I have a zooming problem on my Olympus Camedia C-700 Ultra, can you help?

It sounds like some part of the power zoom mechanism has failed. It could be repairable but with the age of the camera I doubt it would be worth it- something else may fail and a newer camera would also provide improved image quality.

Zoom doesn't work- screen shows zoom error message

Zoom and/or lens errors, they're common, and bad news. This is such a common problem that someone has written a blog just addressing this one error. You can read it here - it describes it far more completely than I ever could!

When I turn on my camera it says zoom error & turns off.

The problem you are describing is a problem with something in the lens assembly. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if outside of the one year factory warranty period. The cost is $144.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Zoom error

when the lens comes out, gently pull it as far as it will go, wiggle it a bit and it should right itself. just tried it with mine and it's sorted.

Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).
