Question about Casio Exilim EX-S880 Digital Camera

1 Answer

EX-S880 Shutdown I have a problem with my camera where it will automatically shut down as soon as I push the shutter button. The on/off button will not turn the camera on, but it will turn it off. I can turn it on by pressing the play or record button. I can also record with it as well. I just cannot take snapshots--it powers down right away. Anyone else have this problem? I've only had the camera for about a week.

    yeah i have the same exact problem, full battery, but just like you said, the review pictures button will turn it on but the snapshot button turns it off. The power button turns it off as well but wont turn ut on. i can record video, but when i go to take a snapshot it powers off.....so yeah it would be a nice camera.

    my camera does a similar thing. when i turn it on to take a picture the lens comes out and then goes back in (it beeps until it shuts down) and shuts down. The only thing i can do is hit the play button. Ive reset the camera and same thing happens.

First off make sure that the battery when charging is a solid red light and NOT flashing. If it's flashing that means we have a problem with the battery.

Make sure you are only using a Toshiba, Panasonic or Sandisc memory card that is no larger than 1 GB unless you did a firmware upgrade to handle a larger card.

Take your memory card out. Turn the camera on and press menu, go over to setup, go down to format (this will format anything on the internal memory of camera) and press right arrow to highlight format and then press ok button. It will say busy please wait and then once that's done please press menu again, go to setup, go down to reset, press right arrow, highlight reset and press ok.

If the camera is still acting up after doing this please contact Casio repairs and they can fix it for an electrical issue.

How to release a stuck sutter on canon 400d


Wow, four days ago.

I would think that the camera has dropped the shutter by now.

There is a mode in the camera that holds the mirror up out of the way for sensor cleaning but this is defaulted as soon as the power is shut off and then turned back on again.

Or the camera was set in manual mode "Bulb" and is waiting for the next command from the photographer to "drop" the shutter "takes a second press of the shutter button.

The lens may be loose (unlocked) and giving a bad command to the camera.

The Canon 40D has a shutter capable of 60,000 actuation so if you are close to this I'd say the shutter has been shot out of it.

Also sometimes the shutter release button sticks and gives the feeling or appearance of a stuck shutter.

Shutter switch also known as a release button have been an issue sometimes where dirt and oil from a person hands get down into the button.

To release shut the camera off, take the battery out, remove and reinstall the lens, shift the taking mode to "P" program or full automatic green box.

Pictures turn very dark as soon as the shutter is pressed or picture turns completely white as soon as shutter is pressed


It sounds like you have some settings changed for the manual mode. Try using an automatic mode. You can also "Initialize" the settings on your camera to set all settings back to factory default.

My shutter is not working properly, how to fix it? It has attached down and as soon as camera is opened it takes photgraph automatically.


Apparently something is wedged in the shutter button, such as a piece of sand. With the camera turned off, hold it upside down while pressing the shutter button in all the way. Tap the body of the camera gently and see if this will dislodge the button. If this does not work, the camera will need to be disassembled by a camera technician.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Casio Exilim EXZ70 battery not charging


the battery you have may not be pushed into the camera far enough. Try putting a small piece of paper in there to push it in. If that doesn't work then the new battery would be the best option

if you try pushing the battery in further it might turn on, if that doesn't work just get a new battery, but make sure to take it out when you aren't using it or this will happen again.

I have a Casio Exilim EX-S880 and I would like to know how to use the over exposure feature. So it keeps the lens open for like 3 or 4 seconds.


Press the BS button for "Best Shot."  Then select the "Night Scene."  This will put the ISO at 80 and the shutter will stay open for about 4 seconds.  Use a tripod or balance the camera on a steady object.  In this situation, the timer function is great so you don't giggle the camera when you hit the button.
