Using Calculator photos in my article?

hi guys
I am trying to publish a paper and finally it got a moderate revision, but there is a little problem :
after submitting the revisions which wasn't much, I received an email from the publisher saying "We notice that you may have used previously published material in your article" , the paper was about using some technique i created using Calculators to solve a complicated equation, i download a Casio calculator app and used screen shots from it for the instructions?
is that a copyright violation, I don't understand how is that is a previously published material ?
the publisher need a "request for permission" but i don't know how to get one ? i mean should i contact Casio company?
- would it be possible to replace all the Casio calculator photos on my article with the screens only or maybe a sketch diagram using Photoshop? and resubmit the article?
