Re: zoom not coming out

Unfortunately I have this problem as well. Sadly, my warantee has expired (camera is three years old). But this is what works for me: Turn on and off and repeat as much as you can. It should break loose of whatever is holding it after a while (sometimes it takes a long long time).

Good luck, hope it helps!

Hello and Welcome

The symptoms of this error is
  • After pressing the power button in capture mode, the lens would extend and a slight humming from what appeared to be the auto focus motor could be heard for about 5 seconds. When the motor stopped humming, the camera would beep and display E:61:00 in the LCD Screen.
  • Camera would extend the lens but not be able to focus on anything past 8 inches or so.
  • Zoom in and zoom out would not work.
  • Playback mode and the Setup mode was not affected.
To solve this
Put the camera about a half inch from a hard surface.
Let the lense go out and hit the surface and retract a little bit. Let it go out all the way when it tries the next time.
If that doesnt fix it, try this:
Turn it on and let the lense go out fully
See where the lens comes out of the camera? The little round crack that surrounds it? Wiggle the lense a bit and blow in there a bit. (Be sure not to blow on the lense!)

Now turn it off/on again, and it should be fixed

See the following video, It may also help you

I hope it will be Helpful for you.
Thanks and keep Using FixYa

The camera says please turn camera off and then on again every time i turn it on

while you are turning the camera on, hold the lewer which you use for zooming in. the lens should extend before you get the annoying message about turning the the cameroa off and on. then, GENTLY apply pressure to the lens as if you wanted to push it back to the camera. while you are doing this, turn the camera off (lens should come back into the body of the camera). this solved the problem for me! :D

Lens Error-Nikon L2

It seems as a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z850 Zoom button doesnt work

You have to send it in to repairs. You're lucky that the lens even still comes out.

Zoom extended but no power

You are going to have to send that in to be fixed. Even if you call tech support they would tell you that.

Lens on Casio EX-S100 Won't Zoom

(EX-S100) You need a new lens assembly. I know this from experiece because I have the same camera and it tried to extend while in its case as well. I found that there are plastic gears that extend this lens assembly and that they are basically destroyed when the lens assembly is not allowed to extend on power-up. I have searched for a replacement part with little success. I found one repair shop that would ship me the part for more than the original cost of the camera. Good Luck!

Camera powers up but then shuts down

Check out this similar post -,p241282/Ricoh-Digital-Cameras.aspx In your case though, I would try to turn it on with playback mode selected on startup, to prevent the zoom from extending. This way you will know if the problem is connected to the zoom, or other mechanisms. In any case, if it's not a battery/battery door/card problem, you'll need to send it for repair, or find a shop that can handle it, and it's rarely a cheap repair. Good luck
