Re: turn camera on and it zooms all the way in

Hi, i've an fx8. i had a problem 2 weeks ago. my objective didn't want to close when i switched the camera off. it remained open. when i switched the camera on again, the objetcive has closed and opened again, and remained in this position after switching it off. i tried some button combination, like menu button on, and power the camera on. it didn't work, but the second was the shotting button on, power on combination. an it worked, my camera did some kind of reset. it returned to the original position, and everithing is working since then. so try it.

My olympus sp-590uz will turn on but is then frozen.

I have had a similar problem. My solution was to check the zoom button. It seems that when it is "out of range" you can do nothing with the camera. Try to adjust the zoom a Little bit and you will probably be "in range" and the camera with work.

When I'm taking a picture, and i try to zoom, it zooms a little then stops, says lens error and goes black. If i turn it back on, it goes on, I just can't zoom.

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.muunlyte5608.jpg

I am unable to set the Digital Zoom to On, in my Canon G12. The Digital Zoom Option in the Camera Menu always seems to stay blanked out no matter what I do. Discussions with fellow G12 owners did not...

The digital zoom setting is only available when the aspect ratio is set to 4:3. The setting is accessible by pressing the 'func.set' button in shooting mode.

Describe your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 Digital

the zoom in the camera is manual, are the lenses moving inside, when you go from 35 to 420 mm?
Have you dropped your camera or has is experienced a shock of some kind? In that case you would need to send it for repairing the lenses, do not attempt to do that on your own.

Auto is stuck on and I can't zoom in or out or review pictures - shutter button stuck also

Being very careful, follow this pictorial disassembly (it's in Estonian, but just follow the pictures). Don't go any further than popping the top off the camera! Look for anything obviously broken off near the vicinity of the shutter button, or looking very different than what's in the pictorial. Keep in mind it's amazing what you can do with a little glue and scrap pieces of plastic:

Also, pay attention to the following post as there is some potential for electrical shock:
