Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

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.

My fujifilm finepix j10 digital camera has not been harmed or mistreated in any way but for some reason is blurry when i am taking pictures and says ''zoom error'' what is wrong with it?


The internal focus lens is not sliding smoothly inside the lens unit. Probably due to dirt or some foreign object clogging it's pins in the grooves it runs on.
There are various methods for freeing up the lens without taking it apart and cleaning it but all this will do is loosen the dirt and leave it in there to get stuck somewhere else and cause it to happen again (if you manage to free it in the first place).
These methods include;
1. Turning the camera on and off several times to see if it frees the lens.
2. Tapping the camera gentley in the palm of your hand whilst turning it on ( Works in a few cases but generally doesn't)
3. Blowing air from a can of compressed air like the cans you can buy to clean out your pc keyboard.
I personally wouldn't try this method as it can make things worse.
You may or may not find these 3 tips useful. Personally I'd take the camera apart and clean it out properly

Zoom error ( stuck) fujifilm finepix s2000 hd


The lens is having a hard time retracting out that is why it is giving you that error. Make sure that your battery is fully charged and if it is, but still does not do any good, then do this little trick:

1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.

2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.

Chances are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.

Hope this helps.

Here is a quick fix to try. If you attempted to remove the focus error doing the 3 times on and off, and it didnb't help to this. Power the camera on, you will hear the gear skipping as if it is slipping. Right at the moment you turn of the camera push the lens in manually slightly and gently. This will reposition the timing of the lens to focus. This usually fixes the Focus error when the lens is stuck in the out position and never retracts. I have had this happen twice, and it cleared both times by doing this. Good Luck
