Re: Lens will not extend

Normaly S7000 have a manufacturing designing defect of lense not extending. This happens due to broken gears in the lense movement assambly. The replacement of the broken gears will fix the problem

Lens on my S7000 doesn't retract when switched off - now permanently extended - and camera dead

This is going to require service / repair at the shop, not something you will be able to correct.

How can I fix the Zoom error on my Fujifinepix S7000


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.

Need Original Lens


I am sorry to say thatbthis is not possible. The s7000 is not an interchangeable lens SLR. Lokks like one I know but the lens is fixed.

Only chance is to get the current lens repaired.
Hope this helps

Dropped my Fuji S7000. Am I doomed?

The lens is probably jammed internally. Get an estimate from your local quality camera shop. Sometimes the problem is easy to repair and sometime you'll need a new lens assembly (may cost more than the camera.)

My Fuji S7000 wont focus when I use a wide angle lens adapter.

I've since found out (via a Fuji forum) that the camera MUST be set to Super Forced Macro for the lens to focus ..... which it now does!
