Fujifilm finepix 4800 lens does not open

Fantastic camera - even taken shots for glossy holiday supplement brochure and they were all published!!! Everything works on the camera but suddenly the lens cover has decided not to open anymore!!
I read somewhere that someone had similar problem and they said it was battery related, not sure about this????

Please help!

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.

My fujifilm finepix S1500 reads "lens control error" everytime it turns on even when no one is touching the lens.


I have the same problem. It says in the owners guide to switch it off and on again. If the problem persists to send it in for repair. Mine is a few months out of warranty and they say I would have to pay for the repairs. I think they are aware of a defect but not willing to take responsibility. I wasted my money. So sorry, but last Fujifilm camera for me.

Hi I have a fujifilm f470 finepix camera. One


Hi,
Is it just the live view from the lens that you can't see ( totally blank screen), or are the icons visible?
If it still shows the icons but no live view then I suspect the shutter mechanism is stuck over the lens inside the camera.
Have a look at the lens and see if you can see the inner lens? You may have to adjust the zoom to bring the inner lens up to the end of the lens barrel.
If it is stuck then it will require removing and inspecting / cleaning.
