Question about Casio Cameras

1 Answer

My exilim camera is taking black pictures. Two days ago it was fine and all of a sudden when I turn it on the display screen and previous pictures are dark. When I take a picture or video now it is just black. Does anyone know what is wrong with it?

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

    Thanks for the advice but the shutter does open and close.

    Have you downloaded and checked the pictures on your computer yet? If the files when downloaded to your computer also show as black, then your likely experiencing a CCD image sensor failure. If so, you might want to check with Casio to see if they'd repair, either under warranty, or just generally for free, as such a failure is rare for a camera these days (not so 5 years ago).

    Now, if the pictures actually look fine on your computer, then it's likely just a problem with your LCD screen. You've either turned it off accidentally, or the screen's ribbon cable needs to be reseated in its connector.

Apparently takes pictures ... but black out the screen .... if you turn on and everything but can not see anything ... Sorry about my English


I see nothing on the monitor screen when I want to capture a picture. The screen monitor remaind black but I can capture new pictures. when I press the play button, I can't see the picture. When I retreive the picture from the camera to a computer, I realize the picture is black and I can't distinguish anything.
But when I introduce the good picture from my computer to the Digital Camera, from the Sceen Monitor, I can visualize only the good picture I introduce in mysefl.
The flash is working properly, the on/Off button is ok, the lens appear to be normal.

Do you have a card reader for the memory card in your camera?

If so, please remove the card from the camera and insert it into the card reader. If the lines are still threre then it's the CCD unit in your camera. Otherwise it's the interface cable.
