Dropped camera, lens, 2 black pieces & 2 sm springs came off.
Camera is saying "zoom Error" and will not take a picture. I have no idea how to or where to put these parts of the lens back together. I was looking for a "lens assembly diagram" for a Fuji Finepix J10. Can you help???????

Most digital cameras jams are the cost of lens problems while zooming, with Nikon Coolpix S4000, simply use your fingers carefully pulling on the lens while turning the camera on. this can be done by getting your fingernail under the lens opening and gently pull.
It sounds as though your lens is sticking while trying to extend. Check the lens to see if it binds. Also look at the retracted lens and see if the center portion is properly centered or is cocked to one side and out of alignment. Once your camera is working properly, as you say it does at times, hold the camera with the lens pointed downward and run the zoom in and out several times to see if there is dirt caught between the lens cylinders. Sometimes that will work any debris out.
I am sorry to say that this design of lens is the worst i've seen from Fuji.
Focus error relates to the mechanism right at the front of the lens. The motor and drive gear are in the end piece of the lens, as opposed to other cameras that have the focus mechanism in the back of the lens and is easily access able once inside the camera.
Does the lens stick? or buzz on power up? If you tap gently, with your finger nail, on the actual lens on power up ( you may have to do this several times) you may find the lens comes out ok and no error msg is displayed (until you try zooming).This will probably be because something is jamming the gears or the tiny tension spring used on the gears has come off. I have tried to clear several A500's with this problem with limited success.
Unfortunately this is a repair issue with the camera. You may want to call Olympus Customer Service to discuss their repair policy and procedures. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.
I had this problem and managed to fix it. The camera was dropped on a stone floor and the zoom error was present every time it was turned on. A ring or other piece of the lens was bent or damaged, in my non professional opinion. A profesional repair is my advice. However you may try my fix at YOUR OWN RISK.
Switch camera on, when zoom extends, but before it closes down due to zoom error, gently but firmly push lens back in. Drop batteries for camera to reset itself. Repeat, if necessary.
My camera now operates fully and when the lens extends it now no longer makes the slight grinding noise.
After the basics (cleaning the lens, replacing the batteries, etc.), try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link.Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix.I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working.Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!
If the "!ZOOM ERROR" message is displayed on the digital camera, switch the camera off and on again 2 or 3 times. If this does not clear the error, take the camera to your nearest FUJIFILM Service Station for testing and repairs. Problem may caused by lens zooming gears stuck.
I'm not sure if this will work as I have yet to try this for my self. But according to others who have had this problem pulling lens out while camera is off and then restarting camera works. If this does work please notify. Or just tell me what happens when this is done
