Casio Exilim lens stuck half out.

\015 The camera will turn on and say "LENS ERROR"Please Help\015

Do these step by step

1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh\015\012set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or\015\012better) and turn the camera on.

2.Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new\015\012batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30\015\012means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in\015\012the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fixes 4, 5, and 7 as a means to provide extra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.

4.Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling.\015\012Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the\015\012power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus\015\012while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide\015\012pins in their slots.

5.Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea\015\012of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens.\015\012Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat”\015\012setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum.Be careful

the following steps are littile bit dangerous.do it at your own risk

6.3Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the\015\012intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other\015\012variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of\015\012your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method.\015\012HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging\015\012internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables,\015\012or cracking LCD screens.


7.Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this\015\012method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously\015\012some potential for damaging your camera by using this method.\015\012Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens\015\012barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or\015\012align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes\015\012looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the\015\012side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens\015\012barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there).\015\012While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that\015\012the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If\015\012you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera. The following\015\012photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND I JUST PLACE MY HAND AT THE UNEVEN SIDE OF THE LENS AND PUSH IT UP,WHEN I DID THAT IT STRAIGHTENED AND THEN WHEN I TURNED IT ON IT SHOWED ONLY ABOUT 5 PICS AND I CAME HERE ON THE SITE AND IT SAYS TO TAKE THE BATTERY OUT AND I TOOK BOTH THE BATTERY OUT AND ADAPTER AND THERE WAS ALL THE PICS.

Hi there, I dropped my Casio Exilim (EX - Z80) a while ago and the lens got stuck half out. However after a while it fixed itself and I can record videos on it perfectly but when I take photos they come out too bright, as if I'm taking photos in the sun with the flash on. Is there an easy way to fix this or am I going to have to spend a fortune? Thanks, Hollee

A friend of mine dropped my camera while the lens was extended. The camera now does not turn on but makes noise and attempts to turn on.
