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.

well i had the same issue and i just slammed it (carefully of course) on the desk and it started working.... does it still zoom or does it just click and grind? also try zooming in and turning the lens faster outward or the oppsite direction to see if you can jump it back into the correct place on the gears.... my best guess is that it got dropped or the kids sat on it... and it made the gears slip into a bad place....

I fix it!
This problem is due to bad design (I think)
The problem is cause of the guards/holder/stand bends a little the you turn the zoom.
I bend the guards just a little to the left.
This get the guards to stand straight then you "zooming".
Perhaps a little grease can help too, but what kind do you use inside a kamera?

Your camera is still under warranty, and what you are seeing is a generic message that means there is an error with the lens operation. Please call Canon and have them fix it for you for free!
For others who's cameras are not under warranty, you will need to have your lens repaired or replaced if you get the error messages mentioned above.
A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.
Don't bother trying to send the camera to Canon (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.
I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.
We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.
Hope this helps,
