    hi ZJ...
    thanks for your reply: yes, all modes a problem taking pics outside (lots of light). Indoor photos and video work fine. thanks for the link, tho it doesn't address my specific problem which seems to be with the opening and closing mechanism of the shutter.
    two things are occurring 1) with the camera turned ON and the lens facing the sunlight, you can see the shutter (lens area) rapidly open and shut, open & shut, etc.... while just holding it there... not pushing any buttons. if you take it out of the light, it stops. 2) when i take a photo outside while watching the shutter (lens area), i can see that the shutter (or at least a portion of it) stays open for another 2 seconds...(not using long shutter speed) which is the obvious cause for the over exposure. any way to get the shutter to act normally? i didn't drop it, or mis-treat it in anyway... it just started happening. thanks again. r

In all modes, your images have this same fail? If YES, its possible that your CCD is go to bad. Check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions: Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device)

This isn't easy to solve it, and you will need to visit your digital camera service local.

Hope this helps.

Hi! We currently have a problem with our camera (casio EX-S770). every picture i take outdoors are white, while indoors, the pictures horizontally striped, what should we do? and is there a CASIO company...


One of two likely problems. First possible problem is that you're not in auto mode, but one of the camera's manual modes (such as for night shots). First verify that you are indeed in automatic mode. Second possible problem may be a stuck shutter. 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.

Casio EX-Z60 camera - photos are whitened or brightened


If you enlarge the picture you have just taken, is there same lines running accross the picture?

If so, the shutter magnets are causing interferance and causing the picture to overexpose and have tiny lines running through it.

In Australia the complete lens will need to be replaced as the shutter does not come seperate and this is very expensive.

Sorry for the bad news.

Overexposed photos in otherwise normal settings in casio ex-s500


It is the shutter (or at least it was for me) I found a simple test here: http://www.mydc.com.tw/repair/knowledge_en/casio-exilim-ex-s600-overexposure-t17.html
I repaired it myself, but it took me a whole afternoon and lots of patience.
The hard part is taking the camera apart, once I got to the shutter I just activated it manually so to dislodge any pieces that might have gotten jammed, then placed it back together again and it worked! :).
It's really hard to take apart, it's like a puzzle sometimes, to find which screws are keeping it together. I also had a bit of hard time when it came to put the zoom back together again.
But I guess it beats throwing the camera away.
I'm still puzzled on how the CCD works so that an overexposure would make horizontal overexposed lines, but everything points to that. Fixed shutter, lines be gone.

Casio exilim EX-S500 overexpose


If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

It's need repair camera machine shutter.

Picture Problems


Unfortunately the lens shutter mechanism isn't working properly. If a picture is taken in bright light, I'm guessing the photo is way over exposed? The best solution is to replace it with a good, used lens assembly.

Very Bright Outdoor Photos with lines


The shutter is stuck. The electronic "noise" created by the solenoid trying to move the shutter blades causes the lines on your pictures. The bright outdoor pictures is due to the fact that the shutter is jammed open. You can try tapping the camera on the sides and bottom. This may jar the baldes loose. Failing that, you will have to find a shop that can obtain a replacement lens assembly for your camera.
