Question about Casio QV-R51 Digital Camera

QV R51 problem

I recently went for an outing and used my casio QV-R51 camera. I was doing excellent. Suddenly i found the pictures coming with over brightness and also with horizontal lines. The pictures are still coming fine in the dark with the flash on . So obviously it has something to do with background light and exposure. When i went to a casio authorized repair centre in Hyderabad in India, he says i have to replace the entire CCD lens and shutter mechanism costing Rs.7000 ($125.00). With the present camera prices it did not sound a good proposition. Can anyone tell me what the problem could be and how to get it fixed. I will be very thankful jagadisan

    I have exactly the same problem. Indoors OK, bright light/outdoors the pictures are washed out. In mid light conditions, there are horizontal lines.

If the camera is giving good results indoors then there are less possiblities of damaged CCD. the problem can be with the apparture control system that it is not controlling the iiris in bright light. it should go high in high light and low indoors. it is fixed on low may be due to mechanical friction or the malfanctioning of the control circuit. try contacting other camera repairer then ASC of Casio

Casio QV-R51 Battery Door

Taping the the door is about all you can do. n Battery short life may be another issue -what type of batteries are you using? Ni-Cad or NiMah are the only acceptable AA type cells[Alkaline do not have the oomph] Coming back the to door, there will not be a repair answer to this I feel- there as usually no spare parts availability. Try the Casio Tech Support- you never know your luck

SD card problem

Format the SD card using camera's format function. The SD card should work without a problem. BTW, what do you mean by Camera type: Qv-R41/Qv-R51? The camera should be either 41 or 51. 41 is 4MP and 51 is 5MP. Which camera do you have?
