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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Fujifilm S3000 zoom error camera will not take pictures


Unfortunately it sounds like the zoom is broken in the camera. I suggest that you try to vacuum around the lens and see if that dislodges any debris. Also fully charge the batteries or use fresh ones before attempting to operate the zoom mechanism. If this does not work for you then you will have to ship or take into an authorized service center. The local center in New York is Photo Tech; www.phototech.com.

Camera wont turn on after downloading pictures. I forgot that the camera was still attached to the computer and shut it down. Now the camera is still extended in zoom and does not turn on/off.


Direct downloads from camera to PC are heavy on battery capacity. Remove battery and either replace it with a new one or a fully charged one (note that Olympus recommend Lithium or rechargeable LiON batteries). Press the shutter release once to make sure that it is not in sleep mode.
Make sure that the camera is in "Data Transfer" mode.
Now start the PC, plug in the USB cable at the PC end, and then connect the camera to the PC.  Use the eject/remove function to disconnect the camera.  Now switch the camera to one of the taking modes.  Try to zoom the lens.  If it is still permanently out then you have a trip to the dealer.

Fuji A820 zoom error


displays and downloads pictures no other functions work

My FINEPIX s1000fd fujifilm camera displays zoom error! in red and won't take pictures please help. We put new batteries in and think I have all the settings right thanks ellen


Try these:
1) Make sure the lens cap is off. When the camera fires up, if it feels any resistance, it will stop zooming and tell you "zoom error"
2) Recharge or fit new batteries. Use 2700 power if you can get them.
3)Is there a bit of dirt between the zoom part and the camera body? I had this problem after my camera had been in my overcoat pocket. I cleared it out with a stiff artist's brush. Do NOT use WD 40 or similar, as I found to my cost on another camera. It eventually seeped through to the works and made all the pics cloudy!
4) Hold the camera body in one hand and gently wiggle the zoom part from side to side and up to down.You will hear a quiet click in the mechanism.
I have used my S1000fd lots now, and the initial "zoom error" problems have stopped.
It's a fine little camera, I especially like the 12x zoom and the live histogram. Mine has taught me lots about photography.

Lcd screen stuck in usb mode?


Try removing batteries and card and leaving them out for a while to allow camera settings to default.
Replace batteries only and see if you get "Card Error" message.
If you get this, then try again with card fitted
Check firmware version

Possibly card storage too big. Upgrade firmware to version 1.77

If you have no user manual there is a PDF version available to download here:

All the error messages are given in the manual with possible solutions.
