Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Case problem My camera is functioning properly (as far as I can tell - no notice of degradation of pictures). But, the case is not fitted tight at the top along where the power button is located. Any suggestions or will this have to go to a CASIO repair shop? Can any camera repair fix this? The camera is about 6 months old. The "gap" is where the shiney bar is that has the shutter release and power button and is widest at the power button end.

    I suspect they will claim user damage. Now I don't remember dropping it, but maybe someone dropped it and replaced it where I left it. Since I posted, DS has tried to fix. Now the LCD is showing damage as well (black spot and white area). Pics seem okay, but can't see all the settings. Suspect I will have to replace.

    Is it possible for end user to try and salvage with replacement LCD from "parts" camera on Ebay?

  • Kay Bens Jun 23, 2007

    I am pretty good at taking things apart and putting them together. Plan is to get another Exilim (60Z or 75Z if it takes the same battery) for compatibility. I would like to try adn salvage this one if possible -- but need help on getting past the first set of screws. I figure I would buy another for carrying in my bag, keep the first (if I fix it) for days at the beach, etc., and still look for my UltraZoom. Really cuts into what I can spend now on the Ultrazoom, but know I will always want a small camera I can carry anytime.

    Dismantling a camera can be an awesome business unless your are good at fine instrument work.
    My advice - get the new camera.
    Then fiddle with the existing one for parts etc you make get lucky and have two cameras or you may have knowledge and a pile of pieces - that you sell on E-bay ;-)

    Get the new one and have fun with the old one -
    Camera parts on E-Bay--- HMMMMM!!!

LCD Screen is showing degradation


One of my EDTVs has the same issue, though on a much smaller scale (it doesn't degrade the picture at all; it's only noticeable when the top of the screen is black, and it doesn't go down very far). Online reviews of the TV showed me it does have this problem commonly, so yours may too. It must be something you need to get it serviced for.

Where can I get various problems with my Leica C11 repaired or overhauled? Basically, it need a new rubberized back panel (chemical damage?) and the zoom is sluggish or stuck much of the time. I love this...


Hi David, thanks for the extra info.

In that case, the best place by far for your particular camera is Leica's own service centre in Germany.

The C11 sold in such tiny numbers for such a brief time that even Leica themselves may have trouble replacing the rubberised back panel with an original part, but if anyone does have the ability to locate the part it's them. The other problem is that the original part was clearly an unstable compound, so spares may have degraded as well or may soon start to degrade once fitted to your camera. Leica would normally have revised this part once they were aware, but as there are so few C11's in existence the retooling costs would be uneconomical to remanufacture the part.

Good luck, and I sincerely hope that I'm proved wrong!.

I know the screen comes off I have seen the repairman remove it before but I don't remember what he did and we would like to remove the dust off the inner screen can you help us.


You should be able to work it up another inch or two. Use firm and steady pressure. It's a tight fit... then you should see four screws on the back side of the frame. Remove all 4 screws and then hold the top edge firmly... slowly pull the entire screen out of the frame. Remeber when you put it back in, there are some pins along the inside top edge of the frame, as the frame is pushed back down to its original possition you may have to flex the top frame out a bit to allow the pins to go back into the holes. this is all visible from the top side, provided you have good lighting. I nope this helps...

Buttons Messed Up and Screw Driver Size


I had exactly this problem and was able to fix it.

Two of the screws on the case are 'special', with a Y-shaped slot. The appropriate screwdriver seems to be known as a "tri-wing" screwdriver and is sold on ebay (and elsewhere) to open the Nintendo Wii and DS amongst other things. I bought one on ebay, and it worked fine although I think one size smaller would have been better. The screwdriver is labelled 360/Y x 50.

Opening the case was easy. If in doubt there are videos on youtube showing how to replace the LCD display that show how to do it. The only place it was tight was on the side just below the shutter button.

In my case the problem appeared to be that the ribbon cable connecting the button-membrane to the main circuit board had been creased (folded too tightly on itself) although I have heard that the same problem can occur if it isn't properly seated in its socket on the main board. The buttons worked perfectly with the case open, but failed whenever the ribbon cable was squished flat by closing up the case.

I folded the edge of a small piece of paper to make a small roll, and taped it in position just behind the crease in the ribbon cable so that it prevented the crease from flattening completely even under the pressure of screwing the camera together again.

Amazed and delighted to have my camera fully functional again for the price of a cheap screwdriver and 30 minutes fiddling.

Screen on back of camera does not show picture of what i am takin


For the solution for the latter two posters, check this link. Canon will repair the camera at no cost if it is determined that this the problem, regardless of warranty status. Your description of the issue fits the technical notice.

For the original poster, it seems that the LCD is no longer working. This is not covered by the service notice, and if your camera is out of warranty, it would cost to have it repaired.

I have a canon powershot sd10 ad the flash stopped working .ithink because the settin changed and i dont know how to restore it to facorty settings


You can restore it to factory settings by turning the camera on, and then holding the menu button down for five seconds, then following the on-screen prompts.

But if that doesn't help, next thing to check would be to make sure that all screws are present and tight along the external case of the camera. The case screws not only hold the camera case on, they also serve as a safety switch to turn the flash off when the case is opened (an exposed flash can give a severe shock). Try to find a replacement screw if you notice one missing.

"function" button


I dunno where my manual is, but the only time I use that button is when reviewing pictures in camera. If I want to delete the image currently displayed, I press "function" and "esc" instead of having to navigate all the menus. As for pointer in top window, can you clarify? Do you mean along the left edge of the LCD display? The arrow there shows up when you activate certain features of the camera. Manual white balance mode will bring up "WB" indicator, higher sensitivity the "ISO H", continuous rapid sequence shot mode the "Cnt" indicator. As far as battery usage goes, this camera can be a hog. If you run it with LCD and backlight all the time, you'll run out of battery in no time. I haven't timed it, but maybe two hours. However, if you make judicious use of power, it's lasted me a day of travel snapshots. Always carry a spare set of batteries though. Nice thing is if you run out, easy to find emergency spares at a store. I've been more or less satisfied with this camera. Image quality is good, low light sensitivity pretty good, size not smallest, but manageable, ok zoom. Pretty good all around camera, although current cameras of same new price range are now much better. I've been having some problems with the switch, and don't remove the memory card with the power still on!

Types of filter lenses to use with DSC-F505 camera


I bought a Hama skylight filter for the express purpose of protecting the lens. I've not noticed any degradation in image quality. Of course, ultimately the filter will block some of the light that's hitting the CCD, but it's so little as to not be noticeable. Being as the lens cap clips into the thread of the lens then yes, it does still fit perfectly into the thread of the filter, so no problem there!
