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.

Zomm g1xn software problems


Yes, it's a hardware problems. Try using the battery.
If the result is the same,there is a possibility of damage to the processor IC (ZFX3). But before be sure, try measuring the voltage as in the image below :

Stuck in GN display usually appears because 1.8Volt voltage is not normal (or no voltage at all), and in general, it is caused by damage ic ZFX3.
Leave it to the experts to be repaired. If it really ZFX 3 is the case, then this can not be fixed, because ic ZFX3 not sold to the public. If you call the authorized service ZOOM, you may be able to buy G1XN mainboard. 11399294-xykdzr1cdriwl1tmr4ngy0qt-2-3.jpg

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 8mm Analog... 2 Problems, maybe more unknown at this time:


This does require disassembly to remedy the problem. There are various possible fixes. The most prevelant I have seen is cold solder connections of the board connector for the fpc cable from the top operation switch block ass'y. All you need is someone who can handle this task, like a professional. The controls that you are experiencing problems with are all linked with one cable and connector. One bad solder joint can cause serveral operation faults. Good Luck, magic seadog

Cropping etc is usually more easily done on your laptop or computer. Not all cameras have the ability to do it in camera. Connect the camera to your computer, or remove the card and put it in a computer and you can edit them to your hearts content :)

My screen size is in the 2X mode. I cannot get the screen size back to normal. Of course I lost the owner's manual. I have tried all the buttons on the remote w/o success.


the bottom half of the remote slides down ... that will reveil lots of lesser used controls including zoom .. you can also get to zoom via the menu system .. but its easier to just slide open the bottom cover on the remote and push zoom ..

I dropped my camera and the zoom lens will not go back inside of the camera. The camera still turns on and functions but it reads "Zoom Error"


Zomm lenses on compacts are so poorly made hardly any are repairable - thats why you see so many on ebay!! You may be able to get a new lens assy from the manufacturer but the price will be probably more than a newer camera!!
