Re: Lens won't come out
The motor drive is shot.
Depending on age Fuji's Tech Support team may have a solution- If out of warranty I believe they have a reasonable swap out solution
A repair will be expensive probably not an economical proposition

This has to be THE most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some
common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with
this problem include "E18 lens error" (older Canons), "ACCESS" error
(Sony), "Zoom Error" (Fuji), "Lens Obstructed" (Kodak), "lens error,
restart camera" or just "lens error" (nearly all camera makers lately
use this variation). Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely
make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera
shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.
Warning: This is only a last resort if you no longer have a warranty.
I used a variety of different methods, but here's what worked for my camera. Apparently the lens was just off the track.
1. Turn on the camera, and smack the back against the palm of your hand to get the lens to come out. 2.Hold the lens out until the "error screen" comes up. 3. Take the camera with the lens facing towards you, and use your thumbs to push on the lens. 4. Push firmly until the lens "clicks". 5. Turn off camera, then on again. 6. Hopefully cry tears of joy that you fixed it.
If you have some skills, you can open the camera and cline your zoom lens with toothbrush and compressed air. Try to separate zoom lens from the electric motor. usually is 2 or 3 screws. You will see a lot of sand inside the camera and lens. And next time when you will go to the beach, you will take more care about your camera.
Solution 2, and more easy is to buy another zoom lens from ebay.Or another camera same model with broken LCD or other technical problem than zoom lens.
that error code indicates the the Lens of teh camera is already defective., In most cases if the lens is stuckout or stuckin camera will not stay On or It will not Turn On at all. For this case you need to call Tech support to send you camera for repair toll free 1 800 235 6325 extension 12
