Re: Zoom Error when power on the camera
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.

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.
If you are in a mode such as macro of some other modes then the camera is unable to focus when the telephoto lense is extended past a certan point, mine has never told me in that way, but I am sure that that is the problem, just zoom out to the widest angle possible then in photoshop you can crop the image later.
I had this error and did two things to fix it and am not really sure which worked, or it may have been both: 1) Charge your batteries or replace with high power (2700) type 2)Is there a bit of dirt stuck between the zoom bit and the body?
With my S1000fd, if I press the on/off while holding the zoom bit so it cannot come out fully, I get the "zoom error" message.
Try these: 1) Make sure the lens cap is off. When the camera fires up, if it feels any resistance, it will stop zooming and tell you "zoom error" 2) Recharge or fit new batteries. Use 2700 power if you can get them. 3)Is there a bit of dirt between the zoom part and the camera body? I had this problem after my camera had been in my overcoat pocket. I cleared it out with a stiff artist's brush. Do NOT use WD 40 or similar, as I found to my cost on another camera. It eventually seeped through to the works and made all the pics cloudy! 4) Hold the camera body in one hand and gently wiggle the zoom part from side to side and up to down.You will hear a quiet click in the mechanism. I have used my S1000fd lots now, and the initial "zoom error" problems have stopped. It's a fine little camera, I especially like the 12x zoom and the live histogram. Mine has taught me lots about photography.
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.
try to manually adjust the zoom. My camera is doing the same thing. sometimes I can get it to focus after forcing the camera to zoom in and out a few times. No one well let me know how to get hold of a repair manual to adjust this, but when I figure it out I will post it.
