1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable nimh 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If using rechargeables, and they're more than a year old, consider purchasing new rechargeable batteries as they may not be providing sufficient power to startup the camera. If new batteries didn't work, try pressing and holding the 'Function' or OK button while turning the camera on.
2.If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time
3.Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins back into their slots.
4.Insert the cameras audio/video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fix 3 as a means to provide extra power to help to this fix. Reinsert the cable only after tapping the camera.
The advice is ascertaining whether the camera is still in warrantee phase by contacting the manufacterer. An entire replacement plan is arrangeable that way rather than attempting repairs alternately. The manufacturer is able to provide technical expertise most of the time since they may be the only onces with tools to the device or even spare parts acquireable nowhere else on the market. Also, attempting to repair may cause extensive damages later beyond warrantee agreements or even technical expertise. Simply contact manufacturer, else a technical expert, else discard and purchase a new once if so much inconvenience if asumed of the whole process.
sir just read this i think the lens contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on
the end, just a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the
lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens' gold contacts are
pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of
any hand oil that might have gotten on them.
Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body.
This is a bit harder but it's doable: just hold camera so lens opening
points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and
dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the
erasings inside the camera.
I did this to each of my three lenses just to be sure. Lo and
behold, it worked. I've shot numerous pictures with each lens and have
not gotten a single error 99 message. I'm psyched, I feel like I have a
whole new camera now.
Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts inside the camera? This simple fix (use a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper) clears about 90% of the non-charging and quick shutoff problems with these cameras.
I took mine surfing, and it leaked salt water (just a couple of drops) into the battery compartment. I rinsed the whole camera with fresh water, and the camera came back to life -- but had similar display issues.
I had the camera serviced at Best Buy, where I had purchased a 4yr maintenance contract. In addition to fixing the electronics, they replaced the door on the battery compartment with one that has a metal hinge instead of the original plastic.If you don't have a warranty, then getting a used replacement is by far the cheapest route.
My advice: buy another one on eBay or Craigs. I just got a second one two weeks ago for $70.00 and it is working perfectly. This is an awesome camera, and worth the hassle to repair or replace.
I have HAD the exact same problem. Turns out a whole bunch of people too. But there is a solution. You can get a free new battery by calling the casio technical support. 1-800-435-7732. They are very friendly. They'll ask you a few questions, like where you live, you number and your camera serial number[ under your camera ] and all you have to do is explain to them your problem. I got my new battery and now my camera works as good as new.
I am sure you ave figured out what to do for this poblem but if not...I had this problem with a nikon I just purchased. The guy I bought it from said it was the battery charger, so I purchased a battery charger on ebay-"new nikon d1 battery charger" was the actual listing and it cost about $40.00. You can get the actuall charger that comes with it on ebay- but it cost alot more money. I recieved the product, tried it on my battery (which was suppose to be new) and it still would not charge. I took all my stuff (battery, new charger, old charger) to a local battery shop in town and they tested it all for me. Come to find out it was not the charger all along, it was the "new" battery- UGHH! The whole point to this story is this- if you have not aken your battery and charger to a battery shop yet- do that first. Then go from there. Like I said- you canget the charger on ebay- and the battery can be bought for about $36.00 too. I would not recommend buying both like I did! Good luck.
