Re: exilim camera turns on and then truns right off. ...

Ok folks i fixed mine.

The lens comes out for a quick second, beeps a few times then goes back inside. Well I grabbed hold of it a few times each time it came out and held it. I then bashed the camera off the table a couple of times. Honestly a good dunt off something hard works a treat. woohoo got my cam back!

Ok everyone.......if your light is blinking while it's charging that means you have a battery error and need to call techincal support and they can possibly replace the battery for you if it is a certain model and within their time frame of replacement.

Usually beeping and then shutting back off means that the lens has sustained some kind of damage and it is just a matter of time before "lens error" shows up on your screen. The only way I know to fix that is to send it into repairs or an authorized service center if you are out of warranty.

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.

I have a casio exilim ex-z280 and when i turn the camera on, the lens keeps closing, and stays shut. So all you can see is the shut lens on the screen. It was working last night, Now its not. Thanks...

Make sure that battery cover closed properly & the memory card is place rightly while camera is ON,
May be battery is not holding charge or possibly loose contact between camera & the battery terminal, Make sure that your battery is fully charged & place battery in battery terminal in right direction (+,-), Sometimes battery terminal gets dirty, wipe it with clean dry cloth, There could be possible that your charger is faulty and not allow battery to charge. I would recommend you to try replacing new battery before sending your device to service center.

Battery charged, however camera will not stay on

This is a firmware problem that is very common in newer electronical devices especially cameras. You may get lucky enough to find an upgrade program online, but most chances are that you will have to send the camera in to the manufacture and they will repair it for $50

Camera will not turn on...charged battery but the charge light blinks instead of staying solid

If battries still blinking , chances are that the battries are buggred...try new battries after fully charging...this is cheaper option to try before trying to open the camera..

Hey ohsnapsimone,
You can definitely take it to a Best Buy™ store and the Geek Squad® precinct can send it out for service, but I would make sure your battery is charged first. Another cause of the camera just shutting down is if the camera gets to hot it will just shut down. I hope this helps!
