Customer Question

My Casio Exilim EX-S200 camera is stuck in "night" mode. I have tried all the menu options to get the camera to return to regular/daytime mode. What do I do to fix this problem?

Hello, my name is***** be happy to assist you.
Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.
- Are you talking about Night Scene option in camera?
Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am not talking about the "best mode" option. Rather, there is capital letter "N" next to the resolution icon ("6M"), and the display screen is all black.

I should have said that I am not talking about the "best shot" option.

Please type something, even just a short sentence, so that I know that you are still online.

I'm sorry, I couldn't locate the N or 6M icons on display list of camera so let me send the question back to open list so others can have a look.
Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
If a person shifts the camera into the mode where the various functions and features can be manipulated, the very first feature listed reflects the resolution of images to be made. The resolution choices are 14M, 3:2, 16:9, 10M, 6M, 3M, and VGA. (And each choice also corresponds to a number combination, as in 4320 x 2880.) But on my camera right now there is the letter "N" added just after these choices. The display screen is all black. The camera takes only all-black non-pictures.

Hello,
I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
If the camera is only taking all-black non-pictures, then it is likely that the sensor has failed and it will need to be replaced.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
So, in other words, the camera is broken?
Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.
It has a fault that can be repaired, yes.
