Question about Fuji DX-5 Digital Camera
ha right now i have the same problem and like everyone else i havent dropped it or damaged it.
Fuji being awesome as they are wont cover this in warranty and its about $230 + to get it fixed and reportedly comes back with more errors than before
so how about you try what i'm about to do and smash it with a hammer, in future try canon or something else.
I am now a photographer without a camera for two months my camera is barely a yr old.
Thank you fuji!!!

After the basics, try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

This is just a suggestion, as I am not an expert.A couple of years ago I had a problem with my older, Fuji Finepix camera related to the computer downloads/programming and I found Fujifinepix web site. I sent them an email and they responded and did not charge anything. Could try that..

You will have to disassemble the unit. 2 screws on 1 side and 1 on the other and 2 on the bottom, pop the back off, being careful of the 2 ribbon cables attached to the rear and unock these cables and remove. 3 screws holding the top circuit board (remove the eye piece first and unplug the 2 cables attached to it) carefully unplug all cables attached to this top board and unscrew and remove (there is one on the bottom of the board that you must flip to unlatch. After you remove that board there is the power board... BE CAREFUL!!! The flash capacitor (the black tube looking unit on the bottom of this board) stores chrge and you WILL feel it if you touch the terminals... it they touch metal you will see fireworks so be careful. unplug the single red and black wire plug and unscrew the 3 screws here You do not have to remove the white plug with the 4 or 5 wires because you can just flip the board over out of the uni.. BE CAREFUL!!. unscrew the 2 silver screws securing the metal plate underneath and remove this plate. now remove the single screw left and pull out the lens assem. Here check 2 places... 1 is he zoom screw (it is behind the long silver panel) and also the focus screw (behind the shorter metal panel. Do one at a time. remove the screws from one of them and carefully lift off the motor plate. for he zoom line to metal ring on the screw into the groove of the lens (Shaped like a V) carefully screw the screws back in bu d ni tighten to tight, leave a LITTLE slack. (1/8 turn from tight). Now for the focus screw, remove the cover and align the ring to encase the top of the V The ring is shaped like < the lens is a > so just allow the rinng on the screw to "pinch" the top of the lens groove. secure like you did the other plate (dont forget to back out 1/8 of a turn) reassemble the opposite of disassembly and you are done... it look hard but it is actually pretty easy... any uestions email me at email@example.com
