Question about Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera

Zoom error! Gah! What?

Alright so i got the finepix S1000 for christmas. I must say I loved it at first it takes clear crips pictures and I abosolutlet adore the super macro option. Alright so my problem is this zoom error. I am a complete tard and lost the manuel... I am afraid this ''zoom error'' is my fault becuase I keep it in my school bag so maybe I bumped it to hard. IF that is the problem and I can fix I promise to be more gentle. I am just not use to a sensitive camera...sounds like I'm talking about a person..meh. So losing my manuel has stopped me from looking up the problem and solving it. So I just hope ignoring it didn't hurt it anymore..and I'm very nervous I love this camera so much! I am also more concerned because I need to be taking pictures for school. I don't know I just hope it's not my fault and more importantly not screwed for life. Mhmm so does that make any sense? Oh and another theory is that it is to cold? Because I know a camera can lose power quickler in cold weather..GAH! Now I have another prpblem what is read error I will get this randomly and then it deletes my pictures! People keep saying it does that because I have run out of space on my memory card and it's making room but I'm sure the camera would warn me and say something like card full. So I am frustrated! I need help in more ways then ones...mhmm so is this message to rant like? anyways any help would be appreciated thanks for reading this long cry for help.

Did you leave your lens cap on when you turned the camera on? I did that and got the zoom error. Turned it off and then turned it back on after removing. That helped me.

Error zoom finepix s1000 fd


My first suggestion is to remove batteries and put a new set inside of the camera. Sometime the power fluctuation will jam the mechanism and give you a zoom error. If this does not solve your problem then the lens is probably damaged or out of alignment and needs to be serviced. I suggest you look for the local service center; I know Photo Tech is the authorized service center in NYC. www.phototech.com and they do most of those repairs at their facility.

Good Luck,
Paul

I dropped my fuji finepix s1000 camera and now i have a red light and zoom error


The lens housing has been damaged and will need be replaced, the rest of the camera should be checked to make that there are no secondary issues before repairs are considered.

My fujifilm s1000 keeps showing "zoom error." I don't know what happend. It's like one day it's working, the next not. I have a family member graduating Friday and can't afford a new camera. I've taken out...


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.

Fuji finepix s1000 zoom error lens is stuck out what can I do???


If you recently dropped the camera, you may have damaged the lens housing -- that will require professional repair. Otherwise, your problem may be as simple as low batteries or corrosion on the battery terminals inside the camera. Make sure that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and replace them in the camera. This cleaning works about 90% of the time, and I hope it clears up your problem.

Zoom error comes up on LCD screen when trying to take picture....


I had this error and did two things to fix it and am not really sure which worked, or it may have been both:
1) Charge your batteries or replace with high power (2700) type
2)Is there a bit of dirt stuck between the zoom bit and the body?

With my S1000fd, if I press the on/off while holding the zoom bit so it cannot come out fully, I get the "zoom error" message.

Hope this helps.
