    Hi, we have the same problem. When camera is switched on an alarm is sounded and we get the message 'ZOOM ERROR'. Evidently this is a known problem with this camera. For those thinking of buying one... DONT.

    My camera out of nowhere started stating zoom error. Of course I was on holiday and as of now I can't fix it. I did not spill anything on it. It just started doing it for no reason.

    Camera fell off desk next to PC after photo upload completed, fell about 2ft to floor, half an hour ago, no visual damage, managed to turn it on twice from about 10 attempts, then it displays 'zoom error!' and powers off. Love this camera and want it to work again.

I just got one from It was a refurbished item so I knew I was taking a chance. Straight out of the box it gives me a "zoom error" and will not take pics or even display an image. From what I've read about this it is most likely something in the zoom mechanism and needs to be fixed by the factory.
The only thing you can do is send it back to be fixed. I know this isn't much of a solution.

I accidentally poured something on mine and got the zoom error. Immediately, I removed the batteries and left the camera to dry, careful not to touch the lens with my fingers, using cotton buds and soft cloth (similar to what you would use to clean eye glasses) to clean the lens. After a day, the camera dried and now works ok.
My advice to those who pour something accidentally on camera, remove batteries immediately and leave it to dry completely, before trying it. Hope this helps, somewhat...

My fujifilm s1000 keeps showing "zoom error." I don't know what happend. It's like one day it's working, the next not. I have a family member graduating Friday and can't afford a new camera. I've taken out...


If you try turning on the camera with the lens cap on, you may get zoom error. Ensure that you are removing the lens cap before turning on the camera.

If the autofocus ring is held while taking the picture, or operating the lens this will also cause the Zoom error message coming up.

If that is not the problem, then the lens has troubles extending. This may happen because of dust stuck in lens mechanism, or because of a mechanical fault concerning the lens.
Any cause preventing lens from full extention or retraction will trigger zoom error.

hi try to reset ur camera...To do such reset, turn on the camera and hold the menu button down for longer than 5 seconds. A message should hopefully come up on your LCD asking if you want to reset the camera. Select Yes...

I have a fujifilm s5700 camara but i keep get any zoom error any ideas ?

The lens will need to be removed, stripped and then re-assembled.
The drive for the zoom / focus has been dis-lodged or damaged
