My screen is all white

Hi,

First verify that you didn't just accidentally turn off the LCD. To check, turn the camera on and press the "DISPLAY" or "DISP" button once. One other thing to check is that faded pictures can sometimes be caused by a stuck shutter. Potential symptoms may also include purple scratchy lines showing up on the LCD monitor and the camera's pictures. Other reported symptoms may be extremely distorted images (one reader likened them to the movie "Grudge"). Or blank or black pictures or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card. You may suspect that the camera's shutter is not opening, but this is not the case. Note that the camera's menu functions should show up without any problem. Please note that your camera must be experiencing these symptoms due to a faulty CCD, and not due to other problems. Note that they're going to look for dings and dents. This is a CCD failure and in some cases had been subject to a recall. Contact Casio support-this may be one of the recalls and replacement camera could be on its way. They will do it for free of cost.


Thank you!!

How download firmware?

one. there is no firmware for the Z1200 to download, unless Casio says so. two. You can't put in other firmware in any device if it does not work perfect. Updating a bad working apparatus by trying to change firmware is the only thing you should not try. You will end with a device that can't be used for anything. Any defect will be pinter to as self induced. This link will show you for what camera's Casio released updates of the firmware: Digital Cameras Downloads Support CASIO

When i try to open the camera whith was connected

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.

The card is locked not

Your memory card has been write protected.This can be very easily fixed.
  1. Turn off cam.
  2. Take out the mem. card. (it's probably located near the battery. press down on it and release it. Then it will pop out.)
  3. Slide the small switch on the side of the card to the position marked with an unlocked padlock.
  4. Put card back in and turn on cam. Done. that should fix it.
This problem is very common among camera users; Up to now I have copy-pasted this answer 3 times!

The shutter button does not

Every item on this camera runs off a power supply which is called a capacitor. The capacitor stores needed voltage to run each circuit. If The zoom doesn't work the capacitor has gone bad. In your case the circuit for the power button has a capacitor problem. Generally the cost to repair is higher than the cost of a new digital camera these days. Look at Ebay and there are nearly 10,000 digital camea for sale everyday that don't work selling for parts

Switch on camera and message reads LENS ERROR, it

Hello

The problem is 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.

The screen is black and when I take a picture 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.

My camera will not charge.

this is probably a faulty of the camera charging system. if this was my camera i search on ebay international seller one external charger for your batterie type. you find in ebay 100 models of external charger, so you charge you batterie and the camera goes like new. you can find a new charger with one or twoo new batterie all togheter to 10 euro . this is the better system to not spend a high fixing sum.

ok?? it s not so important if the camera dont charge the important is that the camera goes perfectly. ciao paolo italy
