    Casio Exilim Z 700 Digital camera.
    The lens projects when it is switched on, then nothing happens.

    There's nothing on the screen and the off button doesn't work.

    I thought the battery might have gone flat but there is no change after charging.

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated as I go on holiday in 10 days.

If your lens comes out and retracs during power on or off then the spring that closes the lens is either broken or off trac. If you are out of warranty and able to open the case then it should be an easy fix. If not then you would have to get it repaired.

Sticky shutter inside the lens


Not sure that you really mean shutter, or the automatic lens cover. See the description below for a stuck shutter. If that's not what you meant, then see this instead. A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Shutter appears to be stuck closed.


Theirs oil on the shutter blades causing it to stay closed, Thats why you can't see though the lens or the viewfinder also, This comes from the grease from the zoom assy, It's a major job to fix it, Has to be fixed by a repair shop
