Fuji fiinepix S1500 display says ZOOM ERROR


Due to the tight tolerances inside the lense mechanism - small bits of sand or lint may become trapped in the mechanics.

It is advised to take the camera to a camera repair shop and have it disassembled and cleaned.

There are many small parts and intricacies that will render it totally useless if not done properly.

My camera lense is stuck and my camera wont turn on


hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.

thank u

Lens error causing camera to not work, HELP!!!


I just had the exact same problem on a friend's Exilim EX-Z75. Since it was useless as is, I was asked to investigate. It turned out to be a mechanical problem in the lense. I'm not too sure if it was a misalignment of the servo motor or if a gear popped out of a guide hole. In any case, if your lense goes in and out as it normally does, the problem is not in the main motor, but in a smaller internal secondary motor that adjusts the focus. Only try this if you are comfortable working with small tools and have plenty of patience. Took me about 3 hours start to finish. Warning: there is a capacitor that can hold a good enough charge to give you a jolt, possibly causing you to drop or damage the camera beyond repair, or short out your pacemaker. Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the circuit board and lense and display surfaces. Just in case you do get the camera working. Cycle the power button until the lense retracts completely. Remove the battery. Remove the case screws (6 on the bottom and 8 on the sides) and carefully remove from internal camera. The lense assembly is held in by some soft spongy spacers and a clip on the bottom corner of the lens compartment. Push the clip and the lense assembly should flip up revealing the back of the lense. Be careful to not put too much tension on the flexible circuit board. The CCD (that captures the picture) in the middle is held on by two screws. Remove that first letting it sit in the lense compartment. Then there is a circular plate that will reveal the focusing motor and gears. Remove the 6 screws and carefully remove the plate. There is a small motor and 3 gears that will be exposed. The center one might pop out. If it does, the small gear on the dual gear assembly faces down. You should be able to pick up the center focus unit high enough to make sure that the focus gears and rods are properly lined up in their guide holes and check to make sure none of them are stripped or out of alignment. The focus rods should be paralell to one another on the side of the focus unit. This is what I believe is causing the lense error problem. I would suggest after checking the alignment that you manually turn the gears so that the lens is all the way up. Turn the brass gear on the motor to make sure that all the gears are turning and moving the focus lense. If you think you have everything aligned properly, it's time to re-assemble the camera. Once you have the back plate and CCD put together, you could try to put the battery back and power up. If everything is ok, you should see a picture on the display and be able to take a picture. (Watch out for that capacitor.) If not, you might want to take it apart and recheck the alignment of the focus gears again. I had to do it twiceeven though it looked ok the first time. Remember, anything not lined up properly in there will cause the camera to malfunction. You should also have a greater appreciation for how sensitive a camera can be. DON'T DROP IT! Good Luck. Phil

Lens Error


first of all the manual is available on this site, in case you'll need it in the future. the manual says that if you have a "lense error" message it means the lense is obstructed, i'm guessing against it in your case, but its worth while checking to see if theres nothing jammed in its track. it's actually a known, and common problem with these small casios. i heard that a quick fix is that when it happens the camera battery has to be removed, and that should clear it, but the problem can also return, and after a while that trick won't do the trick any more. if you want to have it fixed while still in warranty don't wait to see if any of the common "blow air into the..." or "use some epoxy" fixes help you, you can try all that later. good luck
