Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z40 Digital Camera
The lense on my camera no longer comes out when I switch the camera on and the message 'lense error' appears on screen. Consequently, I can't take pictures!!
Any ideas? All advice welcome.
SOURCE: system error (0e01)
According to the user manual your camera is corrupted and needs to be taken to a Casio service center. I looked on a photography forum and there were alot of people with this camera that had the same error message. Sorry for the bad news!

Hi there and thanks for coming to FixYa.
90 percent of the time, it's dirt, sand or grit that has gotten into the lens mechanism preventing it from opening properly. Try this:
Take an air compressor if you have one, or maybe you can use a friends, anyway, put the nozzle up to the camera and run it around the space between the lens and the camera to clean out any dirt or yuk that may have gotten in there. Best of luck. Leave me a comment if you have any other questions.

Try blow compressed air around the lens, this might help if something stuck in the lens causing it not to retract. you can also try other suggestions from the link below. it's not for the same camera but it might help.

Looks like the servo for the lens assembly is not functioning.Try pushing down the lens gently until is completly recessed and power the camera on after that.

it naturally happens to all digital cameras , if they are dropped down to the floor.you shouldnt be able to take any pictures.if you try to switch the camera on the lens should be going in and out at least two times and then it would switch off .the only thing you can do is take it to the nearest service center and change the lens array.it would cost about 60$. the true fact is i had this same problem.,thanks for using fixya!.please dont forget to rate my solution.
