Re: Zoom Error

We have contacted Fujifilm about this problem and they said they'd charge us over $100 US to fix it. There is another thread on this subject that gives you the best shot at repairing it, though I'm not sure anyone not qualified should, I'm going to try it because it'd be cheaper to buy a new one than send it in.

Re: Zoom Error

Hi, im not an expert, to say the least, but in the few times I ran into this problem, the camera owners had to replace it. unfortunatly, this is not a very rare issue with fuji's digital cameras, so they are probobly aware of it. I dont know if they will fix it for free, but in my opinion it worths a shot.

Why does my Panasonic DMCFZ28 take pictures when I push the zoom lever?

I suspect the snap key is shot circuited, use contact cleaner spray in the click button often press it to get ride of possible carbon shot circuit between the switch. in some cases the processor will malfunction, and if moisture or water particles gone inside, you must open the cam and clean the motherboard thoroughly with PCB cleaning agent.

How to zoom to shoot sa picture

While in the shooting mode, you can use the zoom button on the back of the camera. If that does not work, when you press it. The camera is simply defect.
To zoom in on a picture you have to open it on a computer to tablet. I don't think the camera will zoom in on the camera. The pictures you see on the camera, only are "thumbnails" Very small pictures the display can show, but not enough information to enlarge.

Olympus xD-Picture Card "Card Error"

First things first - need to make sure that the card is making proper electrical contact with the camera. Have a look at the contacts at the edge of the card and make sure they are spotlessly clean - even a fingerprint may cause problems.

Also, make sure the contacts in the camera have nothing causing a contact problem, and see if this resolves the issue.

Zooming in.

Your camera jumped out of gear. Open the front metal cover and disassemble all arm working with the main motor gear and try to reposition the red dot on the big gear with the small gear side by side. Presto now your camera is aligned. Place all arms back in order to your new got your self a working camera. D: 3403 3404 mean error = some thing is block your lense and stopping the motored gear. For future referance don't drop the camera agian, next time it might be a expensive fix next time around.
