Could the button be sticky (due to sticky fingers)? If so, try to pop the button out with a pocket knife or something similar and slim. When you get it out, take a q-tip and dip into some hot soapy water and run it around the button. Should take off the sticky stuff and might fix you. If not it could be a defect in the camera.

Hello and Welcome

The symptoms of this error is
  • After pressing the power button in capture mode, the lens would extend and a slight humming from what appeared to be the auto focus motor could be heard for about 5 seconds. When the motor stopped humming, the camera would beep and display E:61:00 in the LCD Screen.
  • Camera would extend the lens but not be able to focus on anything past 8 inches or so.
  • Zoom in and zoom out would not work.
  • Playback mode and the Setup mode was not affected.
To solve this
Put the camera about a half inch from a hard surface.
Let the lense go out and hit the surface and retract a little bit. Let it go out all the way when it tries the next time.
If that doesnt fix it, try this:
Turn it on and let the lense go out fully
See where the lens comes out of the camera? The little round crack that surrounds it? Wiggle the lense a bit and blow in there a bit. (Be sure not to blow on the lense!)

Now turn it off/on again, and it should be fixed

See the following video, It may also help you

I hope it will be Helpful for you.
Thanks and keep Using FixYa

I in stalled new battarys in Vtech kidszoom it came on 2 min later it switch off it won't stay on

Try with different band batteries. Most probably it is an issue with the Camera. The life of these type of Cameras are very shot.. Infact kids grow very faster.. Press the reset button, it it has.. If the issue persists with different batteries, it would be good if you for a local service to save the cost.

I have changed the batteries and pressed the reset button nut nothing please help

Make sure the batteries are good and having the Ah required. Now if there is no response from a reset it is for sure that the camera processor is not responding to any command and is possibily dead.
You will have to remove- the tough job- to get access and see if there are smaller issues like a line break... attempt only with proper tools.

Here are some steps to solve your issue:

1. Press the Reset Button with a paper clip. This should reset your camera and should wok fine..

If this does not solve the problem, please continue the following steps:

1. Please make sure the camera is OFF.
2. Interrupt the power supply by removing the batteries.
3. Let the camera sit for a few minutes without batteries, then replace the batteries and press the Reset Button again.
4. Turn the unit ON. The unit should now be ready to play again.
5. If the unit still does not work, replace the batteries with an entire set of new batteries.

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance
