I too have this same problem. The lens is stuck open, and it's crooked too. I did take it apart and I could not get to or see the internal lens assembly. Taking it apart was very tricky so beware, I did get it back together and managed to get all the screws back in. I then took it to a camera repair shop and their quote was $150. Forget it. I decided to get another one but with more bells and whistles for only $100.00 and 10 free photo lessons. Mine was over 2 years old. Great deal! But I'm still hopeful the lens will magically start working again. That thing seems to be really stuck!

My friend and I both have had this same problem with this camera, send it in and casio will replace your lens assembly for free if it is within the 1 year warranty. After the warranty, they will charge you a lot. If within warranty, you will get the camera back fixed within 14 days.

*Note, part of the problem is that the default setting is that when you hit the Record button in your pocket, the lens will try to open.. When it jams, this happens. You can turn that menu option off too.

How do i fix a lens error?


It's most likely that your camera has either had a knock on the lens or been dropped, if the sound is mechanical (like a whizz). If it's more clicky in nature, there might be a grain of sand or dirt stuck in it. If you have an air blower, try that on the lens. If it is mechanical, your lens will need to be replaced, either by casio or a qualified dealer. This is usually an equivalent cost to buying the camera new, unless it is covered under warranty.

Casio Exslim EX-Z33: Lens Error Message; Lens stuck


The camera might not of had been dropped or abused at that moment, but it sounds like one of your ribbons is not full connected to its port due to a previous unnoticeable drop or mishandling. In other words, if you are savvy enough to open the camera, remove the ribbons (2 of them, found on the front side of the camera coming from the lens) and re-insert them into their ports. I have only needed to do this once on this particular camera, but at least 30 times on the Exilim line of Casio cameras. Hope this helps.

Casio Exilim EX-Z60 won't turn on


This happened to me too, fiddle with the lens as its obviously stuck. Don't be too rough but try to figure out if it is slightly bent.

You will only be able to this if the lens is sticking out a little, enough to get a grip.

Good luck
