Question about Fuji FinePix S3000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lense Issue When I turn on the camera the lense started to move out and then got stuck. How when you turn it on it just trys to adjust the lense but again it is stuck. I am required to remove the batteries to get it to shut off. I was going ot open the case but three of the screws requires a nice special allen wrench, but guess what, they did not provide it. Any ideas where I can score one?

Re: Lense Issue

Does the screw you need to remove look like a triangle with 3 points? if it does i had the same problem! went to all kinds of repair stores looking for one, turns out that is a manufacturer only tool so that we cant repair them and we have to have them service it!!!! SOLUTION: Goto a hardware store and go to the screw driver aisle what you are looking for is basically a 3 point triangle screwdriver bit but it has to be a very sharp bit tho if not it will just strip the screws ..but needless to say it could be some work! i fought with one of the screws for about 30 minutes to get it broken loose enough to twist it out with plyers...ok well good luck!

The camera lense is stuck open and not will close

Hi! Better check it with qualified technecian. It might damage everything if you force it. The lense broke inside. It needs to be replaced or adjust the screw to lossen so that lens will go back to its original position.
Please feel free to comment.

Turns on but turns right back off

It might be a lense problem. Dirt and things get stuck in the lense real easily. hold the lense while you tuen it on and when it turns off hold the lens out.. wiggle it gently while turning it upside down... tap it gently upside down.... or blow int he lens to try and get the dirt disloged.

My camera lense is stuck and my camera wont turn on

hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.

thank u
rate me!!!

My sony camera displays Turn camera off and on again

I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber_Shot. Here is what I did and the problem was fixed. While I turned the camera off, I pressed down the lense very softly (some up and down motion). After a couple of times, the lense retracted almost completely. Then I pressed a little harder until the lense retracted 100% as normal times. I turned it on everything was back to normal. If the lense does not have mechanical problem, you should be able to do what I did.
If there is no mechanical problem, most likly some dirt got on the sides of the lense while it was open. Try keep it very clean always.

Good luck;

My camera lens won't open and is stuck in one place.

(I'm not sure this is a 'Solution' or not, so please don't 'ding' me if you find this of no use)

I had a similar problem with a Fuji E550. The power button on the camera was pressed while it was INSIDE the carrying case and the lense jammed agaist the inside of the case. It would not move and the camera would not function until this was cleared.

A camera 'expert' suggested that I twist the lense to it's fully extended position while the camera is turned off. I must say it did grind a bit while I did this and left me feeling a bit queezy.

But, once I turned the camera on the lense returned to it's normal 'start' position, closed once I powered off the camera, and has worked ever since.

If you aren't comfortable doing this (and I wouldn't blame you if that were the case) you'll need to take it into a camera shop for repair.

Good Luck.

Pentax optio s6

This is exactly how my problem started. Then after repeated attempts to turn it on or off the lense actually stuck in the on position. After GENTLY forcing it in the off position, it began turning on and would immediately turn back off. After reading every problem posted that had to do with the lense I figured that the lense had somehow worked it's way of the "track or gear" that moves it in and out. I don't recommend this solution unless you figure that the cost of having it repaired proffesionally would be more than to replace the camera (I am a trial and error type of repair person). On my camera, also an S6, when the lense came forward and began to retract, I GENTLY held the lense in place for just a second. I repeated this probably four or five times until it "worked itself" back into the proper position. It does make the clicking noise while doing this which made me a bit nervous but it worked. The camera actually even seems to be focusing better which leads me to believe that possibly it hadn't been quite right for a while. AGAIN... you have to decide if the cost of proffessional repair is worth it to you. I am not a pro but this worked GREAT for me. Hope it helps.
