    Smile Casio Lens Error

    I've been repairing CASIO Cameras for many years and have literally repaired a thousand cameras as a CASIO Authorized Warranty Service Tech.
    The problem you're experiencing is somewhat common. The lens unit can become damaged if it's opened while in your pocket, or in a case etc. This usually happens without the user's knowledge and appears to be a mysterious development. Basically, what happens is the power button gets pressed and the lens attempts to extend, then the lens gets jammed and the servo motors smoke.
    Fortunately this problem is correctable by replacing the lens unit. The lens unit is available from CASIO but I don't suggest you replace it yourself unless you are an experienced electronics technician.
    If you'd like to have it repaired inexpensively, please visit CasioRepairs.com.
    Thanks,
    Tim

    Digital photography is the result of great electronics!

    I've noticed several "lens error" problems reported in the Casio forums of this and other digital camera review sites. Just how "common" are these lens errors with Casio digital cameras?

    I recently purchased a Casio EX-Z750. Love the features, love the photos. I received "Lens Error" after about 80 shots. 50 of them were test shots taken immediately after opening the package. Looks like I will have to return the camera or send it off for repair. Major inconvenience! I've had a Canon S110 for 4 years with not a single problem.

    I am another one of these victims, and the 'lens error' problem happened one fine morning after having had the camera for 8 months. For me it was even worse that the LCD screen cracked soon after that, and Casio Service department quoted roughly the price of the camera to have it repaired. I did it myself for half the pirce. I guess misterMe is right that you have to know how to use a soldering iron and posess a very small screwdriver, although it is no big deal really as the internals of this camera are very straight forward. I would say it is worth doing as the rest of this camera is excellent. If you are interested in the details, I have documented it here
