Question about IT Works Cameras

Open Question

I have a new Lumix lx10 and the wide angle zoom stopped working with the zoom lever two days ago.

The zoom out feature does not work anymore with the zoom lever. It works via the slider control on the screen but not with the lever. When the lever is employed, the camera focuses, but does not zoom out. The zoom in feature works fine with the zoom lever. 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 all settings 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: Rebel xt will focus but wont take pictures

I had this issue just this morning, and came here for a solution.
Problem: Camera functions normally except it will not take a picture, let me autofocus, or bring up the light meter in the viewfinder.
Attempted Solutions: First turned it Off/On. Then Switched lenses, same thing. Removed/replaced battery, changed settings. Removed the lens, and it takes a picture, replaced the lens, and it still will not. Then I came here, and heard that it was most likely an issue with the lens contacts. I've heard of Rebels having error 99's which were contact errors, and canon's official solution was to use a pencil eraser (like the one attached to the back of a No.2) and gently rub the surface of the contacts with it, and it worked in that situation.
Guess what? This solution worked instantly, and my camera is back to normal. I don't know if it will work long term yet because I just tried it like 10 mins ago and only after taking down all of my lighting equipment, but all seems well.

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.

Why does my Panasonic DMCFZ28 take pictures when I push the zoom lever?


Hi,
I suspect the snap key is shot circuited, use contact cleaner spray in the click button often press it to get ride of possible carbon shot circuit between the switch. in some cases the processor will malfunction, and if moisture or water particles gone inside, you must open the cam and clean the motherboard thoroughly with PCB cleaning agent.

The zoom lever is not working moves but doesnt change


If the zoom lever is not working then I would recommend buying a new pair without a zooming mechanism. Zoom binoculars are more trouble than they are worth. Sorry!

Pictures showed little white stripes, optic zoom


The electronics that run the sensor are gone. The camea can be sent back for repair, but the cost may be more than it is worth. New cameras like yous sell for $ 299.99 and up. If it was mine, I would toss it and buy a newer camera. You will get new features and more resolution. If you have a lot of accessories and really like that old one, you may try finding a used on in very good condition. Be aware of used since you dont know what problems you will be buying. Make sure the camer has a return period or warranty so you can return it if it doesn't test correctly.

Screen has zoomed in and will not return to normal resolution. Cannot even soft boot as the slider does not appear on the screen because of the zoom in


Double tap the screen with 3 fingers to undo. Then to turn the feature off, go to settings then accessability and turn "zoom" feature to off.

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 lever (Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera ) does not work


If you can get to the ribbon cable that the zoom lever is attached to, you can use a multimeter or a continuity tester to see if the lever is actually shorting any traces on the ribbon. the zoom lever acts upon a motor that rotates the iner lens barrel, possible the motor lead is open or the switch under the lever is dirty/faulty.
