Question about Cameras

Open Question

The zoom out feature does not work anymore with the zoom lever.

The zoom works both ways via the slider control on the screen but only with zoom-in with the lever. When the lever is employed for zoom-out, the camera focuses, but does not zoom out. I have tried all the settings that I can think would be related to this problem and have removed the battery and replaced but no success so far. I have also reset the camera to factory settings via the menu system. The fact that the zoom works fine with the slider control on the screen seems to point to a setting issue and not a mechanical problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: focus/zoom issue with Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 digital camera w/ 12x zoom

This is a symptom commonly listed for DiMAGE cameras listed on EBay for 'parts only'. Dropping the camera I had caused the same problem and carefully 'smacking' the camera once again did solve the problem but that may have been dumb luck. Sorry but it is a service task that may cost more than the camera.

SOURCE: Camera turns off when pressing shutter button

Sounds like a compatability problem. If available, try a genuine Canon battery new and fully charged.

I had the same problem w/ the same camera. My wife fixed it by doing this: holding down the pictue snapshot button and the video record button simultaneously. Low and behold, the focus came back. I was amazed! Try it.

My laptop screen is zoomed in which is making all my icons huge. It makes my Internet pages huge also. How can I zoom out so my screen is back to normal size?

Set the zoom level in Magnifier. This can display objects on the screen up to sixteen times larger than actual size. Follow these steps to choose the magnification level that you want.

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Magnifier.

  • 2 Select "Control Panel."
  • 3 Select "Appearance and Themes."
  • 4 Select "Change the Screen Resolution."
  • 5 Look at the left side of the "Display Properties" dialog window. About half way down the screen you will see a box labeled "Screen resolution." There is an adjustable slider in this box.
  • 6 Move the slider left or right, by holding down the left mouse button, and moving the mouse in the appropriate direction. Release the button when the slider is pointing to the resolution you desire.
  • 7 Click the "Apply" button at the bottom right of the window. The screen will go black for an instant, and then will switch to the new resoulution. You will also see a message pop up asking you to confirm the setting. If you are unsatisfied with the appearance, then click "no," and try another resolution. Otherwise, click "yes."

    My trackball zoom on my camera is not working anymore?


    The same problem with me, i do a hard reset and it is fixed, simple isnt it?

    To do the hard reset, just remove the battery for 1-2 minutes and restart the phone. This will reset the camera firmware to its factory default.

    Zoom will not retract


    Dear Grammie,

    You have either experienced a lens error or your zoom dial is broken (both usually caused by some sort of impact damage, but which can be spontaneously occuring).

    Look for an error message on your camera's LCD screen such as "E18," or "lens error restart camera." If you do not see a lens error but simply cannot retract your zom lens (go into wide angle mode) via the zoom lever then it simply maybe a broken command dial. Either way, however, you will need to have the camera serviced in all likelihood. Call tech support at 1-800-828-4040 M-F from 8 am to 12 midnight EST and Saturdays until 8 pm EST. Hope this helps.

    Sincerely,
    HeavyDLB
