Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z57 Digital Camera
I am so upset with CAsio... in the official page they ask to format the internal memory. It hasnt solved anything here.
While I was formatting for the 100th time, I decided to pick off the battery, so then I had an (internal) card error. The thing is. EVEN with the internal card error, the cam would turn on and ask for me to set up language and time. The card error was then solved when I pressed menu and asked to again format the card.
But I still have the problem and it is now proved that formatting the internal memory has NOTHING to do with this problem
I am still waiting for a solution. It is the 3rd Casio that I have, and it will be the last one. I am really upset.

Even casio seem confused by this question! It seems that the camera will loose it's settings if the battery is dead or the camera is not connected via USB. Even if the battery is charged it could loose the settings within 24hrs. You can get the manual below: http://world.casio.com/qv/download/en/manual/

OK, here's the fix. This camera has internal flash memory that is used to store settings and can be used for limited picture storage. Its use for saving setting is essential, however. If this gets corrupted then the camera won't save settings. Whoever said to format the internal memory had the right idea.
After much experimentation here's how. Remove your SD memory from the camera and turn it on. This will force it to run on the internal memory only. Run through the time/date/location setup again. It will complain about the memory card. Ignore this and press menu. Under Setup, select format. Choose format memory card and do it. This will format the internal memory. Once it is done, turn the camera off and back on. You'll notice that the problem is gone and it has remembered your last setup.
BTW, my camera is a EX-Z75. Not sure there is a Z57 model.
