Having problems with your Casio EXILIM EX-Z1000 Digital Camera ?

When I turn on the camera the lens comes out then closes and shuts off. I can view pictures, but the camera mode doesn't work at all. I upgraded the firmware to the latest version, but the problem remains. Any ideas???


Answers :

Possible broken spring mount in lens. This spring holds the focus lens. I had the same problem on an EX S600 and was able to fix it by taking the lens assembly out and taking it apart and making a spring mount out of a small piece of wire and glueing it in. This is not an easy job as everything is very tiny. It takes time and patience. Seems the camera tries to autofocus but can't because the spring is not connected. It then just shuts off.

When I turn the camera on I get the message "memory card error". The only button on the camera which then works is the menu button but it just brings up the screen and then the same error message.

My computer also fails to recognise the camera when I connect it via the usb port. Any bright ideas?
