    My ex-z850 zoom control just stopped working - took it back to camera shop & was told must be returned to Casio for repair & probably was a "loose wire". Will take 4 weeks or so to get camera back. Disappointing in that the camera is less than a year old & has been gently used.

You have to send it in to repairs. You're lucky that the lens even still comes out.

JZ300 Autofocus not working


Beyond sand getting in, the lens may have been damaged from the impact if it fell on the lens while extended. It may need to be serviced by a technician.

Hi Hedonismious,

If the camera is under warranty the best option would be to get it repaired for free via the service center.

Either they will repair it or replace it.

From the error code , it seems to be the zoom lens malfunctioning which you cannot repair by yourself and the error in itself means that you need to get in touch with the service center.
It's a chip level fault or a firmware fault which SONY authorized center can deal with.

What you need to do , i contact the service center and just inform them about the error code that you are receiving , and they will come to know as to what is the problem and direct you to appropriate department and method to get this problem resolved

I would also like to caution you , that you should not attempt anything on your own in this situation because it may result in further damage to your camcorder.

Hope this helps ...:) Let me know in case you have any queries.

Silver lens shroud fell off and now the lens wont extend out and the display is reading"lens error"


Hi,

As you have dropped your camera due to that lens barrel (focusing ring) is not able extend, Your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring at Service Center but you can try these solution.


  • What you can try to do is spray some compressed AIR into the lens to try to free up any sand or dust that may have worked its way in. If that doesn't help, you can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.

or.......
  • You can try to turn camera ON at the table (facing it to the ceiling), don't put camera down face to the floor when opening.
Good luck and have a nice day.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Good day,

This tip will explain a few methods on how to try and fix your lens if it is stuck or you get a lens error on your screen.

Please note that all these methods are used at the users own risk and that I can not be held responsible for any damages or losses that occur while trying these methods.

1. If your camera is still under warranty, send your camera to the manufacturer to be replaced or fixed professionally.

2. If your camera is out of warranty try these methods.

  • Make sure your batteries are fully charged.
  • Remove the batteries for 10min. Replace the batteries and see if the problem persists.
  • Try compressed air. This method can be useful if there are any sand or any other object stuck in the lens motors. Use compressed air with a fine tip. Direct the air between the camera body and lens and move in a circular motion around the lens to complete a full rotation.
  • You can also try to tap the padded USB cover firmly on a flat surface like a table. This is sometimes a surprisingly effective method.
  • The last method is to try and force the lens. Turn of your camera and place it on its back on a flat surface. Look at the spacing between the lens and the body and see if the gap is consistent all the way around the lens. If the gap is not even it is likely that the camera fell while the lens was extended. Now VERY GENTLY push down on the lens were the gap is the biggest until you her a "click". This will indicate that the lens is back in place. Try powering back on.
  • If the lens does not extend or it extend and retracts turn of the camera. Hold the camera in your one hand and with the other hand turn the one part of the lens in a circular motion. Rotate both sections of the lens until you hear a "click". This will indicate that the lens popped back in place. Power the camera back on.
  • The last method you can use is to turn the lens while powering on the camera until you hear a "click". Power the camera of and back on to see if it works.
If any of the methods listed above failed to work for your lens problem it would be wise to take it on to a professional to get your camera repaired.

Thanks for taking the time to read my tip and feel free to let me know if it was of any help.

Regards

My camera fell down and now the len doesn`t come out properly can it be fixed


My friend had that hapin, the lens got stuck and the camera wouldn't turn on. I first asked if she still had warrenty on it. When she told me the warrenty was probebly long over, we concluded that there would be nothing to lose by try ing to fix it.

I carefully forced the zoom back by hand, after that it worked fine again.

Zoom Error


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

If the camera fell on it's lens it is probably jammed. Try to find something small, strong and thin, possibly a hairpin and slide it into the barrel while gently trying to force it outwards immediately after switching it on. When it does extend, try to clean or blow out any grit that may be inside the mechanism. The batteries are hot as your camera does not switch off and may be remain on for hours

It looks like a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse
