Question about Fuji FinePix Z3 Digital Camera

Getting a zoom Error message!!!

Everytime I turn on my Camera it starts to make a beeping sound and then I'll get the "Zoom Error" message on the screen. I am not able to take pictures. The only thing it lets me do is view the pictures I have already taken.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem or how it could have happened?!

Thanks everyone.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Lens error / Battery expire.
1. Use a new battery will fully charged and then use it. Hope you get good result.

2. Some time lens zooming gear getting damaged by dust. if that gear is scrached by dust then your lens can't work and it will stucked. Your camera automatically turn off.

Of those 2 85% chance of poor/ long time used Battery & 15% chance of lens zooming gear damaged.

My camera has a message saying 'zoom error' when I press the on button- what should I do?


Well, my camera said the same thing and when i tried to zoom in or out it would zoom out but then it would zoom out all on its own and beep. So i zoomed in but grabbed the lens so it could not zoom back out on its own. Now my camera is fine. Actually believe it or not I literally fixed my camera 2 minutes ago and I found your question because I was trying to find an answer to mine. So, it worked for me haha

My camera sony smart zoom dsc-p43. everytime i


Hi there
First of all check to make sure the cards write protect is off, take the card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .
Pop it back in the camera and try to format the card again, if you get the same error message again there could be a chance the card is damaged.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Lens keeps getting stuck/needs a good tug to zoom past 25 HELP!


Hi Rachael_amor, If the lens will not zoom on the camera will it off the camera? If not then it has some grit, dirt, and the like in the lens. You could attempt to vacuum around the zoom however, I suspect it will need to go in to Nikon. That lens is not well weather sealed, it is a inexpensive consumer lens.
