Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z77 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My camera's lens is messed up.

My camera's lens wont work. I turn it on and it makes a buzzing noise. The screen will show up but its really blurry and wont focus in. It also wont let me take any pictures. My camera then shuts off with the lens still out and tells me i have a lens error. When i turn it on again it makes that same noise and then it shuts off with the lens in and says retry power on. I did go to the beach late week but it worked fine for me till my dad wanted to see the pictures i took. What happened to it and what do i do to fix this??

Hi bnm491

I in fact had the exact same problem with my camera, i posted on another issue post for this but, i'll put the solution here too

i found the source of the buzzing sound, its in fact the auto focus,

I WARN YOU NOW NOT TO DO THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING OR YOU JUST DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR CAMERA, YOU WILL BE TAKING OUT THE MAIN PART OF THE LENS AND COULD POSSIBLY BREAK IT!

to fix it yourself is going to be very hard, but if its any consolation the problem is in a small area inside the lens, see inside the housing for the lens is a small simple machine, better known as the auto focus, its movement is composed of 3 gears, a metal one attached to a small motor, one attached to the plastic that holds the focus glass in place, and one in between them, for me the problem is the gear in the middle and the one attached on the motor getting stuck, its not much force to move it but the tiny motor doesn't have enough power to push it along so it gets stuck, if your going to do this i suggest you have a small precision flat head screw driver, mine is a size 1/32", ok now i would take pics for a step by step walk through but my camera happens to be the thing im working on, lol,

ok what i did was dissasemble the lens *not the lens housing* and i took each of the little gears out and cleand them off, cause im not sure if its stock, but there is a grayish blue like "gunk" if you will call it that on the gears, and after that i assembled it back together and it worked like new again ^-^

Hope This Helps You ^-^

Blurry images (after a lens error)


There is a mechanical displacement in your camera. Definitely, it is not a software problem. Actually Digi Cams are very delicate, especially small ones.... So get it serviced from a authorised service station. They will fix the problem....

Olympus FE 230 Problem


I had the same problem. I hit it a long time ago when it did it for the first time. It has been a year since then and it is doing it again. I tried the book solution again and it will not work. I tried holding the lens, no luck, and I tried applying pressure when the lens went back in, again, no luck. Honestly, I don't think I will buy another Olympus fe series camera again. The solutions provided do help the first few times your camera does it, but you might want to start checking the market for a new camera.

Camera will not take clear photos


As you have noted the lens is the root cause of this noise problem. I really believe there is grit in the lens gear thats preventing it from zooming or re-tracing. As for the blurring this can happen due to shutter lag.. a notorious problem in some of the powershot models. Either ways your camera needs service by an authorized professional. I would not advise you to try and clean the lens gear yourself as it can very easily get messed up and it would significantly rise the cost of the repair.

Good luck

The lens is blurry and makes a buzzing noise when turned on


Well all the moving parts of the lent are plastic and most likely the reason Y you hear that sound it's because one of the hummmm the tiny wheels , that are connected to the mechanism of the focus on the lent is busted..... so replace that.

(some times if you take the camera to the beach the sand get to the mechanism ans stock the wells. In that case cleaning of the lent will suffice)

Now parts are not that easy to find some times companys only sale the complete lent and it will cost you, in that case you will need to decide if "REPAIR" or "BUY NEW" camera will be better

Ihave the same problem. Its annoying. When you turn it on does it make a buzzing noise? Cause that's what mine does. Except I never dropped my camera. It just goes to the Polaroid screen and then turns off. I'm wishing I wouldve bought a different camera :( Sorry I can't help..
