Question about Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera

Casio Exilim EX-S770

When I turn on the camera (press the power button,) the lense opens, the camera grunts three times, then the lense closes, and the power shuts off. I can still look at pictures on the camera, but I cant take any. I tried to charge the battery and still nothing. The camera says that the battery is fully charged.

    I have the same problem and the green light on the top of the camera flashes all the time. The lens comes out then retracts. My camera is less than 4 months old but it was a present and the friend who gave it to me is not contactable right now.

    Same exact problem. Is this covered underwarranty.

  • devilution May 26, 2008

    I have the same exact problem. The problem occurred after 2 days of using the camera quite often ( vacation )

    I've tried forcing the lens to stay open, but that doesn't seem to work either. I've taken out the battery, Mem card, and even tried turning it on when plugged into the dock on a/c power with no luck

    When I turn the camera on, the lens extends, the camera beeps three or four times, then the lens goes back in and the camera turns off.

    Thanks, I was about to throw it out

    When I turn on my camera, the lense makes 3 distinctive sounds and is very blurry. I then try to adjust the camera and it powers off.

Hey I just tried the banging solution to my EX S770 and it really worked. I did not use the compressed air blow part but I did bang the camera on the bottom on the granite counter top and it working fine. Thanks!

Step 1: Take the camera firmly in hand and bang the bottom part against a hard surface. A desk works really well!

Step 2. Take off the right side molding and blow compressed air (A LOT) in the bottom of the camera.

If it doesn't work repeat step 1 and 2 again.

I had this problem and now it all works out!

Holly Sh&% it really works… I took the battery off, blew in it, took side panel off and blew in it, I banged against my desk 3X.. and …IT WORKS!

Solution #2 really does work. I couldnt believe it. I just firmly banged the bottom of the camera on the counter 2 or 3 times, hit the power button, and it worked. AMAZING GOOD WORK
I also took off the side panel and sprayed air into it, but I think this solution may work without the air.

When I push the power button the lense moves in and out several times then the camera just turns off. I tried charging the battery and holding the power button down for 10 sec. but still does the same...


The power button has two purposes explanable;
1. A firm press and hold would shut down the entire device, where would be common feature for the camera to perform a system check to include the lense functionalilty.

2. A gentle press and release of the same power button should capture a snap shot only after the camera has been powered on, by the similar process as pressing firmly the power button

Remember

Pressing firmly the power button would shut down camera completely after a system check if only the camera was on.

Pressing firmly the power button when the camera is off would turn on the device by performing a system check also.

Important note
The camera when powered on would have an indicator light of ready to capture snap shots.
The camera would autoshut down when left on for an extensive duration without capturing snaps.
The instance of such would generate a camera check once more before powering off completely


The lense adds to the cameras feature capabilities of acquiring images. a function of the lense is capture an impressive image where the mechanism of drawing closer to the object is made possible by a moveable lense. The Olympus FE-340 Digital camera is powered by a battery requiring sufficient energy for a snap shot. keep in mind that, the camera can perform without the lense. However, the device is designed to automatically responded whenever the lense is required.

Important note;
1 a solution to the camera is with the source of energy in which instance batter power.
2.Dislogde the entire power area consisting of battery, check for improper installation; reinstall the battery in appropaitely noticing the installation indications of power supply. Cover the battery compartment properly, and charger afterwords.

Caution
1.Charge the battery for the entire duration known of a full charge.
2.Unplug thereafter when the full charge indicator is visible.
3.Try on the device for improvement in situation by taking photo snap shots

Turn the power off and on again


Hi. I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7. The problem started after while lense was fully open, the battery became 100% empty. I did not have access to new batteries and did not have my charger with me so I put the camera on my car seat and went home. After charging the batteries, I turned the camera Off and the lense retracted 100%. Later on I tried to transfer some pictures to my PC. After connecting the camera to my PC with the dial in the P position and lense fully open I turned the dial to play in order to transfer photos. After transferring the pictures, I turned the camera off and disconnected from the computer.

I turn the camera on to take new pictures next day, The lense would go up, and and turn with lense fully open. It would never close. The screen was black with a message "Turn the camera on and off again". I tried 30 times or more and the same thing would happen again.

Here is what I did to fix my camera and it has been working normally since then.

