Hi,
First off what is the make and model of the camera? How long have you owned it and how long have you been having this problem? Once I have the model information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

    Canon Power Shot SX120 IS 10x optical zoom and I purchased it in February of this year. I just started having the problem today. What do I do?

    Then the camera is still under warranty and I highly recommend you don't wasting any time having it repaired under the manufacturer warranty. Just follow this link to start the repair process through canon.

My Fuji S1500 lens will not go in and out? It reads zoom error


Put a freshly charged battery in the camera. Lay it on its back on a firm smooth surface with a cloth between the camera and the surface. Hold the zoom button in and while holding it in, turn the power on the camera. If the lens moves tun the camera so the lens points down and continue to zoom in and out. That may free some grit or dirt wedging the lens in place. If that doesn't clear the trouble, look closely at the lens and the way it sits in the camera housing. Check to see if the gap around the lens is even. If it is not, gently apply pressure with your hand in the direction of the widest gap. Listen closely for a light snap. If you hear one, the adds are the guid pins snapped back in place and you may now try the zoom. If all this fails there is one more thing to try, but it may result in further damage. if you will probably trash the camera otherwise, try this. Remove the battery. Holding the camera firmly by the edges with one hand with the lens down, slap the camera into your cupped opposite hand several times. Replace the battery and try the zoom. If the zoom works this time, with the lens pointing down, zoom the lens in and out several times to try to let the grit or dirt jamming the lens drop out.

Zoom Error


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.
