Re: focus error

When that problem has happen to my Fuji A210 is because the slider that cover the lense has not gone all the way to the right ! I usually move the slider strongly 2 o 3 times to the left and to the right, and then turn the camera on. Fortunately, that trick has worked for me, so I hope it also works for you !!!

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.

Focus error - can not get rid of . I have taken out the batteries and still comes on screen.

The focus mechanism for this camera is different from other Fuji cameras in that instead of using 3 evenly spaced guide pins like on smaller compacts or, a motor and drive thread like the S5600 or S5700. The S1000fd uses a guide rod and spring and 1 guide pin to move the focus lens up and down to sharpen the picture. 1 pin is all that can jam and cause problems. Getting to it involves desoldering the control board from the main board just to access the lens unit. Then desolder 2 ribbon strips and secure 2 tension springs before you can remove the lens construction.

Focus Error

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 rate me!!!

Focus error message camera wontwork

I found this site to solve this problem. I got as far as tapping the lens, while turning it off. That worked but I still could not take pictures, so, I got the idea to put slight pressure on the lens when turning the camera on and was delighted to see that the error message was gone. Then, reluctantly, I snapped a picture...It worked. Hope this helps u 2..

I also had this problem. When starting the focus error alert came. Trying to move the focus button also triggered this. When I turned it off, the lens did not pull back.After being close to trowing it away, I used a little bit more force than before and turned the lens manually. I heard a click, and than it worked again. PS: Follow this tip on your own risk.....

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.
