4/8/08 FOR ALL CCD SENSOR'S MFG by Sony: Found the answer. Sony Repair service is fixing for free any CCD sensor problems on "any" camera that had a "Sony Manufactured CCD sensor". I have now called the service center and they sent me a UPS Return label so I can send my camera in for "free" repair. This is good news!!! I can't remember the site I was on but they listed all brands that had the Sony mfg. CCD sensors in them. So call the Sony Repair Center to find out if your camera has the Sony CCD sensor in it. This was an error in the manufacturing process and they are standing good for this.

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.

I started having a similar problem with my Fuji FinePix F10 after about 3 1/2 years of problem-free use. Another poster had some really helpful advice which I thought I'd pass on. It seems there is an internal battery or capacitor which basically fails after a while, meaning date/time settings etc are lost when the battery is removed. (Some people claim this is a motherboard/chip problem instead - seems to be contentious!) So the camera is faulty, but the problem can be worked around.
The advice I found, which worked for my camera, was this:
- Turn off camera and leave off for approx 15 seconds before opening battery door.
- Change battery quickly (within a few seconds).
- Close battery door and leave camera off for approx 15 secs before turning back on.
This retained all settings when I tested it multiple times. I imagine it might not work if changing over a totally dead battery though.
Hope it helps!
