Question about Casio Exilim EXZ75 Digital Camera

Flash Problems - Please Help!

I am having a horrible time with my EX-Z75!
Everytime I take a picture outside, the flash is so bright it washes out the picture. and everytime i take one in a darker setting the flash never goes off and it comes out dark. I have tried all flash settings ... auto, on, soft,and the red eye reduc. and none of them work. In the beginning it worked perfectly, for about a year -- so i was wondering if there was any way I could reset the settings to be how they came when i got it out of the package?! Or if there is a solution to this flash problem,
Thanks!

    Does the flash go off outside?



    When you view the pictures and use the zoom function to zoom in, does the pictures ery thin vertical have lines through it?



    Can you post an example?



    All the best and Happy Snapping :-)

Sounds like you flash circuit board is faulty and will require replacing. In Australia the approximate cost for this repair is arounf $140 - $160 AUD.

You asked in the origanal question how you can reset the camera to its origanal settings - Firstly make sure you are not is EASY mode. If you are you need to switch that off by going pressing the menu button, scrolling down the menu until you come to "turn off easy mode" select that. Now you are in normal mode again, press the menu button there are 3 selections you need to go to setup which is the tab on the far right of the LCD. Once it is highlighted press the up selection button (it will take you to the bottom of the settings tab sub menu. There you will find reset camera. press ok. press the up selection again and press ok again. this will reset almost all of the camera settings. You may need to change the display still. You can do this by pushing the button that says DISP.

Good luck and Happy snapping

The flash goes off outside and inside, but not consistently. i went to an outside concert and it was dark and the flash would not go off on any setting. and in the beginning of the concert when it was sunny. The flash would go off and wash out the picture. I dont have any examples to post, just because i deleted them after it happened -- it wasn't worth it to keep the ruined pics. My considerations for just buying a new camera are high! I have had more problems with this camera than any other.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my camera is a Samsung L73 ZOOM 5.8-17.4mm camera. My problem is that everytime i take a picture, the pictures come out very bright and with horizontal lines crossing the picture...


Sadly, either refer to authorised service centre or replace the unit.
They sold for around $160 in 2008, so it might be cost effective to replace.

My flash won't turn on, no matter what I do. And without the flash, my pictures are horrible. Help please?? I have the EX-S5 and I've only had it about a year.


Possible failure of the flash unit or the trigger to the unit from the main controller unit of the camera. Since you are not able to switch on the flash manually the fault can be due to either of these sections , a possible electronic failure within the camera.
You will need some expertise to open and check for the power to the flash, if so the flash unit is faulty.
If not the controller unit is faulty..

The auto flash on ex-z75 does not work


Try to reset the camera to original manufacturers settings. This option can be found on the Menu
<settings> where it says Reset. If that doesn't fix it then you could have either
a bad flash, bad capacitor or even a bad board. You will need to have your camera repaired or if you are a techy you can do it yourself by purchasing a Mainboard assembly (which includes the flash assembly) from Ebay.. costs only around $12.. This will take care of the flash/capacitor/board issues.

I have loved this camera but everytime I take a flash picture it causes the subjects to close their eyes. I've never had this problem with other cameras. Is the flash not timed properly or is it too...


Are you using the red-eye setting? An initial flash causes the pupils of your subjects to contract, followed by a second full flash 1 second later.

The trouble is that the first flash is bright, and subjects think its all over so they blink, rub their eyes, look away, and even the photographer may be pointing the camera elesewhere by then.

It is better not to use that setting, and fix the red eye afterwards.
With the flash open, hit the right button until the eye icon goes away.

Casio Exilim z75 - unable to take pictures


Try shutting off your flash and see if it still does that. It sounds like you have a problem with your flash not charging correctly. You can try resetting the camera but I doubt if that will help. I would try just shutting the flash off and see if that would help.

I gave the lense part of the camara a moderate slap, and the camara has worked fine since. looks like a lot of people have the same problem. Most of the people call it black screen problem. the shutter gets stuck. Tap it a few times on the side of the lense part of the camara moving it from bright to dark objects back and forth.
good luck.
