Re: Zoom doesn't work

Digigtal Zoom is simply a method of cropping the image in the camera. The optical Zoon actuates the Lens This seems to have failed Check custpmer support for a repair option Not very hopeful I am afraid - New Camera may be best option

NIKON D3100 zoom problem

The D3100 doesn't have digital zoom capabilities. The zoom range depends on the lens you have fitted on. The 5.6 sounds like the aperture. The maximum aperture also depends on the lens.

The S3100 does have digital zoom capabilities. Is this the camera you're referring to? Or are you confusing the specs of the two cameras?

I am trying to uninstall Canon Zoom Browser EX 6.1.1, but Window program doesn't do, neither does the uninstall in Zoom Browser or CCCleaner.

If you've tried "add or remove programs" in the control panel and have had no success, try this. Go to "start", "search", and search for Canon Zoom Browser. Delete all entries that come up in the search.

Zoom did not operate normally,insert the battery again and turn camera on again Camera doesn't operate normally

Hi had this problem with my WB100. Zoom would come out then pop back in and say zoom nit not operate normally, please put new batteries in and try again or contact bla bla. What i did when the zoom popped out is i held onto it and didnt let it retract back and turned it back on. It worked after that so i guess the zoom must of been a little forced in when it was in use last in when turned on it wasnt fully going forward. Worked for me so worth a shot

I dropped the Z950 and the zoom is struck in.

The mechanism of your zoom motor is probably damaged caused by the impact. The best thing you can do is to send your digital camera to the nearest repair service center and have it checked.

Optical viewfinder zoom isn't working

no ideas on how you can get it working. There is I should think a connection adrift. Try the Konica Tech Support Team But be prepared for a zilch answer- I don't think a 'repair' will come into the equation
