A500 Zoom Error

When I turn on my camera there is a message on the LCD screen saying zoom error. From there the camera will not take any photos though I can still look at photos that are in it's memory. Does it need to be taken to a service centre for repair or is there something I can do myself to reset it? Thank you.

Your lens assembly has become jammed due to impact or contamination. You can try GENTLY manipulating the extended lens using slight side to side pressure and twisting motions back and forth. Sometimes this will free a component which has jammed out of alignment. Be VERY careful you can easily damage the lens further if you do not use extreme caution. If this method is going to work it will take minimal force to free the components. If this does not work you will need to find a service center to take the camera apart and re-set the internal components in the proper alignment. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Zoom Error?


Dirt in the focus motor drive gears right behind the lens at the front.
It's a **** design (my opinion). The lens at the front moves in and out depending on your zoom level. It can come right out of the lens barrell at the front. So, if it can come out, dirt can get in. and it's a pig to clean out and reset. Bin it or sell for parts.

Zoom Error


If you are still under MFG warranty and bought it from Best Buy they will ship it to service most likely, If you have their service plan they will be able to ship it for service... this needs to be serviced by a professional repair place...
