Question about Fuji Finepix F50FD Digital Camera
The camera is about 7 months old and the lens will not retract nor will the camera take any pictures. I get a "focus error" code. The camera was not dropped or mistreated in any manner. Of course it is out of the 90 day warrenty and I am wondering if it is worth repairing. Thanks
SOURCE: zoom lens won't retract
Usually down to the lens block assy being faulty.Is the lens retracting and opening properly?.It usually turns out to be worn gears in the lens drive assy or the result of a fall.Either way will be expensive repair!My advise is check and see whether camera is covered by insurance for accidental knocks.,

Hit the lens (smack it on you're leg); that seems to be the solution..........
But try cleaning the lens and the AF assistent first!!

Unfortunately dropping this model, and the f40, 45, 47 fd models, is suicidal for the camera. The lens has an inner slide ring which other models do not have and this ring has three lugs to keep the lens from spinning when powered up and used. Unfortunately these lugs are also clips which hold the focus lens inplace. These are tiny. hard to repair
