it permanently docked in it's little docking station - this can damage the battery. There is an LED on the docking station which shows the status of the battery. Red is charging, green is fully charged - take it off the docking station.

Camera won't charge


It's a problem with the battery. It already reached it's life cycle. I had the same problem with my 15 month old casio camera a year ago - flashing red light on docking station. I even tried borrowing a docking station/charger to see if something else is wrong with it.

The only solution for this is to have the battery replace.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Charging Camera

I would test the docking station first. Do you have a way of charging the camera without using the docking station?

Thought I'd ask because some can and some can't.

Docking station does not synchronise

Possible faulty connection between docking station and camera. Depending on age of the camera- send it back for replacement from the seller or contact Casio. Does this model have a removable memory card? If so invest in a card reader - very cheap and more reliable than docking stations.
