I dropped my Casio camera, and now everytime I turn it on, it makes a beepy/click sound. ( I'm assuming something is wrong with the lens)-Because all the pictures are blurry and fuzzy. How much would it cost to repair this? And what should I do to fix it?
The problem is the focus motor gears. If the lens extends ok, but there is a "beeping" noise, the focus gears are knocked out of alignment. The beeping is actually the tiny focus motor spinning. This can be fixed by removing the lens assembly and putting the focus motor gears back into alignment. I've done this on many Exilim camera. Unfortunately, Casio likely won't do this for you, and will want to fix it for more than the camera is worth.

Re: blurry pictures, beep-click noise
You can call the repairs dept and they can give you a pretty good idea over the phone of how much it will cost. Their number is 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1.
They might ask you to send it in so they can look at it but they will send you an estimate of what it would cost to fix it before they do any work.
If your camera will stay on long enough you can try resetting the camera but I doubt if that will do anything.

Sounds like the focus motor came loose - you need to take it apart and repair the gear that drives the lens assembly for focusing. The noise you're hearing is the motor trying to focus but since the lens cannot focus it continues to run and signals an error.
Blurriness usually has to do with the lens, not always, but more than likely. Make sure no dirt or other kinds of stuff may be on the surface of the lens. It is rare happening that the ccd can become dirty from either dust or other debris or other kinds of things such as moisture. Any digital camera is subject to damage from dirt, moisture, smoke may cause problems, and any kind of impact can damage the track of the lens, or the lens as well. A slight drop can cause problems or future problems. Some may be able to be fixed, others cannot. Blurriness may be caused by internal circuit problems, because the focus is controlled by a processor. If this is the case, the camera needs repair at a repairman or someone who knows the camera, such as the Casio repair department, and can adjust it's electronics on a computer with special software specifically for that use.
Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
This is something that will probably have to be sent in to be fixed.
First try resetting your camera.
In REC mode press menu
go to setup tab
go up to reset
press right arrow
highlight reset & press set.
If that doesn't work send it in to repairs.
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.
That is what casio calls a lens error. You will have to send it in and have it fixed. The cameras don't do well even when dropped from that short distance.
Call repairs at 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 1. Tell them that you talked to tech support already otherwise they will try and transfer you to their tech support.
