The zoom don't want to retrackting or open correctly.
It's normal when i put in the battery, at the biggining, but, after,
blue screen with error message MF00C.
What can i do ?
Just solved this problem on my Dimage G530. An earlier time the lens (inner part) was cocked to one side after a small drop. Pulling it back straight, out of the outer part, fixed it and the lens closed.
Then just this past trip, the lens was not retracting with the MF00C error and the lens looked straight. It had opened in a pocket and gotten bumped. I had even taken the case off but that did not offer any insight into fixing the problem. (They certainly cram a lot into the case). I was about to give up and just buy a new camera or was going to inquire at vistek to see how much it would cost to have it looked at this Saturday because I really like the camera. Anyway, to make a long story short. I decided to pull hard on the inner part to pull it out - basically try to cock it to one side then the other. The lens popped out to it normal position and now everything works fine. So it appears that if bumped the lens goes to a lock position to prevent any damage to the drive mechanism.

Welcome to Fixya. Having a "zoom error" message is a camera malfunction, in this issue you can try to turn off and then turn it on again but this time you have to take care not to touch the camera lens or try not to blocked the camera lens while retrackting. If you still have the same issue you can try to visit this site for some steps you can do before sending your camera to your Fujifilm center.
In regards your issue about the charging of your battery,as you said before that you bought your camera to the beach. Try to clean the terminals with soft and dry cloth. Also, possible that the battery has reached the ends of its charging life. Purchase a new battery. If the battery still fails to charged, you have to contact your Fujifilm center.
A lens error can be caused by physical damage to the mechanism that controls the lens, or debris that is interfering with the operation of the lens.
This article may be able to help you with a "do it yourself" solution. http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
In the event that your problem is due to physical damage and not just dirt or debris, you will need to take it to a local camera repair shop for troubleshooting-- though with most consumer digital cameras, labor and parts cost of a repair can easily exceed the value of the camera.
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.
I think a grain of sand was blocking the zoom tubes. This will not work if the camera has been dropped & the zoom apparatus is bent. It is entirely at your own risk & may invalidate any guarantee but they may charge anyway if you have got sand in.
I cut a finger of 80gm computer paper 1cm X 5cm. Inserted this first around outer zoom tube & worked it all around. It goes in quite deep so be gentle. I switched on to open zoom & tipped out batteries before it had time to close & repeated procedure. When I put batteries back in it worked OK. I repeated procedure with lens fully extended. I found a thin bit of plastic packing worked better as it did not kink so easily. It is still working today having failed 100% before.
Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).
if you spill any thing, like a soft drink,tea,coffee,etc. anywhere around the camera, when the lens barrel is open, it will cause it to stick when it is closed. so when it dries, you are stuck. put fresh batteries in, and with a rubber mallet, lightly tap on the face of the lens, when the camera is powering-up. do not hit it hard. after two taps, my camera lens opened up. you can clean the barrel with some wd-40, with a q-tip swab. use very sparingly. and next time, be very careful where you lay-down your camera. you never know......
