Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z850 Digital Camera

Talk to EX-Z850 via USB??

I have an EX-Z850 given to me because the LCD screen is broken.  It takes pictures/movies fine, but I can't change STUFF (like date, mode ....) without the screen. Can I talk to it over the USB?  If the OS is Linux, I can get my head around that.  As it stands, it's a wonderful, but badly crippled tool. Do you guys have a schematic? I have a perfectly good Z750, so I'm not at the end of my tether, but it's a shame to have the 850 sitting around.  Maybe it's a webcam waiting to be born.  It's got all the right parts.

    Yeah! I have the same problem with Casio-Z850!

    I had broken the LCD but the camera operates fine.

    I'd like to connect it to PC and take shots from the pc or use camera as WEBCAM.

    Is it possible to connect tha cam in this maner???

Thanks, that's known solution for LCD replacement, but the problem is "How to talk to Z850 via USB?"

I think it must be a trick to connect this cam like a webcamera.

Another option is to replace the screen yourself. I just crack my screen on my Z850 and will attempt to replace the screen myself. You can purchase a replacement screen on ebay for about $60. Checkout http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVMzSvI2G-w for video of some guy replacing the screen. Looks easy enough.

Casio Exlimi 850


Hi, either something is blocking the CCD lens and acts just like the lens cover or the CCD is dead. If it is the latter, you may have to call Casio support and inquire repairs. Pls determine first if it is still under warranty or the if repair cost would still be economically reasonable. Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Regards
