Question about Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z700 Digital Camera
I recently dropped my camera and when picking it up spilt coke on it, it continued to work for a few days after then the lens wouldnt open properly, leaving the focus blurred. i can still see all the pics and the motor is still working, ie its still trying to push the lens out. i think it might just be sticky inside from the coke causing the jam. any ideas on how to open it up for cleaning with out wrecking it completely? unfortunately im in cairns and the nearest repair shop i have been told is brisbane over 1000km away so i need to try it myself. thanks for you help.
Chances are you are not going to succeed. Water dissolves Coke but Kills cameras. Dropping them does the lens drive mechanism no good at all. Well now you are in a rock and a hard place. 1st thing to do is to go and buy the next camera. Then remove batteries and memory card from the existing camera and wet a tissue and wrap it around the lens barrel and let it stand face down for a couple of hours. Then find a poly bog. and in it put some salt or uncooked rice wrapped in a cloth[hanky?] Put hanky and camera in the bag close tight shut for a day. The idea is to draw out the moisture But I reckon you will need that new camera. As for a repair -forget it - these things don't get repaired

Unfortunately, cola in a camera of any kind is almost always fatal to the camera. The sugar residue with eat away at the plastic and electrical connections. Water is the only thing that will clean the soda (cola) from the camera, (also fatal to cameras). Removing the covers to the camera would give you better access to the damaged areas. I believe they used tri-head screws on the case screws. A proper sized flat blade screw driver and a bit of muscle will get theses screws out. Remove the battery as soon as possible. It is possible to flush or soak cameras with water, but you must dry them out quickly and throughly, best with clean compressed air. I wish you luck
