Question about Fuji FinePix S304 Digital Camera
The zoom and focus operate on screw thread drives. 1 of these has detatched resulting in "ZOOM ERROR" and locked the camera up. Dis-assemble lens and re-attach drive.
Start by removing all the securing screws for the casing. There should be 2 on each side and 3 underneath. 2 of the one's underneath will be tri-wing screws (security screws) so you will need to purchase a screwdriver for this ( I paid £1 for mine on ebay). Make sure there are no screws located under the rubber cover for the usb and av sockets ( Im working from memory here)
Best to have a box with compartments in to put screws etc in as you dis-assemble to aid re-assembly. Open battery compartment ( this helps lock the case together) and gentley open the case. It will have plastic clips holding it together also so be carefull of these. The lcd is screwed to the back case too and conected to the pcb as is the key pad so don't lift the back away instantly incase the ribbons tear. Once you have the back removed its just a case of unscrewing the pcb and unplugging the different cables. I think the power board is under the main pcb so will have to remove this to get at the lens unit( Beware of electric shock. It does hurt!) Remove the fixing screws for the lens unit and remove it from the case. The zoom is on a long screw thread which runs from a small motor and gear drive. There should be a little plastic or metal attachment that runs up and down the thread which should be located on the sliding lens which is the zoom. If I remember the motor assembly needs to be removed to re-attach the zoom assembly to the drive thread. Then re-assemble.
