The sensor or logic board in the camera must be fooled, or one of them is defect.
When removing and reinserting the battery does not change this, contact a Canon certified repair centre and ask what it will cost to repair this error. Then decide if you want to spend that money for repair or as a start for a new camera.

How to fix a Fujifilm FinePix S4000


some times small particles or grit get into the lens housing and prevent movement... try holding the camera vertical with the lens pointing down and tap the back of the camera firmly a couple of times... keep the camera in this postion and switch the camera ON and OFF a couple of times to try and loosen any foreign particles... you may have to repeat this procedure several more times before you achieve success...

You have a problem with your lens, maybe a decentered lens. Make sure there are no obstructions in the way of the lens. It may need to be serviced.

Turn off camera and turn back on will not go away


I guess your camera has the message turn off the camera and turn on again.
This message will occur when the camera has any malfunction. Could be caused because you obstructed the lens while focusing or zooming. Could be lots of other things.
If the switching is not enough and you observed the lens is retracting complete when switching off. Please remove the battery for a little while. Perhaps you could use the time to recharge the battery. Then when you replace the battery and the camera still gives this error, there is only one thing you can do: Please contact a FujiFilm dealer.

When turn camera on get message turn camera off then turn camera on again. did that and repeatedly get same message.


Check to see if your lens cap is on. If the cap is on, the lens cannot extend and you will get that message. If your lens cap is off, check to see if there is something impeding the lens and keeping it from extending. Your camera may "think" the lens cap needs to be removed.

My fujifilm s1000 keeps showing "zoom error." I don't know what happend. It's like one day it's working, the next not. I have a family member graduating Friday and can't afford a new camera. I've taken out...


Hi.

If you try turning on the camera with the lens cap on, you may get zoom error. Ensure that you are removing the lens cap before turning on the camera.

If the autofocus ring is held while taking the picture, or operating the lens this will also cause the Zoom error message coming up.

If that is not the problem, then the lens has troubles extending. This may happen because of dust stuck in lens mechanism, or because of a mechanical fault concerning the lens.
Any cause preventing lens from full extention or retraction will trigger zoom error.

Here a basic manual in PDF format.

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.
