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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

I have a fujifilm Finepix 2650 digital camera. I have run thru all its settings, even tried 'Manual' mode. But nothing makes any difference. It will auto focus inside when zoomed all the way, but...


Unfortunately it sounds like there is damage to the lens which is only fixable by replacing the lens assembly.

The labor involved plus the price of a used lens (a new one would only be possibly be available through Fuji directly if they will still repair the camera) would be far more than the value of the camera.

You can probably buy a used one on 3b@y for $30. (They don't pay me so I don't type their name)

Have a fujifilm finepix s1000fd and when I use


Your cameras focus lens is probably stuck.
It operates via a long metal rod, a pin which follows a track in the side wall of the lens and a tensioned spring. one or more of these has probably jammed causing the focus lens not to move when you zoom.
Unfortunately for this camera, if you cannot free it by switching on/off, tapping the lens etc, you will have to strip the camera down to get at the lens unit. you will have to discharge the flash capacitor before desoldering the control board from the main board before removing to access the lens.
Recommend you find someone who knows about this or send to Fuji.

Fujifilm finepix a820 zoom error ... i turn the camera on and it wont focus... message on lcd screen is zoom error. it will not take picture and when i turn it off agan the zoom bit wont go back inside


Hi,
    This problem is related to the malfunctioning of zoom motor, Two possibilities are there,
1- If company provides technical help on component leve in your regionl then zoom motor may replace.
2- If component level support is not available then LENS ASSEMBLY must be replaced.
   Contact your nearest fuji service centre or contact any expert nearby for the specific part replacement.
    Thanks for using fixya.

My Finepix 12.0 megapixels camera is having a problem


The focus mechanism is jammed inside the lens. The lens will not retract if any of the slide rings inside the lens are out of alignment.
Read my tips page on my profile under "the only way I know how" for focus, zoom error.
If you can't free it from the out side then you have to open it up and reset it.
my email is on my tips page if I can be of any more help

Fujifilm digital camera finepix a 500


Check ou this link: http:// www.digitalcamera-hq.com/digital-cameras/fuji-finepix-z1_question.html?qid=4289

After the basics (cleaning the lens, replacing the batteries, etc.), try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

Finepix A400


If the "!ZOOM ERROR" message is displayed on the digital camera, switch the camera off and on again 2 or 3 times.
If this does not clear the error, take the camera to your nearest FUJIFILM Service Station for testing and repairs. Problem may caused by lens zooming gears stuck.
