Well I've had my casio z750 for about 2 years now and it is an awesome camera. Just recently it's been giving me some trouble every now and then by suddenly going black when I try to adjust the lens. After it goes black, a message pops up saying "lens problem" and then I have to turn it off and on to get it to work properly again. Is mine on the verge of breaking down completely or can it be a less severe problem?

Re: my casio is acting up
Whether it is going to die any time soon or is just sick is a guess as with all electrical stuff.
My guess even if it is repairable -it wont be because the cost will be well on the way to the price of a new one
But check Casio first- you never know your luck

The first thing I would check is the park brakes coming fully off when released. If the units are rusted and stiff you will have dragging brakes which will give the symptoms you describe. After all it has been sitting for a year with the park brake on.
If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality
variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure
cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid,
because the camera shutter fault.
I've seen a lot of Casio chargers go bad, not charge the battery, and then this is what happens. I've been using an aftermarket charger and battery I got off eBay, and they work great. I've even used the aftermarket charger to "revive" batteries that the Casio charger wouldn't charge up.
Ritz LIED. What u can try doing is resetting the camera.
Press menu go to setup tab go up one to reset press right arrow, highlight reset press set button in middle of arrows.
Also make sure you are only pressing shutter button half way down and allow time to focus before pressing rest of way down. Can also try changing focus mode from spot to multi. I believe that is under the rec tab in the menu. I think it is called AF AREA. Can't remember for sure.
Try that. If it doesn't work then you will have to send it into casio.
Most digicam last only for about three years working in good condition, after that troubles starts to make your head turns, I suggest not to keep one longer than that period of time. Thats the reason they upgrade models every three to six months!
Even casio seem confused by this question!
It seems that the camera will loose it's settings if the battery is dead or the camera is not connected via USB. Even if the battery is charged it could loose the settings within 24hrs.
