I used to get that error all the time with a earlier Fuji FinePix with the slide-over lens cover. If the cover wasn't pushed back completely, the lens would extend only so far and then give an error. Make sure that there's nothing (dirt, hair) on any of the lens surfaces and make sure the lens is fully extending when you do turn the zoom on. Don't let anything touch or bump the zoom while it's moving, either.
Not sure if this will help, since you have a different model. This is what worked for me, though.

I bought FUJI FINEPIX AX650 6 months ago.Now After taking pics when i press play button to view , it shows READ ERROR.another problem after taking a snap, the LCD display shows blank (color black) for few...

when having a problem with your digital camera. switch it of, remove the battery and charge the battery. When you replace the battery, the error should be gone. If not, you should contact the service centre closest to you.

When i take pictures, sometimes they come out with lines all over them.

shutter problem. put camera into full optical zoom, turn it to face you and angle it so that you can see into the lens without reflection. In full zoom the internal lens is right up to the outer lens so, even on a small lens such as this, when you press the picture button you should see the shutter close across fully. If it does not you will get either an over exposed or complete white out picture. Or lines across your pictures.
The shutter needs to be cleaned. There is grease in the camera for the moving parts and is probable that this is the cause for the error.
I have found this to be the case for fuji's E900, E550, F40fd, F470, F460, and a few samsung's as well.

Zoom error

You lens are tilted? If so, they are out of track. Maybe you bumped or dropped the camera. Try straighten them up with your fingers, very gently.

Screen error!

Sorry to tell you but I think you have a bad cable on your CCD. You have to take it to be repaired at a shop.

Zoom error

Hey MBB722,
What is most likely going on is there is something stuck in the lens obstructing its movement (i.e. sand). I don't know what you have tried and what you have not tried you can try placing the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing upwards, and then press and hold the shutter button and while doing this turn the camera on. If this doesn't work you can try removing the batteries and waiting a minute or two and then reinserting. If these suggestions don't work you should have it looked at by an authorized service technician such as bringing the camera to a Geek Squad® precinct at a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Broken Zoom on Fuji Finepix F470

Try turning the power on and gently pulling the lens outward as it powers up. This may force the gears to re-align themselves. Use "fingertip" pressure only. Don't force it excessively. Also try turning on, and then applying slight pressure to the front of the lens while you power it off. You can also try rotating the lens barrel segments while it powers up or shuts off. Sometimes either can get the lens back on track.

So if you adjust the brightness up or down it stays the same- is that right? Looks like a component failiure, if nothing happens. You will have to check out Fuji for repair costs -can be pretty heavy
