Question about Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera
I can turn my camera on fine but when I plug in the cable from the USB port, the computer cannot see it and also the lens will not "pop out" like it normally does when I turn the camera on. This causes me to not be able to upload my pics to my computer. Can you offer any advice for a fix?
Are you saying that you turn your camera on and the lens emerges, and then you plug in a live (5volts DC) USB cable, and the lens retracts? If this is the case, then that sounds fairly normal. Your camera has turned itself off in response to you hot plugging the cable. You only need to turn your camera back on. The lens probably doesn't emerge because the camera is in download mode, not shooting mode. In this case there is nothing wrong with your camera, and therefore nothing to fix. If you have tried all this, and your computer still cannot see the camera, try plugging the camera in to other USB ports on your computer. You should have between 4 and 8 to try. Also make sure the plugs and ports are all clean on bothe the computer and the camera. Another thing you can do Lizzie is to get a USB card reader (SD or multi or whatever card your camera uses) for $2 Reject Shop to $10 most camera shops. You put your camera card into the card reader and then plug in the card reader. MOST IMPORTANT! Make sure your camera is off when removing the card, and use the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE icon when removing your card from your computer.
