The unit attempts to get the lens into a known position when the power is first turned on. If this fails to complete properly, the message you see will be displayed. It is hoped that the power off/on/reset will cure the problem. Since the message appears all the time, the zoom/fucus motor is either stuck or the mechanism is jammed. Some people say to gnetly tap the side of the unit while the power-on sequence is running. This may be enough to release the gearing. Short of that working, I would recommend that you take this to a service center. They will clean and relube the gears inside.

While zooming in-out camera gives error message means lens mechanism is either defective or lens drive motor is bad. In both cases, lens assembly will be replaced.

Sony DSC-P3 Zoom stopped working


i had that same problem. check your image size, the camera cant zoom if the image size is set to 3.1M or 2.8M(3:2)

how to change image size:
turn on camera and leave it in camera mode (picture taking mode)
press the delete/image button
change image size until camera zooms again
VGA gives the biggest zoom range

i hope this helps
it worked on my camera

Zoom error


I had the same problem with mine and I tried several suggestions, BUT the only one that has worked is to gently grab the lens, pull it out as far as it will go until fully extended. While keeping it extended turn the lens to the right until you hear a click. Once you hear the click, release the lens and turn the power button on and then back off again. This should take care of the problem. A word of warning. ALWAYS make sure your fingers do not touch the front of the lens when you power on the camera. Even the slightest bit of obstruction seems to make the problem reoccur. Another note. I had tried this several times until I finally heard the click, so please don't give up on it, just keep trying. This will work and it will save you a lot of time and money having it fixed.
