FUJIFILM FinePix S1600 digital camera. The lens fell out. How do I get it back in?

There is a locking ring that goes in front of the lens. Problem is when you put the lens back in, there was nitrogen in-between the the lens. Its there to keep anything growing in there. I worked on optics in the Army.

My Fujifilm A900 wont turn on. I press the power button and the lens comes out ever so slightly then goes back in. It also wont go into disk mode or view mode.

I also have this problem - it started when I put some Lithium batteries in (AAs). Whilst I was looking in the A900 handbook it said "do not put Lithium batteris in it" :(

I thought those batteries where for these type of battery eating devices.

Summary: put Lithium batteries in never worked again!!

it was only a week old too!!

How do I fix the Zoom Error for Fuji Finepix F47fd? I can't even extend the lens fully like what previous posts stated

Hi Jasmine,

With fresh batteries inserted in your camera, try to do this little trick:

1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.

2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.

Chances are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.

Hope this helps.

Fujifilm finepix a820 zoom error ... i turn the camera on and it wont focus... message on lcd screen is zoom error. it will not take picture and when i turn it off agan the zoom bit wont go back inside

    This problem is related to the malfunctioning of zoom motor, Two possibilities are there,
1- If company provides technical help on component leve in your regionl then zoom motor may replace.
2- If component level support is not available then LENS ASSEMBLY must be replaced.
   Contact your nearest fuji service centre or contact any expert nearby for the specific part replacement.
    Thanks for using fixya.

Fujifilm A345 keeps saying zoom error lens wont open and when i press shutter button it makes a short buzzing sound then zoom error comes up help

I recently came into this camera and after a day of testing it, it's doing the same thing. My work around is this. When it's on I press the zoom function and the lens then pops out. Then after it's out, I remove the batteries while it's still on. Put the batteries back in, and power it on (lens will be popped out) and then it starts working. I only paid $7 for it at a good will. So I was taking a chance it worked somewhat. This may work for you temporarily. Not sure how long this one will last.

Had the same problem today with my daughter's Fuji A820 displaying "Zoom Error" at switch on with the lens remaining in the body of the camera and not extending.

I am told this has occured once before while still under warranty and after 2 months at the repair centre.

Before dismantling it I thought I would get a few ideas from this site, and what worked for me was to press the ON button, and at the same time smacking the camera VERY solidly into the palm of my free hand similar to cleaning out a mouth organ. The lens came out immediately and continued to work until I demonstrated to my daughter the corrective action I took ( Gave it another good smacking) where-upon it stopped working again.  Another dose of the same medicine corrected it again,

My daughter indicates she has never dropped the camera but could well have given it a good jolting whilst it was in her handbag which she tends to throw on the front seat of her car when getting into it to drive somewhere. This may be the cause of the malfunction in the first place.

Hope this of some help to anyone grasping at things to try.
