Can't find night mode

You can't find a night mode on the EX-Z40, because it is not there. This nice point and shoot camera does most of the things automatic and has little extra menu's like sport or night shots. And with a max of 400 iso, it will be difficult to shoot without flash in the dark. Although you can switch of the flash.On the bottom site of the rail with the set knob in the centre you can chose the flash mode when in the rec mode. Then you can cycle trough the flash menu. Giving you automatic, off, always on or red eye reduction. Look on the top of the screen to see what you have chosen.

Camera lens wont open

Saw a similar problem recently, same cause, and result was the lens was jammed.

Did manage to wiggle it free after many attempts...it only stays on for a few seconds before faulting and going off...but it's a bit hard to get a hold on the edge of the lens to pop-out the low side.

Started by laying it on it's back and checking the level of the lens edges for the low spot, then used a thick sewing needle to lift up while turning the unit on (again and again) until the gear-ring popped back in during the lens-check at start-up.

Trying to insert 4 gb memory card

That is correct. The camera was designed to work with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Download pix from the Exlim Z40 camera to my computer

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

System error 0e01 ..

1. Take out the SD card if you have one in the camera.

2. Remove the batteries and leave them out for 24 hours. Put in GOOD batteries and DO NOT PUT THE SD CARD BACK IN THE CAMERA.

3. Power up the camera. See what happens.

if that doesnt help.......

I would suggest to reflash Your cams firmware if it is possible.
1. Download the firmware and extract the .bin file;
2. Copy it to SD card root folder (with SD reader I guess as Your cam is non-responsive);
3. Hold down Menu and switch cam on and proceed...
Best and hope this may be of some help

installing the firmware did the trick for many people....

if it still doesnt solve ur problem afyer u ve installed the firmware.... its time to call casio....

have a nice day and good luck

SD memory cards

Remove the card, slide the lock switch back and forth
several times to clear any dust off the contacts. Unlock
the card, then try it again.
Can the camera read the card? Is there anything on it?
Can the camera re-format/erase it?

Can you plug the memory card into a laptop, either directly,
or by using an adapter for the PCMCIA slot, and test it?

On my laptop, the card mounts as if it were a hard-drive,
with a drive letter. I can then browse through it, using
Windows explorer.

Once (if) the card is detected by the PC, open up MyComputer,
and click on:


This should show you additional columns with hard-drive

1) Check to see how big the memory card is (or detects)

How much room is left ?!

2) How is it formatted: FAT-16, FAT-32, NTFS

3) If the card is NTFS (not likely) make sure you
set the root security settings:

Righ click on the SD memory drive letter:

---> Properties ----> Security ----> Add ---> Everyone

Then set the EVERYONE's access level to FULL CONTROL

If you get an error message, stating that you are not
authorized to view or change the security settings for
this device, go into advanced security settings, and
take ownership of the device. Then exit and try again.

(You need to have an administrator priv's account to do this)

4) Try to browse the memory card, do you see any files ?

5) Try to copy them to your computer ?

6) Was the memory card full ? --> clear it, delete files

7) Can you reformat the memory card ?

Right click ---> format ---> accept any default settings

8) On you icon tray bar, look for a green arrow icon:

Click safely remove drive....

Wait for Windows to properly finalize and the drive
(memory module) and then remove it from the PC

9) If you do not own a laptop, take the card back to the store,
where you bought it, and ask them to try to recover any
pictures or files that may be on it, and then clear and
reformat it.

10) At this point, if the card will not function, it is time to
purchase another one.

11) Flash memory cards will fail after a limited number of
read/write cycles, due to internal degradation
with use. Unlike most other electronics, these chips have
a finite life (erase/write) cycles.

12) Don't overlook an "lock" or protection settings implemented
by the camera, to protect you from you :)

The camera could be simply telling you that there are
forgotten pictures on this stick and you cannot
over-write them unless you unlock the card first.

Password protected?
Encrypted ?

Good luck.

When i turn on my


Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

This is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take the unit to your nearest service centre. Feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.

The problem might be that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.
