Casio EX-Z50 digital camera - will not 'start' i.e. lens will not extend

\015 Casio EX-Z50 camera will not turn on - i.e. the lens will not extend - I have very carefully disassembled it (i.e. removed fromt and back metal enclosures) and see no physical damage internally and the 'gear train' for the lens mechanism seems to bi intact and not bound; however, when it is turned on I do hear a moor try to start it seems and a green LED flashes and it beeps - but nothing is displayed - I can push the on button and with the MENU button depressed and the backlight turns on and the display shows VER 1.00 and then it goes away - \015\012\015\012Also can't get it to mount under XP from the cradle - \015\012\015\012I wan to add that there is a 'possibility' that the camera was exposed to very strongg magnetic field - a rare earth magnet that my son uses in his large salt-water aquarium to move an algae removing magnetic pad on the inside of the aquarium came in contact with the camera when I accidently had it in my pocket and I put the magnet in the same pocket while servicing a pump - \015\012\015\012I would like to FLASH the BIOS of the camera if I can to re-instal the software if it is corrupt - although I suppose nothing would show in the display i.e. the MENU button held at turn on and the backlight and VER 1.00 displayed, but it does nothing else and will not mount as a device under XP.\015\012\015\012It is such a nice camera I want to get it working if possible - takes great photos - and is a great backup to my Nikon DSLRs \015\012\015\012any thoughts?\015\012\015\012Oh by the way no damage was done to lens or lens tube - last time it was turned off it withdrew fine and the last photos taken at that time are on the memory card and tehy are fine - so no reason to think physical damage - only thing I do notice is that the rectangular lens opening seems to be 'rotated' ~2 to 3 degrees or so from parallel with the bottom surface of the camera itself - had not noticed if this was always the case - as it is my son's camera - also the protective shutters open easily if spread apart and lens looks normal and intact under these shutters or lens protector leafs.\015\012\015\012Thanks hope you can help - also no water or sticky stuff damage, etc. just a normal shut down last time used and then the next time I went to use it it will not turn on - the exposure to the magnet was before the last tiem it was used but I just thought I would mention it just in case it could have caused any proplems - \015\012\015\012Is there a 'reset' process I oculd go through?\015

Focusing Problem I have a Casio Exilim 10.1 Mega Pixel Digital Camera EX-s10 and I have had it for a little over a year now.

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

My Pentax Optio S10 digital camera is giving me problems. Initially the lens would not extend fully and would then immediately retract and the camera would then turn itself off. After cleaning the extended lens barrel each time it extended, I found it would open further each time. It nows extends fully, but still retracts immediately thereafter. At the time the screen shows the green Optio screen for a split second and then shows an out of focus shot of whatever the camera is pointing at, bef

Lens problem Hi. I have an Olympus FE-190 digital camera. not sure what happened, but now there is a problem with the lens. when i turn on the camera, the lens extends, retracts, several times (trying to find "home" I think). Image on the display screen is blurry. it WILL take a very blurry picture. there is a faint 'ratcheting" sound when the lens is fully extended. is there a way to 're-set" or calibrate the lens extension setting or focus? thanks very much for your assistance.

I have an Akai digital camera model DC6371. On start up the lens pops out and screen lights up, but then the screen closes down and (often) the lens remains out even when the camera has been turned off. On trying to operate it again today, the green light indicates the camera is on for a few seconds and the screen lights up momentarily, but the lens doesn't pop out and the camera closes down again.


Looks like you have the notorious lens stuck problem. Since you said it pops out occasionally but does not go in, it is probably a faulty motor or some kind of mechanical obstruction. A qualified camera should be able to fix this for you but I recomm ... Akai DC6371 Digital Camera

I took my camera to the beach, took a picture and put it back in my bag. I then took the camera back out to take another picture the lens extended but then it went back in again it went to go back out but stopped and a loud beeping noise started and a message saying lens error restart camera. I don't know how to restart the camera and if that means turning it of then on it still doesn't work. What can I do now?

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. The lens goes out and then back to the position it is stuck in. I don't know what to do to fix it or where to take it. I have an Casio Exilim EX-S10. It's an expensive camera, so I'm hopeful it can be fixed.
