Question about Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera
When I push my on/off button on, the lens shutter opens up and expands
but only for a second before it retracts. Also during that second or
two, the image as seen through the LCD is very blurry.
Looking a pictures taken before this problem and stored on the SD card are ok.
Can anyone give me a clue what is wrong.
Hi, this is a problem alot of people get having with this type of camera.
It could be one of a couple of things first check the battery is fully charges as a faulty battery would cause this problem, do you have a switch on the camera that lets you see the pictures stored on it without opening the lense, not all makes and models do this some have switch you can slide and some is just push button the push button you cant do this.
So if yours is the push button one then the only thing to try if the battery isnt the problem is looking and removing anything thats caught in the side of lense.
Ok try removing battery and any mem cards if you have any in it then bang the camera firmly into the palm of your hand sort of shocking the camera to dislodge any thing thats stuck in the side of lense do this few times then replace battery and switch on usually this solves the problem.
If not then when you switch camera on grab the lense and help it come out taking it past where it gets stuck be gentle try this few times and see if camera comes on.
Once the lense is passed certain point the camera should come on.
So give that a try it does sound like something is jamming the lense so try pulling it out gently only do it when its supposed to be coming out when it trys to go back in let go again try this few times.
Failing this then the problem could be that either the camera has been put down with the lense open and forced the lense motor damaging it or the other thing that people tend to do is switch camera on acidently whilst its in pocket or case so that it switches on but the lense is blocked from coming out this causing damage to lense motor.
If the problem is in fact the lense motor then their is no way of getting this repaired they just dont repair these and you cant get the parts like lense motor no camera shop will even look at them as you cant get parts and also price of repair would cost more than replacing the camera.
Also check to see if your lense turns round as its coming in or out if it does this then try turning the lense as its coming out.
Let me know how you get on ok and ill try assist you further

If you can’t get the manufacturer to fix it or send you the parts you may want to try and fix it yourself. I found a guy in South Carolina who sells good used parts and will give you some suggestions on how to do it yourself. I bought a LCD from him for $39.00, fixed it myself and it works great. I think his email is firstname.lastname@example.org

I have the same problem with my camera. Was fine taking pictures and then 10 min later it didn't want to work. Lens extends opens and then closes. The interesting thing is that it makes 2 buzz noises and then closes. So it has something to do with that noise as if it is trying to extend out further even thought it looks fully extended.
