Having problems with your Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z80 Digital Camera ?

The camera pwers up but only comes on for about 20 seconds then it shuts off. When it shuts down the lens stays out. My daughter dropped it and it has a small dent on the side.


Answers :

Your\015\012problem\015\012may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery\015\012contacts inside the camera which can\015\012prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.\015\012Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full\015\012charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This\015\012cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the\015\012camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

The camera was dropped while the lens was open. The camera now only opens about half an inch out and then shuts on itself. When it shuts it powers down and will not stay on. I am assuming that the motor is the problem, if so is it fixable? How would I fix it? How much would that cost?
