I had a Polaroid i531 that would beep 3 times then shut down & the lens wouldn't retract.

I fixed it like this:

  1. Inspect the lens from all angles and you'll see that the lens assembly is out of sync. (My was looking upward ever so slightly)
  2. Using gentle finger pressure, press in the opposite direction of the abnormal lens direction
  3. I heard a snap, then I powered the camera on.
  4. Camera now works.

Camera indicates "zoom error". You can look at pictures already taken but can't take anymore. AND we are in Hawaii


zoom error indicates a problem in the lens mechanism, Its either stuck or there may be sand in there.. Is it extending all out? does it go back in? Sorry but the only solution to this is either to tap it on the side or take it to a professional who can do the cleaning inside or fix broken parts.

Hi, my nikon cool pic 3200, zooms in automatic on


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Zoom has had a knock
Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Zoom malfunctioning


This sounds like there is debris lodged in the zoom gears. Been to the beach lately? The gears in the zoom mechanism are very small, and even a tiny spec of sand or other debris can jam them up. Alternatively the sensor inside the lens that feeds back the position of the lens to the control circuit may be failing - so the camera thinks the lens has retracted all the way and stops. If the stoppage of the zoom action is abrupt then it is probably debris, if it is a smooth stoppage like the camera is stopping on purpose it is probably a position sensor. Either way the camera will require repair. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Power zoom not working


If you dont have rechargable NiMH batteries get these first. Alkalines just dont have the power anymore these newer devices need. If you do have NiMH and yours still having problems try and tap on the lenses as you power it on. As the motors that drive the autofocus and the lens mechanisim wear they draw more current. When this happens the unit draws more power then the batteries can supply and you run into problems. If your camera has a battery pack you may need a new one. They test them new and everything is good on paper but after some use things change.
