Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. 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.

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,

My fujifilm finepix S1500 reads "lens control error" everytime it turns on even when no one is touching the lens.


I have the same problem. It says in the owners guide to switch it off and on again. If the problem persists to send it in for repair. Mine is a few months out of warranty and they say I would have to pay for the repairs. I think they are aware of a defect but not willing to take responsibility. I wasted my money. So sorry, but last Fujifilm camera for me.

Lens control error


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Sorry but the Zoom Lens has had a knock, 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

Thanks

Zoom error at FUJIFILM F47FD


Hi,

It seems your lens is stuck probably here is some contamination in the gearbox of the lensunit. You can't fix this. The zoom must be replaced.

For UK call Fujifilm

Check ou this link: http:// www.digitalcamera-hq.com/digital-cameras/fuji-finepix-z1_question.html?qid=4289

After the basics (cleaning the lens, replacing the batteries, etc.), try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

If the "!ZOOM ERROR" message is displayed on the digital camera, switch the camera off and on again 2 or 3 times.
If this does not clear the error, take the camera to your nearest FUJIFILM Service Station for testing and repairs. Problem may caused by lens zooming gears stuck.
