My camera DSC-S750,got knocked down while taking picture.The zoom does not go in and when i try to turn it on,a flash comes as if its on and then turns off automatically.Please help.

The shock gave it a mechanical problem. It is probably hitting an error sensor when trying to open/close the zoom lens and turning itself off to protect itself from further damage. It will need to be repaired.

Flash zoom function not working

have you checked that the diffuser is pushed fully home in its slot until you hear a click - this diffuser is for close-up work only and dissables the zoom flash

Will not stay on

When the zoom motor start malfunction then this error shows, to rectify this problem you have to replace the zoom motor(if component level repair is available) or you have to replace the optical zoom lens complete assembly. After replacement your camera work fine again.
Thanks for using fixya.

I have an Olympus SP 320 camera, zoom error comes up and it shuts off

I just pulled my 320 out after not using it for 4 months and the lens extended and zoom error began flashing on the screen. After reading a few other post on the net about how much it cost I decided the camera was a goner. For good measure I banged it on my mouse pad a couple times and the lens suddenly retracted and it is now working fine. Doubt it will work very often but might be worth a try. Make sure you hit it on something soft to prevent other damage.

Fuji fine pix A400 zoom error

the camera may not be dropped but the lens may have initiated incrrectly, like it was turned on inside the case that the something prevented the lens to fully mount (telescope out) to default capture position.

it is repairable with Fuji Techs, but if the cost of the repair is worth 3/4 to the original price when you got the unit and is out of its warranty, then it will be best to get it replaced, and you may use this camera for harsh environments, like outdoor trekking or a helmet cam perhaps, it just a personal idea.
