Question about Ricoh Caplio R1V Digital Camera

1 Answer

Caplio R1v does not start any more. Lens is not moving after I removed depleted batteries. Lens came out, but after replacing fully loaded batteries screen does not show anything, lens is not moving. The only thing I see happening is flashing of the green AF/fl LED when switching on or off. It seems there is a software problem? Connecting a USB cable flashes green AF/fl LED.

Have you tried to take photos & then use the USB cable to download those trial photos? or take test photos and then swap your SD card into another SD card camera?
The rear screen has all its electrics passing through a flat ribbon connector, as this is the only link to the main body of the camera. This ribbon folds over itself at 45 degrees within the case when the camera is assembled.
This fold is OK until the camera is compressed accidently, when that fold in the ribbon may become a crease, and then one or more of the connections within the ribbon may fail at the crease, and while camera works otherwise, you have then lost function of the rear screen.
Take some test photos & if they download OK, I'd suspect this ribbon connector is the problem. Camera Good, Screen not working.
I currently have this problem with my R1v & have yet to see if a replacement ribbon connector is available from a Repair facility, so my help may only give you insight, without end-solution.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.

Error 00-00-00 30-00-28

The error code will be due to bad batteries. Insert new batteries fully charged the camera will instantly try to zoom in or zoom out to adjust focus. If this does not happen then there is a problem with the Lens Assembly.
Lens has been forced due to an accident or too much sand or dirt is clogging it up.
You need to re-calibrate the focus.

Hope this helps.

Ricoh Caplio R4 Lens

This is an easy fix for a camera shop. Just tell them that your lens is off track, and needs to be aligned. It should cost less than $50.00. If you are really good with electronics, you can attempt it yourself. Just let me know if you need the schematic to the camera. Best regards, Bill
