Question about Fuji FinePix A820 Digital Camera
Had the same problem today with my daughter's Fuji A820 displaying "Zoom Error" at switch on with the lens remaining in the body of the camera and not extending.
I am told this has occured once before while still under warranty and after 2 months at the repair centre.
Before dismantling it I thought I would get a few ideas from this site, and what worked for me was to press the ON button, and at the same time smacking the camera VERY solidly into the palm of my free hand similar to cleaning out a mouth organ. The lens came out immediately and continued to work until I demonstrated to my daughter the corrective action I took ( Gave it another good smacking) where-upon it stopped working again. Another dose of the same medicine corrected it again,
My daughter indicates she has never dropped the camera but could well have given it a good jolting whilst it was in her handbag which she tends to throw on the front seat of her car when getting into it to drive somewhere. This may be the cause of the malfunction in the first place.
Hope this of some help to anyone grasping at things to try.
