Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z77 Digital Camera
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??
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 ^-^
