Question about Casio Exilim Card EX-S100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Locked lens The lens is out and won't retract. This started out happening occasionally, and I found that if I removed the battery and re-inserted it, then the lens would close. Now it has come out and won't close at all. Even when I place it on the charger, it has made a little whirring sound but will not retract. Can anyone help?

You have to replace whole lens block,the zoom gears are probably causes your problem but as I know they can't be replaced separately

Turns off right after startup chime lens does not retract


This can happen when you use a battery that is almost without charge. Please remove the battery and charge it, before placing it back. Then be careful not to touch the lens, till the camera has a chance to retract it.
After you place the battery the lens should retract.
If the battery is really charged. You should not think it is charged, because you had it on the charger till the light indicated battery full.
There is also a chance you stopped the lens while it was coming out. A sensor detected this. To avoid damage to the lens construction, the camera switched off automatically. Also remove the battery and after a few seconds replace the battery and switch on the camera. Careful you don't touch the lens again.

Tip

Lens Error


Try removing and replacing batteries to reset the camera. Ensure that batteries are fully charged.

If that does not clear the problem, then the lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. This happens because there is dirt inside the lens (sand dust), or one part in the lens assembly is bad or went out of place.
Because of this he lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.

Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
If if does not extend tapping gently the back of the camera, and if it does not retract helping lens back in while turning camera respectively on and off.

More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Lens error. lens is currently retracted. will not open. nikon s8100 bought xmas 2010.


Had issue with lens stuck and not retracting on nikon s8100. first removed battery. then manually (gently) rotated lens counterclockwise until lens seated in fully retracted position. inserted battery, turned camera on and camera operational again. I suspect that root cause of lens jamming was turning off camera while simultaneously moving zoom lever

Lens goes in and out, stays out when off and says


I'm sorry that the lens of the camera is not retracting. Please make sure that the battery is fully charged and there are no dust particles near the lens which stops retracting. Check if you are able to access the Menu. If yes, then, please Initialize the camera under Main settings 1 Menu. If you are not able to access the menu, you may have to power reset the camera by removing the battery and press n hold the power button for 1 minute continuously. After that leave the button and insert the battery and check if it helps. If the issue still persists, your camera will require service.

Dimage Z3 lens does not retract


Check your batteries. Are they working? Try taking them out and replacing them. If you left the camera on when you put it away and the batteries drained, you won't be able to retract the lense until fresh batteries are inserted and the camera is powered up again.

Try removing your memory card. I had the same problem and this worked. You might need a new card. Good luck.

Error 2 message


I have the same camera, but not the error message. My lens occasionally will get "stuck" out. I have found that removing the battery for a few minutes then re-installing it will "reset" the camera and the lens will retract when the power button is pressed. This "fix" does not always work.
A call to Vivitar only results in the suggestion that you send it in for repair.
