Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z77 Digital Camera

Open Question

The camera was dropped in water for a few seconds. I managed to take the battery and memory card out after I retrieved it from the water. The camera was then dried and I was able to take a few pictures after the mishap. It's been a few weeks now and the camera does not work. I tried to charge the battery, thinking it was a bad battery, but the battery charger would continuously blink a red flash for hours! Can this camera be saved?

SOURCE: Camera just wont turn on...help please

I opened up mine today and found out that all you needed to do was put the plastic gear back into place and it's A ok. Open up the camera and when you're facing the front, check the little plastic compartment on the top right to see if the gears are in place. I fixed it and everything is A ok now. :)

SOURCE: battery will not hold a charge.

Casio says:

Red blinking light = defective battery

No flashing light = possible defective charger.

What you can do is send all your stuff into casio and they will test everything for you and see what they could replace for you.

SOURCE: Battery Dont Charge

jpierre's solution (in another thread) was right on the money. Touch the positive (+)end of the 9v battery to the positive (+) end of the camera battery.Leave them touching for a few seconds (10 seconds should be more thansufficient). Seems these lithium-ion batteries are subject to a'digital memory.' Subjecting it to a volt surge almost three timeshigher seems to clear it.

In short, it works like a charm.

SOURCE: The battery (NP-20) for my

Okay I just fixed this on my camera the same thing. First make sure your battery is charged. You will need to get a paper clip. Take the battery out and unfold the clip so that you can use it to pull up the contacts between the battery positive and negative and the camera. The conductors need to touch the positive and negative on the battery. If you battery is dead you will need to do this as it will not charge your battery on the cradle becaue there was no connection. over time I think that the battery loses its connection and the spring is not strong enough to push up the battery far enough. I ordered a battery charger and new battery and it still didnt work so I started to tinker with it. I held the battery with my finger pushing it up and holding it, and simaltaneuously powered on the camera. Thats when I figured it wasnt the battery but it wa the connection with the battery and the camera.

hope that helps

Samsung le19a656a has sound but no picture ? has picture sometimes for a minute or so when turned on and off


Just switching off and on is not enough. You could try one step further. After switching off, remove the battery and memory card for a little while just a few seconds should be enough.
To make sure the memory card is still working, put it in an external memory card reader and look on the computer you still have pictures on it. If the card gives an error in the computer, try recover software, to retrieve your pictures. If the card looks ok, replace the memory card and the battery and switch on again.
But also make sure the battery is charged.
If after this still the same error occurs you should visit a repair centre, or start saving for a new camera.

Camera won't read memory card anymore but card works on other devices. It used to read before but suddenly doesn't I don't know why.. Camera is not broken and never been dropped,,


The only way to be sure the card is not damaged and the camera is, try to format the card (AFTER SAVING ALL PICTURES ON THE CARD FIRST) in the camera. Cameras can be very picky what format, or what device did the format.
It should be a second nature, to format a memory card every time it is used in an otter device and after you place it back in the camera.

Then a camera does not to be dropped to be broken. There are lots of other reasons it can become damaged. Like pressing in a memory card in, the wrong way around. Leaving in bad batteries, for a long time. Exposing it to extreme heat. (in summer in a car behind the windscreen) or extreme cold. Exposure to damp or water. and so on and so on.
I hope the formatting will bring relief.

Camera won't connect to computer


I take it this is not about the Canon XS film camera but some digital camera.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

A person accidently deleted four years of photos from my camera. Is there any way to retrieve them?


Yes there is. Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

The camera was on/lens out when my son dropped the camera. Since then when I try to turn it on it opens but immediately closes. Any ideas?


This is a long shot, remove battery and the memory card, press power and hold for 30 seconds to drain off any residual charge. Now put the battery and memory card back in and press power, if it works the camera has managed to reset itself, if this fails probably cheaper to replace it.

I deleted some photos by accident and wish to retrieve them


Hi,
If the pictures were in the cameras internal memory there isn't much you can do unless the camera has an un-delete feature.
However if the pictures were on a memory card, firstly don't use the card.
There are many programs that can help you recover faulty formatted or corrupt memory cards. Do a search on google and try a few as some are better than others and some work better in certain situations than others.
searches to try
memory card recovery
memory card repair
Corrupted Memory Card

I wish you the very best of luck..
If I can be of further help drop me a line

Memory card error


The card error may be caused by several problems:
1. some minor electrical problem - turn the camera off, remove battery, wait several minutes, put back battery and turn camera on, see if it works. Proceed to next step to clean card contacts just in case.

2. Card not contacting with camera slot very well - remove card, put it on table with gold contacts facing up, use a cotton tipped stick with some ethyl alcohol (not alcohol drinks!) or isopropyl alcohol (many cleaning solutions like magnetic head cleaners) to thoroughly clean each contact. Avoid spilling and leaving drops on the card. Dry the card well before inserting it again. Never use water or other cleaning solutions or you'll ruin your card.
3. Card became defective: try card on another camera and/or card reader (many laptops have a SD card reader built in). If not working, discard card and sorry for your loss. If card works somehow, download everything useful and try to format it to see if it's working OK. Try to fill it up with some files and copy them back too some temp folder just to see if it's writeable and readable.

!!! In case the card seems to work, but your pictures are not there (card is empty or contains garbage) you can try to use TestDisk (http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk) - it's the best picture undelete program and it's free. Of course you should try to recover your data BEFORE testing the card with formatting, writing etc.

!!! Always format your card in the camera after tinkering with it on a computer! Camera format is not the same as format from the PC.

I hope you retrieve your data.
