Having problems with your Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z850 Digital Camera ?

Talk to EX-Z850 via USB??

\015 I have an EX-Z850 given to me because the LCD screen is broken. \302\240It takes pictures/movies fine, but I can't change STUFF (like date, mode ....) without the screen.\015\012Can I talk to it over the USB? \302\240If the OS is Linux, I can get my head around that. \302\240As it stands, it's a wonderful, but badly crippled tool.\015\012Do you guys have a schematic?\015\012I have a perfectly good Z750, so I'm not at the end of my tether, but it's a shame to have the 850 sitting around. \302\240Maybe it's a webcam waiting to be born. \302\240It's got all the right parts.\015\012\015\[email protected]\015

Thanks, that's known solution for LCD replacement, but the problem is "How to talk to Z850 via USB?"

I think it must be a trick to connect this cam like a webcamera.


Another option is to replace the screen yourself. I just crack my screen on my Z850 and will attempt to replace the screen myself. You can purchase a replacement screen on ebay for about $60. Checkout http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVMzSvI2G-w for video of some guy replacing the screen. Looks easy enough.

Fuji/USB Hi folks, Could any of you folk tell me if the Fuji cam will talk to Windows95 via the USB cable direct from the camera, or do I need to download via a card reader? Some chain stores say it will others say it will not! Many thanks.

The CF card in the wife's S9500 has ceased to be read via the USB cable in both Windows XP and Linux (both systems saw the camera before as an external drive). I cannot think of anything I have done to cause this. The card has integrity and we managed to get the 400+ photos off onto CD's via a PC in the local photo shop. I have re-formated the card and tried every setting I can find on the camera but..... no connection via USB seen.... can anyone help here please? Thanks - Peter


Since the card seems to be working (you can take pictures and view them on the screen afterwards) the problem must be with the USB. I assume Linux and XP is on 2 different computers? If, not, it could also an electrical error with the USB ports. ... Fuji FinePix S9500 Zoom Digital Camera

BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE Received a "Vivitar T328" camera yesterday. Inserted the supplied battery and a new memory card into the camera and connected the camera via "USB" cable to the supplied charger. Left the unit plugged in over night. The battery did not charge. This morning plugged the camera into a lap top computer using the supplied "USB" cable. Checked after 5 hours and found that the battery still does not seem to accept the charge. What am I doing wrong?

I have a Casio EZ-Z1050 10.1 megapixel digital camera and am very pleased with it. I use a 2Gb memory chip with it, however, some snaps have gotten into the cameras on board memory and I cannot seem to delete them. If I look via the camera it displays a No files message but if I download via USB all the pictures I don't want keep re-appearing. Advice as to how to delete from on the camera's on board memory would be very gratefully received. Thank you. Ron Bernstein.

Jazz DV-179 Hi there, My Jazz DV179 camcorder will not turn on. I've plugged the usb into computer and camera and the red light flashes a couple of times and then stays solid red. This would seem to indicate that it is charged. But it won't turn on. Can you please advise? Also, we lost the battery charger that plugs into AC outlet. Assuming we can just charge it by plugging it into computer via USB? Where would we find an AC battery charger for it?
