When i slide over my lens on my finepix Z2 camera to take a picture it's just a black screen. However if i gently give the bottom right hand corner of the camera a gentle squeeze the picture pops up on screen and i can take a pic. When i playback pics there's no problem. The camera hasn't been dropped or anything and i've tried resetting all settings

This camera takes the XD Picture Card which is I think is becoming difficult to find however I'm sure that places like Amazon, Ritz and other big camera stores will have them along with online sellers on e-Bay.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
All memory cards need to be formatted before use to provide optimum performance. Formatting provides the camera a clean medium to put the picture files on. After each download the memory card should be re-formatted to clear the old pictures off and provide space for the new pictures
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.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
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).
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.
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
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.
With the internally zooming lens on the Z2, there's no external access to any zoom mechanisms. A "zoom error" is not eraseable until the problem has been rectified. My guess is that the camera has taken some sort of impact, which often dislodges the track in which the lens travels. Not much you can do, yourself, other than a few well-placed "taps" to realign things. Next step is to have it serviced by Fuji, but given the age of the camera, it's likely not cost effective, sorry to say.
Try turning the power on and gently pulling the lens outward as it powers up. This may force the gears to re-align themselves. Use "fingertip" pressure only. Don't force it excessively. Also try turning on, and then applying slight pressure to the front of the lens while you power it off. You can also try rotating the lens barrel segments while it powers up or shuts off. Sometimes either can get the lens back on track.
Knocking the bottom of the lens end of the camera 3 times on a wood table, medium gentle, fixed a zoom error (where it would not focus in zoom) The camera had been dropped whilst skiing holiday and this method fixed it. Very Happy!.
