    I have the same problem, it starts when I disconnect the camera from my PC wrong. So the problem may be software, because the camera was in perfect condition before that.

Camera shuts down when i use the zoom.easy share c180

Using the zoom requires the motor which pulls more power than the camera when idle. If the battery is close to exhausted it will shut the camera off when you zoom. If this isn't the case your zoom may be stuck and the camera shuts down to prevent damage.

The camera turns off everytime I use the zoom button

Battery power could be getting low, and the camera shuts off because there is too much of a load on the camera when the zoom gear is operated.

Turns on then shuts down automatically

As long as the battery is fine - try taking out the memory card and turning it on maybe? Sorry, but the lens are probably broken. Does it give an error message?

My camera shuts off when I my zoom is nearly halfway through

Make sure your batter is fully charged, and is not bad. This kind of reaction can happen with a weak battery or partly charged.
If that is not it, then the camera needs repair.

Zoom out and it shuts down

Don't think you'll have to send it in for repair. How old is your battery? Keep in mind that it isn't meant to last for more than a year or two, regardless of how often it is used. A camera will automatically shut down if its battery power is getting low. This usually occurs when the camera is doing power intensive actions, such as zooming (it uses a motor). Anyways, Amazon has some generic options for you if your battery may be over-the-hill:

Lens keeps getting stuck/needs a good tug to zoom past 25 HELP!

Hi Rachael_amor, If the lens will not zoom on the camera will it off the camera? If not then it has some grit, dirt, and the like in the lens. You could attempt to vacuum around the zoom however, I suspect it will need to go in to Nikon. That lens is not well weather sealed, it is a inexpensive consumer lens.

Digital zoom doesn't work

Wet has affected the circuitry and could be progressive-[in which case there will be no repair option] best let the camera dry out in a warm place. Take batteries out and let it dry. You could help it along by putting the camera in a snap shut poly-bag with some rice or salt in a cloth/tissue tie to absorb any moisture. As regard the Digital zoom- strict speaking it has no value -it is simply magnifying the centre of the recorded image. rely on the optical zoom and print up bigger section for better clarity.

Camera powers up but then shuts down

Check out this similar post -,p241282/Ricoh-Digital-Cameras.aspx In your case though, I would try to turn it on with playback mode selected on startup, to prevent the zoom from extending. This way you will know if the problem is connected to the zoom, or other mechanisms. In any case, if it's not a battery/battery door/card problem, you'll need to send it for repair, or find a shop that can handle it, and it's rarely a cheap repair. Good luck

Super Zoom

In addition to the optical zoom, this camera is equipped with a super zoom and digital zoom for taking telephoto and wide-angle shots. The super zoom and digital zoom cannot be used at the same time. Super zoom is used to extend the optical zoom up to 14× magnification. However, the resolution is automatically fixed at 1600 ×1200. Digital Zoom is used to extend the maximum optical zoom to approximately 40x. However, pictures taken with the digital zoom may appear grainy. Camera shake is likely to occur at these higher magnifications, please see “camera shake” question for further details on this.
