Like the others, every time i turn my camera on i get the error message that the camera stabilizer is not available. i haven't used my camera in several months, nor attempted to upload any pics. i saw that the solution said to update the firewire, how do i go about doing that? any other ideas?

Re: cameral stabilizer not available
The new firmware (I think your mention of firewire was an error) is available here: http://world.casio.com/qv/download/en/ex_v7_firmup/ just click on agree at the bottom of the screen and you will be taken to a page where you are to enter the serial number of the camera. Once you download the firmware you are to copy it to the root or either the camera's built in memory or a memory care either by using the camera's USB dock or a card reader. More instructions are probably included with the download, but it should simply install once you copy the file and restart the camera.
If the firmware update does not help your camera then there is most likely something wrong with the image stabilizing mechanism. This could be as simple as a stuck gear or misaligned guide so taking the camera appart might reveal the problem. If it's related to the electronics or mechanical parts then you may be better off purchasing a brand new camera if yours is not under warranty.

check menu options is reasonable and first solutions. maybe is stabilizer turned off and you got the message. read the camera manual carefully, there is described how to turn on and turn off stabilizer. in manual, troubleshooting chapter has many solutions for camera and try to find one for stabilizer. if all this can't help you go to service, something is wrong with camera software.
What should I do when the error message "Camera Stabilizer is not available." appears?
Turn the camera off and then back on again. If the same message appears after you turn power back on, contact a CASIO service center or your original retailer.
Hey Go here http://world.casio.com/qv/download/en/ex_v7_firmup/
Download the latest firmware. Install it. Like the rest of the people. It seems like we all dropped it. And updating the firmware seems to help a bit.
Meaning you can now use tha Camera and take pictures, but when you turn it on, you will get the same error message for like a second. Then the Camera is back to normal.
If its under warranty take it back. And dont tell them it was dropped.
I had the same problem (Camera stabilizer is not available) 3 days into
my Thailand vacation. The Casio authorized repair centre says the ONLY
solution is to return the camera for replacement of the lens assembly.
In my case, they did not have the part and instead, gave me a USED
replacement camera. Battery door is loose. File names are inconsistent
(started at 395 on the USED camera and then it went to somewhere in the
200's and then started filling in starting at 1. Was also producing
numerous 'globes' (lens reflections?) on many shots.
Although my original camera was only 6 days old when it died suddenly
and inexplicably, Casio continues to refuse to give me a new camera,
leaving me with the used, malfunctioning junk. Numerous emails have not
helped. Casio is NOT a good choice to buy a camera from. Period. They
should have stuck to calculators.
I sent my camera back to casio with original reciept and they fixed it and returned it within 14 days. I was really shocked at the turn around time. Just call casio's 800 number and get the information you need.
