Lens issue with my Casio EX-Z50

\015 Hi. I have akmost had it with my Casio EX-Z50 camera! I guess I'll start from the begining! So I first purchased my camera on December 15, 2005. ( about a year ago) When I first got it, I loved it... then about a month or two later, the flsh stopped working. So about another month or two later, after trying to figure out what the problem was, I decided to just send it in to Casio! So I finally got it back, working properly, when 2 weeks later, the lens stopped working! Now I have to admit,it was part my fault! You see, I was walking with my friends outside and I dropped it like 2-3 times but after that the only problem was not that it wouldnt turn on,but the lens would extend slowly! So 2 weeks later, (which is now), I go to use it and the only thing that happens is I see a little flicker of a green light by the veiw finder and a little sound of the engine, trying to get the lens out probley, and then... nothing happens. Please help me with this because I'm about to throw it against the wall!\015\012\015\012P.S. My 1 year warrenty just ended and from what I heard, without warrenty, Casio will at least charge me $140.00!\015

I don't believe a "lens error" can be fixed at home. That is something that is going to have to be sent in.\015\012\015\012Sometimes if repairing the camera costs more than what it's worth Casio will offer you a trade up to a different model.\015\012\015\012Call the repairs dept and ask them about that program. Their number is 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 1.

Lens Problem Hello, I'm Kento from the states. I purchased the CASIO EX-Z700 series. However, I accidentally dropped the camera when the camera was on and the lens was extended. It makes a grating sound, and the monitor screen said "Lens error". Now, the camera is turned off with its lens extended. When I see the lens from the top, the lens position is more concentrated to the right, and the gaps between each lens is bigger on the left hand side of the lens. I sincerely hope this would help y

Aloha, My Lumix DMC-TZ3 is having issues. When I turn it on it is extremely dark. It's almost as if the camera is only registering one side of the color spectrum. Even the pictures that are taken come out dark, so I'm guessing it's a lens problem. Not sure how it happened, because the camera was not dropped or treated badly anytime recently. The day before it started going wonky, the pictures and camera were fine. Could this be a lens issue or something internal. Is there a reset button to resto

Lens Error I recently had a problem with my Casio QV-R4... every time I'd turn it on, the lens would retract and I'd get a "LENS ERROR" message on the screen. I talked to customer support and they told me that Installing the new version of their firmware, v1.01 would fix this problem. I've since installed the new firmware version, but I am still receiving the lens error. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it? Please help!!!


As solutions 1 & 2 indicate, lubing the gears works!! This is a great camera, so I hope all of the QV-R4 owners try this. I may become a maintenance item for the camera.\015\012 \015\012I have a few a ... Casio QV-R4 Digital Camera

All of a sudden every picture I take with the 55-200 zoom lens is blurry and slightly out of focus. Pictures with the 18-55 lens are still sharp. I have been using that 55-200 lens for years for sports shots, and have never had any problem. I get the same blurriness shooting in both the auto sports setting and in shutter priority. It is a brand new issue. Could it be the AF servos starting to go in the lens, or am I doing something stupid?


Simplest answer is that you may have accidentally flipped the focus switch (A/M) on the lens to M. This turns off autofocus for that lens (which you might need to do if autofocus just can't resolve the image). Try turning it back to A.Ano ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
