Blurry screen After going to the beach, we got home to watch our video, and the screen on the video camera was blurry. I'm guessing some sand or water got in the camera, but i'm not sure. The screen is still blurry, can anybody help?

If you got sand/water in unit, it may damaged the circuits. You may have it cleaned completely, which could cost as much as a new camera.

Beach dust dropped in beach.

Cameras and beaches don\'t do well at all. The most important thing is to remove as much sand as possible without scratching any part of the camera. I\'d suggest to not wipe it at all, but take it home and try to vacuum the sand and dust off. It can get wedged in the drive mechanism for the lens focusing and will stop the camera from going through its normal initialization cycle. Check around the edges of where the lens moves in and out for sand, and try to suck it out.

I went to the beach, and took puctures there. When i got home and tried to use my camera, the lens wouldnt fully expand and the camera says "lens error"

My guess is that the lens has some sand in it. You might just want to open the lens as much as possible and give it a good cleaning with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab as well as blowing it out with canned air. I know it seams kinda nuts, but if cleaning it doesn't work try to manually push the lens in slightly to free up some stuck sand. Also, you could tap the camera on a hard surface with a small piece of fabric under it to try to knock out some more of the sand.
Hope that helps!

Lens error was at beach no sand but yet when turned on it says lens error

Anyone who has ever been near the beach knows that as soon as you are within 100ft of the sand you will feel sand in between your toes even with your sneakers and socks on. That's because sand is in the air and contaminates everything. Therefore, if you value your camera, mp3 player, radio, cellular phone PDA, or laptop computer, DO NOT TAKE IT anywhere near the beach. Solution: use an air compressor. Blow air & dust through the hose first. Use clean air to blow out extended lens area. Open and close lens and blow out several times. Firmly jolt the camera into the palm of your hand to dislodge the dirt particle. Use more air. You may notice sratches on the side of the lens cylinder that were created by the particles of sand. 99% pure isopropyl alcohol (91% if you're in a pinch is available at any drug store) can also be used on a Q tip and swabbed around the lens barrel cylinder. Make sure you use a few CLEAN Q tips on the lens. Now go buy a disposible camera and $10 mp3 player for the beach and leave the $200+ camera and IPOD at home or at the hotel room. Now you'll surely have a wonderful time at the beach.

Camera keep shutting off right after turning on and picture blurr

i have had this problem with a few digtal items, yes the if the screen was up and the sun baked the it you will get a blurry screen, also deping on the amount of time and the conditons sometimes the salty air will oxidize those little components faster than you can imagine making you have to return to the store, first try using an eraser on your battery terminal for the power issue

I think I have sand in my casio casing. The pictures are sometimes blury and the zoom doesnt always go in and out. We took it to the beach, and well...... Is a Casio Elilim ex-s600. Do you know how I...

You will not be able to clean out the sand yourself. The sand probably got in to the mechanics of the lens and other moving parts.

The inside of the lens is made like a watch, and is very precision for calibration. Once you open up your camera and especialy the lens, I have doubts it will ever work again!

Servicing the camera may not be cost effective. You can enquire to Casio to see what they would charge for this type of service. I would think it would be more feasible to replace the camera.

If you want to take a camera to a beach, make sure it is in a sealed containment. The water vapour, any salt spray, sand, and or sand dust will certainly cause damage to even the most expensive cameras!

Detaching the lens

Perhaps a Vacuum will help if it is sand in the mechanism then has to be sucked out - not blasted further in. But I fear it may now be terminal. Preparing these item is not an economic proposition

Camera makes weird sounds and blurry images

It sonds like the lens went with you to the beach on March break. Because it sounds as though there might be sand in the lens. Either that or the camera received a knock or drop. The lens on the camera needs to be repaired and the camera reprogrammed.
