Well there is only one suggestion I can make and it is the camera needs service / repair by a shop.

SOURCE: stuck on zoom

I love this "just take it to the shop" It sounds as if there is a piece of foreign body in the lens drive mechanism and it's stopping the lens from fully extending. Or perhaps the sensor which tells the canera the lens is at the end of it's zoom is faulty. Those are the hard ones. The easy ones are maybe a loose flat ribbon cable connector. With a bit of vibration and jarring it's possible one leading to the lens is loose and just needs cleaning and resecuring to it's socket. I've got the same model here and perhaps it has the same problem. Open the camera and look at the lens assembly. Running on the left of the round piece is a flat ribbon cable. It makes a sudden 90% drop in one spot and the one I have was fractured at that position. Thereby disabling both the extend and retract sensors. The problem there, is just for a lousy piece of wiring you have to buy the complete assembly at a cost of $299 AUD plus freight. If you have a very fine soldering iron, steady hand and very good eyesight you could possibly fix it yourself. Good Luck BMW BMW

Based on your description, it certainly sounds like the zoom button is stuck or shorted. If you're comfortable with taking it apart, I'd try getting to the zoom electronics and see if there's any noticeable damage. Whenever I try something like this, I like to see how much damage I could cause first. eBay has sold this item for less than $50 with shipping (just in case you break something). You can also look there for parts cameras -- one listed for $10 with free shipping that might give you what you need.

Zoom--mm blinking and can't change mode


Your zoom motor is probably stuck. Remove the two screws on the front side of the tiltable head. Pry off the two tilt caps using a small flat head screwdriver (they are glued on). Remove the 4 screws found under each cap. Now you can separate the two sides of the head and take out the two lenses (remember exactly how the lenses were positioned). Try pushing the flash in or out (it should move with a little force). See if the flash now responds before reassembling.

I have a lumix DMC-F27 camera it will no longer zoom. No I not in movie mode.


Hi,

Do you mean DMC-FZ7?

I own one. Assuming that the camera is working normally, then I know two settings that will cause the zoom to be fixed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Suggestion No. 1:

If the zoom is fixed at the wide end:

1. Turn the mode dial to "P". Now turn on the camera.
2. Press "MENU SET".
3. Press the up arrow button.
4. Now, a menu item named "CONVERSION" should be highlighted. Press the right arrow button.
5. A sub-menu screen should now pop up, select and set "OFF".

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suggestion No. 2:

If the zoom is fixed at the telephoto end:

1. Follow Suggestion No.1.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suggestion No. 3:

If none of the above solve the problem, then the lens might have been knocked slightly out of position.

~If the camera has been dropped.
~If the camera has been thumped or banged.
~If while zooming, the lens was obstructed.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The zoom motor also could have died, it costs about $50.00 U.S. at Panasonic.com.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My best advice would be to contact panasonic customer service.

Nikon coolpix 2200 zoom mechanism


If the lens assy is not responding to zoom buttons then the camera is in confusion mode due to a sensor being blocked or defective. Normally it would go thru a startup cycle to initialise position of various parts in the lens assy and give back control to you but in your case it is not getting that signal and in your case I would bet on the end sensor.
