    My daughter has a Finepix A400 with exactly same problem. Can it be repaired , if so howmuch?

  • Anonymous Nov 28, 2007

    My Fugi FinePix F470 also just out of the blue started showing zoom error and I couldn't get the lense to close. After applying slight pressure to the telephoto scope it did shut and worked for awhile and then the same problem. I was able to get it to turn on again, so I kept turning it on and off to see if it was okay and as I did I could hear an abnormal click each time, like a piece of something had gotten in the lense/scope compartment somehow. Well now it will only turn on and go to a white screen and I have to remove the battery to get it to turn off and the lense/ scope will not close. Is this something repairable? If so please let me know.

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.

Hi I have a fujifilm f470 finepix camera. One

Is it just the live view from the lens that you can't see ( totally blank screen), or are the icons visible?
If it still shows the icons but no live view then I suspect the shutter mechanism is stuck over the lens inside the camera.
Have a look at the lens and see if you can see the inner lens? You may have to adjust the zoom to bring the inner lens up to the end of the lens barrel.
If it is stuck then it will require removing and inspecting / cleaning.

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.

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!
