Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z77 Digital Camera
The camara was dropped, now when it is turned on it makes a ticking noise. the lens extense half way out, then clicks again trying to retract back in. i disassembled the camara and lens assembly to find a broken gear. do i need more parts than just the gear assembly or can that be replaced by itself?
Hi kevin3738 and a_nester
ok for kevin3738,
im thinking that since you said your lens doesn't extend all the way out that maybe you might have cracked a gear in the lens housing, the mechanism to extend that is located when you open the camera and take off the front face plate, on the right side of the lens housing **silver part** you see a black plastic casing attached to a motor on top and screws in it, that is what moves the lens housing in and out, in that are a few gears, i think 4 of them lat move the housing, 3 small ones and one big one that reaches down to the bottom of the housing, they are interchangable but im not sure as to where you could find a gear to replace the broken or cracked one,
And for a_nester
im gonna take a guess at what exactly the problem is on your camera, and it might be the lens autofocus
in that case you can look here
