    Yes, the solution was right on target. A little hard to jiggle around, got a little frustrated but after a few tries, it worked like a charm. It is now fully functional and I am now taking pictures with it again as if nothing ever was wrong with it....

Before you start to do anything make a tiny mark on the outer ring (not the focus ring). that lines up with the bottom screw. This is for ease of reassembly, making sure that the holes are lined up exactly to accept the screws again.

Leave the FULLY CHARGED batteries IN!

You will need a set of watchmakers screwdrivers, a white sheet and a steady hand.

Cover your table with the sheet, 'cos its clean and easier to find things when you need them. OK now the scarey bit..(naaaah!)

As you look at your camera, you will see 3 tiny screws on the casing closest to the focus ring in the 2, 6 and 10 o'clock positions if you look head head on.

Using a CORRECT! size screwdriver gently remove all 3 and keep SAFE.
LAY THE CAMERA ON ITS BACK (LENS UP)!

Don't want any bits dropping out do we?

Now with a thin FLAT headed screwdriver, gently remove the focus ring and assembly by gently teasing behind the focus ring all the way around bit by bit.

The 3 part unit can then be easily removed. This is made up of the focus ring, a white crown wheel and the outer (top) ring.

See the cut out part on the main part?, this goes over the little black gear wheel that the focus ring turns. For clearance.

Gently clean around the area.

If the lens is out you should be able to gently wiggle it back into its correct seating. Try turning the camera on and off a few times and you will hear the welcome sound as the lens pops in and out.

Before you reassemble test all the focusing as if you were going to take a picture. Switch off.
Reassembling....

Take the batteries OUT!

Turn on its back again and put the focus ring (White gear inside) and very gently lining up with your marks to line up screws tap in the large outer ring. Tap very gently (with an ordinary wooden screwdriver handle, wrapped with cloth). around the ring in a circular motion so as to keep things level. If all goes well it should all be easy-peasy providing you are lined up correctly. If not gently tease out the ring again and turn slightly until lined up again.

I took 3 goes.

Re-insert the screws (dont over tighten), your not putting a car engine together!

Test and test again

Fuji Finepix Z1 Zoom Error


I saw another post in this forum were someone suggest banging it on a table a couple times, not to hard that you'd dent it but a good enough bang. Worked like a charm! I tried the trigger and slide method but while the error message went away the zoom wouldn't focus. Try banging it, it sounds bad but it worked wonders!

Zoom Error


try to manually adjust the zoom. My camera is doing the same thing. sometimes I can get it to focus after forcing the camera to zoom in and out a few times. No one well let me know how to get hold of a repair manual to adjust this, but when I figure it out I will post it.

Zoom Error


Lens unit has to come out to see whether the problem can be sorted out without spares going in. But unfortunately you have to go from the back on this model which means disconnecting and removing all 3 pc boards and the LCD screen and then loosening the lens mounting to slide the lens out from the back. You may have to dismantle the free lens further once it is out to see exactly what the damage is ( if any ).

If this error message appears, turn off the camera and remove the batteries for 30 seconds. Afterwards, reinsert the batteries and turn the camera back on. If this doesn't work, perform a manual reset of the camera. If you need an online manual here is a link with troubleshooting http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCW40_EN.pdf

The pictures I take with my Kodak digital camera are not clear


One or more causes may result in unclear (blurry) pictures. Some common causes and suggested solutions are listed below. The lens is dirty. Clean the lens according to the guidelines for your camera model. The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera model has recommended distances for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures. The subject was farther than the effective range of the flash. Each camera model has an effective flash range. The camera did not autofocus or autoexpose the picture correctly. For best Autofocus/Autoexposure function, press the shutter button halfway down and hold. When the AF/AE Indicator (Ready Light on some cameras) turns green, press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the picture. If the yellow light blinks, release the shutter button. (On some models, the light will also blink yellow if the shutter speed is too slow.) You did not use the LCD screen Preview feature to take a picture in Close-Up mode. When the camera is in Close-Up mode, always use the Preview feature, both to confirm focus and to aim the camera properly. If you do not do this, the viewfinder will not show you an accurate view of the picture because of parallax error. The subject or camera moved while you took the picture. Place the camera on a flat, stable surface, and hold the camera very steady. Or use a copy stand or tripod – especially advisable at telephoto or high-zoom settings, or in low light.
