Try these:
1) Make sure the lens cap is off. When the camera fires up, if it feels any resistance, it will stop zooming and tell you "zoom error"
2) Recharge or fit new batteries. Use 2700 power if you can get them.
3)Is there a bit of dirt between the zoom part and the camera body? I had this problem after my camera had been in my overcoat pocket. I cleared it out with a stiff artist's brush. Do NOT use WD 40 or similar, as I found to my cost on another camera. It eventually seeped through to the works and made all the pics cloudy!
4) Hold the camera body in one hand and gently wiggle the zoom part from side to side and up to down.You will hear a quiet click in the mechanism.
I have used my S1000fd lots now, and the initial "zoom error" problems have stopped.
It's a fine little camera, I especially like the 12x zoom and the live histogram. Mine has taught me lots about photography.

Take the lens camera off and shake the whole unit vigorously a few times, then hold the on switch.

Hi! I am having Fujifilm S1000fd digital camera. I have two issues. First one is with SD Card. Just yesterday i were having difficulty of viewing some pictures in the camera. At one zoom knob doesnt work ...


The zoom button is not for browsing the pictures.
Use the 4-way switch to browse the pictures.
It appears that there is something wrong with your SD card. Format the card in the camera before using it again. Make sure you have saved all images to the computer before formatting.

You have a faulty battery. Try cleaning the contacts on both the batteries and the charger.

Hi.

If you try turning on the camera with the lens cap on, you may get zoom error. Ensure that you are removing the lens cap before turning on the camera.

If the autofocus ring is held while taking the picture, or operating the lens this will also cause the Zoom error message coming up.

If that is not the problem, then the lens has troubles extending. This may happen because of dust stuck in lens mechanism, or because of a mechanical fault concerning the lens.
Any cause preventing lens from full extention or retraction will trigger zoom error.

Here a basic manual in PDF format.

Have a fujifilm finepix s1000fd and when I use


Your cameras focus lens is probably stuck.
It operates via a long metal rod, a pin which follows a track in the side wall of the lens and a tensioned spring. one or more of these has probably jammed causing the focus lens not to move when you zoom.
Unfortunately for this camera, if you cannot free it by switching on/off, tapping the lens etc, you will have to strip the camera down to get at the lens unit. you will have to discharge the flash capacitor before desoldering the control board from the main board before removing to access the lens.
Recommend you find someone who knows about this or send to Fuji.

Everytime i use the flash on my Fine Pix s1000fd it freezes


Some SD/HC cards will cause this problem.
You need to upgrade the firmware to version 1,05.
