Question about Casio Exilim EX-S600 Digital Camera
When switched on lens opens very noisily (grating, clicking noise) then closes again immediately, thus obviating normal use. Any ideas?
Same problem as well. With 2 of the same cameras. An incredibly poorly placed on switch (3 of them) causes the camera to easily be turned on when it shouldn't. This causes the lens to extend, which isn't fantastic if its in your pocket. It's a shame that a simple design problem causes this camera to suck since its images are actually quite good.

I have two of these cameras for at work. Both have this problem. If you hold the power key and repeatedly press the top key (one that shoots the picture) or hold the power key and then press and hold the shot key the camera is forced to take a picture. The camera seems to be ok then. There is no damage to the lens, as the pictures and quality are the same. It is definitly a design flaw, and/or software issue. Good Luck, and keep trying untill it fixes itself.

I had this problem while it was still under warrenty, and casio fixed it for me no questions asked. turn around time was very quick. but now i have done it again, and am not in warrenty, so i guess i will be buying another camera.

Mine is doing the same thing. I have tried everything I can think of but it still will not work. I thik it is a design flaw as you stated. I sent the problem to Casio Tech support today and I am waiting for a reply....

Typical Casio problem... web says design flaw. Casio refuses warranty. Do NOT BUY this camera is my suggestion!

Serious problem im afraid.did it get a knock??The problem is the lens block assy is damaged and needs replacement,would be cheaper to replace it as very little can be done to repair old assy and usually needs new lens assy which can be very expensive.