1- I cleaned around the outside of the lense with lent free cloth

2- I used dust OFF to get raid of the remaining small dust particles from around the lense.

3- While turning the camera off, I pushed (down, up and turn) the lense in (NOT TOO Hard) by my hand. If you push the lense too hard, you may damage the mechanicall moving parts of the lense.

4- After a few tries, the lense retracted 90% +. I then pushed the lense a little harder all the way in, the way it normall retracts. The lense cover also closed 100%.

5- I turned the Camera on and off a few times. It was opening and closing exactly the way it used to. My Cybershot has been working okay since then.

I read a lot and here is what cause my lense to malfunction.

While lense was fully open and battery died, some small particles got on the lense and prevented lense from fully opening or closing.

In summery: two things could have caused your camera lense to malfunction.

1- if you had dropped your camera hard, some mechanical parts may have got damaged or dislocated. In this case you have to open the lense and replace the damaged part, clean and put it back on the camera. This is too risky for most ordinary people. You would most likely make it WORST.

2- If you did not drop it, most likly, some how some small dust particles got on the outside of the lense and they prevent the lense or the lense cover from fully opening and closing. If this is your case, please follow exactly what I did and your camera would be back to normal.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off. Now the camera doesn't open fully and when pusing the "play" button the power...


If the outside of the lense get dirty, those small particles may prevent the lense from opening and closing 100% as nomal times. I had the same problem with my Sony. Here is what I did.

1- I cleaned the outside(sides not the lense itself) of the lense.
2- While turning the camera off, I press on the lense (up and down motion) NOT too hard for a few times untill it either retracted all the way inn or most of the way in. If most of the way in, press the lense a little harder untill it retracts 100%. If you turn it back on, it should work as normal unless some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated. When it fully opens, clean up the outside of the lense and keep it always clean for normal operation.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!

Sony cybershot 7.2 went to shut off camera and lense is still out no power to camera tried to recharge batt. w/no results


Try different batteries. I got the same problem with my cyber-shot. The battery was too low while lense was fully open. I recharged, but the lense would not close. When I turn it on, It would say turn off and on again. I did that for at least 20 times. I finally put another set of batteries and while I turned off the camera, I pressed the lense in very softly. After a couple of times the lense retracted fully. The camera has been working normally ever since.

It is also possible some dirt some how got on the sides of your lense. Try cleaning the sides of the lense.

If you had no luck so far, then your lense may have some mechanical problem. The lense need to be opened and cleaned and put back together.
good luck

Yep. another lens stuck.


it depends on what the problem acctually is. In my experience with cammeras such as these, a problem of this nature is not worth the trouble, but if you really like the cammera then take the covers off by removing the screws around the cammera body. Start by removing the back peace. you wont need to remove the door for the batteries or the two screws around the mount on the bottom of the cammera that hold the screw tripod mount in place. once you remove the backing you will expose at least one more screw on the side that holds the front cover on. you will want to very carefully remove the wires for the backing by pulling back the ribbon cable retainer clip and the ribon cable retainer clip must be pulled back carefully for the shutter switch as well when removing the front pannel of the cammera. Unplug the yellow wire for the micro switch in the front if applicable and then you will have exposed the lense. remove the screws holding the lense assembly in and then look around at the operation. THERE IS A CAPACITOR IN THE FRONT OF THE CAMMERA THAT WILL SHOCK YOU!!! DO NOT TOUCH THE BOARD. I've been shocked by the thing at least 3 times today so dont get all hasty. you will probably notice one of the gears are stuck or something you can buy a new lense assembly and install it but it is probably just as much as the cammera. I would sugges trying to repair it or if it is too damaged throw it away. It depends on what you find. you can look up small gears on line but it also may just need to be set back in or cleaned. You may also want to replace the cammera battery while you are in there. When removing the back pannel start from the bottom of the cammera and slightly hinge up and pull the backing away genly as to not snap the retainers in the upper part of the cammera or yank out the ribbon cable. REMOVE THE BATTERY BEFORE YOU BEGING. WITH THE BATTER REMOVED THE CAPACITOR WILL STILL SHOCK YOU. be careful.

It wont turn on, And the zoom is extended.


I had exactly the same problem. Lens stayed open, when powered on you get three beeps and nothing. I found when I pulled the lens out a little harder it gave a little click. When I powered on it worked perfectly.

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!
