Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

You're describing the process known as "cropping". While this is possible on a handful of cameras, you would have to check your manual to see if yours has this capability in the camera. You could use any photo editing program to crop out unwanted material in a photo.

Zoom error


If you are in a mode such as macro of some other modes then the camera is unable to focus when the telephoto lense is extended past a certan point, mine has never told me in that way, but I am sure that that is the problem, just zoom out to the widest angle possible then in photoshop you can crop the image later.

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


I assume you have tried removing the battery and re-inserting. If this didn't work, I suggest you give the camera a firm knock a couple of times against a hard surface such as a desk. Obviously I don't mean anything that would dent the desk or damage the camera. This worked for me with exactly the same message on a Z2.

Hi, Sounds like a memory problem. You can try using the built-in menu utility function of formatting the memory (be it internal or external memory). Of course this will also delete all current files/photos in it. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
