Hello, I'm Mark Faith from the states. I purchased the CASIO EX-Z700 series.
However, I accidentally dropped the camera when the camera was on and the lens was extended.
It makes a grating sound, and the monitor screen said "Lens error".

Now, the camera is turned off with its lens extended.
When I see the lens from the top, the lens position is more concentrated to the right, and the gaps between each lens is bigger on the left hand side of the lens.

I sincerely hope this would help you to analyze the lens situation.
I'll be patiently waiting for a list of solutions.
Thanks.

Mark

How do i fix a lens error?


It's most likely that your camera has either had a knock on the lens or been dropped, if the sound is mechanical (like a whizz). If it's more clicky in nature, there might be a grain of sand or dirt stuck in it. If you have an air blower, try that on the lens. If it is mechanical, your lens will need to be replaced, either by casio or a qualified dealer. This is usually an equivalent cost to buying the camera new, unless it is covered under warranty.

Normally changing the battery solves this.Make sure you replace it with a good quality new battery and make sure it goes in the right way around as when you get in a flap it often ends up in the wrong way!

Dropped my exlilim ex-s880 in the sand and can view pictures only


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Casio exilim EX-Z700 lense won't open to take pictures


Hi there and thanks for coming to FixYa.
90 percent of the time, it's dirt, sand or grit that has gotten into the lens mechanism preventing it from opening properly. Try this:
Take an air compressor if you have one, or maybe you can use a friends, anyway, put the nozzle up to the camera and run it around the space between the lens and the camera to clean out any dirt or yuk that may have gotten in there. Best of luck. Leave me a comment if you have any other questions.

Lens erro, camerra wont turn on, completely dead


Casio will fix it but there would be a fee. A lens error means that there has been some kind of damage done to the lens gears. Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done by the consumer, it is something that has to be sent in. Call repairs at 800-706-2534 option 2 and tell them you have a lens error and have talked to tech support already. Otherwise they will make you call tech support. :) They will tell you where to send it.

Lens Problem


Hi Kento,

Thanks for accurate description, the problem is cristal clear.

As often happens the lens had been damaged by the shock.

All you can do is trying gently to push the lens inside with your finger while turning camera on and off.

This will probably not work, as lens gears are bent and damaged.

The whole lens barrel must be taken apart and remounted. Probably some part need replacement.

If it is still under guaranty it wont be easy get this kind of repair covered, only way to cover it is if the camera came like this in package, I don't think you can get away with it.
