Question about Cameras

5 Answers

EX-Z40 camera is not responding to commands except ON, PLAY, ZOOM and RECORD. There is a strange but permanent pattern on monitor screen when camera is switched off which brightens when camera is switched on. MENU, DISPLAY etc have no effect. Zoom and flash function as does charger.

    I tried removing batteries, pressing ON button etc but problem remains. The permanent screen pattern is as follows: below diagonal from top LH to bottom RH is almost entirely blank. About half of other area is solid black in shape of moth wing. Above that a series of slim vertical bands in colours white, purple, green, black,yellow, grey, yellow, black, blue and so on. Broad grey band at right

    Thanks for reply and for list of agents. However I live in the country where Irish Druids come from rather than USA. I suspect that with the competitive prices for improved models, it may not be worth repairing

Hello aodhoire,

Well, it does look like the IC controlling the LCD display, or the LCD display itself, or the connector ribbon has got some problems. This should not be very expensive to repair, but I do not recommend you doing it yourself, if you have no prior experience. This is not a simple replace-a-chip-and-voila solution, as the parts ar very tiny indeed, and to be attempted by an inexperienced person.

Please click HERE to find a list of authorizes service centers for Casio near to you.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.
If it hasn’t, please do not assign a rating just yet. Please post back as to what steps you took, results, etc, and I will try to assist you further as best I can. I am here at your service.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!
IrishDruid

    OH! Sorry, I thought you were in the US. Sorry to say, the closest Casio service center from here is in London. If your piece is under warranty, you can send it to them by post and they should return it within 2 weeks.

    However, like you said, you may be better off buying a new one. There are cameras starting from E54.95 at Argos. That would probably be the better option.

    By the way, if you are in Dublin, I believe Curry's in Blanchardstown Retail Park is having a Bank Holiday weekend discount sale. Check it out....and thanks for the rating!

Brightness of the monitor screen changes when a picture is taken, the final picture looks blurr. Is there any solution?


Are you pressing the shutter button half-way and giving the camera time to lock in the focus before pressing the rest of the way? If not, the good pictures were just luck.

The overall image is out of focus
If Pan focus is being used, the image may be out of focus; use Auto Focus Mode.
Pan focus uses a focus range of several feet, so the image might be blurry but will be captured faster. This could occur in the EX-Z30, EX-Z40, EX-Z50, EX-Z55 and EX-Z57.
If digital zoom was chosen and the image becomes unclear, only use optical zoom, and move closer.

Check the owners manual; hope this helps.
