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.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

My fujifilm A160 has a zoom error


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. Having a "zoom error" is a camera malfunction and sometimes if the message error still persist after trying to turn on the camera again without touching the camera lens while retracting requires you to contact your FUJIFILM dealer because some cases where only trained technician can fix it.

You can also try to visit this site for some stpes on how to do it by your self. However I want to inform you that this is not 100% guaranteed. Just click on this link.

Please let me know if you have any question.

Thank you for using Fixya,

Hi I ave problem on fujifilm camera . It shows zoom error . Can you help pls ? thx


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Zoom lens bumped

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Fuji Finepix 2600 Zoom Error


I visited the Fujifilm site and it states: "Digital Camera Repair Service can be obtained by taking or sending your unit to a Fujifilm Authorized Service Center, or the Factory Service Center. If your unit is covered under warranty, you will receive an acknowledgment. If your unit is not covered under warranty, you will receive an estimate for the repair prior to any work being done." ................ After you get the estimate, you can decide if it is worth the price to get it fixed. Camera prices are continuing to fall and features continue to increase. You can get a Canon A60 camera for about $160.00. It has all the same features as the Fuji 2600 plus a lot more. So if the repair cost is over $100, you should consider a replacement camera. ................... Regarding repair time: The Fujifilm site states: "Warranty repair time at our Authorized Service Centers average approximately 5 to 10 business days. If the repair must be sent to our Edison Factory Service Center, there will added time. Warranty repairs sent to our Edison Factory Service Center average 10 to 15 business days upon being entered into our system. "
