Casio Exilim - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

You can often successfully recover deleted photos from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended this data recovery as it saved my life many times.

This seems to be a software problem with your camera. Your camera should, if on AUTO mode, automatically expose your photo accurately. Try half pressing the shutter button (used to take pictures) while outside to adjust focus and exposure, then press the button fully to take picture. If your camera cannot adjust to take a properly exposed picture (not bright white), then it is possible that the shutter speed is stuck on a too high speed, outside daytime shutter speed should be fast (1/1000 sec). Or if your shutter speed adjust accurately, it could be the aperture if the aperture is not small enough for daylight shooting. This is likely a software problem. Try adjusting your settings manually and see if the picture turns out!

It happens because some alkaline batteries just don't have the initial surge of power output required to drive all the little motors, the display and so on.

You need lithium batteries, like the 8x Ultimate Lithium.
They are expensive initially, but on average are more economical than the cheaper stuff.

I've tested them on my Kodak Z712 IS, and any owner of this camera knows what I'm talking about.

The best -and cheapest- solution I found, is the rechargeable Li-Ion batteries.
I got 2 batteries and one charger. I'm using one battery, while the other one is charging.

The battery holders can be fragile. You may have to attempt to repair rather than replace.

Most likely the arrow key switch is broken or the contacts are corroded. If it's a snap-button switch, it needs to be replaced. If this is bad, I recommend replacing the others also. If it's a conductive rubber button (like most TV remote controls), the conductive patch on the inside is worn and needs to be repainted with carbon/silver conductive paint. A miniature snap-button switch is generally less than a dollar from Mouser Electronics - soldering skills are required for replacement. Conductive paint for rubber button switches is $10.45 for a 1 gram tube. It has a very limited shelf life once it's opened, so use up the rest on the other camera buttons, and the power, channel and volume buttons on your favorite TV remote control (if you can get it apart without breaking the case)
Cameras are typically difficult to take apart for repair. You'll have to consider the value of the camera versus the effort to get to the control buttons. The electronics inside are sensitive to static electricity damage, so you should work on an anti-static mat and use an anti-static wristband with it..

I looked up the PDF for your camera, and it says: "use only an SD memory card or a Multimedia card with this camera. Proper operation is not guaranteed when any other type of card is used." I did not see a maximum size listed, but some cameras only accept 4GB, some 8GB. I think the important thing is "use only SD card".

Let the camera dry out completely. If it was not salt water it may be ok. Put it in a warm dry place for a long time. It may take weeks for the insides to get dry.....remove the battery while doing this if possible.

All you can do is reset the electronics to factory defaults. Or contact mfg for protocol to accomplish this.

The best thing to do is replace the camera.

The manual indicates that the green light flashing once indicates that the camera is powering down. (see page 218 lamp indications)

The first thing you can try is to turn off the camera, remove the battery, remove the memory card. Hold for one minute , pop the battery in(but not the memory card) turn on the camera by pressing the power on buttn and holding it for 15 seconds. This will not only reset the camera but also force the motor to retrace/extend the lens if it is a lens related issue that is causing the camera to shut down.

Let me know if you need more help

Some cameras, as well as having the main battery, also have a 'button-cell' type of battery that holds the system information such as date and time etc. I know not whether yours is one of these, but it should tell you in the manual

It could be that your computer does not have the correct codec to play this format. If you download VLCLan software (free) you may be able to see the images as well.

Do these step by step

1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on.

2.Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fixes 4, 5, and 7 as a means to provide extra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.

4.Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.

5.Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum.Be careful

the following steps are littile bit it at your own risk

6.3Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.

7.Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.

Yes, but not directly. First upload your pictures from your camera to your computer, then upload from computer to Facebook.
