Camera beeps twice and then shuts off. Does let me look at pictures.
I think this may have happened from taking my camera to the beach. However, everytime I try to turn it on with the power or the red button, it makes a beeping noise twice and the lens closes. The screen still works fine and I can look at pictures that I have stored just fine. Is there any type of quick fix for this or will it have to be taken to a repair shop??

You have a "lens error". That is something that can only be fixed by sending it into Casio. I would call them first and they will tell you everything that you would need to send in. Their number is 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1.

Of course! You mentioned the beach so maybe salty water or sand got inside the camera. (Salt can interfere with the electrical connections inside the camera and possibly short-circuit.) Send it back for repair to replace any damaged parts you may need. They'll send it back good as new :)
You mean SD400 camera doesn't show any error sign and it just doesn't have live view to shoot picture? If yes, its problem of bad CCD imager and Canon will provide free of cost repair facility for SD400 camera. Click Canon CCD Advisory for details.
Not sure about the battery... that could be it and I haven't tried switching it out for a new one yet, but in the meantime I am getting around this problem my grabbing the lens with my fingers and "helping" come all the way out... just give it a little pull, a little encouragement and it will come all the way out... but the trick is that you have to do it right after you try to turn it on and before you get the beeps...
So if your lens is stuck out right now and the camera is powered off, then turn the camera on and then pull the lens out before you get the beeps... once you give it a little tug, the mechanics should take over and it will extend all the way... the LCD will come on and you'll be good to go...
Like I said, I'm having this problem too and my girlfriend suggested we change the battery... I guess that's possible, that the battery is not holding enough of a charge to push the lens all the way out... I'll investigate how much a new battery costs and then determine if I think its worth a try...
There may be a problem with the software of the camera. This also happens sometimes when there is moisture in the camera. the moisture usually comes when you take the camera from an air conditioned atmosphere to open and sunny areas.
this usually becomes alright on its own; however if not hten you will have to take the camera to Service center..
it has been few days since you posted this, so i think the problem may have rectified itself
Hi, ' Sand generally has no effect on the electronic side of the camera, however it will definitely can cause problems with the mechanical aspect of the camera such as the zoom lens. this can be removed with a can of compressed air.
Suntan lotion likewise should not be any problem except for smudges on the housing/casing and especially bad for the lens. Additionally, the lotion would help the sand adhere to crevices and nooks of the camera. Wiping should get you just fine.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
The following blog outlines some simple repair options for a lens error. But please first try the listed Fix #2. I heard that fix particularly works well for a camera who's battery had run down with the lens open. Please post back here with a follow up comment if any of the fixes work:
The Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera is programmed to shut off automatically after a few minutes if it is not being used. This helps to conserve battery power. When the camera shuts itself off, it will make a continual beeping sound.
To use the camera after it has shut off, simply push the shutter button or self-timer button to take a picture. If you are not going to use your camera, turn the power switch to OFF.
The camera will also beep in rapid sequence after you press the self-timer button. The camera will continue to beep in faster sequence until a picture is taken (approximately 10 seconds). A final long beep signals that a picture has been taken.
NOTE: It is normal for the camera to beep while downloading photos to a computer.
