    I have the same problem. I think this product made in China. There is nothing to do. Just to buy a new one.

    when I turn my fuji S700 on it gives me a zoom error message. Is there anyway to fix this without taking it to get repaired?



    Thanks much for any assistance

    Exactly the same problem on my daughters A345 and only just out of warranty. Go on ebay and you will see more faulty A345s than those in working order. Tells you something about the **** build quality of these cameras. Fuji Quality - you having a laugh?

    I had the same problem, read this review and was ready to toss it. Old school approach, shaking, tapping on lens cap fixed it. Seriously.

The higher end fuji's are good cameras. The A345 and A350 are a piece of crap. Low end Walmart cameras.

Zoom lens stuck closed


Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct your problem. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:
And here's a video summary of the steps:

Fuji finepix a350 zoom error


Hi,

This problem is quite common with this camera. Try pulling the lens out gently all the way till the lens cover opens. Then you twist it gently till you hear a click and it should be fixed. Let me know how it goes.

Getting an zoom error on my fuji film finepix z90, what can i do?


Lens errors (zoom errors on Fuji's) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

My zoom lens is not opening when i switch on the camera and the screen is showing a message zoom error


Usually those symptoms indicate that the lens extension drive motor or gears are jammed or failed. This means you will need to take it in for repairs or replace it.

Unfortunetly the repair cost on this is not cheap and can come close to what a new camera is worth. If you have warrenty then get it fixed it will be covered but if you are paying for it then get an estimate and check it against the cost of a new camera.

Fuji fine pix A400 zoom error


the camera may not be dropped but the lens may have initiated incrrectly, like it was turned on inside the case that the something prevented the lens to fully mount (telescope out) to default capture position.

it is repairable with Fuji Techs, but if the cost of the repair is worth 3/4 to the original price when you got the unit and is out of its warranty, then it will be best to get it replaced, and you may use this camera for harsh environments, like outdoor trekking or a helmet cam perhaps, it just a personal idea.

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.

Lens won't open on my Fuji Finepix A370 camera


The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

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
