Ewagner 28's solution above worked for me as well! i replaced the batteries, and banged it on a table on all sides of the camera....nothing worked. Then I tried hitting it on the PALM of my hand and Wa LA! it worked......go figure!

I had the same problem. Camera showed zoom error all the time I tried to turn it on. The solution was easier then you'd ever think: move and hold the zoom button and power on the camera at the same time: mine worked!!!

Hey! I was trying everything that was suggested to get past the ZOOM ERROR on this damn camera and I started hitting it a little. My husband said sarcastically, "yeah, that'll fix it..." Well, the lens then decided to become 'unstuck' and came right on out! Try a little 'bonk' on the camera. I had changed the batteries just before this 'nudge', to no avail. Try changing the batteries first, then a 'bonk'!!!

Good Luck!!!

I concur with rogerstone1's reply. I just replied to another post with similar information and will repost here to make sure you get the info. Don't know of a repair manual, but found the owners manual at this address:

I have the same camera (Fuji Finepix 345) and a problem that may have been similar. When I powered on the camera the lens would extend but as soon as I attempted to take a picture the camera lens would retract and the camera powered itself off.

The camera is now working. I followed the troubleshooting steps at this address:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Gently holding onto the lens to prevent it from retracting during power off was the solution that worked for me.

My camera's problem seemed to slowly get worse over time until it finally stopped taking pictures. At first my wife and I noticed that pictures were sometimes out of focus. It turned out that my wife takes pictures using the viewfinder where I use the LCD screen. She wouldn't notice that pictures were out of focus. If I saw that the LCD was out of focus I'd power cycle, press the zoom button to get the lens to move, and/or try tapping the camera while holding it upside down and powering it on. Eventually it got so bad that we couldn't get any pictures in focus and I ended up buying a different camera. Then last night I tried the trick about holding the lens and the camera is working again.

I suggest you first see if the camera will power on when switched into playback (picture review) mode. Move the slider to the playback position and turn on the camera. Can you review pictures? If not, then clean the battery contacts by rubbing them with a pencil eraser and replace the batteries. Try holding the power button down for several seconds, it seems like my camera is slow to power on sometimes.

If you can review pictures in playback mode you'll know the problem is not batteries, battery contacts, or the LCD display and circuitry. Is the lens stuck? To jar it free, try holding the camera upside down and tapping the edge against the palm of your other hand while holding the power button down. As mentioned earlier, this used to work for me.

Try to manually adjust the zoom. My camera is doing the same thing. sometimes I can get it to focus after forcing the camera to zoom in and out a few times. No one well let me know how to get hold of a repair manual to adjust this, but when I figure it out I will post it.

I try to turn of my camera but my zooming in thing doesnt go in and if you want to take pictures it says zoom error also when you try to turn it of the lenses that cover the camera doesnt cover.


Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error (zoom errors on Fuji's) problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Zoom on fuji f650 stuck


Hi Sandra, Try power reset for your camera. Turn the camera on, and without turning the camera off, open the battery door and take the batteries out. Leave it for a minute or two. This helps camera get reset and helps correct the basic functionality and also zoom error. Hope it helps u otherwise u will have to take it to authorised repair center. Good Luck.

If the camera was on when it was dropped you probably jamed the lense coil. The lense coil is what helps the camera smoothly pull in the lense and back out. Now, just to specify, what exactly are you having a problem with? Will the actual lense not go back into the camera when you turn it off; or can you not get your camera off zoom?
Let me know~

Zoom Error


this usually happens when you turn on the camera with the lense cover still on. just turn it off and remove the lense cover and turn it back on again. hope this helps.

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!

Focus error


When that problem has happen to my Fuji A210 is because the slider that cover the lense has not gone all the way to the right ! I usually move the slider strongly 2 o 3 times to the left and to the right, and then turn the camera on. Fortunately, that trick has worked for me, so I hope it also works for you !!!
