    Unfortunately, I also have the same problem.

    Camera had been working fine for many days in Australia (after purchase from New York, USA). Then suddenly it started doing the open, beep twice, close prblem you describe.

    Anyone know how to reinstall the firmware? Or reset everything in some way?

    My camera is doing the same thing but it was suddenly I was taking photos fine one day and then today it just kept beeping and retracting the lens every time I turn it on. I have no idea why it's suddenly started doing this. It's fine when I plug it into my PC and when I look at pictures I've taken.

    Same thing is happening with me!  but mine is an ex-Z50.  It turns on, but won't shoot photos.  I m playing with it now trying to fix it, but it just won't shoot.  I just took out the battery and mem card, and it took about 5 photos.  I thought it was fixed.  I turned it off then on again, and it won't shoot photos again.  frustrating!

    I had the same problem after i read this i did not want to buy anything so i actually pulled on the lens thingy and it seemed to fix itself. so idk maybe you could try that.

  • jasminehyatt Nov 02, 2008

    the EXACT same thing happens with my camera...i don't really know what happened, but i'm pretty sure the problems have something to do with me accidentally dropping the camera in the sand. i'm SO glad i'm not the only one with this problem!

  • graphicsguy6 Nov 05, 2008

    Same problem. Lens comes out, beeps twice, retracts. Too bad - I really liked this camera.

  • Anonymous Dec 16, 2008

    Another s880 that just shuts down for no reason. The camera allows you to see the pictures stored but as soon as you turn on to take a picture it shuts down. With this many same troubles you would think Casio would pay attention to customers.

  • ojc1 Jan 10, 2009

    Another user's post adequately describes the problem. When camera is turned on it beeps twice, the lens extends and then retracts and the screen lights up briefly and returns to dark. About three times I have been able to get it to show existing photos but it will not go into picture-taking mode.

  • TT78 Jan 13, 2009

    I have the same problem as well. My camera

  • Heathertu Jan 19, 2009

    I haven't even had this camera for a year and it's doing the same thing. All of a sudden it started doing that, going on, but then retracting and turning off. I can see the pics that i have taken. you pay $300 for a camera, I want this fixed!

I have had this issue on several Casio camera the lens comes out fine and then goes right back in some times it just gives you two beeps and nothing else. the problem is with the lens its focus motor is out of ajustment. According to Casio this is not covered under any type of warrenty coverage and that ****.but hehe sometimes you can take it back to places like bustbuy and if you have your receipt they will sometime swap it out. But lets say they don't. well you sometime can get a replacement lens for it off ebay for pretty cheap. This is only if you are sure that you can fix the camera. If you choose to have it fixed make sure you shop around there is a huge diffrence between shop to shop.

Casio Exilim won't turn on

My guess, only support people know what the two beeps mean.
Try to remove the battery and after a few seconds insert it again.
Then again switch on. If the error returns, contact the dealer or Casio support. Still it could be you think the battery is charged, but the capacity is not enough to power up your camera.

Casio Exilim EX-S880 won't turn on, lens clicks

Do you have a mem card installed? If so what size? Make sure it is the right size for your camera. Also make sure the battery is fully charged. The lens clicking twice makes me believe that there was some kind of damage done to the lens like maybe accident powering on when it wasn't supposed to like in a pocket or something. You may have to send it in. Expecially if it says "lens error".
