Usually a camera only shuts down, when one of its sensors detects a dangerous situation. somewhere a voltage to high, or somewhere it is overheating. Or the lens is not moving free. With some camera's you can force a shut down, by only pressing the lens a little, or just touching the lens while zooming or focusing. Don't try this, because it can damage the lens system. If nothing off this all happened to your camera, perhaps you should ask a service centre. But please check yourself, when you are focusing or zooming, that you don't touch the lens barrel.
most cameras come with an option called macro,this setting is for close up shots.on your camera it needs to set at wide angle.when choosing the shooting mode move left or right and choose the icon of a flower.if you adjust the zoom, a zoom bar will appear at the top of the lcd.if you try to use a zoom not intended for macro shots the flower icon will gray out and the bar will appear yellow,if you take a picture with the yellow bar it will be blurry.if you zoom out a little until it stops you should be ok. if you use a flash in macro mode the images edges usually will darken.hope this helps.
I now have the exact same issue. When not zoomed or fully zoomed the exposure is correct, however when partially zoomed the aperture does not engage and stays fully open. So basically I cannot really use the zoom or the picture is over exposed. Note - actually about 2/3 mechanical zoom and on works, so I can use a bit of the zoom.
Use spot metering & focus when taking pictures of an object.
Set your camera to highest Megapixel setting, Only use max. optical zoom on the subject (do not use digital zoom) .U dont need to get close to object as you can edit/zoom/crop the picture using any photo software program afterwards .
try zooming in on a object and see it it get clearer. the problem is your zoom lens motor is stuck or malfunctioning. This is a very common problem with digital cameras. sometimes you can take compressed air and blow around the lens and clear the blockage or lightly tap the camera lens down with it off to free up the focus gear. if it does now work it then needs tobe serviced or repaired. I had the same model last week for the same problem. That lens had tobe replaced. but try that first and see if it helps.
The lens assembly on the Camedia and many other cameras has a special motor to facilitate the zooming. It sounds as if your motor is actually working but it's not engaging the gears to drive the zoom in and out. It could be a fractured gear somewhere in that drive system. I wouldn't recommend pulling one apart. They are a mongrel to put back together the right way.
Keep your eyes open on Ebay for your model with a busted LCD or fault not associated with the lens and do a complete lens assembly transplant. Something which is relatively easy to do as long as you take notes of where all the parts and screws go. If you get left with no more than 2 screws when you've finished, you've done well.
