Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z120 Digital Camera

2 Answers

My Casio ExilimEX-Z120 shows 'Low Battery' whenever it is turned on to take a picture and automatically turns off. This happens with fresh batteries. It is fine when I just use the the picture review button to view pictures but as soon as I choose to take a picture it will turn off. Any ideas??

It happens because some alkaline batteries just don't have the initial surge of power output required to drive all the little motors, the display and so on.

You need lithium batteries, like the 8x Ultimate Lithium.
They are expensive initially, but on average are more economical than the cheaper stuff.

I've tested them on my Kodak Z712 IS, and any owner of this camera knows what I'm talking about.

The best -and cheapest- solution I found, is the rechargeable Li-Ion batteries.
I got 2 batteries and one charger. I'm using one battery, while the other one is charging.

I had the same problem. The camera "Play" function worked fine, so I could view pictures on the screen, but when switching to camera function I immediately got the "Battery is low" message and the camera would shut down, even with brand new batteries.
I fixed this my adding a wad of aluminium foil to the exposed ends of the batteries to make the battery compartment door close more tightly. The camera function srated working again immediately.
If you are sceptical then believe me, I was sceptical, too, but it genuinely worked first time.

My casio ex-z80a turns off automatically


This is pretty obvious but it bears asking, Have you checked your batteries? If the batteries are low, digitals will shut down. Check your battery connections to make sure that all are making good contact. You may need to adjust them by bending slightly.
If this doesn't help, try a default reset. take the battery out and if there's a memory battery, take that out too let it sit for a bit and then reinstall.
Hope this help get you back running.

It doesn't matter to the camera what software you have on your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

On mine, the battery terminal on the inside of the battery case is broken, by opening and shutting the cover a few times until it contacts properly it is normally OK. Anyone know where I can buy a new contact plate in theUK?
