Turn camera on and it zooms all the way in

When I turn camera on it zooms all the way in and I'm unable to do anything as it seems to be locked in the zoom position. I've tried everything.

    I have exactly the same problem.
    I haven't tried anything exciting yet, I've only just started fishing for clues.

    My camera also zooms all the way out to an extreme close-up & none of the buttons function (menu, trash, display, etc). Have tried the power-on with various buttons depressed but no luck. Other fixes/ideas appreciated!

    Anybody find a solution? I have the same problem. Zooms in all the way and cannot use any of the buttons. Could this be a problem with the batter? Anybody try a new battery?

    I am in the Grand Canyon; just got here with my kids--took one beautiful picture, went to use the zoom and, same thing. i've tried everything. HELP!

    Hi, I tried the suggested solution several times and also all other press-one-button-while switching the FX9 on, but the zoom problem remains. I also removed memory card and battery, trying again without result.

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 panasonic lumix dmcfx60 is constantly trying to zoom and will not allow me to do anything else even though the zoom button itself is not stuck it will not counter act the fact it my camera thinks i


Your electronics appear to have a poltergeist. Check with manual or mfg if there is a reset of unit to factory defaults. If this or a hard reset will not cure the issue then it is time to go shopping since repair is not cost effective unless this was a very, very expensive camera initially.

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

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


Hi,
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:

Quantaray 28-90 for Nikon N65 zoom ring locked up


There is no secret locking switch. If a little gentle jiggling doesn't free the zoom ring, then I can only suggest you take it in to a reputable camera shop for a Clean-Lubricate-Adjust (CLA).
